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.

We asked Simone Kuffner, who’s been volunteering at a local project in Cusco for four months!
Simone is from Austria. She arrived in late September of 2015 and is leaving us in a few days. Simone has been both an excellent volunteer and dedicated Spanish student in Peru here at AMAUTA, and we are sad to see her go. She is practically a Peru professional now! (more…)
I have been living in Buenos Aires for several months now, learning Spanish in Argentina and doing my internship in Buenos Aires. And finally I had the chance, a couple of weeks ago, end of December, to do the weekend trip that was high on my bucket list: a visit to the waterfalls of Iguazu.
On day 1, I woke up early, packed my stuff and took a cab to Aeroparque Jorge Newbery, from where my plane would leave. Boarding started at 13.00 and within two hours we were in Iguazu. Upon arrival at the hostal I felt there was a good vibe going on. There was music playing and people were sitting next to the pool; I immediately decided to put on my swimsuit and go for a swim.
