Peru: “Spanish Language Immersion in Peru”

Capitalizing on our successful partnership with Academia LatinoAmericana de Español, our Spanish program will travel to Cusco, Peru. This program focuses on the Spanish language through traditional classroom teaching, host family stays, and cultural immersion. You will participate in several cultural activities designed to broaden your understanding of Peruvian culture and South American history, including a day trip to Machu Picchu, cooking lessons, dancing lessons, and various service learning opportunities. Peru is an ideal destination for jump-starting or perfecting your Spanish language skills!
