I worked at a kindergarten for four weeks and I must say it was a great experience! The first day I was a bit nervous, because I didn´t know what to expect and hadn´t worked with childeren before. But already since the first day I felt comfortable there. The first and third week I worked in the class of 4-year-olds and the second week in the class of 5-year-olds. The last week I helped the teachers out a little bit, because the kids had holidays.
In general I helped out in class, for example I helped the kids with completing there tasks. And in the class of 5-year-olds I also teached the kids some english, like counting, the abc, some colors and animals, and ofcourse the head-shoulders-knees-and-toes song. That was really fun to do. I was quite surprised how well they listened for kids that age. And in the breaks I just played with the kids a little bit.
A thing I won´t forget is when the kids performed there dances. The first time was on my first day working there, when it was teachers day. The second time it was for the day of Virgen de Carmen, at that time they also got dressed in traditional clothes, which was really fun  to watch. Another thing I won´t forget is when the kids had to march on the Plaza de Armas for the Días Patrias. It was great to walk with them and see al the proud parents watching them.  So overall it was really a great experience, the teachers were also really nice and the four weeks passed by before I noticed. I really enjoyed working there and I can´t complain about anything.

I was very happy do to my volunteer work at a nutritional center for infants. The aim of this project is to provide children who have been classed as malnourished with nutricious meals and an educational environment. This volunteer placement was a really enjoyable experience where volunteers can be very involved in all aspects of the childrens daily routine from supporting/encouraging them during meal times to helping or organising lessons and to playing with them during free play time.  The children at the centre ranged in ages from 1-3 years, and the 3 classes were divided into these age groups.  As the children are of this age group being at an intermediate level of Spanish meant that I was able to communicate and understand them most of the time.
This center has limited resources.  The main portion of their funding is used to provide the children with 3 nutritional meals a day plus snacks.  The children benefit from a lot of positive encouragement to eat and meal times involve all members of staff and volunteers supporting the children. Both the teachers and the children are very appreciative of any resources/toys that volunteers bring to the centre. This volunteer placement gives a real insight into the difficulties faced by poorer families in Cusco.  The staff and children make this centre a really fun and rewarding place to volunteer.

I would recommend AMAUTA for the patient teachers (Ronald, Nancy, Libia, y Nury, y Ricardo). I not only learned about Spanish grammar but also the Peruvian culture and way of life. I really enjoyed my week in Taray with the other students. I liked the smaller classes that give more attention and practice for the students.

I would recommend AMAUTA because the teachers are very clear even though it is in Spanish. And it´s a lot of fun. It doesn´t even feel like school.

I recommend AMAUTA because there are great teachers. They are all very kind and understanding. They take the time to teach you something and they are patient. What I also like is that they’re telling about the country. That is really interesting. I also visit the place in Taray and that is really a must! It is so great there! Really quiet and a wonderful view! Beautiful. Right now I am gonna volunteer and the people at AMAUTA take really good care of that too.
I’m feeling very well here. Great teachers and a great school! So what are you waiting for? Come to AMAUTA!!

I would recommend AMAUTA because I’ve had such a good experience with them. I like that I can go to the school with any concerns I have about my travels, not just with questions about my classes. The teachers are friendly, helpful and patient. Best of all is the community of students –everyone is open to meeting new people and there’s always something to do. I was lucky –I was sick and my homestay family, other students, the clinic, employees and Lucretia at AMAUTA all helped me out. The school is a good home away from home and its so close to everything.

Existen varias razones para eligir la escuela AMAUTA. Principalmente hay una oferta de cursos muy amplia, clases individuales y colectivas y la posibilidad de estudiar por le menos 3-4 horas cada dia con profesores es optima para mejorar rápidamente todas las habilidades lenguisticas. Combinados con las clases de gramatica hay otros cursos cumplementarios que dan una idea mas concreta de los costumbres, las tradiciones y la historia peruana. Ademas la escuela esta muy cerca del centro de la ciudad, solo unos minutos caminando, y también ofrece cursos en otros lugares de donde se puede ir con facilidad a visitar la rica historia de las ruinas. Por ultimo la comparación con otros estudiantes y la atmosfera de internacionalidad extenden las experiencias humanas y culturales de cada persona que llega aquí.

Hello, I´m Milou Lunneman. I´m 17 years old and I´m from Holland. I came to Cusco on the 3rd of January 2009. At first I lived in the school , where you get breakfast and lunch, which I thought was really nice. The first four weeks I had 4 hours of Spanish lessons every day. In the beginning a lot of gramar and at the end we also spoke a lot. After these four weeks I moved to the apartment of AMAUTA. Now I share it with other girl, so it is a little bit my own house. We have to cook for ourselves, I also started with my volunteer project in an orphanage with about 20 children aged from 2 to 16 years. Now, because they have vacation, I work in the morning and help them first an hour with the homework and after that we have a programme, like sport, music, drawing, etc. I think it was really nive to go to Peru with an organisation like AMAUTA, because I was picked-up at the airport, I got to know a lot of people here and I had very good lessons and a nice project.
