Best places for Dinner in Cusco

After four weeks of living in Cusco – I’m taking Spanish lessons in Peru here at the AMAUTA Spanish School –  it becomes hard to find some new nice places to go to for dinner. In contrast, when you are a new bee, it seems to be hard to make a choice between all the good and nice restaurants around. There are some really comfortable and good-quality restaurants in Cusco with affordable prices I can recommend.

Restaurant INDIGO

I think many travelers and Spanish students in Cusco agree that “Indigo” is always the right choice. Located close to AMAUTA and to the Plaza de Armas (more…)

Speed up your Spanish Conversations with locals in Peru

Speed up your Spanish Conversations with locals in Peru

Our Spanish teaches in Cusco made a list with words in Spanish with a double or even multiple meaning. Many people learning Spanish in Peru struggle with those words, especially in daily conversations. Multiple meaning words can be quite a challenge: there are spelled and pronounced exactly the same but………the meaning is totally different.

With our list of words in Spanish with a double meaning, you don’t have to worry anymore about your conversations with the local Peruvians, or with your host mum in Cusco! No more embarrassing (or funny) situations because you “missed’ a small detail…. Like for example not being sure if you were talking about animals or flames! 🙂 (more…)

Spanish Lessons in Peru with fun fieldtrips

One of the things I enjoyed most during my Spanish lessons in Cusco (Peru), are the field trips. Learning Spanish in Peru is a great way to improve your Spanish quickly: during the four hours per day in small groups with my teacher, I spoken more Spanish than I’d ever done during my Spanish course home.

But the best opportunities to practice Spanish, to learn about Peruvian culture and to explore Cusco, were the field trips organized by AMAUTA. During one of those trips we went to the Qolwanpata Inca Park in Cusco. Here you can read my report of my Spanish lessons in Peru with fun field trips. (more…)

Reflections on a Field Trip to the Almudena Cemetery with our Spanish Teacher

A trip to a cemetery may not be everyone’s idea of an uplifting experience. I love cemeteries of all kinds, so when my the teacher of my Spanish Course in Cusco tells us that for our field trip today, we will be walking to the cemetery, I am curious, and, a little excited. I am imagining grey slabs of stones etched with dates and epitaphs, in rows, some new, some covered with moss. This would, itself, be interesting enough.

When we arrive, however, I can see why the Almudena Cemetery—Cementario General de Almudena—has been described as “the happiest place in Cusco.” (more…)

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 Spanish 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. (more…)

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 (more…)
