Learn Spanish at Our Language School in Peru
AMAUTA Spanish School in Cusco is a highly-rated Peruvian language school that offers a unique opportunity for learning Spanish in Peru while finding full immersion in Peruvian culture.
Our Peru Spanish language school is located in stunning Cusco, the former capital of the legendary Inca Empire and close to the world-famous lost city of the Incas, Machu Picchu. Learning Spanish in Peru offers the singular chance to surround yourself with some of Latin America’s most fascinating archaeological sites and ancient cultures.
Our Spanish immersion programs run in three locations in Peru, which you can mix and match: start with Spanish lessons in the city of Cusco, and continue at our Spanish school in the Sacred Valley of the Incas or in the Amazon rainforest of Tambopata. We also offer a Spanish language program in our school in Lima, the capital of Peru.
What’s more, with free cultural classes about fascinating elements of Peruvian culture including folkloric dance, salsa dancing, cooking and cinema along others, our Spanish language school is a place for learning about the wider culture of Peru, at the same times as gaining fluency in Spanish.
AMAUTA offers various accommodation options, including local, Peruvian homestays or at our popular student residence, within our centrally-located Spanish language school building in Cusco.
AMAUTA offers many different intensive and immersive Spanish courses for learning Spanish quickly. One of our most popular Spanish courses is our Spanish and Volunteer Program , where you get to combine Spanish language study with volunteering in Peru. Over the years, we have introduced many hundreds of Spanish students to local projects in need of helping hands. AMAUTA is proud of supporting these volunteering projects across Peru and of building a bridge between the local people and our visiting language students.

Learn Spanish in Cusco
Our main location for learning Spanish in Peru is in Cusco, the former heart of the Inca. Cusco, which, in the indigenous local language of Quechua means “belly button”, is quite literally at the centre of Peru and Peruvian life. This city has it all: striking architecture and Inca ruins, rich culture, a heavy dose of local spiritualism, lively nightlife and a wealth of adventure opportunities - including to Machu Picchu, of course. It’s also a hub for international travellers, teeming with trendy restaurants, popular bars and tiny shops for souvenir shopping. It is this unique mixture of ‘the old’ and ‘the modern’ that makes Cusco a great destination for learning Spanish in Peru.
Learn Spanish in Lima
The Peruvian Capital Lima is a city of many faces. Those looking to study at a Peru Spanish school within a modern setting of big city life will be happy here. Modern neighbourhoods such as Miraflores – where our school is located – and bohemian Barranco offer one side to the city; the old, UNESCO World Heritage city center offers another, including colonial architecture and fascinating museums. Beyond this, let’s not to forget the city’s richness of restaurants and bars where you can try Peruvian cuisine – considered one of the finest in the world.
Learn Spanish in Tambopata
The most ecologically striking of our Spanish schools in Peru is in Tambopata, deep in the Amazon Rainforest. Learning Spanish here is integrated with classes that include lessons on the biological and ecological aspects of the surrounding jungle, where monkeys leap through treetops and jaguars pad silently through the undergrowth. A Spanish immersion program in the jungle in Peru includes transport to our lodge, all accommodation, meals, daily activities and
excursions and, of course, your Spanish lessons.
Learn Spanish in the Sacred Valley
Learning Spanish in the Sacred Valley of Peru is a unique experience. Made up of a trail of small villages, many of which are protected by ancient Inca fortresses, the Sacred Valley has an almost unparalleled richness of history and culture. During a week-long course at our Spanish language school, you can visit the artisan's market and ruins in Pisac, the picturesque village of Chincheros, the old Inca town of Ollantaytambo complete with a hillside citadel, the salt mines of Maras and the scientific, circular terraces in Moray. Transportation from Cusco, accommodation, excursions and all meals are included if you learn Spanish here. Past students have spoken so highly of this study program that you really can’t miss out on such a singular opportunity for learning Spanish in Peru.
