About the city

Cusco, with a population of almost half a million people, is the most tourist city in Peru and is also the Archaeological Capital of South America. Cusco is very exciting, full of history with a great diversity of archeological, natural and adventure attractions. It is also strategically located in southern Peru what makes it easy to travel to other important cities in a short time, such as Arequipa (Colca Canyon), Puno (Titicaca Lake) or even the Rainforest in Puerto Maldonado (Tambopata Nature Reserve).


Our school

We are located just ten minutes by bus from the Historic Center of the city. Our school in Cusco is in a non-tourist residential area, Magisterio neighborhood, very quiet and safe, surrounded by restaurants, cafes, banks and shopping centers, which provides our students with an authentic experience and the opportunity to practice Spanish inside and outside the school.  Our building has nine (9) classrooms, a coffee area, a kitchen, a patio with green areas, a terrace and Wi-Fi.

Last year, I studied spanish at the ECELA in both Cuzco and Lima, Peru. I enjoyed the experience tremendously in both places. All instructors are very professional and welcoming. Even though I only studied for three weeks, I really felt that I have made a lot of progress. I am not afraid of speaking Spanish with a native speaker again. In addition, I also participated many culture events organized by ECELA, and enjoyed learning the local culture and history.

When I arrived at the ECELA school in Cusco last June, I had difficulties to say even a few words in Spanish. However, in the relaxed atmosphere of the school and with the kind and excellent teachers, learning was easy. Actually I must say, I am a bit shy when it comes to express myself in a new language, but my teachers were very patient and helped me overcome my initial embarrassment. So I could enjoy the time in this beautiful and lovely city, with its kind and helpful people. I remember the last day, when my classes were over. What a feeling of nostalgia, when I passed by the house of the school.

Ecela was the perfect place to learn Spanish. Detailed, organized lesson plans, enthusiastic teachers, terrific fellow students made it a perfect environment to further my study of the language. I liked it so much, I returned a year later to spend a month studying with Ecela. One of the best experiences I have ever had.

I stayed all through February and I truly had an amazing experience. I took all my classes in Cusco and I loved every minute. I decided to stay with a host family to force myself to speak as much Spanish as possible, and the family I stayed with opened their arms and hearts to me immediately. I still keep in touch with them, and I’ve gone back to visit them later. Every day I learnt something useful, and the classes were organized so that you would practice grammar and then talk as freely as possible. This allowed us to have some very interesting discussions, especially since we were all from different countries and experiences.
