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.

Get Involved in Sports while Learning Spanish in Cusco!

After you’ve chosen Peru as the perfect destination for your Spanish Course in Cusco and you’ve registered for your classes at AMAUTA, you will start preparing your trip to Peru. Cusco is an amazing city and there is loads of info on the internet about what to do in Cusco.

If you are an active person who love sports, you might be interested in the sporting opportunities that Cusco offers. For all the athletes among us, we have prepared this list with a pretty big variety of sporting activities to get involved in while living in Cusco.

First, there is a large complex called “El Coliseo”. Here you can find many different sports to play. The Coliseo is located close to the center, just off the main avenue (Avenida de la Cultura) across from the University. If you are looking to play the most popular sports in Cusco, there is a field to play soccer and an indoor gym for volleyball. (more…)

Volunteering in Peru

Volunteering in Peru is an amazing experience. One of our many volunteers, Lynn, did her volunteering in Peru at one of our after school projects in Cusco. Lynn did a great job, and she even prepared a ´´Luxemburg Day´´ to teach the children about her home country. The kids loved it! We asked her a few questions about her time here in Cusco and about volunteering in Peru!

  • Where did you do your volunteering and what did you do there?

    I was in after school project within the city of Cusco, during the afternoons. The activities that I did varied; I played with the kids outside and inside, I taught them English, I helped out with Bible class, and sometimes we cooked together.
