Our Intensive Immersion Program is our school's most popular program. It offers a well-balanced curriculum covering all aspects of language learning, including reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Our small group classes are capped at 5 students, which allows close focus on each student's individual learning while at the same time providing a fun atmosphere to practice and reinforce communication skills.
All our courses employ syllabi that meet the International Standards given by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).
Our program is based on the most cutting-edge research on language pedagogy: the "communicative method". We focus on real-world communication skills instead of just rote grammar.
Our focus is primarily on Latin-American Spanish, and you will be pleased to know that Peruvian Spanish is considered one of the clearest and most internationally understood accents in the Spanish speaking world.
This course includes:
Study materials (booklets + access to our new Online Campus)
Placement evaluation with our faculty upon arrival
Peruwayna discounts card for local businesses

Estimated level achievement & progress :
Students enrolled on our Intensive Immersion Program can estimate their expected progress as follows:
*Superior and Proficiency levels are only available with private classes.
In an effort to keep our students and teachers safe during the pandemic, we have temporarily capped our small groups at 2 people per class. Also, 50% of lesson time will take place at school, and the other 50% will take place outdoors in order to practice and apply your comunicative skills in real-life, hands-on situations while exploring Lima.
* This voluntary safety policy for our Spanish school in Lima will remain in effect while Peru's state of sanitary emergency remains in place or until the pandemic in Peru no longer poses a high risk for small group gatherings (for example, until an effective vaccine is widely available).
