Past Review Awesome!
lots of things, well worth it - Trinity University View Entire Review
Yes, it opened my eyes to a whole new culture and it helped me to understand what it is like for those who come to the U.S. to study or work and have to learn English. It can be very frustrating to not be able to convey simple ideas. - Trinity University View Entire Review

Whether a complete beginner or an advanced speaker, a recent student or returning to study, students can receive customized programs at the level and pace especially suited to each individual's personal goals.

:LODGING:
HOMESTAY
The host family option has been developed particularly for those who wish to make a cultural journey with the aim of not only learning the language but also studying about the art, architecture and landscape of Perú, through the experiences, life and customs of a Peruvian family. The host families are carefully chosen and monitored through regular evaluations and student feedback. All families are middle class families, the majority of which live within walking distance from the school. The student will always have his/her own private room and will share the living room, kitchen and bathroom with the family. Also, the host families provide 3 meals a day: breakfast, main dinner meal and supper. Special diets may be catered for, eg. vegetarian, diabetes, if advised in advance.

HOMESTAY PLUS
The Homestay Plus offers students a slightly higher comfort level, in terms of the house and room being of a larger size, the food being more adapted to the students' desires, and a courtyard or garden. Homestay Plus is especially suited for those who want to be away from the bustling city center.

STUDENT RESIDENCE
We offers accommodation for those who enjoy contact with other students from different parts of the world and who love to live within the city center of Cusco, at one block from the Main Square. Breakfast and lunch are included in this option.
One of the residence is located within the school building. There is a total of 14 rooms with shared toilets, a common kitchen/living room and a big, sunny terrace with a view over Cusco.

The other one is right in front of the schoolbuilding. Here you find a total of 8 rooms, most of them with private toilets, two common areas with a lovely view over the city of Cusco (a hall and a living room), a balcony and a small patio.

STUDENT FLAT
It is for those who plan a longer stay in Cusco and want to live independently, participate in daily life activities and events, such as preparing meals and go shopping at the colorful Peruvian markets etc.

All flats are located in residential neighborhoods in Cusco, between 20 – 30 minutes walking distance from the city center, and offer the students a maximum of security and comfort with a fully equipped kitchen, a furnished living room and bedrooms. In each flat live between 3-6 students maximum.

There is a cleaning services that takes care of the bedding and cleaning of the shared areas at the student flats once a week. Students should bring their own towels and others.

Note: flat option is only available for those who plan a minimum 10 stay often weeks in Cusco
