Welcome to our Blog

Hola!  Welcome to the AMAUTA Spanish Schools blog!

At our Spanish Schools in Cusco and Buenos Aires, we provide the best Spanish courses and cultural immersion experiences for our students.  We encourage our students to step outside of the Spanish classroom, to enjoy the local culture, make Spanish-speaking friends, and travel in Peru and Argentina.  During or after finishing your Spanish course, we greatly encourage participation in our volunteer program in Cusco or Buenos Aires, where you will really get the chance to practice and improve your  Spanish language skills and give back to local community.

Here at our AMAUTA blog, we aim to keep you posted about what is happening out our Spanish schools, as well as what´s going on in and around the cities of Cusco and Buenos Aires.  We´ll also post fun articles about Peruvian and Argentinian culture, cuisine,  local fiestas, what to see in Cusco, & where to go in Buenos Aires, etc. 

We´ll include advice about which weekend excursions to sign up for and which free cultural activities are available. And after reading our section of student reports, you´ll know exactly why you want to study Spanish at AMAUTA in Cusco and Buenos Aires.

Meet this group of amazing volunteers here at AMAUTA Cusco, Peru. Hailey, Alex, Allison, Bill, Cayla, Chloe, Dan, Emily, Kelsey, Madalyn, all came from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the United States to participate in the AMAUTA Volunteer Program in Peru. This group of young college students spent two weeks with us here here in Cusco and made a big impact on our local after-school project that is located in the outskirts of the city in the mountains.

On the photos of this volunteer project in Cusco, you can see inside the local after-school project and what it looked like before the group of volunteers did their magic.

With Spanish teachers who have a strong passion for immersion and language learning you can depend on AMAUTA to help you become more confident in communicating in Spanish.

I personally attended the school located in the city of Cusco, surrounded by Andean mountains, at Calle Suecia. From school it was just a short walk to the ancient ruins of Sacsayhuaman as well as to the Plaza de Armas of Cusco.
