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.

Last month at AMAUTA Spanish School in Peru, some great work has been done by a group of volunteers from the Rice University in the States. While all of the students were living in our student residence at the Calle Suecia and eating lunch at the school, they participated in our free cultural activities, and volunteering program in Cusco.
As a student studying Spanish in Cusco I noticed that taking local buses in Peru is not like taking a bus at home. In my home country buses are expected to leave on time, to not take too many people on board and to stop at the designated stops. Here in Peru it works slightly different. There is no bus schedule telling you at what time the bus leaves, busses are often really, REALLY full and, except for in big cities such as Lima, you can basically jump on and off whenever you like. You just flag down a bus and jump on. Travelling from the Spanish school to my home in Cusco I need to take buses all the time. To me it`s a mystery how people know what bus to take. Looking up buses on the internet is not possible, there are no ticket offices and nowhere is indicated where you’re heading to.
