Prepare yourself for your stay in Cusco, by reading about the experiences of our former AMAUTA Spanish Students. They come from all over the world and are a great guide for future guests here at the school.
Check out how they look back on their Spanish Program in Peru, either in Cusco, the Sacred Valley or the Peruvian Rainforest. Reading these testimonials will give you some good tips about living the Peruvian life, finding accommodation in Cusco and interesting insider information. Our former students might be able to help you decide whether you want to stay with a Peruvian host family or at the AMAUTA student residence in Cusco.
Also, the students sometimes tell in detail about the trips they have done in this great country. Get inspired and who knows, you might be next to leave us a message about your trip to Machu Pichu, Colca Canyon, Lake Titicaca or Huacachina!.
Hola, yo soy Julius! I am from Prague, in the Czech Republic! Studying Spanish is my hobby, and I usually take trips to Spain once a year. This is my first time in Latin America, and I am enjoying myself very much. I love everything about the Spanish-speaking world—the language, the culture, the cooking, etc.
I studied Spanish at AMAUTA´s school in Cusco for four weeks. My experience was awesome, as I met tons of interesting people from all over the world, including a good friend from Switzerland! I especially enjoyed the time I spent in classes with my Spanish professors. I feel like I really connected with them, and I think we will keep in touch! I love being given the opportunity to improve my Spanish and immerse myself in the Peruvian culture here in Cusco.
I´m excited to say that I will continue my time here at AMAUTA volunteering at a local primary school in Cusco for the next two months!..
Hola, soy Frederico! I am from Italy.
I studied at AMAUTA Cuscovfor four weeks. I think that my Spanish improved a lot while I was here because I was able to immerse myself in the Spanish language both inside and outside of the classroom. I felt my classes prepared me for the exchanges I had with the local people in Peru because they focused on real language acquisition, rather than just the writing or the grammar. It was so incredible to be able to practice what I learned in class throughout my time exploring Cusco!.
I also lived at the residence in the school and participated in some of the free activities, including the Peruvian cooking classes, which I liked a lot because Carmen (AMAUTA’s chef) is amazing! I also went to a chat about the Quechua language, which was very interesting. I would highly recommend AMAUTA to anyone interested in studying Spanish in Peru..
My name is Lars Kappeler and I studied Spanish here for 11 weeks. I liked my classes; they were interesting, I learned a lot, and the professors are just nice people. My Spanish improved a lot! I came here with no Spanish and now I can talk fluently. My homestay family experience was also really good because I could practice my Spanish at home. I would recommend studying at Amauta because it is a good school!.
My name is Aleksandra Vernekohl, and I volunteered through Amauta Spanish School in Cusco. I volunteered at an after-school project, where I played with the kids, helped with their homework, and helped prepare their daily snack. It was cool to see how I could make the kids happy by spending time with them. I would, of course, recommend volunteering with Amauta Spanish School because I loved the children here and it was a great experience.
My name is Daniela, I´m from Austria, and I´ve been here for two weeks learning Spanish in Peru. I liked my Spanish classes; the professors are all really good, and I liked their teaching method. My Spanish improved, though two weeks isn´t much time, so it would have been nice to stay longer to learn more. I enjoyed the activities that they offered, as the cooking class. I would recommend Amauta Spanish School, in fact, I hope I can come back next year!
I volunteered with Amauta Spanish School for 3 weeks. I worked in a home for children and moms in Cusco who have lived on the street.
There are about 20 kids and 4 moms in total, so it´s a big group, but a lot of fun! I mostly helped the kids with their homework, helped to keep them focused on their tasks, and played with them on the playground and at home.
I would recommend volunteering with Amauta because they provide a lot of support and an open atmosphere. And I loved my project!.
My name is Francesca Loux and I studied Spanish here in Peru for four weeks. I did Spanish group lessons and 1 hour of individual classes per day. I liked the classes because the teachers were very engaging and the other students were great as well. I feel like my Spanish improved a lot. Before I came here, I knew a few things from traveling, but AMAUTA really helped me get up to speed on the grammar side of things. I learned more about the different tenses and conjugations. I would absolutely recommend studying at AMAUTA Spanish School because the teachers here are easy to talk to, everyone at the school is very engaging and welcoming, and the teaching style is very effective!.
My name is Sennad and I studied at AMAUTA Peru for 4 weeks. It was really nice and fun. I loved staying in the student residence in Cusco; it was a fun community and made it easier to get to know the other students. My Spanish definitely improved while I was here, and now I feel more prepared for the rest of my travels through South America. Overall, Cusco is a great city; the plaza is great and the people are so friendly. I would recommend AMAUTA Spanish School because it is just a really nice place to be!.
My Name is Ben and I studied for 4 weeks here at AMAUTA Spanish school. I took Spanish group classes and liked them a lot. I enjoyed the professors and the students; it was a good atmosphere. The schedule was nice because we had time in the afternoon to go around and explore Cusco. I feel like my Spanish improved a lot, and now I think I am at the point where I can understand most things, but I just need to practice conversation. The Christmas dinner with all the teachers, families, and students was really nice. I would recommend studying at this school!.
I took four weeks of Spanish classes at AMAUTA Peru and after that I volunteered at the local Sports Institute in Cusco.
I really liked the school´s environment. It was a nice, humble environment. The teachers at AMAUTA not only talk to students in class, but also make an effort outside of class as well.
They were really great about making students feel welcome, which is really important for students traveling in Peru!.
