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.

40 Spanish phrases you should know

There are few things more frustrating than floundering with the local language while traveling.

Many of us are probably guilty of using hand signals and a Spanish word here or there, but it’s not exactly the best way to communicate if you want to get the most out of your stay in Latin America.

If you’re headed to Peru , knowing some Spanish will help you better understand the culture and make your trip much more fulfilling. (this being said: if you really want to get serious about your Spanish, there’s no better way to do it than by taking Spanish lessons in Peru.)

While you don’t need to know how to discuss the state of the global economy with the people in Peru, you should at least know the basics in Spanish like introductions, ordering meals and getting from A to B on a bus. Therefore, we made the following list for you with 40 Spanish Phrases you should know.

Volunteering in Peru

Volunteering in Peru is an amazing experience. One of our many volunteers, Lynn, did her volunteering in Peru at one of our after school projects in Cusco. Lynn did a great job, and she even prepared a ´´Luxemburg Day´´ to teach the children about her home country. The kids loved it! We asked her a few questions about her time here in Cusco and about volunteering in Peru!

  • Where did you do your volunteering and what did you do there?

    I was in after school project within the city of Cusco, during the afternoons. The activities that I did varied; I played with the kids outside and inside, I taught them English, I helped out with Bible class, and sometimes we cooked together.

What to do on a typical day at the AMAUTA Sacred Valley Campus?

What to do on a typical day at the AMAUTA Sacred Valley Campus?

Settled just off the road that wanders between Urubamba and Ollantaytambo, AMAUTA’s campus or Spanish School  in the Sacred Valley, allows students to spend a week away from the hustle and cool temperatures of Cusco. The climate in the Sacred Valley is generally quite temperate, there are several famous and gorgeous tourist sites quite close, and students get to spend a week getting to know the area, their professors and each other, and practicing Spanish in every-day activities.

A typical group from AMAUTA Spanish School includes students from the US, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, and Canada.. many times there are students as well from Turkey, from France, or Belgium, Japan or Brazil… (more…)

Barolo Palace is a national historic building in Buenos Aires; upon completion in 1923 it was highest building of South-America.

Hoe werkt het openbaar vervoer in Buenos Aires?

How to use public transportation in Buenos Aires.
When I arrived in Buenos Aires for my Spanish lessons in Argentina, I was impressed by the size of the city. I immediately understood that I urgently needed to understand how to move around quickly, in other words how to use the public transportation in Buenos Aires. The Argentine capital has so much to offer and there are so many different neighborhoods (barrios). In order to not lose time (nor money) you need to know how to transport yourself in the most convenient way.

Here you can find four modes of transportation in Buenos Aires and how to use them. (more…)
