Spanish Immersion in Cusco Peru – USIL

Spanish Immersion in Cusco Peru – USIL

Spanish has become the second most spoken language in the world, and one of the best ways to learn and practice Spanish is being immersed in a native language country, plus having the opportunity to live in the historical city of Cusco.
For many years, Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola (USIL) has been hosting international students from around the world who want to live an excellent experience abroad as well as to learn Spanish in Cusco, Peru. The participants will learn and study through seminars, classes, cultural visits and extracurricular activities.
