Spanish course in Cusco

To be able to volunteer in our projects, you will have to speak at least the basics of Spanish. Luckily, it is not a very complicated language, so you will advance quickly with our intensive language course.

The language courses are available at all levels. Classes are in small groups, with a maximum of 4 students, or private. The structure of the lessons is lively, and focused on making you speak. When you already know the basics of Spanish, you can extend your knowledge with advanced classes.

Peru is the perfect place to learn Spanish. The Peruvians talk not too fast and they have a clear accent. Next to the lessons in the classroom, the teacher will also bring you to the city center, the local markets, and museums in Cusco. During these outside classes, you will talk a lot, and get to hear different accents. Some nights per week, there is a cultural evening program. Salsa lessons, cooking classes and even a pan flute workshop, are all included in the language course.
