Study Spanish at ILC while you work in Perú

While you're working at ILC, you can study Spanish in Amazonas.

Remember that there are very few people in Amazonas (or even outside of Miraflores/Cusco), who speak English, so further travel will be made a lot easier if you can communicate.

You can study at beginner level, or intermediate level, or simply take conversation classes to make sure you understand the castellano spoken in Peru.

You can study daily at 3.30pm, or take a longer, more intensive class at any time during the weekends when you're not exploring the Amazonas region.

Normally, we charge students $7 per hour for Spanish classes, including materials.
For ILC teachers, this is reduced to $5 per hour. There are further discounts available if you decide to study for a month or even longer.

If you and other teachers want to study in a group, then the prices reduce as follows:
2 people: $4 per hour3 people: $3 per hour
4 people: $2 per hour

Some of your fellow staff members will already speak Spanish well. Others will be confused by the rapid speed of Peruvian Spanish.

Yet others will be beginners, or wanting to brush up on things long forgotten.

If you are working at the same time as a non-Spanish speaker, it’s a good idea to get together to study at a lower price.

What our teachers say: Vicky

Deciding to teach for a month at ILC was one of the best decisions I've made.

The teachers and students were great which made the experience loads of fun and extremely rewarding!

Vanessa and Fidel have complied a great range of materials and are always around to answer any questions regarding lesson planning!

Chachapoyas really is pretty unique and my experiences there were quite different to the rest of my travels in Peru! Firstly, it was great to get a taste of Peruvian life away from the more obvious tourist destinations in the South! Also as Chachapoyas is on the brink of a to
urist boom because of it's stunning scenery and surrounding archeological sites, it is worth visiting it now before it becomes too spoilt.

You can also experience the best chocolate cake in Peru at San Jose (it's
what dreams are made of!), Pizzeria lock-ins complete with Salsa lessons, top quality Cumbía music in Cho Cho's and be back in time to make up a dance routine for the Friday Karaoke lessons!
