About Language immersion courses in Peru

Language Schools and Language Courses in Peru
 
Studying Spanish in a Peruvian language school is a far cry from some of the traditional language acquisition programs you may have tried at home.  The number one reason for this is the instructors employed at these schools are Peruvian, which means aside from being certified and highly-qualified language instructors and language specialists, they are also native speakers who can help you grasp the intricacies of the language.  Class sizes are kept intentionally small, often only 5-10 students, leaving sufficient time for the instructor to focus on each student individually during the course of the program. 
 
Peruvian language schools offer individual and group classes, with numerous opportunities for students to practice what they’ve learned with fellow classmates.  All classes are conducted as “full immersion courses,” a language-learning technique in which all of the instruction is in Spanish, and Spanish is spoken solely during the course of the program, whether you are in the classroom or not.  Classes are complemented by a range of social and cultural activities organized by the school, and when classes and/or events are not being conducted you’ll be free to explore the country and its various cities, visiting sights and attractions, eating at authentic Peruvian restaurants and shopping.
 
Language-Learning in Peru:  Things to Do and See
 
  • Machu Picchu.  No trip to Peru would be complete without a visit to renowned Machu Picchu.  Considered the Holy Grail for lovers of Inca monuments, the enigmatic lost city of Machu Picchu is the most famous archaeological site in all of South America. Machu Picchu features a spectacular collection of temples, terraced hills and plazas, and was known as the mountain-top citadel of the Inca under the leadership of Pachacutec and Tupac Yupanqui, prior to the arrival of Pizarro and the Europeans.
  • Museo Larco Herrera.  To help you better understand the ancient history and culture of Peru, there is no better place to visit than the Museo Larco Herrera.  Here you will find a chronological overview of 3,000 years of history, one that takes you through pre-Inca cultures and pre-Colombian art, to present-day interpretations of pre-Hispanic ceramics.
  • Lima Plaza de Armas (Plaza Mayor).  Lima Plaza de Armas or Main Square is the heart and birthplace of Lima, the Peruvian capital.  The plaza is beautifully landscaped with palm trees, elaborate lampposts, flower beds, and greenery, and its main focal points are the 1,650-tiered bronze fountain in the center and the statue of Francisco Pizarro on horseback nearby.  If possible, try to visit at precisely 11:45am to watch the changing of the guard, or visit any time to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the plaza.
 
Naturally, this is just a small sample of the wonderful things to do and see in Peru, but if your goal is to combine a fun and effective language-learning experience with a world-class holiday, you’d be wise to place Peru near the top of your destination list.
