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!

      The school was absolutely amazing, the people were incredibly nice and would do anything posible to help you. The family i stayed with was also incredible. They were very good at helping you out with spanish, and were just very accomodating.

      School Staff

      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.

      School Staff

      The course was great and the teachers too. My place to live was amazing because I had my own apprtment in the house of my host family who were really great.

      School Staff

      The teachers were lovely, the other students really friendly, and the course really helpful. Only did 2 weeks of complete beginner stuff but it was enough to get by! Nice, clean, comfortable accommodation.

      School Staff

      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.

      School Staff

      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.

      School Staff

      The courses were very well levelled to the ability of the students, I really learned a lot!! My host family was amazing...we danced frequently after almuerzo and cena...great times!!

      School Staff

      We had a small group size, with which the tutors tried hard and succeeded in leading interesting sessions.
