My trip to Peru starts at AMAUTA. This is my home in Cusco where I learn the languague, meet people, get to know the culture. Everything in school is so well organized and flexible. I had a great time here. Thank You.
My experience with AMAUTA has been generally quite positive over my 4 weeks here in Cusco. In Particular, thanks to a series of excellent teachers, my spanish level has improved dramatically and I've come to understand and appreciate much better the culture and spirit of "Los Peruanos". I highly recommend that anyone attending AMAUTA choose to live with a peruvian host family in order to round out the AMAUTA experience.
This experience was a great one of meeting new people, learning the culture and experiencing a new tema in my life. The people here are great, the teachers are fabolous and my time here was much enjoyed. Buena suerte!
I really, really enjoyed learning spanish at AMAUTA. Not only the professors are very nice but also the other people involved in the school.
You're not just studying here, also you're learning about the culture and you meet a lot of other people. And all of this in a beautiful city in the middle of the Andes...
School has been fantastic, and my family here in Cusco has been even better. I have made many new friends from all over the world, and can now curse in like 5 languages. Which is great. With my Spanish lessons, I can now order my own meal of guinea pig or alpaca or whatever kind of strange cooked animals they have here. Which is also great.
I thought Urubamba was a great experience. It was so relaxing and a welcome break from Cusco. I had lots of fun, and really enjoyed the expeditions. Being able to go for walks in shorts and have lessons in the garden due to the warmer climate was great. I´d recommend it to anyone.
I spent 8 weeks in Cusco; 4 weeks studying Spanish and 4 weeks of voluntary work. The spanish classes were great thanks to quality of the teachers and small groups. As my voluntary work I helped at the schools travel agency Dos Manos. It was great experience to see how tourism works in Peru. Accommodation with a family and at school residence have both advantages and disadvantages you should try both!
Also I was part of project where medics from Cusco voluntarly visited a mountain village situated about 1 hour from Cusco to help local people who hardly ever seen doctor before. We saw about 170 people that day. As a reward the mayor of the village invited us for lunch - guinea pig, the though of eating a guine pig is strange but it taste good (similar to rabbit). Seeing all the people and the conditions they live in was very emotional.
I had a wonderful time in Peru and I met great bunch of people!
ps. Be aware its bloody freezing at nights!
I originally planned to study for two weeks at AMAUTA but I decided to extend my stay an additional week. The course were challenging, demanding and fun. The excellent professors at AMAUTA immediately identified my skill level and planed me in classes according.
I highly recommend living with a host family. Not only is it a great idea for improving your Spanish, but you could make some lifelong friends.
If you are a history buff like me, there is no better place in all of the Americas to immerse yourself that Cusco, Peru . With Machu Picchu , Lake Titicaca , and the Sacred Valley only here you are sure to learn about the rich Inca Traditions and phenomenal ruines; The legendary Saciyhuaman is only a fifteen minutes from the school!
Studying spanish in AMAUTA is a great experience meeting other students from different countries eating and going out, sight seeing.... The teachers are very friendly, listening to the students. It seems like being on holidays while learning spanish.
Hi, I'm Nienke Smit, 22 years old. Last year I finished my study as a speech therapist. I decided to travel for half a year before I really begin to work. For as far as I have seen it, Peru is a great place to be. Cusco is a lively city, where you will never be bored. I have been here for seven weeks now. I have had four weeks of Spanish classes in the Spanish school AMAUTA. Now I am doing voluntary work in Cusco and I stay in the student house of AMAUTA. In my opinion, AMAUTA is the best place to learn Spanish. The teachers are really nice and capable. The atmosphere between the students (and the teachers) is very good. It is almost impossible not to make friends here, there is always someone to invite you to dinner or to go out. And, also important, my Spanish has really improved!
