There must be thousands of places that teach Spanish to tourists in Lima and Cuzco. Before choosing a language school, think carefully about what it is that you hope to gain from the experience. If you are visiting for a week and are mostly interested in picking up basic greetings and how to order a Ceviche, a school that also offers cultural experiences may be the one to go for. If you are keen on sharpening your grammar ability before taking the DELE Spanish proficiency test, you will not be content with a few “holas” and learning how to whip up a good Lomo Saltado. Know what you want and what you are being promised by the school before parting with any cash, there are enough schools floating around the city that you will be able to find one to meet your individual language needs.
Anyone considering coming on a trip to Peru will benefit hugely from studying some Spanish before you arrive. You will get so much more from your travel experience if you know the basics and Spanish is really not too difficult for English speakers to get a grasp of quickly.
