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.

6 Festivals that will put Peru on your map
6 festivals that will put Peru on your map

If there’s one thing Peruvians know how to do, it’s party.

With an epic 3000 festivals held every year, the Peruvian calendar is packed with celebrations – an explosion of colourful parades, music, dancing in costume and eating and drinking.

Expect to see anything from locals dressed up as Spanish colonists wearing hideous blue-eyed masks with long hairy beards, to religious icons being paraded through crowded plazas as once were the mummies of Inca rulers.

Peru’s biggest festival is Inti Raymi just gone by on June 24, a celebration of the Inca Sun God and winter solstice.

But if you’re thinking about studying Spanish in Peru and want to coincide your visit with a festival, there are plenty to experience right throughout the year.
