Wiracocha Spanish School
Intensive spanish is our most popular course taken because it combines grammar and conversation at an intensive rhythm but at the same time it is not as demanding as "The Immersion Course", because this course is only for four hours a day.
Listening, Speaking, Pronunciation, Reading, Writing, Vocabulary, Grammar and Activities
Class schedule may change depending on availability and season.

Wiracocha is a Spanish school with a friendly atmosphere and excellent teachers, we have 12 years of experience teaching Spanish to international students.
Wiracocha is more than a Spanish school, is a place to meet new friends from Peru and from all over the world, organize excursions, parties, trips, etc.
We are always asking our students if everything is well if something is not good, we change it immediately, that is the reason that Wiracocha has students that return to our school after some years to repeat the experience.
The nationality and age mix at Wiracocha Spanish School varies over different time periods, courses and levels. Throughout the year, the average age is 26. In the summer, the average age is 24.
Wiracocha teaches students from all over the world, including:
Our school is located in the city center at the best location, at San Blas neighborhood, at only 5 minutes walking to Plaza de Armas, near good restaurants, bars, banks. It is a very safe area.
Our school has a nice colonial building.
Really friendly and good teachers! I do wish that the school would provide some kind of test or oral exam to determine what the individual student need to develop their Spanish.Show details » Read more...
I LOVED going to classes Wiracocha. Indira and Erickson were incredibly helpful, flexible and made my experience once in a life time. The teachers were attentive, responsive, and truly cared about learning. I highly recommend this program coupled with the homestay!Show details » Read more...
The classes were great and I was very excited about the way of teaching. It was always a friendly contact. Also the location of the school is optimal, as well as the location of my host family. On the whole I would return to Cusco, because of the people and the unforgettable, unique landscape. I enjoyed it!Show details » Read more...
The classes were good and my teacher was excellent. The location was nice but really cold in the morning, luckily they had blankets and tea. My host family was very friendly and welcoming, they made me feel comfortable and at home.Show details » Read more...
I studied in Wiracocha Spanish School for two months having classes every day for two hours. It was excellent in terms of flexibility of schedule, provided free Salsa and cooking classes, the teachers were very friendly, approachable and are highly skilled professionals. Moreover the conditions are amazing, you can choose having classes either inside or outside in the sunny patio. The atmosphere was great, and school organized weekly evening meetings in different local cuisine restaurants and, from time to time, excursions to admire Inca's tracks hidden from tourists. I highly recommend that school. I wish to go back there one day.Show details » Read more...
Thank you very much for your comment, we work to be the best Spanish school in Cusco
When I arrived at Wiracocha Spanish School in Cusco I could not speak any Spanish. I learned a lot in those four weeks of classes. The teachers were helpful, very patient and were really heartwarming people. For every level there was a special group, I was lucky that my classes were private. My compliments to Magaly, the mother at my host family, she was a great cook and at the end I could have total conversation in Spanish which was one of my main goals. I definitely want to return someday.Show details » Read more...

Thank you very much, we are happy that you have learned a lot and you had a good experience with us
I had only 4 days of classes, because 1 day was holiday due to Inti Raymi. I liked the teachers a lot. Thank you for the good lessons! The rooms were cold and very small though, but there is not much you could change, I suppose :(. My apartment was really good, though it was just cold, and I had problems with the key when opening the door. I was also bit scared when it was dark in the patio and the dog was free and barking.Show details » Read more...
Thank you for your opinion, this allows us to improve and make changes to improve the experience of our students.
My experience during my two-week stay at Wiracocha Spanish School was in every respect excellent. The classes were small, and the teachers were very attentive and helpful. The atmosphere there is what makes learning Spanish so easy and successful. Aside from the classes, there are many social activities at school or even at night!Show details » Read more...
Thank you very much, most important for us is that our students feel satisfied with teaching and school experience.
The school was great while I was in Peru, the classes were really good and all the teachers were really nice. The teachers were easy to work with and they always made classes fun. The school had Salsa lessons every Thursday for free and cooking classes sometimes on friday. The location of the school was nice; it was close to the host families and it was close to the Plaza de Armas, which was nice. I stayed with 2 host families. The first one was nice, although I had some problems with them and so I requested to move houses. The school was really amazing with dealing with my situation and they moved me into a new house with a really nice family. The second family lived on Tullumayo and they were absolutely amazing! The rooms were really nice as well, and the mom cooked amazing food all the time!Show details » Read more...

It is great because the teachers are very friendly and you practice a lot as you have the chance to speak very often.

Thank you very much for commenting on us, we are sure that step an incredible time at our school and especially and met a lot about Cusco, Peru, culture and customs while learning Spanish.
Thanks for visiting and for choosing us.
First of all, I can say that I made a good decision to go and study at Wiracocha again this year. The course that I took turned out to be very flexible. I had studied Spanish at Wiracocha before. So this was my second time. This year I had a specific purpose, which was that I wanted to acquire some skills and knowledge of medical translation. The director kindly arranged my class to meet my need. I really appreciate Elias's efforts and resources, from whom I was able to learn many important principles of medical translation. He was so good!!Show details » Read more...
