Spanish for Families in Peru

Did you know that research shows that children exposed to the Spanish language - or any other language - at an early age benefit greatly in their language and reading development? So don’t miss the opportunity to give your children an extra step ahead and consider a Spanish course in Peru for the whole family that includes travel, activities, tours and Spanish Immersion in this fascinating country.

AMAUTA Spanish programs for families include adaptable programs for adults and children of all ages. Our Spanish for Families program is designed so that everyone in the family has a fantastic time on holiday while learning Spanish, in custom-designed programs with more flexibility and more facilities.

Spanish Immersion for the whole family

At AMAUTA Spanish courses for children, your kids will study the Spanish language from various fun materials including videos, music and children’s Spanish books. This Spanish course is adapted to the age range of your children: Spanish courses for Kids (6 - 12 years) or Spanish courses for Teens (12 – 16 years). If you have children under 6, they can be cared for during the afternoons with a nanny while the rest of the family is studying Spanish. Finally, we offer Spanish & Activity Camps during the summer.

Spanish for families includes a range of excursions for the weekends, catering for the age and level of your children. You can go hiking, visit Inca ruins or museums such as the Museo del Chocolate, or go to a farm in the Sacred Valley, where children can touch llamas or milk a cow. They can also join creative workshops to learn to play traditional Peruvian instruments, make jewellery or ceramics, learn about weaving or Peruvian cooking. Depending on their age, you can also go rafting, horse riding, or cycling. The train tour to Machu Picchu will be the highlight of the Peru trip for everyone.

We are happy to arrange your lodging too for the participants of Spanish for Families. There are different options, from renting an apartment or hotel to living with a Peruvian host family.
