ACIS - Cuzco Spanish Language Study - Educational tour to Peru

On top of private language classes, homestays with Peruvian families and tours of vibrant Cuzco and stunning Machu Picchu add extra dimension to this language immersion tour.

DAY 1: Lima

Your language school offers the unique opportunity to study Spanish while immersed in Peruvian culture.

All meals are included during the Homestay/Language portion of this trip. There may be a walk of up to 25 minutes to some of the host families in Cuzco, so ACIS recommends that students share taxis for travel to and from school. You have the option to stay at the school residence in double rooms at no additional cost, instead of with a family.

All standard programs include four hours of private instruction per day. Students will have shared rooms with families and shared rooms if they stay at the school residence. All meals will be provided at the school on a school stay or with your host family on a family stay.
