Ich hatte während meines Sprachaufenthalts nur gute Erfahrungen mit der Organisation von ESL und den Partnern in Peru gemacht. Ich bin sehr zufrieden. Mein Sprachaufenthalt und meine Freiwilligenarbeit in Cusco waren fantastisch. Auf jeden Fall! Die Lehrer leisten eine großartige Arbeit und das Klima in der Sprachschule war sehr angenehm. Gut organisierter und srtukturierter Unterricht Das Haus der Gastfamilie war sehr zentral gelegen. Ich konnte alle wichtigen Orte zu Fuß erreichen. Außerdem war die Gegend sehr sicher. Das Haus war sehr sauber und geordnet. Meine Gastfamilie war sehr offen und hilfsbereit. Ich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt.

Die Schule in Cusco ist super organisiert, der Unterricht macht Spaß und bringt einen weiter. Ich würde empfehlen, in der Schule zu wohnen, da man dann leichter Anschluss findet und immer was zu tun hat, aber auch von den Gastfamilien hab ich zum Großteil nur Gutes gehört und da lernt man evtl mehr Spanisch. Ansonsten ist das Volontariat eine gute Alternative, da man dort auch zum Spanischsprechen gezwungen wird. Die spannendste Arbeit ist das in den meisten Projekten zwar nicht, aber wer sich gern mit Kindern beschäftigt, ist gut aufgehoben. Cusco als Stadt ist natürlich sehr touristisch, aber dafür kann man auch sehr gut ausgehen und leicht weitere Ausflüge von dort planen. Außerdem sind die Mitarbeiter der Schule unglaublich hilfsbereit und lieb, die Atmosphäre ist super. Ich würde mich jederzeit wieder dazu entscheiden, 2 Monate Sprachkurs in Cusco zu machen, es war eine spannende, lustige und lehrreiche Zeit!
