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.

What Volunteering Means to local Communities in Peru

Volunteering is an incredible way to connect with the heart of local communities, while giving support to very vital aspects of everyday life, like social work, education, healthcare, animal conservation, and stimulating local economic growth. It is important to recognize the important aspects of this work. Without volunteers, some of these projects wouldn´t be able to exist. As a volunteer in Peru, you provide such a valuable service for those who cannot afford to pay others for their time.

At AMAUTA Spanish School in Cusco, another very important aspect of volunteering that you might not realize is the donation each project receives from AMAUTA for the time you spend at your project. This donation goes to critical things the organizations need, such as food, clothing, and other materials. (more…)
