ECELA CuscoCusco, Peru
Why choose ECELA Cusco:
Specialized immersive programs, with most students choosing to be placed with host families.
Daily activities to discover Cusco and its surroundings.
High focus on conversational skills.
Small student-teacher ratio, offering a highly personalized experience.
Chance of “hopping” to other ECELA schools within the same program, i.e. spending time at the schools throughout Peru, Argentina, and Chile.
ECELA Cusco philosophy:
We carefully designed a Spanish cultural immersion for our students’ success, incorporating a “school hop” between our schools for a multi-culture (and multi-accent) experience and spending over half of each class in micro-group conversational activities to get the most speaking practice. We encourage our students to interact as much as possible with other students, staff members, and with their hosts because we believe that lots of speaking time helps our students’ Spanish to not “just be good on paper”.

“I was only at ECELA Cusco for 3 weeks but it was such an amazing experience. The teachers are kind and friendly. They make learning Spanish fun. Shout out to Kris for teaching me Medical Spanish!! As well as Ygor and Di for all the fun activities! Everyday there was something interesting planned. I also stayed with a host family; ECELA does a great job placing you in loving families! One of the best programs I have ever come across. Amazing school and staff.”
