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.

A visit to Moray and the Maras Salt Mines

-a student review-

When you follow a Spanish language course at AMAUTA Spanish School in Cusco, you have the opportunity to follow part of your Spanish lessons in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. This way you combine different locations and travel to different places in Peru where you can continue your Spanish course. You can even go to the Amazone and continue your Spanish course in the Rainforest.

That sounded very appealing to me so I signed up for one week of Spanish classes at the Sacred Valley campus. During this week we visited Moray (Inca ruins) and the Maras Salt Mines with AMAUTA staff as part of our program, that consists of Spanish classes, accommodation with all meals, activities and tours.
