To relax after classes, socialise with your new international friends in the café with free coffee and tea or in the large common room.

J'ai beaucoup appris en étant immergé dans la culture Péruvienne. L'école parfaitement située dans le centre historique nous a permis de faire des sorties pendant les cours et de mettre en pratique ce que nous avons appris. Le programme de l'école m'avait d'abord paru un peu répétitif, mais il s'est révélé être très efficace et au point. Sans compter sur la gentillesse infinie de tous les professeurs de l'école, toujours prêts à nous aider et à nous transmettre leur culture et leur langue. Cette sublime petite école très chaleureuse avait quelque chose de magique, hors du temps, proche de tout. Je reprocherais seulement à certaines salles de classe d'avoir parfois les murs un peu trop fins, gênant la concentration lorsqu'il y a du bruit et du passage. Les petits groupes (6 personnes maximum) sont réellement la clé pour bien apprendre et pratiquer beaucoup la langue. De plus, cela permet une vraie relation avec le professeur, qui se soucie sincèrement de l'apprentissage et de la progression des élèves. Une famille adorable et vraiment impliquée dans mon séjour, qui a bien pris soin de moi du premier au dernier jour, en s'assurant que je comprenne bien tout (fonctionnement du bus, heure et contenu des repas, différents lieux à visiter etc). Toujours prêt à me donner des conseils sur mes excursions pour que je profite au mieux de mon séjour. Les cours de bachata sont un souvenir inoubliable! ESL, je ne saurais jamais comment vous remercier. Grace à vous, j'ai vécu un séjour incroyable dans un pays que je voulais visiter depuis mon plus jeune âge — j'en ai pris plein les yeux! — et j'ai rencontré d'autres étudiants extraordinaires, vraiment extraordinaires. De vrais amis. Et je suis tellement fière de mon niveau d'espagnol, tant amélioré en si peu de temps! Cette expérience a été incroyable, et elle a changé ma vie. Merci, infiniment.

Cusco est un peu décevante en soit, surtout si l'on a trop en tête la capitale des incas, car très très touristique. Mais il est tout de même agréable d'y vivre, et c'est également un bon tremplin vers d'autres destinations. Les salles de cours, on ne peut pas dire que c'est le grand luxe, mais le bâtiment de l'école reste accueillant et confortable. L'école est très agréable, les professeurs intéressants, amusants, sympas et compétents, et les progrès rapides.

Our partner school insists on allowing you to discover the city of Cusco, bathed in history, and its magnificent region which is considered as the cradle of the Inca civilization. The city which never sleeps lives in an eternal festive atmosphere. Cusco will charm you with its intense nightlife, where everyone will find an event to their taste, whatever their age. This city is an open book: each building, each street, each district, each dance, each party, each stone is charged with a fascinating history. You will be able to enjoy the warmth and kindness of its inhabitants, inheritors of an age-old culture, during the most spectacular religious festivals on the continent, like Inti Raym, the sun festival. The school invites you to discover the magic of Cusco and go on excursions to the majestic site of Macchu Picchu, the spectacular fortress of Sacsayhuamán and the fertile Sacred Valley of the Incas in the company of the other international students. It will also introduce you to the preparation of typical dishes, the music and dances of Peru.
