In 4 weeks time you will get 120 hours of individual classes. You will get 6 hours of classes from Monday to Friday. The classes will be individual, for the maximum result. During your classes you will not only stay in your classroom. You will visit a local market, a museum, a social project and interesting parts of the city, but all depending on your personal interests.
The school of Proyecto Peru has a small and familiar atmosphere in which you will feel at home immediately. At the Spanish school we have weekly activities, like welcome dinner, movie night, salsa class and cooking class.
When you arrive in Cusco, we will pick you up at the airport and bring you to your guest family. A homestay with a local family gives you the opportunity to experience the Peruvian culture and the hospitality of the local people. You can practice your Spanish with the family and you will enjoy the variety of the Peruvian kitchen through the daily breakfast, lunch and dinner.
In the weekends you will have excursions. With your fellow students, you will visit the most interesting places in Peru. You will have tours to the Sacred Valley of the Incas, to Lake Titicaca, to Machu Picchu and a rafting trip. The Sacred Valley of the Incas is the name of the fertile valley close to Cusco in which the old Inca culture and empire has developed. You will visit the archeological sites of Ollantaytambo and Pisac and also the popular market of Pisac.
And who has not heard of Lake Titicaca. Lake Titicaca is the largest lake of South America and the highest navigable lake in the world. A unique location and a popular trip. You will go by boat to visit the famous floating islands of Uros, made of reeds, where you will see their unique way of living. You spend the night on the island of Amantani with a local family. And of course you can’t go to Peru without visiting Machu Picchu. This amazing ruins in its absolutely fabulous location are a solely reason to visit Peru. One of the 7 world wonders!
