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.

If you are seeking cultural enrichment, language acquisition and a place to have fun, look no further than AMAUTA Spanish School in Peru.
With Spanish teachers who have a strong passion for immersion and language learning you can depend on AMAUTA to help you become more confident in communicating in Spanish.

I personally attended the school located in the city of Cusco, surrounded by Andean mountains, at Calle Suecia. From school it was just a short walk to the ancient ruins of Sacsayhuaman as well as to the Plaza de Armas of Cusco.

Considering to take Spanish classes in Peru, but not sure where yet? This video might help you decide to pick Cusco! The AMAUTA Spanish School – located at a few minutes from the main square, the Plaze de Armas – is so much more than just a place to learn Spanish. We are a social hangout, a travelspot and a place to make life long friends. Our students team up, take salsa classes, party, go to Machu Picchu, or travel to our Sacred Valley school together to take Spanish lessons there. (more…)

After 6 weeks of Spanish classes in Cusco

After 6 weeks of Spanish classes in Cusco

Time flies when you are having fun! It’s true! Six weeks of Spanish classes in Peru have flown by.  At the end of July I arrived in Cusco for the first time. Impressed by the amazing views, the altitude, and the number of people I had to get used to this new city. Now, weeks later, it has become a genuine home to me. I got to know so many people; my classmates, my Spanish professors, the people working at AMAUTA Spanish School and even random people in the streets of Cusco. I got to know where to find cheap places to eat out, I learned which shops will try to rip me off and therefor to avoid. I experienced Cusco’s nightlife, the events happening at Plaza de Armas at an almost daily base, but most of all I learned the Spanish language!

Last week I took an exam. Above the exam was written nivel avanzado (advanced level). I was proud to read that I apparently have an advanced level of Spanish. For years I doubted to take Spanish classes. I once took an 8 class course at home. Not much came out of that. Now years later, I decided to really go for it. I started following at AMAUTA Spanish School. Four hours every day. Now, 120 hours of classes later, I learned all the grammatical rules. Of course my Spanish is not perfect yet. I need to work on my vocabulary and practice a lot more with all the Spanish grammar. But at least I know what the rules are.
