Lesson structure

Morning lessons start at 9:00 and continue until 13:00, afternoon lessons start at 14:00 and continue until 18:00. Normally the lessons are divided into two parts. The first half will be devoted to grammar and exercises. A new concept will be explained and afterwards you will work through practice examples to help you understand the new idea as well as reinforcing previous concepts. Your teacher will be on hand to if you have any problems. After this there will be a short tea break to let your brain catch up. In the second half of the lesson will be conversation based. You will talk in Spanish with your teacher with an emphasis on the material that you've learned that day. This helps build fluency and increases your vocabulary.

About Me


My name is Milagros and I founded the Arequipa Spanish School. I've lived in Arequipa my whole life and I've been teaching Spanish as a foreign language for the last 5 years. I speak English too, so if you're not confident with your Spanish yet, don't worry! If you want any information about Spanish classes you can contact my by email or WhatsApp. I usually teach in the center of Arequipa near the Plaza de Armas but it's also sometimes possible for me to come and give the lessons at your hostel or hotel.
