Hola! Welcome to the AMAUTA Spanish School blog!
Spanish School AMAUTA in Cusco, Peru is the best place to learn Spanish in Peru. We provide in-depth Spanish lessons and a cultural immersion experience for everyone. Our students step outside of the Spanish classroom to enjoy the Peruvian culture, make Spanish-speaking friends, and travel in Peru. During or after your Spanish lesson, you can, volunteer in Peru where you will really get the chance to improve your Spanish language skills and give back to the Peruvian community.
Here at the AMAUTA blog, we aim to keep our Spanish alumni, current and future students, and anyone who is interested in Peruvian and Latin American culture, the most relevant information about what is happening in Peru. We´ll post fun articles about our Spanish School in Peru, Tips to learn Spanish, how to get the most out of your Spanish classes in Cusco, advice on how to prepare for your trip to Peru, life in Cusco, Peruvian cuisine, Peruvian festivals, what to do in Cusco, and much more.

After hearing many enthusiastic stories about the extraordinary natural phenomenon of Perito Moreno, me and Vincent, both doing our internship at AMAUTA Spanish School Buenos Aires, decided to travel to the south of Argentina , to El Calafate. This cute little town is home to one of the most impressive glaciers worldwide: el Perito Moreno. El Calafate has become a very popular tourist destination in Argentina since the opening of their international airport. Not only for young backpackers and travelers, but also for Argentineans and travelers from other Latin-American countries. No wonder, because this is something you won’t find in many other places around the world, especially not with the current climate changes. This makes the Perito Moreno one of the most stunning sites in South America.
There have already been so many amazing and colorful celebrations in Cusco during the month of June, like for instance Inti Raymi. But we are not ready yet with the upcoming Festival in the Andean Village of Paucartambo: the Virgen del Carmen.
For Spanish students, volunteers and travelers in Cusco, Paucartambo is the place to be on July 15 and July 16. La Fiesta of La Virgen del Carmen – by the local people also called nicely Mamacha Carmen – is a great colorfull happening with many music bands and traditional dances in awesome costumes.
Brandon from NYC tells us his story
Brandon Sloan is a 29-year-old volunteer from New York City who has come to Cusco to make something meaningful of his travels to Peru. His volunteer experience at AMAUTA Spanish School has been fun, enjoyable and interesting as he works with kids at an after-school program. Each day from 2:00 to 4:30 he helps the Peruvian children with their homework, plays with them, and answers their many questions about how to say Spanish words in English.
