Reasons for a language course in Peru
Why a language study trip to Peru?
The Peruvian experience stretches along the Pacific coast and the Andes. Although more and more young Peruvians speak English in the urban areas, especially in the rural areas, where the hotspots of the country are located, Spanish is the most and often the only language spoken. Therefore, start your Peru experience with a language course in Peru to get to know the country and its people more authentically.
The nice thing about Peru is that you can use your new knowledge directly. Unlike many other countries in Latin America, the people in Peru speak a very clear and slow Spanish. You will be able to use your new language skills in everyday life.
Besides the locals, you will also meet many other international backpackers in your Spanish course, who will quickly turn from fellow students, to friends, to travel companions. During your Spanish course you will have the perfect opportunity to get in touch with others and to go on a language trip through Peru together.
