During our two-week stay at AMAUTA Spanish School in Cusco, we got to know a very professional team of teachers and staff. We enjoyed being able to learn such a lovely language in such a beautiful country, city and location. It was a real pleasure meeting all of you, and we wish you all the best for the future. We can highly recommend AMAUTA Spanish school to learn Spanish in Peru!.

I'like to say thanks to all the wonderful people working at the Amauta Spanish school in Cusco. I have spent here four weeks and AMAUTA has convinced me.

The school is located directly in the centre of Cusco, what makes it easy to discover the city. It is a good base for weekend trips to all the famous places nearby, e.g. Rainbow Mountain, or Machu Picchu.

If you are looking for engaged Spanish teachers who not only take care of the language but of your whole experience in Peru, you will find this a great Spanish School. Besides the lessons, AMAUTA provides the students with a lot of interesting extra activities such as Peruvian cooking, salsa lessons as well as chats on Peruvian slang, and a lot more.

The accommodation is simple but very clean, and the AMAUTA team takes care of you. They are serving a plain but nice breakfast and a good lunch. AMAUTA also offers a laundry service for a small amount of money which makes life easy. Thanks for everything!.

My favorite thing about AMAUTA Spanish School is the friendly and helpful faculty. I lived with a host family, and that was a great experience too. They are very helpful and made very good food. If you talk to the host family whenever possible, they will help you immensely.

I had a great time at AMAUTA! my tip for future students? Try out a homestay! The student residence is really fun (I've heard), but there's no better way to practice your Spanish than to speak it with your host family and an I really loved eating meals with my host family and learning more about their lives and their culture.

All teachers at AMAUTA are amazing! So kind, helpful, and interesting.

Everyone at AMAUTA is so friendly! The Spanish teachers make sure that everyone learns something no matter how much time they have.

I live with a host family, and the favorite part of it is the lunch and breakfast together because they are talking to me in Spanish, so I learn the language even faster. I recommend living with a host family because you can experience Cusco even.

Hi I am Meike, and I am from the Netherlands. I took Spanish classes at AMAUTA and I worked as a volunteer in Cusco on a project for children. The Spanish classes were fun, and I had lovely teachers. At the project, I had the opportunity to put theory into practice which has helped me to improve my Spanish skills. During my volunteer work, I stayed at the student residence of AMAUTA. The location is great, in the city center of Cusco. It is the best place to meet other students and volunteers.
Now and then Amauta organizes activities like dinners, salsa classes, cooking classes, tours, or beer pongs. In the weekends I made trips to Rainbow Mountain, Lares, and the Sacred Valley. And of course, Machu Picchu cannot be missed. Except for the rain - I was in Cusco during the rainy season -, Cusco is great. It is a lively city with a rich history, and there is much to do.
In short, I had a great time at AMAUTA in Cusco and I would highly recommend studying at AMAUTA Spanish School.

Hola Chicos! Soy Davide and soy de Switzerland. Three weeks ago I came to AMAUTA Peru to study Spanish and to get a true cultural experience. The main reason I came to Peru was to get to know my mother´s native culture and language! She grew up in Lima but has been living in Switzerland ever since. It was always a dream of mine to spend more time in this wonderful country and to do so in an enriching way. Because of this, not only do I study Spanish but I also started volunteering in Cusco at a local dog shelter!
It has been great seeing my Spanish improve the way it has. My mother always spoke to me from a young age so I did not have too much trouble understanding, but my speaking has dramatically improved over this short period of time. Much of this is because of AMAUTA´s methodology which is very conversation-focused. Whatever grammar points I or my fellow students lack we are sure to review, but we do so in a way that helps us to use it in a practical way. We then typically go out on cultural excursions through the city and practice it first-hand with local people from Cusco.
I did not know that my mother´s homeland was so close to so many natural treasures! I recently took trips to Lake Titicaca and Rainbow Mountain and both were stunning and radically different. Every week I am able to study Spanish, work at the dog shelter and learn about Peruvian culture and then see an amazing piece of the local landscape, and sometimes all of these things happen at once! I cannot recommend AMAUTA Spanish School enough and hope that my fellow Swiss, as well as people from all over the world, come to enjoy the wonderful school and the city of Cusco.

¡Buenos Dias a todos! Soy Valquiria y soy de Brasil! I´ve been at Amauta Spanish School for the past month and have loved every second of it. I had studied Spanish for one year in Sao Paulo, but I felt like I needed to be exposed to a Spanish-speaking culture, as well as different teaching styles. That’s why I came to AMAUTA. One of the major reasons that my Spanish has improved so much over the course of this month is because I had different teachers during my time here. This helped to keep the classes fresh and exciting! Culturally, it was eye-opening and really moving to see how passionate all of the teachers were about their culture! In Brasil, we don´t discuss much of our pre-Colombian history, but here in Cusco it is an essential part of the identity of the Peruvian people and something they are very proud of. Each field trip to the museums or temples was so interesting information. Even the class where we learned to make the famous drink Pisco Sour became a class that helped me improve my use of the subjunctive!
My experience at AMAUTA has been one of the best of my life, and I cannot recommend it enough. And make sure to explore the city and the surroundings, it’s amazing. Here you see one my favorite place here: the majestic Lago Humantay (see picture)!

Hola a todos, me llamo Dieuwertje y soy de Holanda! This is my final week at AMAUTA and it is very sad to say goodbye. I took advanced Spanish classes in Cusco with a wonderful group of other students and learned a ton. The Spanish classes are intimate and interactive, and the teachers at AMAUTA really did a great job of making learning fun and practical. Every day after leaving class as I wandered in Cusco I found ways to use what I had recently learned in class; this made classes more fulfilling and really helped to ingrain the knowledge!
It was also great to go out of the classroom into the city of Cusco and to do our cultural visits with our teachers! We went to the Pre-Colombian Art Museum, the famous local Almudena Cemetery, and tomorrow we are hiking to the Temple of the Sun! Every class is different and that keeps us all excited and constantly learning. It also helps that the teachers are absolutely hilarious and extremely knowledgeable about much more than just the Spanish language.
Outside of class, I took a lot of trips with Dos Manos Travel because Peru is so amazingly beautiful and unique! I think my favorite trip so far has been to Lake Titicaca. The scenery is stunning and I got to stay with a local family on the island of Amantani and experienced their way of life. The family even dressed up my friends and me in the local dress and then we all had a big party in the town square!
I cannot say enough about AMAUTA Spanish School and its staff! I highly recommend coming to Cusco, and AMAUTA in particular, if you want to learn Spanish or if you just want to have a great cultural experience.

I had a really good experience! Everyone is very kind here at AMAUTA and willing to help you. The Spanish teachers are great. I loved it when we went to the monastery with Ana Maria, one of our teachers. We laughed so much during that lesson and at the same time I learned more about the way the nuns used to live in Cusco. I recommend future students to explore the city of Cusco and Peru as much as you can. You have enough time before or after your Spanish classes or volunteer work in Cusco. Meet up with your fellow students so you can do things together. It will make your stay in Cusco even more fun!.
