Spanish course in Cusco

If you are looking for a total immersion Spanish language course in Peru, then Cusco is ideal option. With its fascinating Inca heritage and magnificent colonial buildings, Cusco really is one of those ‘unique’ language travel destinations, quite unlike anywhere else.

Located at the foot of the Andes mountains, many people come to Cusco before walking the Inca Trail and visiting the nearby lost city of ‘Machu Picchu’, but Cusco is a fascinating city in its own right, with excellent examples of colonial architecture and is well worth taking time to explore!

Fast paced grammatical course, with extra conversation practice in the afternoon--the mix was perfect. Very friendly family, great room, food, everything. They made it easy and fun to be in a foreign country.

I really enjoyed the course and feel that I learnt a lot, particularly in the first week! I really hope to be able to use the spanish I have learnt in the future, it was very useful for the rest of my time in Peru. The accommodation was wonderful, kept very clean and was very comfortable.

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. The family that I stayed with were very welcoming, friendly, helpful and patient with me. When I had any difficulties they were always there to help. They made me feel at home by creating a relaxed atmosphere. I had a fantastic time in Peru. At the language school I met people from all over the world. I went on quite a few trips arranged by the school which were very well organised and very enjoyable.

Discovering Cusco!

Cusco1If you decide to go to Peru you cannot miss a trip to the ancient capital of the Inca Empire Cusco (3,400m above sea level!), also named Qosqo in Quechua which means “the belly button of the world”. Having my roots in this wonderful city I can't recommend Cusco enough as a place to learn Spanish. Not only the setting in the middle of the mystical Andes is incredible but also the local people are very friendly and open to visitors. Read more...
