About the school:

I was traveling in South America for ten months before I decided to settle in the beautiful Arequipa. During that time I took classes in many Spanish schools - some good and some bad. Some schools were disorganised and I would sit around waiting for 20 minutes before the lesson started, some teachers seemed bored and just gave me exercises to complete however some schools got it right. When I settled in Arequipa I decided I wanted to open a school which would teach Spanish to the very highest standard: high quality material, passionate teachers, interesting immersive lessons. Using my experience I've created a highly structured Spanish course which covers all standards from beginner to advanced. I don't accept second rate which means all my teachers are excellent at what they do, they will give you their complete attention and energy. As a traveler myself I also know how difficult it is to have a rich cultural experience while you're traveling. It takes time to get to know a city and sometimes if you're not local you miss out on "non-touristy" events. For this reason, we'll let you know about all the interesting events which are taking place in the city during your stay: bull fights, fiestas, fireworks... to make sure you don't miss out.

Local knowledge:

The majority of travelers just pass through Arequipa, visit Colca canyon and move on to Cusco. I think it's a shame because Arequipa has so much more to offer. During lessons at this school we will pass on our local knowledge to enrich your experience in Arequipa. A short 20 min bus ride from arequipa you can be walking alongside the river through lush green chaquras of Congata... A 40 minute bus ride away you can visit the thermal baths of Yura before treking the beautiful Capua canyon and waterfalls. A 6 Sole taxi ride from the centre you can eat the best trout Ceviche (a national dish of Peru) I've ever tasted.
