I spend one week in Cusco in June 2010 with my wife and two daughters. We spoke no Spanish what so ever when we came and it is nice now at the end of the week to understand a little bit more. The teachers have been very positive and have created a good learning environment both for me and my wife and our two daughters who did not speak Spanish nor English. The school also provides other classes for free and we have participated in the cooking class. Recommendable!

Hace dos semanas Cusco y AMAUTA solo eran dos nombres en un papel. Ahora es una ciudad y una escuela con personas y lugares de interés que nunca olvidaré. He visto mucho y he aprendido mucho durante estas dos semanas. Gracias a mis profesores y la escuela hablo mejor el español y aprendí mucho sobre la historia del Perú. AMAUTA es una escuela excelente. Yo la recomendaría. Muchas gracias!

AMAUTA is a very special School because it’s location allows you to be very close to all the action of the Plaza de Armas but at the same time provides a calm and secluded location for education without distractions. The facilities are very comfortable allowing places to chat and have a cup of coffee as well as having stunning views of Cusco below. The faculty at AMAUTA is top-notch, very friendly and relatable, with many years teaching experience. As well as classes of Spanish, AMAUTA offers Salsa, cooking, and other classes to expand the abilities of their students.

Thank you, AMAUTA, for the opportunity to work with Rossana, Elizabeth, Marina, Raul, and Marlene, and of course the very junior citizens of Cusco. This volunteer work has allowed us to experience the universal magic of childhood in a culture very different from our own.

We have been made to feel very welcome at the centre. The staff has been patient with our emerging Spanish abilities and have even offered us introductory Quechua! The work site is very handy for AMAUTA students living in residence. The hours are well suited to morning people and leave a good portion of the day available for more Spanish classes, exploring, or shopping. The volunteers' Spanish classes that AMAUTA provides to all volunteers, were very helpful in arming us with the necessary "imperativo" form of communication - "!No golpees!", "!No grites!"

We believe the project would be better described as a municipal daycare. The hours are more accurately 9:15 - 12:30. We saw very little organized activity and feel that the best type of volunteer for this project would be an early childhood educator with intermediate/ advanced Spanish skills. Otherwise, volunteers "babysit" the groups while staff are engaged elsewhere.

To make the experience easier for the children and their families, we suggest AMAUTA/our donation money be used on an ongoing basis for prepackaged damp face wipes post meals and snacks, plastic bibs of all sizes to cover clothes that families wash by hand(!) - plastic could be easily wiped and doesn't require laundering - and toothbrushes and toothpaste ... there is a lovely wooden toothbrush holder but we didn't see the toothbrushes in use.

All in all we have enjoyed playing with the children and we hope we have made their days brighter.
Sincerely,

Maureen and Larry Green

I would recommend AMAUTA Spanish school because the teachers are all in all really sympathetic in their attitude to teach. If you have classes you have fun. The school is also well situated near the Plaza de Armas where you can find all facilities such as small shops to buy water, restaurants, clubs etc.

At AMAUTA you have really good and nice teachers. Their classes are serious, professional and really diverse. Because of this there are so many students with different nationalities, ages and characteristics. So if you will come to AMAUTA I’m sure you are going to make some new friends. Next to that, the school is located perfectly close to the vibrant plaza de Armas.

During my four weeks at AMAUTA my Spanish improved immensely thanks to the wonderful teachers I had.
Everyone at the school was friendly and accommodating- I felt right at home. The free cooking and salsa classes not only allowed me to fell more immersed in the culture, but it was also so much fun and a great way to meet new people. The city of Cusco was absolutely amazing…there is so much to see and do. I did not want to leave!

AMAUTA was a great experience for me. Whether taking group or private classes, I always learned something and felt more confident with my Spanish throughout my stay in Cusco. Being new to Cusco, it was a great way to make an incredible group of new friends from all over the world. The teachers were amazing as well. I am the third person in my family to attend AMAUTA. My sister went there and is now fluent in Spanish. My mother went there for a couple weeks as well and used her newly acquired Spanish skills on a recent Habitat For Humanity trip to Guatemala. Next time I return to Cusco, I will definitely be enrolling in AMAUTA once again. Thanks AMAUTA!!

I would recommend AMAUTA because it is a School which offers kind of everything you want. The Spanish classes are professional and can be adjusted to whatever level of Spanish you may have. Furthermore, the school gives you the opportunity to live either in a guest family at the student residence in school itself, which is located at about 300 meters from the Plaza de Armas, which is the centre of nightlife in Cusco. The possibilities of volunteer work are endless. AMAUTA will help you find the project where you can help the local people with what you want. AMAUTA will take good care of you and your stay in Cusco will be an experience of a Lifetime!

Recomendaría AMAUTA porque es una escuela "peligrosa" 😊. Primero pensaba quedarme solo para una semana en Cusco. No sé que paso pero después de cuatro semanas me encontré en el mismo lugar. Sí! Cusco tiene “algo” y la escuela también tiene su buena onda. Un personal súper amable y los profesores buenos y no solamente por sus personalidades bonitas. Para mi estudiar en AMAUTA fue una experiencia importante. Ahora estoy mucho más segura con mi español pero antes de todo: Como nos divertimos! Yo pienso que cuanto más ríes, más aprendes. Al final estuve tan fanática con la gramática del castellano que tuve que ir hacer trekking. Pasear una semana en las montañas para entender que el subjuntivo no era mi compañera de vida o por lo menos que existieron otras cosas también.
