Which course is best for me?

Learn Spanish in Cusco

So I want to learn Spanish. Why should I come to Cusco and what kind of Spanish courses can Mundo Antiguo offer me?
Most students choose one of our standard Spanish courses. Our standard course is for everybody who wants to learn Spanish without any special requirements (like medical, business or Spanish for tourism). You can do our standard course with a private course or in a small group.

Private or group classes?
Private or group classes?

You can take private classes or in a small group with a maximum of only 4 students per group. In general a group course is very suitable for beginners. Everybody needs to learn the basics so especially for beginners, the advantage of private classes isn´t that big yet. If you already know some Spanish, private classes might be better for you. You can start exactly at the level you have. Your teachers will repeat all the themes in which you need a little more practice. And your teacher will advance rapidly to the next subjects.

In general, with private classes you will advance a little faster. An advantage of a little group is that you meet new people. But with private lessons you will also meet new people in our Spanish school during a break before or after class, or during one of the free fun activities we organize weekly. Did you book a group course with us, but can we not form a group on your level? We won’t try to force you in a group that is not exactly of your level, so we will arrange a program with private classes for you instead.

How many hours?

Private classes are 10 or 20 hours a week so 2 or 4 hours a day. Group classes are always 20 hours per week, 4 hours a day from Monday to Friday. You can take classes in the morning or in the afternoon so please tell us if you have a preference.

If you have the time, we always recommend to take a 20 hour course, so 4 hours of Spanish a day. It is pretty demanding, but you will make a lot progress. As it is very intensive, you will have the best results. Especially beginners and intermediate students need to study a lot of hours to advance quickly.

You can take a less intensive course to improve your Spanish, if you already have a high intermediate or advanced Spanish level. We have experienced that courses that offer more than 4 hours a day aren´t that effective anymore. Of course you can study for 6 hours for a day or two, but we don´t recommend those super intensive courses for courses of a week or more so that is why we don´t offer that type of course.

Placement test

We will test your level with our Spanish placement test. This placement test consists of 3 different components: an online (written) grammar test, a listening exam, and a personal interview. The last two are both on the first morning of your program with us in Cusco.

If you want to learn Spanish, Cusco is probably the best place in the world to do this. First of all, the people of Cusco speak relatively slow and easy to understand. Secondly, the Spanish in Peru is similar to the Spanish in the biggest part of South and Central America. This makes it the most used Spanish in the world. So it is a big advantage to study Spanish in Cusco.

Furthermore, Cusco is a very interesting city with lots of things to do and to see. And Cusco is the perfect starting place to explore the beautiful nature in the Andes, do adventure sports and make trips. In and outside the city of Cusco, you can discover everything that has to do with to old Inca Empire. As Cusco was the capital of the Inca Empire.

Nowadays Cusco is a place where you find the Peruvian people with their culture and traditions. But due to tourism, you can also find the services you are used to in the modern world. That is why Cusco is a popular city to study Spanish. You can find more information about Cusco here.
