Studying Spanish in Cusco, Peru is popular for the same reasons that others travel to Cusco including its proximity to the Incan ruins of Machu Piccu, the city’s colonial architecture and a surprisingly active nightlife.
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) June 28, 2011
AmeriSpan Study Abroad, a leader in study abroad programs, has launched a Budget-friendly Spanish program in Cusco, Peru. This new lower cost option to learn Spanish in Peru is part of AmeriSpan’s Study Abroad: Push It Forward initiative. As part of AmeriSpan’s efforts to make it easier for more people to study abroad, the company has introduced a variety of initiatives including scholarships, grants, promotions, easy study abroad fundraising, student-friendly tuition at international colleges and budget-friendly Spanish immersion programs. Budget Spanish schools are also available in Buenos Aires (Argentina) and in Spain (Barcelona, Madrid & Salamanca). More will be added in the coming weeks.
The well-respected organization has been adding new school choices in popular language immersion destinations including 1st choice, university choice, fun choice and budget-friendly option. The budget-friendly choice is for participants who are looking to save money by trading some of the “bells and whistles” in exchange for a lower price. In these locations, participants can select AmeriSpan’s 1st Choice school if price is not the deciding factor or opt for the lower cost option. Budget-friendly schools offer fewer lodging options, program choices and may have more students in each class.
With this new addition, AmeriSpan now offers two Peru Spanish schools in the city of Cusco, Peru. “Peru attracts quite a few people studying Spanish because the country’s cost of living is low, and the large indigenous population insures that the markets are full of handicrafts and colorful textiles. Learning Spanish in Cusco is popular for the same reasons that others travel to Cusco including its proximity to the Inca ruins of Machu Piccu, the city’s colonial architecture and a surprisingly active nightlife, “ commented the organization’s co-founder, John Slocum.
