Our language school occupies a beautiful 19th Century colonial house in one of the many small plazas in Cusco. The school boasts 17 classrooms on two floors with an indoor patio, video room, auditorium, entertainment room, wireless internet access and an interior plaza. All of your classes will be in a group of between 3 and 5 students and you will be placed according to your skills and prior experience. Your classes will consist of highly structured grammar lessons, interactive activities, conservation and written exercises. Specific homework assignments are given daily and every student is evaluated and tested on a weekly basis. Your first Monday will be your orientation day and every student will take an oral and written placement test. This has no other purpose than to place students in the right group at the right level. You will also evaluate every week just to check your progress. After the placement test, all new students will go on a city tour of Cusco to get to know the city and learn how to get around and use the public transport system. Regular classes will start on Tuesday of the first week.
