Survival Spanish

This course will teach you to express yourself in basic Spanish as quickly as possible. The grammar will be reduced to a minimum, although certain knowledge is essential. The idea is that you can survive on your own in a Spanish speaking environment within a short time. This is an ideal course for backpackers!

If you are planning to volunteer or travel for a short period of time, survival Spanish might be perfect for you, to provide you with the necessities of navigating around Cusco and all of Peru. These survival skills will prove to be very helpful in your volunteer placement as most projects are operated in Spanish, providing you with an excellent opportunity to practice Spanish. Please also note that our host families are a great resource for practicing Spanish during your stay in Peru.

Perfection

If a student has passed the superior level, we can help to perfect his/her Spanish. In this course we can prepare the students for the DELE exam, the only exam for Spanish language that is accepted by the Spanish government.
