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.

7 Reasons to Learn Spanish This Year

Do you Always envy people that seem to speak in other languages as if it were very easy?

In reality, learning a new language can be tough and at times even frustrating. Especially the start can be difficult. But let me tell you: it is worth all the trouble. Especially learning Spanish can be mind-opening! Learning a new language brings many advantages to it!

And if you study a new language in the country where it is the native tongue, like in Peru, it can become a whole game-changer – and not only for your language abilities! Being bilingual opens doors and creates opportunities that do not exist for a monolingual.

In this blog, we have listed 7 Reasons to Learn Spanish This Year.

Will they convince you to make learning Spanish a priority for this year?

What do our volunteers in Peru say about their experience?

“Volunteering in Peru and learning Spanish at AMAUTA in Cusco was a great experience. There are lots of Spanish schools here in Cusco, that’s true. But no Spanish school in Cusco is like AMAUTA!

The whole AMAUTA Team, including the teachers, the administrative staff, and the housekeeping, are extremely nice and help you with anything! After six weeks of living with a host family, I moved to the apartments of the school. The rooms in the student residence are very nice and clean. I felt safe and at home. The volunteering was amazing. I felt welcome, and that I could truly do something for the kids. It was very nice.“

This is what Hendrik Schmid from Germany says about this experience learning Spanish in Peru and volunteering in Cusco. Hendrik worked at an after-school program on the outskirts of Cusco. We caught up with him to ask about his experience volunteering here with the kids in a poorer district of Cusco. (more…)
