Living at the AMAUTA Student Residence in Cusco

Leven in AMAUTA Studentenhuis in Cusco

Leven in AMAUTA Studentenhuis of studenten residentie is een super ervaring. Het studentenhuis ligt midden in het centrum van Cusco, op steenworp afstand van de Plaza de Armas. Dit is een prachtige plek om te leven en de stad te verkennen.

Het studentenhuis bevindt zich bovendien in hetzelfde gebouw als de school waar je cursus Spaans gegeven wordt. Zou je nóg dichterbij de locatie van je Spaanse lessen in Cusco kunnen zijn? De reistijd die je uitspaart kun je dus lekker besteden aan wat langer uitslapen, relaxen, en Cusco verkennen!

In de residentie vind je één, twee en driepersoonskamers; de meesten hebben gedeelde badkamers. Er is een balkon, een gemeenschappelijke ruimte, een zonnige binnenplaats en gratis WIFI. (more…)

Review AMAUTA Spanish School Cusco

Reviews AMAUTA Spanish School Cusco

Hola! Yo soy Sarah de los Estados Unidos.

I studied Spanish for six weeks at AMAUTA Spanish School in Cusco, and during my time here, my Spanish improved a lot. When I arrived in Peru, I tested into an intermediate level, but I don´t really know how much Spanish I truly knew. Now I am finishing with an advanced level.  I feel that I learned so much from my teachers at AMAUTA—so many new Spanish words, Spanish phrases and and new tenses!

Out of the classroom

I loved how much variety I experienced in my Spanish classes. Every week I had two different teachers, and so I got to experience a bunch of different teaching styles. (more…)

Travel Kit of Paklijst voor studenten Spaans in Peru

Ben je van plan om naar Cusco te komen om Spaans te leren in Peru? Geweldig! Wij kijken er naar uit om je te zien! Als je jezelf nu aan het voorbereiden bent voor je trip naar Peru en je bent aan het nadenken over of je een bepaald item wel of niet mee moet nemen, dan is deze onze paklist heel handig! Hier vind je alle essentiële items voor een AMAUTA student en voor Cusco!

  1. Neem een handig Spaans woordenboek mee! In de digitale wereld waar we nu in leven zal je er misschien niet zo snel aan denken, aangezien er vele apps zijn die een woord waarvan je de betekenis niet weet zo voor je kunnen vertalen.. maar wat als je geen internet hebt in een ander land? Dan is het beter om een woordenboekje achter de hand te hebben!
     
  2. Er zijn twee dingen die handig zijn om te weten betrekking tot je accommodatie in Cusco in het AMAUTA studentenhuis én voor het wonen bij een gastgezin: Neem handdoeken mee! Je hebt geen lakens voor over je bed nodig in het studentenhuis of bij een gastgezin, maar handdoeken zitten er niet bij inbegrepen! Mocht je toch geen handdoek bij je hebben, kun je er overigens altijd een lenen en er later een kopen op de markt in Cusco.
