Language course Spanish in Cusco

Amauta

The school is located in a beautiful, recently renovated colonial building, only two blocks away from the famous Plaza de Armas of Cusco. The school occupies the first and second floor where you can find big and brightly-lit classrooms. Many of them have the traditional blue balconies unique to Cusco that overlook San Augustin Street and the beautiful cupola of the Santo Domingo Church. In addition to the larger classrooms, there are also smaller spaces for individual and private classes. Some of the classrooms are located downstairs along the sunny courtyard where the administrative offices, the head of studies office, the volunteer coordinator's office and teachers room are also found. The immense staircase up to the second floor leads to the rest of the classrooms. The second floor also contains a large room with a beautiful high ceiling for meetings and student activities, as well as big common spaces with a cafe that overlooks the courtyard.

Key features of our Spanish partner school in Cusco:

  • well equipped classrooms
  • Four open spaces for classes
  • A school administration
  • A common room for students to relax
  • A small kitchen
  • A beautiful garden with seating area
  • A separate office for our travel agency Dos Manos (excursions)
  • minimum age: 16 years

Social Programme:

Amauta has its own travel agency named “Dos Manos”, which is also located in the school building. Every week Dos Manos organizes weekend trips for the students of the language school. Some examples of the trips are rafting, horse riding or visiting typical villages and ruins in the area. The excursions can take place in Cuzco itself, in Puno, Lima or in La Paz.

Minigroup

Classes take place in small groups of maximum 6 students per group, this way each student will get sufficient individual attention. The program consists of 20 lessons per week and the groups will be based on the language levels of the students. A written and oral placement test at the beginning of the programme will determine the level of each student.

Minimum age is 16 years .

I met so many wonderful people at the school and my Spanish improved significantly! It's located very centrally in Cusco and everything is at a walking distance. The professors are lovely, and there are a lot of activities to do! I did the program in the sacred valley, and it was AMAZING! 10/10 would recommend!
