EXCURSIONS AND LEISURE ACTIVITIES - INTRODUCTION
Our Spanish Programs include a dynamic, interesting and fun leisure program that is complementary to the process of learning the Spanish language. All activities are directed towards socialising in a learning environment and increasing the student's knowledge of Peruvian Culture.
Our spanish school offers the following Cultural Workshops with local teachers, that can be booked (for an additional payment) in blocks of separate hours, either during the week or in the weekend. If several students are interested in the same course, there are good discount options. A great opportunity to learn about real Peruvian traditional culture and a good complement to your Spanish Course.
In this workshop we include different options: guitar, charango (Peruvian guitar), zampoña (panflute) and/or quena (flute).
There is no need to have experience playing an instrument nor to be able to read music. You'll quickly learn to play a few well-know songs.
This is a "must" for people who are interested in Peruvian folklore!
For people who want to learn more about traditional Peruvian cuisine!
One free cooking class is included in the Student Activities,
but there's so much more! Learn about the endless different kinds of "papas" (potatoes),
