Group courses:All our group courses (at least 8 different sub-levels), start any Monday of the year. Classes take place either in the morning or in the afternoon.
All groups work with two different teachers who rotate, so the students get exposed to the different varieties of spoken Spanish.
There is a maximum of six students per group. From complete beginners to very advanced.
Individual course:Individual Spanish lessons are offered for the individual course. A program especially tailored for our students specific needs and interests. Students can give us their preferences for certain hours and teachers.
This course is especially recommended for people that have specific needs (e.g. more/less grammar, special learning needs, younger than 16 years, Survival Spanish: a fast survey of Spanish directed towards speaking Spanish while traveling in Latin America, etc.).
Our individual course by hours can start any day of the week; course packages of twenty hours start any Monday.
Best Of Both (combination group and individual)Our Best of Both Course: Best of Both allows you to take advantage of having fun, dynamic classes, and learning more from and about student's friends in a group class (four hours a day), in combination with the personal attention you can only get from a private teacher, during (one or two hours) the afternoons.
Quechua classes:Be part of this unique course in the original language of the Incas, ?Runasimi? or Quechua. With just a couple of hours, students will receive an insight of how rich traditional Peruvian cultures and languages are. People in Cusco, specifically at the countryside, will greatly appreciate: an ?Allillanchu? (Good morning, how are you); it will immediately open doors for you. Quechua is not an easy language and a intermediate level of Spanish is required. However, the course is completely communicative-oriented and in a short period of time students will be able to speak and understand slowly spoken sentences. This course can be booked by hours (10 minimum) and can start any day of the week.
