Our classes are a great way to learn Spanish and immerse yourself in the local culture, lifestyle and cuisine of Peru. Learning a language has never been so fun! This program gives you the chance to bond and participate with your fellow classmates in a positive learning environment designed to give you individual help from our teachers. These classes will improve your Spanish allowing you to easily spend your time in local Peru. — PROGRAM DESCRIPTION : Our school in Peru is one of the very few officially registered and recognized language faculties in the country that offers hour-long rather than the typical 45 minute lessons. Our aim is to ensure that you learn Spanish quickly and effectively while experiencing the Peruvian culture, cuisine and lifestyle. In our 20 hour per week Spanish course, you will be learning in a group made up of no more than six students. This ensures that you get plenty of time and attention from your teacher, while giving you a fun and interactive way to learn Spanish and bond with your fellow classmates. If this is your first time attending our classes, you will be required to take a placement exam in the morning to ensure you are placed in the class that suits your level the most. The length of the time needed to complete the test will depend entirely on your Spanish skills – the longer, the better. After one of our teachers has graded your test, you will be introduced to your class! — AIMS &OBJECTIVES : Ensure that you learn Spanish as fast as possible while experiencing the Peruvian culture, cuisine and lifestyle! Schedule : Monday to Friday : You will have four hours of class a day. Together, they will sum up to about 20 hours per week.
