Spanish course in Cusco, Peru
Cusco, Peru, is a wonderful location in which to study the Spanish language abroad. If you are looking for a total immersion Spanish language course in Peru, then Cusco is ideal. With its fascinating Inca heritage and magnificent colonial buildings, Cusco is full of the history and culture of Peru. Our ‘total immersion’ Spanish language courses at our school in Cusco are ideal if you want to learn Spanish quickly and effectively. All courses at our school in Peru have a maximum of 4 students, giving each student plenty of Spanish language practice and individual attention. The best way to learn Spanish is to study abroad and Cusco is one of those ‘unique’ language travel destinations, quite unlike anywhere else - From Cusco you can walk the Inca Trail, visit the nearby lost city of ‘Machu Picchu’, or travel to the shores of Lake Titicaca, with its floating reed houses, all arranged by our Cusco school.

Total immersion in Cusco!
If, like me, you’re the kind of person who wants to be fully immersed in the language as well as in the local culture, then Cusco is definitely right for you! Cusco is simply full of Spanish colonial heritage, as well as Inca history, and is located not far from the world famous ‘lost city’ of Machu Picchu! It all makes Cusco, in my opinion, the perfect place to learn Spanish and discover Latin America!
There’s just so much to do in Cusco! After classes there are all kinds of activities organized by the school - kayaking trips or riding in a hot air balloon, guided tours of Cusco and much more! And of course a trip to Peru wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Machu Picchu! Walking the Inca Trail alongside breathtaking mountain views and cloud forests is simply amazing, …and the view you get as you approach this incredible ‘lost city’ is unforgettable!
The courses were very well levelled to the ability of the students, I really learned a lot!!
The course was excellent. My teacher was excellent, she was well organised, explained things in a way that was easy to grasp and was very open, friendly and encouraging. I would highly recommend this school.
We had a small group size, with which the tutors tried hard and succeeded in leading interesting sessions.
