There is no doubt that Cusco is the most stunning location to learn Spanish in Peru. Our language school in Cusco is located only a few minutes’ walk from the historic Plaza de Armas, and it’s fair to stay that when you study with us, you are totally immersed in all Cusco as to offer.
Our Cusco Spanish school is located in a beautiful, recently renovated colonial building with classrooms, a common room, a kitchen and a nice courtyard with blue balconies, the latter of which are typical architecture for the city. The AMAUTA Student Residence and our travel agency Dos Manos Peru are also located here and can help you make the most your time studying in Peru.
Cusco is a unique place for studying Spanish and living alongside local people. The former capital of the Inca Empire is now a favorite travel destination for visitors to Peru. It’s unsurprisingly really, as Cusco has it all: breathtaking nature, dramatic scenery, ancient cultures, and plenty of social activities, granting endless options to spend your free time after Spanish classes.
At only a few steps from our Spanish School in Peru you can find a range of dining options in local restaurants, pubs and trendy cafes, as well as an array of excellent museums, remarkable Inca-built walls, and exquisite colonial churches.
During the weekends, there’s always time to visit ancient Inca villages in the nearby Sacred Valley, go trekking through Andean scenery, or just soak up the atmosphere in one of Cusco’s old and picturesque neighborhoods.
The standard Spanish course that offered by AMAUTA includes four hours of either private or group instruction per day. This can be either morning or afternoon classes, consisting of two Spanish classes taught by two different qualified teachers, which allows for a variety in teaching styles to ensure that you learn the way you find best.
All AMAUTA Spanish teachers dedicate most of their classes to practical activities and exercises through which you learn to understand and speak Spanish in a practical way. You also spend time on grammar exercises, writing and reading.
Alongside our 20-hour individual and Spanish group courses, you can also choose from a wide range of special classes, which allow you learn Spanish in Cusco alongside other activities or interest. These include medical Spanish, Spanish and volunteering, Spanish and Peruvian cooking, and Spanish and salsa, among plenty of other specialist Spanish courses in Cusco.
We have a number of accommodation options available for you during your time studying in Cusco.
Firstly, you can choose to stay with a local host family in Cusco to accelerate your Spanish language learning, as well as granting an unparalleled opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture in Peru.
Alternatively, you can opt to stay in our VERY POPULAR student accommodation, located within the Spanish school in Cusco, right in the city center of Cusco.
Finally, we can arrange comfortable hotel or hostel accommodation for you nearby, or you are welcome to make your own arrangements.
Staying with a host family is a great way to immerse yourself in Peruvian culture, as you have the opportunity to learn traditional customs and about family life. This option is also a guaranteed method of improving your Spanish more quickly, as you have extra chances for practicing!.
AMAUTA offers student accommodation within our school building in both private and shared rooms. This is very handy for being close to your Spanish classes and for meeting other students from around the world. We also have our own chef who prepares a delicious range of Andean and foreign cuisine. Breakfast and a delicious and home-cooked three course lunch are included in this option.
For those students who are volunteering or studying for a period of longer than ten weeks, we have student flats near to the school that offer a more comfortable living arrangement for extended stays. By living in one of our flats, you also are able to get to know others who are also studying for a longer period.
