We spent 3 months in Cusco and for most of this time we have been happy students in this school. We found the place when comparing a few options in San Blas. The school price-matched an offer we had from a different place and offered more flexibility with times and fewer people in a class. Indira, who is one of the folks running this place was very friendly and accommodating with arranging our schedule and moving our appointments on short term notice when it was necessary.
Our teacher (Nayda) was great. She was patient, motivating and by the end of our time in Cusco we became friends. If I am ever in town again, I will want her to continue improving my Spanish.

Taking Spanish lessons at Wiracocha makes the best experience in Cusco! I studied Spanish in Wiracocha for 6 weeks in May. The teachers at school are super friendly and professional. When I first arrived in Cusco, I couldn't speak a single word in Spanish other than "Hola" and " Gracias". I'm glad that after the 6 weeks, I am able to handle basic communication already! If you take classes at Wiracocha, don't hesitate to book a homestay through the school! My host Magali is a PERFECT host! She cooked really delicious local food for me everyday and we always spent the evenings together after my classes which helped a lot with improving my Spanish! I cried so bad when I left this wonderful city. Thank all those amazing people for giving me such a great time and treating me as if I'm part of their family! I hope and I will be back as soon as I can for sure! :)))

I did a three week intensive program at Wiracocha and by the time I was done, I was able to speak to people in the street (amazing) and continue learning more vocabulary as I continued on to other cities because I had all the structure and rules down.

It has been a really good feeling and I am even more fluent now, having continued to review, practice and talk in the street.

Their instructors are good, cooking and dance classes are ace, and the environment is comfortable and welcoming in an old Spanish colonial building.

Finally, they will help you get an excellent price on a hike. I booked the 5-day Salkantay hike through the school which was of excellent quality and paid far less than others on the tour. Much appreciated, Wiracocha.

Free coffee and hot tea every day, sweet little bakeries and eateries nearby and excellent staff and administrators (Indira and Ericksson!)

I loved it. Recommended.

I was in Cusco for 4 weeks with a group from my college and enjoyed every minute of it. The city is amazing and there is always somewhere good to go eat. I studied Spanish at Wiracocha for the summer, learned a lot and was able to get my minor in Spanish for my university back home! The teachers were super friendly and helpful. The school also took us to amazing restaurants, provided salsa dancing lessons, and cooking lessons every week. They answered any of our questions and explored the city with us as well. I would highly recommend Wiracocha to anyone wanting to learn Spanish. It is close to the Plaza de Armas and within walking distance of anywhere you would want to go in Cusco! You won't be disappointed!!

I had an amazing week,

I didn’t think I would learn so much so quickly. Indira was so friendly and made me feel really comfortable.

My instructor Indira was really professional, fun, and knowledgeable. She was sick one day and another instructor took over for her. He also had a great teaching style and was very helpful. The school was easy to communicate with via email and phone. Conveniently located in San Blas. Free salsa lesson one day which was fun. Weekly dinner with instructor and students from the school was also nice. I plan to take online lessons with Wiracocha now that I’m back home. Highly recommended!

I did one week of intense classes at Wiracocha and it really helped much to improve my language knowledges! The teachers and administrators do great work and we had lots of fun too!
Besides the classes they organise a dinner every Wednesday evening with all the students, there is a Salsa class on Thursday and every Friday they prepare a little something around 1 p.m. This friday we learned how to make a Pisco Maracuja for example.
They will even help you book tours around Cusco and I also had a really great homestay at Magaly's <3
And they also have a nice courtyard where you can enjoy the sun and talk to other students in the breaks. I really felt comfortable and happy to be here! I will definetly choose Wiracocha again, if coming back to Peru and Cusco!
Thank you so much for everthing guys :-)
