Learning Spanish in Cusco is extremely popular because the class sizes are small and Cusco is close to the impressive Inca ruins of Machu Picchu.

Don Quijote Spanish schools, a leading provider of Spanish language immersion programs, has begun offering the Spanish plus Volunteer Work Program at its Cusco Peru Spanish schools. The program is ideal for individuals seeking to learn Spanish in Peru and use their language skills by working in a Spanish-speaking country. Participants choose the type of placement from a variety of fields including social work, education, tourism, cultural work and catering. The program offers people the chance to give something back to the community while learning how to communicate in Spanish.
"Learning Spanish in Cusco is extremely popular because the class sizes are small and Cusco is close to the impressive Inca ruins of Machu Picchu," says Carmen Cantarino, Don Quijote’s Director of Sales.
The program includes a four-week language course, accommodation, meals and a minimum 4 week volunteer placement. Prior to starting their placement, participants are required to achieve an adequate level of Spanish. This is the reason why the Don Quijote Spanish plus Volunteer Work Program includes language training at the Cusco Spanish school. These small group lessons are for a minimum of 20 hours each week. Each participant lives with a Peruvian host family or may opt for another type of lodging that is not administered by Don Quijote.
Don Quijote offers support and guidance to volunteer workers to ensure that the volunteer work experience is a fruitful one. Throughout the entire placement, participants are expected to work 20-40 hours each week. As part of Don Quijote's commitment to serving the local communities, the organization directly donates to the charitable institution that program participants work with.
