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 to do in Buenos Aires during the weekend?

When you are taking a Spanish course in Buenos Aires, you will be pretty busy during the week days. Of course you have to attend the Spanish classes – mostly during the mornings from 9.00 till 13.00. After class you have lunch, do some Spanish homework and afterwards most students attend one of the free afternoon activities AMAUTA Buenos Aires offers you. The activities are a great way to learn about Argentine culture and to get to know interesting neighborhoods and musea in Buenos Aires. But what to do in the weekend when there are no Spanish classes? Go explore the opportunities that this beautiful big city has to offer! The following activities are budget friendly and offer a glimpse into the tiempo libre of the locals. What to do in Buenos Aires during the weekend.

Where to go in Buenos Aires

Did you know that Buenos Aires is number 10th on the ranking of Cities that Never Sleep? And now that I am here to learn Spanish at AMAUTA Spanish School in Argentina, I know this is true.

I was surprised to find out that New York is actually on the 32th place on that same ranking, but I can totally see why Buenos Aires ranks so high!

Because if you want to go out and party, you can do this every day of the year, all night long, in a different bar or club. On specific days there are special activities in some bars that I strongly recommend. So here is our list of special recommendations, one for every day of the week.

Monday night:

On a Monday night there is only one ‘right thing’ to do: go to the Konex Cultural Center to see the drum group called ‘La Bomba de Tiempo’ plays here. La Bomba de Tiempo is a 17 piece improvisational drum group that uses a lot of different music types like Central American and African rhythms, samba and Argentine folk beats such as chacarera. The Konex Cultural center is an old cooking oil factory and on Monday there will be around 1500 people inside bringing an amazing atmosphere.
