The AMAUTA School offers a great mix of excellent professors, friendly staff and a collegial environment for students of all ages and backgrounds. I was placed with a fantastic host family who also made my stay in Cusco complete. Having the Dos Manos travel agency on-site was also helpful in planning weekend trips and overall my experience at AMAUTA was memorable and I look forward to staying in touch with my instructors and fellow students.
I recommend AMAUTA to everyone who wants to learn, improve and perfect their Spanish. The teachers are young, energetic and really nice. During classes we do a lot of activities and we can talk and express ourselves. In just a few weeks we can achieve a good level of Spanish without talking a word before.
At first: AMAUTA has a school in a beautiful location – Cusco is a lovely city. Professional and cheerful teachers are working at AMAUTA. From the beginning you have to speak Spanish, but when you really don't understand it, they help you in English.
Besides it's great that AMAUTA organizes activities such as dancing or cooking classes and trips to other cities. So you learn about the Peruvian culture and also get to know more friends.
Shortly: thanks to AMAUTA you speak in no time Spanish
The school offers a program for the classes based on knowledge. The teachers lead the students to good pronunciation and help them to get to know a lot of vocabularies with the material they bring to classes. The staff in the office helps the students a lot with all the problems and questions they have.
The combination of teaching and support are amazing, so that we not only recommend AMAUTA, but also came back a couple of times and will come back in the future.
Good place, nice atmosphere, friendly and motivated teachers. Typical rooms, nice terrace, good service, computers and free wi-fi.
I like AMAUTA, because of the wonderful and very nice teachers. In my first week I had Nury and Elvira. The teachers can also speak English, so in the first few days you get a lot of help. After a few days you can also speak the Spanish you need and understand Spanish. In the host family you’ll learn the Peruvian customs. For me it was the best to live in a guest family first, because you can practice what you learned at school. The school also helps you out with questions or organizing trips.
I decided to come to AMAUTA because, having grown up overseas, I wanted to continue studying in a foreign environment. During my time at AMAUTA I volunteered as both a teacher and assistant at local Peruvian schools, and was a Spanish language student at the school in Cusco. AMAUTA specializes in teaching interested students the Spanish language and providing enthusiastic individuals with volunteering opportunities.
To study Spanish while being on vacation, Cusco is a nice place to go to. Having now spent 5 of my 8 weeks here the only bad thing about the school I can think of is its street (which is killing me every time I have to walk up). But teachers are funny, the school is next to the center and people working in the residence are more than friendly (always good to practice my Spanish with them). There is also the possibility to spend a week with the school in the Sacred Valley. As that week has been amazing for me, I highly recommend it. Cusco has so much to offer that it´s really up to you to make it an awesome trip.
AMAUTA was a really nice experience, the landscape is beautiful,Machu Picchu amazing and the possibility to meet people from different countries. That´s why I recommend AMAUTA to others who would like to see Peru and maybe later travel in South America.
I would recommend AMAUTA to anyone who wants to learn Spanish, no matter what level they are. I have had a great experience meeting the other students and the teachers were so helpful and friendly. The school has a good mixture of classroom activities and excursions. I also had a great experience at the school in the Sacred Valley – the food was incredible. I would definitely return to the school.
