Best Places to Study Spanish in Peru


Languages in Peru

Peru is a country full of remnants of ancient civilizations that still have a contemporary resonance. Not the least of those is the language status of Peru which is formally multi-lingual. The ubiquitous Spanish of South America is used interchangeably with the indigenous Quechua and Aymara - tongues that have their roots in those ancient civilizations. That happy plurality is perhaps a distant echo of the political tolerance of the Caral. It is also a useful reminder that history is not something that simply happened in the past - it is something that also flows through the living present, even if we don’t always appreciate it.

"I participated on a combo language course and volunteer program in Peru. Even with very limited Spanish, I was still able to get a lot out of it and I'm sure so did the children, I was able to improve my Spanish a lot with at home personal lessons from Leslie and speaking in Spanish everyday with Tino family. Its also great fun taking treks and tours around Huancayo on the weekends, and staying at Tino house meeting other volunteers. If you're looking to do some charity work id highly recommend Tinkuy Peru."  - Charles Oehlrich

"I have just finished a 2 month stay in Peru. I can honestly say it has been the most rewarding thing I have ever done. My host family were so warm and welcoming, I felt the second I walked in the door as if I was one of the family. The staff were so affectionate that you feel so comfortable around them. I was extremely nervous on my first day with very weak Spanish, but the smiles and welcome I received just melted the anxiety away. Within 2 months my Spanish has improved to no end, helped tremendously by my host family who at times were as eager to teach as they are to learn about me. On top of that Huancayo is a beautiful city with tones to see, as you will find out on your weekend excursions to jungles, glaciers and artisan towns. I can't recommend enough a stint with Tinkuy Peru, it has given me an insight into the Peru you won't see on the `gringo trail´."
