Learn Spanish in the cultural city of Cusco in Peru. Enjoy 20 hours of Spanish lessons per week, plus amazing extra cultural classes in everything from cookery to salsa, singing and Latin American film. Living with local Peruvian families in a cultural homestay experience, you’ll get to practice your Spanish skills in this stunning city location. You’re only a stone’s throw from the magical ruined city of Machu Picchu, one of the incredible wonders of the world. A gap trip to Spanish school in Peru is an unbeatable language immersion you’ll never forget!
The Learn Spanish in Peru programme begins on a Monday. You’ll be involved in Spanish language lessons from Monday-Friday, with a total of 20 hours of lessons per week. You will have around 4 hours of lessons per day. On official holidays an alternative activity will be offered instead. This could be anything from a walk around the town to a lecture on the history and culture of Peru.
Sunday: Arrive in Cusco from Lima
Time to settle in to your homestay, meet your host family and get the feel of Cusco before your Spanish lessons begin. At 4pm you will meet in the centre of the city for a guided orientation walk in Cusco.
Monday: Introduction to the Spanish school
On your first day you’ll meet at the Cusco Spanish School at 8am, where you will have a briefing and be asked to take a written aptitude test consisting of multiple choice questions, along with a short oral test. Don’t worry too much about the outcome, as this test is only to ensure you are placed in the correct ability level class for your skills! On the first Monday you will enjoy a group welcome dinner at 7.30pm.
After your first Monday, all other Mondays will be set aside for 4 hours of daily Spanish lessons in small groups of no more than six students.
Tuesday–Friday: Language Lessons & Cultural Classes
Continue with 4 hours a day of Spanish language lessons in either beginner, intermediate, advanced or superior classes. You will study Spanish grammar theory and practice, do exercises to extend your vocabulary and improve pronunciation, and work on developing your listening, writing and reading comprehension using newspapers, songs and local literature of Peru. Also on offer in the evenings are a range of cultural activities and classes, such as salsa, cookery and film classes!
Weekends: Free Time
Your weekends are yours to explore Cusco, try adventure activities or arrange independent visits to amazing sights in Peru such as Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca or the Amazon rainforest. The Spanish school will be happy to advise and help you arrange extra activities through their in-house travel agency.
