I'm staying here for 2 weeks now, still 2 weeks to go. Already I know how to have a conversation in Spanish, even if it is a small one. The teachers here are great and for sure they know what they are doing. I stay at a guest family and that is very helpful to my Spanish. The family is great and they have been carefully selected, that's obvious. I would recommend staying at a family. The students here at AMAUTA are also very nice, everybody is in the same position that's why we are all one big group with several levels of Spanish.
Las clases son muy buenas y los profesores excelentes.
Pasé un lindo tiempo aquí!
The school is very nice, teacher good and clear. You learn very fast; but I recommend to stay in a family, in order to learn better. The activities are nice as well.
AMAUTA es una escuela muy profesional. Los profesores son muy amables y tan trabajadores como los estudiantes. Desde el primer día se habla en español. Por tanto se aprende mucho en poco tiempo. Para los extranjeros esta es la mejor manera de estudiar español.
Studying Castellano in Cusco at AMAUTA was an interesting experience. There were many opportunities for the students both in and out of the classroom. In the classroom the instruction was well balanced between grammar, discussion, and an occasional short lecture on some aspect of the local area. These lectures were both interesting and a good start for questions and further discussions.
In the classes there were students from many countries. Each student seemed to have his or her own special accent and this helped to improve my listening skills.
The school was very service oriented for both students and the community. There were many activities scheduled for the students outside of class as well as volunteer opportunities, all of which would help to improve the students Spanish.
Finally, there is something special about the Andes . I doubt if I ever will forget the first time I saw the mountains!
I've had group lessons for almost 3 weeks now, and I'm staying at the school residence. I'm enjoying the lessons, the teachers are well qualified and I feel that I've learned a lot in the past 3 weeks.
Staying at the residence gives you the opportunity of meeting new people every week from all over the world, although it's not so good for practicing Spanish as a lot of people speak English…..
I think lessons in a group are quite entertaining because you get to know your fellow students while conversating in Spanish. The school and the residence are well based, close to the main square where all the restaurants, bars and shops are.
After having traveled in Spanish speaking countries for a long time, I really wanted to enhance my Spanish. On the internet, I found AMAUTA. I stayed in the residence and found a lot of people who are interested in enhancing their Spanish too. I had a very good time here. Especially the teachers are very good. They help you on exactly the right level (I had individual classes), and are also interested in what you do in normal life. It makes conversations (once you reach that level) truly interesting.
Of course Cuzco is a very nice place to stay, with good (and cheap) restaurants, nice clubs and bars.
I have been to many Spanish schools in Central and South America and AMAUTA compares very favorably with a few of the best. I arrived during an extensive briefing for new students. I was amazed to hear that a doctor visited the school each day. That is just one example of the concern the school has for the students welfare.
The teachers are qualified, experienced and highly professional in their approach and at the same time friendly and relaxed. I have been learning a great deal about Cusco, its history and its people during my lessons.
Students can stay with local families for a very reasonable cost. My accommodation is excellent and if you enjoy eating I challenge you to have Cusco meals a day.
Obviously one of my main reasons for coming to the school was that it is situated in Cusco, the famous city of the Incas, now a World Monument. Here in Cusco is living history, in the mix of races, the mix of Inca and Spanish styles in the buildings. Cusco is not far from Machu Picchu, the famous lost city of the Incas.
The School even has a travel agency attached to help you get about. So, come to Cusco and come to AMAUTA.
AMAUTA may be the biggest Language School in Cusco but it provided me with the personal attention I needed to rapidly improve my Spanish. I came for one week and stayed for 2.
The school provided a great community with students from around the world, many have become lasting friends and travel partners.
AMAUTA provided me with a good start to my travels both in welcoming me to South America and giving me a strong foundation in Spanish.
I have really enjoyed my time at AMAUTA and Cusco . I was a complete beginner in Spanish when I arrived but the course was well structured and the teachers have been excellent, both professional and friendly.
I specially enjoyed staying with my guest family who not only helped to improve my Spanish but welcomed me into their family and I was included in their lifes and traditions.
Cusco has lots of history and many attractions, buy is also a great base for visiting the Sacred Valley , Lake Titicaca and Machu Picchu.
I would recommend AMAUTA to anyone who wants to learn Spanish and experience the Peruvian culture.
