All students come to school Monday morning at 8:00 to take the Placement Test that consists of 30 multiple choice questions and a short oral test.
To ensure that everybody is studying at the right level, Our school teaches at 8 – 12 levels from complete beginners till very advanced speakers.
We work with our own Latin America-orientated text books which form the basis of the course, in combination with other materials (e.g. newspapers, songs, literature, cassettes, videos, grammar exercises etc.) making use of overhead projectors, videos, and other audio-visual materials. However, our materials have a support function only. Visits to typical locations (for example the market, a school or a hospital) may be arranged for during class and large part of the study material are practical activities and exercises through which the students will learn to understand and speak Spanish almost without noticing.
When finishing the course, students receive a certificate of participation. If you take the internal examination at the end of the course then the level reached will be shown in the form of a grade.
Classes take place from Monday to Friday, except for official holidays which are not recoverable (an alternative, cultural activity is offered instead). All classes are 105 minutes in duration and are programmed between the hours of 8:00 am and 8:30 pm.
The Spanish Program of our school has been approved by the Brookhaven College University. Students who want to obtain credits for their Spanish Course at our school should contact us first. For more information, refer to our section UNIVERSITY CREDITS.
All our teachers are native speakers and professionals who are committed to giving students the richest possible experience of Peruvian culture and customs. They have been chosen because of their high quality teaching skills, their enthusiasm and their knowledge of Cusco and Peru. Coming from different countries in Latin America, they all took our teachers' training and participate in continuing education during their employment.
