The Spanish Language school in Cuzco offers the following Cultural Workshops with local teachers, which can be booked (for an additional fee) in blocks of separate hours, either during the week or weekend. If several students are interested in the same course, we offer excellent discount options. It's a great opportunity to learn about real traditional Peruvian culture and to complement the student's Spanish Course.
In this workshop we include different options: guitar, charango (Peruvian guitar), zampoña (panflute) and/or quena (flute). There is no need to have experience playing an instrument nor be able to read music. Students will quickly learn to play a few well-know songs. This is a "must" for people who are interested in Peruvian folklore!
Designed for people who want to learn more about traditional Peruvian cuisine! One free cooking class is included in the Student Activities, however there's so much more! Learn about the endless different kinds of "papas" (potatoes), about the traditional "quinua" and the use of native herbs!
Traditional Peruvian dance is a key component of native folklore. Try salsa and cumbia, but as well the tipical huayno, el vals, carnaval Cusqueño, huayllas, la diablada, majeño ....... Great fun!
Together with a local institution, the school organizes pottery workshops. For this course, students are required to sign up for a minimum of 10 hours. Students will learn different techniques and traditional Inca figures and styles.
