Our Spanish Teachers

As well as imparting knowledge about the language itself, teachers are dedicated to educating their students about Peruvian customs and culture as well.
Accommodation Options in Cusco
There are two types of accommodation in Cusco to choose from:
- Host Family – if you choose this option then you will be living with a local family: all your cooking and cleaning will be done for you. This is a good option for those moving away from home for the first time, or those that like their own space. All host families have a large guest bedroom and a garden.
- Student Housing – if you choose this option, you will have a spacious bedroom to yourself. The kitchen, bathroom and lounge areas are shared though but this is a good chance to meet people. This accommodation is half-board meaning that breakfast plus one other main meal is included in the price. Student residences are located within the same complex as the school so there is no excuse for being late!
