Owner description: Mundo Antiguo Spanish School is a Spanish language school situated just 100 metres from Cusco's main square - Plaza de Armas! We are also a specialized travel agency for trips in Peru and Bolivia. We take pride in our ability to give exceptional attention to each of our clients due to our small size - we are not a "tourist factory". We distinguish ourselves by listening to you, your interests and wishes. Therefore, we specialize in private lessons. ,,It's not our goal to teach Spanish; it's our goal to teach you Spanish."

Having re-located to Peru several years ago, I first found myself being based in Cusco. After receiving several glowing recommendations from fellow travellers, and also from the South American Explorers club, I decided to sign up for Spanish classes at Mundo Antiguo.

I am an admittedly lazy student, but the one-on-one classes I had were fun and so well structured that I found myself learning at a good and solid rate. It wasn't long before I had learnt sufficient to be able to feel confident speaking the language out an about around Cusco.

Since moving away from Cusco, I have taken 'top-up' classes elsewhere, but have not experienced anywhere near the same level of either professionalism or friendliness that I felt when with Rik and Norma at Mundo Antiguo. I am now considering taking more classes with them via their internet teacher option.

The best part of studying here, is that they were also the most competitively priced, much cheaper than some of the bigger chain schools.

I strongly advise anyone looking for classes to contact Mundo Antiguo, as the results speak themselves, and you are likely to receive a much better service than elsewhere.

I moved to Cusco for 6 weeks as I am traveling South America for 6 months. My main goal and deliverable was to become truly competent with speaking Spanish. I grew up in California where it would open a lot of doors for me. So, as soon as I set foot in town I started sifting through the plethora of schools and found Mundo Antiguo Spanish School through the South American Explorers club. The club is a wealth of information for budget travelers and it was the first one recommended to me. They definitely have some of the best prices! Yet they give so much more value than the majority of the other schools. Upon arrival Norma (the founder) and her husband Rik sat me down and greeted me as an individual with free coffee and tea. They are very nice people and their service is impeccable. They speak a few different languages. Thereafter, Norma conducted a free 30 minute assessment for my placement. I had the option of being place in a group of 3 or 4 persons at the same level, but opted for personal classes 2 hours per day. They have classes for all levels of commitment and are very flexible. I was given a work book at no addition cost. Most other students I met during my stay were not gifted a workbook or free daily coffee and tea to get the brain stimulated. The next day I had a teacher. His name was Jimmy. His name was actually Jimmy Hendrix (Peruvians have two first names and last names) and he was a prefect fit for me. He was actually recommended from a past student. He takes you through the lessons at your own pace. He is great teacher. Always on time and had great energy. He was very keen and aware on your progress. I highly recommend him! Tell him I say hi! All in all, my 5 weeks at the school helped immensely! I even met a gentleman that runs away from the winters in North American that has come back 4 or 5 years in a row to continue his education. I feel confident as I continue my travels and hone my skills. I thank the comfortable atmosphere and family of teachers for a great experience. I learned more in my 5 weeks than all of my high school and university classes. The school is perfectly located near the main plaza and has been around for some time. They will be there when you visit. They will be there for a long time. I doubt you will find another school with the same quality! I might even take Skype lessons with them as I am in different countries. Mundo Antiguo Spanish School is worth it. Take advantage of their flexibility and professionalism while in Cusco. You will be thankful because learning the language allows to absorb the culture so much more!
