I studied here for 4 weeks (with the homestay option) and it was an amazing experience! Due to the great teachers and nice families you pick up the language quite fast. This was the perfect beginning for my solo travels! The lessons can be quite full of new information when you start for the first time but because of the great teachers you're able to make it though. They makes the lessons serious but also funny and they really just become friends after a while. On top of this, the afterschool activities are great for making new friends and learning more about the city/country!

I’ve had such a great time at mundo antiguo! After i walked in just to ask about the courses i got a very warm welcome and was handed an exam to determine my level, and the day after i could immediately start with the lessons. The school really knows what to learn each student and teaches everything in a very fast, practical and fun way. The teachers are so nice and they make you feel like a part of the family as soon as you get in. I also love the fact that everyday there are activities to do with the other students to connect, and even learn some more spanish outside of school. In 2 weeks i have learned so much, and have gotten so much information! I still have my schoolbooks with me so i can practice al the grammar rules and cunjugations i’ve been teached. I would 10/10 recommend Mundo antiguo for students who want to quickly learn spanish in a fun way! Thanks to everyone❤️ nos vemos!

Such a great school. The teachers are well informed, patient and fun! I only did a week of lessons which is a good way to learn the necessities for travelling around Spanish speaking countries. There are fun after school activities as well. Would highly recommend

I enrolled for 3 weeks in Mundo Antiguo, supposed to be just 2 weeks but I extended for 1 more week as I am enjoying my stay, learning a lot in class, and meeting many new friends. You’ll not only learn the language, but also the culture and it has been a great experience for me, I’ll never forget my time here. Thank you so much!

We had an amazing time at Mundo Antiguo language school! We stayed for three weeks and have learned so much, in a very diverse teaching style accompanied by many fun social activities after class! The staff is wonderful, everything is very familiar and you‘re in good hands from the first second on. Also a great place to get to know other people, to learn about Cusco‘s culture and to get recommendations for/help with the organisation of travel trips. During the three weeks we stayed in a host family which was organized by the school as well and we couldn’t recommend it more! Great time!

The perfect way to learn Spanish! For all levels and age! I was there for only one week and I would have stayed if I’d had more time. My Spanish was none existent and I was able to have a conversation with the taxi driver on the way to the airport. English is not my first language either and I’m over 40. I still was very comfortable in the school. All the staff is just amazing. The teachers are fun and really good. I stayed at the student Appartment and the rooms were very big and everything is really clean. Highly recommend this school and I definitely will be back!

I stayed here for month switching between private and group classes, whilst staying at their apartment. During that time I was overwhelmed by how accommodating everyone was. All staff are vibrant and super friendly. The school is in a great location and an intimate size allowing you to get to know everyone involved. Classes are fun and engaging with a plethora of resources. There are plenty of activities throughout the week and support for just about anything you need. Attending here felt like a family or small community and I couldn’t recommend it enough!

Spent 1 week learning Spanish in private lessons at this school. The teachers are great and they organize fun activities almost every day of the week. It is situated very close to Cusco’s plaza da armas making it a great location for exploring before or after class! I did a homestay as well which was lovely, although a bit too far from the school. Would recommend any one coming to Cusco to spend at least a week learning Spanish here!

A fantastic week at Mundo Antiguo This was my first time at a Spanish School in Perú and was really blown away by the quality of teaching that I experienced here. I was able to arrange for a week of private lessons (20 hours) just a few days before. Upon arrival, I felt immediately at home with friendly people and the best 2 teachers that I could have. Many thanks to Roy and Jimmy for guiding me expertly through Future, Conditional, and Imperative during the week. The school's social media has lots of video, etc. Check it out and you will see the good vibes coming through. It was such a great experience and I sincerely hope that I can study again at Mundo Antiguo in the future! :)

Great teachers! What an amazing place! I worked with 3 teachers Cynthia, Miguel, and Sandra. All of them were outstanding! They were very professional, and yet when I felt I needed attention in other areas like pronunciation. They were willing to modify the coursework to accommodate my learning needs. As with all schools, the most important element is what the student brings to the table. But I found the staff and teachers trying to do everything they could to see the students succeed. Mucho Mucho Gracias !

Absolut weiterzuempfehlen! Zwei Wochen besuchte ich die Sprachschule MUNDO SPANISH SCHOOL in Antigua (Guatemala) und noch nie zuvor hat mir Sprache lernen so viel Spaß gemacht. Ich wurde so motiviert, dass ich selbst bei der anschließenden Freiwilligenarbeit nebenbei noch weitere Einzelstunden in Anspruch nahm. In einem schönen Innenhof fand der 1:1 Unterricht durch freundliche, kompetente LehrerInnen statt. Kaffee, Tee und Arbeitsmaterial wurde zur Verfügung gestellt und ich habe viel gelernt. Auch das Rahmenprogramm mit wechselnden, interessanten Ausflügen wurde von Fredy, dem Schulleiter, bestens organisiert und begleitet. Dabei konnten die TeilnehmerInnen viel über Geschichte, Kultur und Aktuelles erfahren. Ich bin sehr dankbar für diese Zeit und kann diese Schule absolut weiterempfehlen!

Amazing language school especially for beginners The atmosphere at the spanisch school is very familiar and welcoming. All teachers and staff are super nice and we made a lot of new friends among the students. A lot of events are organized by the school and they helped to organize trips on the weekend. Staying in a local host family was an amazing experience for getting to know more of the culture while practicing the language.
