The style of our classes is very participative and interactive as we follow a communicative approach. Through games and fun activities you will be encouraged to start speaking from the first lesson. We will practice grammar, speaking, reading, writing, listening comprehension and vocabulary.
After a placement exam, students will be accomodated in one of the six levels that Amauta offers.
Classes start every Monday and you will be placed in the most appropiate group based on your level of Spanish. Booking classes is free and you will receive instant confirmation as well as instructions on when and how to complete the level placement exam.
Importante note: If the miminum of students per class in the group is not reached, lessons will be replaced with 15 hours of private one-on-on lesson with no extra cost.
Extra: For students seeking a more intensive Spanish course, we recommend one or two extra hours of one-on-one instruction per day where you will be able to focus on whatever you want to practice. For example, you may work even more on your conversational Spanish skills or on certain grammar topics, or practice Spanish for specific purposes, work on certain area that is more difficult for you, talk about culture, etc.

We arrange homestay with local families for all our students. Students have their own rooms, eat all their meals and participate in family life. This allows for Spanish practice outside the classroom and integration into community life. Families in both urban and rural areas are available.
You can choose whether you want to stay in a house or apartment; whether you want to stay with the family that has children; or even a vegetarian family. For those who prefer to live independently, we can arrange for a private room or apartment.
