Amauta Spanish School


studied General Spanish

Unforgettable Experience!

I spent 4 weeks at AMAUTA Spanish School and it was a great experience! The teachers were really kind and professional. They did not just help me to improve my Spanish, I also learned a lot about Peruvian culture because once a week we made excursions to museums and other interesting places of Cusco. Apart from that, I enjoyed the student life at school. The school organized daily activities for us, for example movie nights, dancing classes etc. While staying at school, I made friends with people from all over the world, an experience that I will never forget!

4-Week advanced course in Cusco, Peru

I had a great time in Cusco and especially at the Amauta language school. I took a 4-week course in the advanced level. The teachers were extremely helpful and helped me with my own problems in the language. The courses were fun, diverse and very effective! The accommodation and food was great as well! I got supported during my stay all the time and the staff in the offices was really helpful with my course plan. Also the excursions I made were perfectly organized! Thank you Amauta for the great time.
