After reading our blog, you’ll know exactly why you want to study Spanish at AMAUTA Spanish School in Peru! Hasta pronto!
Do you always envy people that seem to speak in other languages as if it were very easy?
In reality, learning a new language can be tough and at times even frustrating. Especially the start can be difficult. But let me tell you: it is worth all the trouble. Especially learning Spanish can be mind-opening! Learning Spanish brings many advantages to it!
And if you study a new language in the country where it is the native tongue, like in Peru, it can become a whole game-changer – and not only for your language abilities! Being bilingual opens doors and creates opportunities that do not exist for a monolingual. But if you can’t travel, Online Spanish Lessons are the second best alternative, especially if you go for real-live lessons with native speaking teachers.
One of the joys of traveling abroad is the opportunities it presents to interact with local people, from the women at the market stalls to the families you encounter in a rural community. But sticking around and opting to live in a community for an extended period can be even more rewarding: imagine being welcomed into a town and spending each day interacting with local people.
Volunteering in Peru allows just that. We’ve put together this guide to volunteering programs in Peru that sets out everything you need to know about finding and organizing projects where you lend a hand. (more…)
“Volunteering in Peru and learning Spanish at AMAUTA in Cusco was a great experience. There are lots of Spanish schools here in Cusco, that’s true. But no Spanish school in Cusco is like AMAUTA!
The whole AMAUTA Team, including the teachers, the administrative staff, and the housekeeping, are extremely nice and help you with anything! After six weeks of living with a host family, I moved to the apartments of the school. The rooms in the student residence are very nice and clean. I felt safe and at home. The volunteering was amazing. I felt welcome, and that I could truly do something for the kids. It was very nice.“

# 1 Section Spanish Learning
Recently we had a great group of students from Canada come to Peru, to take Spanish classes and do volunteer work in Cusco. The students participated during their first week in our Spanish in the Sacred Valley Program, where the all lived together with our Spanish teachers in our beautiful campus school. The group volunteered for two weeks at an orphanage in the Sacred Valley. After that, they returned to Cusco for a week to volunteer at a local school in Cusco, where their help was needed.
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!
“Come to Peru with an adventurous spirit” is one of the many tips that our friendly and cheerful volunteer coordinator Sarah gives to the future Spanish students and volunteers that will soon be coming to Peru to participate in our volunteer program. Sarah has been working with AMAUTA since January this year and she is now an indispensable member of the AMAUTA Peru Team.
Very much, I’m very glad to be here! AMAUTA is a great place, I have great colleagues and together we provide a fun and friendly environment for foreigners that come to Cusco to learn Spanish and/or to do volunteer work in Peru.
