Why learn Spanish in Peru
Imagine learning Spanish in one of the most beautiful and historic locations to be found anywhere in Latin America! You’ll be captivated immediately by the magic of Cusco: the ancient capital of the Inca Empire is set only a stone’s throw away from Machu Picchu World Heritage Site and at the very entrance to the Sacred Valley of the Inca. Your Spanish program in Cusco is much more than just a language course: it is guaranteed to be a deep plunge into history and into an ancient and mysterious culture.
Up to day Cusco magically attracts visitors, students and tourists from around the world. The city dazzles with an unrivalled array of Inca history as well as Spanish Colonial art and architecture. Its enchanting blend of cultures, picturesque cobblestone streets and houses built on Inca foundations – they can still be seen today! – make it an excellent destination to learn Spanish. Enjoy the international atmosphere, taste the delicious Peruvian cuisine, people-watch on the historic Plaza de Armas or shop for souvenirs on one of the many local markets.
There’s much more to Peru though than the enthralling Inca capital: get out there and explore the crystal clear blue waters of Lake Titicaca, overnight with a local Indigenous family on Amantaní Island or fly over the still inexplicable Nazca Desert Lines. There’s no better way to practice your new-acquired Spanish fluency than with the locals while hiking the wild canyons of Southern Peru or indulging in sun and surf at one of the many seaside resorts on the Pacific Coast.
Even once you continue your adventure across our continent you’ll be practising the Spanish language practically non-stop: the major part of the Latin American territory is Spanish-speaking! What’s more, Spanish is nowadays the third most spoken language worldwide and the second most spoken in the United States. For the year 2025 approximately 35% of the United States’ population is estimated to be Hispanic descendants. According to universities in Europe, Spanish is now the most chosen foreign language just after English.
