What kind of experience are you most interested in? Start by exploring more about each country listed below or check out our different programs, volunteer opportunities or internships.

Picking the ideal location can be a daunting task, therefore, our goal is to provide you with programs and pieces of information meant to help you pick the destination that best suits your tastes and needs. We offer attractive locations throughout Peru and Ecuador for unforgettable and authentic experiences, and we have four language schools where you can attend group or individual Spanish classes.

Two of our schools are located in Peru, in the bustling city of Chiclayo and the charming town of Cusco. Chiclayo is known as “la Ciudad de la Amistad” (The City of Friendship) and boasts lively streets, lined with markets, shops and restaurants as well as great nightlife. You can also encounter amazing archeological treasures all around the area and even surf on Pimentel’s tourist-free beach. Cusco used to be the capital of the Inca Empire before the Spanish invasion and is now a UNESCO World Heritage site sitting at an elevation of 11,152 ft and surrounded by numerous exceptional ruins.

You can find our other two schools in Ecuador’s exciting cities of Quito and Otavalo. Quito, the capital of the country, was declared by UNESCO as the ‘Best Preserved City Center’ and possesses majestic colonial streets and architecture. It is surrounded by jaw-dropping volcanic peaks that you can visit with one of the city’s gondola lifts and enjoy the stunning view. Otavalo is a more artisanal town with its indigenous markets and traditional charm. If you like handmade clothes and innovative handicrafts, then you will love this city.

If you think that one city is just not enough, then you can opt for our travelling classrooms, where you can combine learning Spanish with travelling! One of our teachers will accompany you and give you classes while you visit various locations and practice your Spanish at the same time. We offer different routes in Peru where you can discover the magnificent scenery of the coast, the Andes and the Amazon Rainforest or choose Ecuador instead and explore the natural beauty and exotic wildlife of the Galapagos Islands!

Another highly recommended way to experience what South America has to offer, is taking up the challenge of a volunteer or internship program. You can gain real, hands-on experience abroad in the area of your choice while supporting local communities and giving back to them. Between our four language schools in Peru and Ecuador, we offer more than 100 different programs!
