Cusco is situated at 3400 meter above sea level, surrounded by mountains and valleys. It has a population of 300,000 inhabitants - most of them indigenous - and has much beauty to offer: the panorama of the Andes, famous Inca ruins and the magical town of Machu Picchu.
The standard program include four hours of either private or group instruction per day. The teachers co-ordinate the program to ensure that the grammar themes are further developed in the conversation classes. The conversation teachers are rotated weekly in order to give students the maximum exposure of varieties of spoken Spanish.
Note: You can choose between two different options of accommodation within the city of Cusco: local guest families (two categories), and our Student House, which is located in the same building as the school.
