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.

Sin embargo, hay mucho que hacer en la noche de Halloween. Por suerte, los clubes y bares organizan eventos de Halloween para que todos nosotros los que estamos aprendiendo español en Buenos Aires, podamos usar nuestro traje en nuestra fiesta favorita hasta el amanecer.

Cómo celebrar Halloween en Buenos Aires

As in other countries, Halloween is celebrated in Buenos Aires on the 31st of October. Originally, it was celebrated only in Great-Britain, but after large groups of Irish and Scottish immigrants moved to the United States, it also became popular in America.

In Buenos Aires, Halloween (or Noche de Brujas in Spanish) is not particularly big. You won’t find kids trick-or-treating in Buenos Aires and you won’t see big cobwebs in all the stores. Though, there is a lot to do on Halloween night. Luckily, clubs and bars organise Halloween events so all of us that are learning Spanish in Buenos Aires, can wear our favourite costume and party till dawn. (more…)
