Language course Spanish in Cusco

Amauta

The school is located in a beautiful, recently renovated colonial building on Calle San Agustin, next to the well-known hotels Marriot y Novotel. It is located only two blocks away from the famous Plaza de Armas of Cusco. The school occupies the first and second floor where there are a total of seven 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 our 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:

  • Five 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, in 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 year .

Learn Spanish in Cusco has it all: art, mystery, history and beauty united. Cusco is a special destination to learn a language: with beautiful streets and squares, Inca monuments and elegant colonial constructions. Cusco is very well connected and you can travel safely and easily to the most important places of the ancient Inca Empire: Puno and Lake Titicaca, the Peruvian Amazon, the beautiful colonial city of Arequipa and last but not least, the impressive Lost City of the Incas, the ruins of Machu Picchu.

Cusco is situated at 3.400 meters above sea level, and is surrounded by mountains and valleys. It has a population of 350,000 inhabitants and makes a perfect base to learn Spanish in Cusco and explore the grandeur of the Andes, famous Inca ruins and the magical Lost City of Machu Picchu.
The city was founded around 1100 AD. After the conquest, the Spanish built their colonial churches and houses on top of the Inca foundations and this fascinating mix of architectural styles can still be found in the city.

Cusco is a World Heritage City. It is fun to go exploring the narrow colonial streets; almost every street has remains of Inca walls, arches and doorways. Within a few blocks of the Plaza de Armas, the central square, Cusco remains very much a city of indigenous people and the markets are filled with the bright colours of mantas (blankets). When you learn Spanish in Cusco you will be confident to go out, explore and discover the magic of Cusco
