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.
Volunteer in a Peruvian Hospital in Cusco.
Meet Patricia. She is 24 and a trained nurse from Switzerland. Currently she is living in Cusco (Peru) for a five-month volunteer program in Peru, in a local hospital.
Patricia finished her studies for professional operating technique in 2013 and in order to gain more work experience in nursing she decided to further her career and advance her practical skills abroad. That’s when she received information about the Spanish and volunteer programs from AMAUTA Peru and she decided to travel to Cusco.
Before starting her job in the hospital San Juan de Dios, she took a four-week Spanish course at Amauta Peru to prepare herself linguistically and culturally for working with Peruvian patients and doctors. (more…)
