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.

Getting to know and to live the Argentine culture might be one of the goals during your stay in Buenos Aires besides improving your Spanish language skills. There is one thing you need to know before immersing yourself in Argentine culture; Argentines use a lot of sign language while conversing. When studying Spanish in Argentina, you won’t just learn the Spanish spoken language, you will also learn to interpret the “sign language’. And if you end up staying in Argentina long enough, you might even start using it yourself. Knowing about sign language might help you make new friends or communicating with your host family.

Argentines use their hands continuously to express themselves. For every emotion there is a particular gesture. In this blog we will inform you about the most import signs.
