    Testimonials“The three weeks that I have spent studying here at Amauta School have been one of the highlights of my six months of travelling around the world. I´ve taken a few Spanish courses in the past and the classes here at Amauta are by far, the best lessons that I have had. The teachers are wonderful, the facilities are great and Cusco is an amazing place to live. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Amauta to anyone looking for a great learning, social and cultural experience

    Marinera, a typical Peruvian dance!

    Marinera Norteña - Peru

    Marinera is a coastal dance of Peru and it is a graceful and romantic couple’s dance that uses handkerchiefs with the dancers´ hands. The dance is an elegant and stylized reenactment of a courtship and it shows a blend of the different cultures of Peru. The Music starts and they watch one to the other to the eyes, through the distance that measures the assumed challenge. She, the always secure female, always provocative, always first, raises her handkerchief and she waves it with grace smiling to the love and to the life and shining in its brief and slowed down stroll, showing all the enchantment that the man wishes to conquer. From a distant spot he greets her with his hat in hand and he announces to her, with his elegant and decided steps, that he does not hear any escape of refusal, and that as a great connoisseur of the game, he dies of impatience to win… The dance itself has gained a lot of Recognition and is one of the most popular traditional dances of Peru.


    History of the Spanish language in America

    The pre-Hispanic American society was a conglomerate of different people and languages that politically turned to be part of the Spanish Empire under a common language. The American idiomatic diversity was so strong that some authors estimate that this continent is the most fragmented one in terms of linguistics, with about 123 language families, lots of those, in their turn, have tens or even hundreds of languages and dialects. Amongst these, it’s important to quote some of the main indigenous languages, in terms of speaking people and their contribution to Spanish language which are Náhuatl, Taíno, Maya, Quechua, Aymara, Guaraní and Mapuche.
