    Super school, great family
    Peruwayna stands out as the ultimate destination for mastering Spanish. This school excels in its exceptional organization, boasting a multitude of highly skilled teachers and a wealth of top-notch learning resources. You can always access the online and the excellent materials provided. Great location and easy to access, economic, I wholeheartedly recommend Peruwayna without a shred of doubt. Muchas gracias Aaron, Pati, Christian, Fabricio and everyone at the school

    Escuela Maravillosa!
    Amazing school with wonderful teachers and staff! I took classes there for a week. Each day, we had fun activities during the break - trivia about Peru, trying local snack food, etc. I joined them for a cooking class in the evening, which was a lot of fun too. My teacher was Cristofer and he was knowledgeable, patient, and funny. I would take classes here again!

    Peruwayna Spanish school in Miraflores Lima
    Wonderful Spanish school for visitors and anyone wanting to learn Spanish. The teachers are all excellent and very hardworking. My group class teacher taught us so much in only 5 days. Private lessons help to reinforce the learning process. My cousin and his wife who are native to Peru could not believe I had only taken 5 days of lessons. They thought my (elementary) Spanish was good. Aaron Aguilar is a wonderful director of Peruwayna. He and all the staff and teachers make you feel very welcome in Peru. The social activities in the evening are also fun and help you get to know other students. It was an enriching experience meeting students from different countries. Peruwayna arranged for a taxi to drive me from the airport to my housing. They also arranged for housing with a local Peruvian in Miraflores. All you have to do is show up in Lima, and they take care of the rest. The location is very good and is totally safe to walk around. The streets are very well lit at night. I felt about as safe walking around Miraflores as if I was walking in the Upper East Side of New York. Lots of places to eat or have tea/coffee. Everything is in walking distance from the school including housing. Highly recommend this school. I chose this school over others because it is Peruvian owned and run. Other schools in the area are foreign owned and run. I wanted to support the local Peruvian economy.

    Absolutely the best option for Spanish language learning
    Peruwayna is the most amazing Spanish school! I went there years ago and then returned for another 6 weeks because the classes are so effective. The teachers are brilliant, the curriculum is written in such a way that you learn so much in a short amount of time, and the location is perfect! I can't recommend this school enough.

    Fantastic Spanish School
    We recently spent 3 weeks at Peruwayna in group classes. This was our first time taking language lessons and found the school to be well organized and the staff to be very friendly and highly competent. We met many others travellers, some with significant Spanish experience and others like us with limited knowledge. Patty was our teacher for the full 3 weeks and we were very happy with the experience and outcome. We would recommend the school to anyone looking to improve their Spanish. We plan to continue with the school through online learning once we return home.

    A fun and productive learning experience!
    I attended classes at Peruwayna during the month of February 2024 and had a fantastic experience. The school is incredibly well organized and provides a fun and productive learning environment. Lessons are based on a well thought out curriculum and the professors are engaging, patient and invested in the success of each student. The staff is incredibly welcoming and in addition to the classroom time provides social and educational activities (e.g., group dinners, dance lessons, visits to local museums, etc.). I would recommend without hesitation.

    A life changing experience plus amazing progress in speaking Spanish
    My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful things about the school. It is professional, organized, fabulously, located and simply all-around amazing. The teachers and the administrative staff are all incredible and show up every single day impeccably dressed and with the biggest of smiles, despite their long days. My husband and I went from never having had any Spanish classes at all to being able to bump along in Spanish quite nicely after only two weeks, which was beyond dark but Tatian’s,. We did a combination of private and group classes and highly recommend both.

I loved working with the people at Peruwayna. It was an amazing experience from the first moment I walked into the school. I know many people say they treat you like family; they really do at this school. Beyond learning the language, they offered many cultural activities to immerse a person into the culture. I would recommend this school to anyone wanting to learn, improve or simply have something to do while they are in Lima. The staff is amazing. If I had more than two thumbs I would put those up as well.

I had 3 weeks of group lessons at Peruwayna with no previous experience and am now able to confidently use what I learnt in conversations at restaurants, hotels, shops etc. My teacher, Christian L, was very patient and good at explaining concepts that didn’t make sense to me at first.

Group activities are a good way to experience Lima and get to know other students too.

Value for money is exceptional as well compared to what I would pay at home or online.

Peruwayna is a dream school to learn Spanish at. I had the privilege of staying in Lima for a month, taking group and private lessons at this school. They have thought of everything and the staff is so helpful! They offer fun activities during the week and excursions on the weekend. The instructors are fun, smart and become great friends. I always felt comfortable and welcome during my time here. I’ve tried learning Spanish so many times and I’ve progressed the best since taking classes through Peruwayna.

I’m now back in the US and take private classes online which has been an amazing option! I was worried I’d lose progress after coming back, but having this option makes me feel confident in my goals of learning Spanish. I’m so thankful for all this school has done for me and feel it is so worth it!

Amazing school with many professional teachers. What we like most of all - the combination of good lessons and a very friendly atmosphere. The administration is also very helpful and open-minded! Apart from lessons, Peruwayna provided many interesting activities, so that the students know Lima and Peruvian traditions. We would definitely recommend this school to study Spanish for various purposes and to spend a good time during activities!

I had the absolute best experience here! My teacher Fabricio was wonderful. We did two hours of private classes per day. I attended several of the school activities as well - great way to meet more people and keep practicing Spanish. The communication from the school is excellent and they even helped me arrange a home stay that was within walking distance of the school with a wonderful “abuelita.” I cannot recommend Peruwayna highly enough! I plan to continue classes online with my teacher when I return to the USA.

Was a great experience! From airport transportation to finding a homestay, everything was handled very safe and professionally. My teacher was friendly, knowledgeable and most of all patient. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking to study abroad. Thank you!
