Spanish class with Diego

I took private lessons from Diego for over a week. He is always well prepared for the class, utilising games and other resources to teach Spanish. I will be continuing to take online classes from him even after I leave Cusco. I highly recommend taking spanish lessons from Diego!

Brilliant Spanish School!

I did 4 private lessons with Diego and they were fantastic! Diego was very patient with me and took the time to ensure I understood all of the vocabulary and concepts he was teaching me. Couldn’t recommend more highly (and the prices are super reasonable)!

Great Spanish Immersion!

We arrived in Cusco speaking almost no Spanish, and after six weeks of lessons we left with a good basic vocabulary and grasp of verb tenses and grammar. Our class time was balanced out with time to explore the city and get to know some of its neighborhoods. For us, an added treat was staying (and sharing meals) with a nearby family which was arranged by the school. We also appreciated some of the extra-curricular activities such as hiking trips and making ceviche!…

Great week with Amigos

I had a great experience at Amigos Spanish schools. I got taught by an excellent teacher, Diego, and I really learned a lot. Outside of the classes he organized other activities as well, all the while speaking Spanish with me. I can also recommend the family stay program. The quality of my stay was superb. I stayed with a very hospitable family where I had plenty of room for myself as well.
A recommendation!

Wonderful Spanish school!

I spent three weeks at Amigos and learned so much! I was at a beginner level when I arrived and now am able to communicate with much more confidence. I had the opportunity to learn from both Diego and Maria, and they are absolutely wonderful teachers. They are patient, kind, speak clearly and take the time to make sure you understand. Diego also organizes activities after classes and goes above & beyond, not only to make sure you have a pleasant experience at Amigos, but also in Cusco. I highly recommend Amigos if you are considering taking classes in Cusco, you certainly won’t regret it!

Great Spanish school and tutors

I completed one week at amigos with tutor and owner Diego. I really enjoyed the style of learning, focused around different games to get us explaining in present past and future tenses. The lessons are all i Spanish which really aids understanding. I have completed Spanish schools in Colombia too and I much preferred the style of amigos. I really feel I have come away learning a lot. We also had a ceviche cooking class which was great fun! Muchas gracias Diego y Amigos Escuela!

4 Weeks Spanish Classes

I understand pretty much after 4 weeks and I can communicate easily. even if I do make lots of mistakes people get what intend to say 😉 the teachers are all great! I enjoyed having classes with Maria, … Also, the owner Diego is very kind and helpful! He was always helping us with our questions and took care that everything is all right. I’m pretty much into sports and couldn’t find any place to run. So, he joined me and showed me a nice place where I could enjoy running! Thanks for that Diego!

In total I can fully recommend taking classes at amigos and staying with a family. It was a very good experience and I learned a lot. I’m sad to leave Cusco and amigos.
