My name is Luz Atapaucar. I Live in Cusco, Peru
where I have been teaching Spanish and Quechua to foreigners for over
15 years. I have a degree in Communication Science from the Universidad
Nacional de San Antonio Abad del Cusco.
a teacher, in the Spanish language immersion setting, I have had the
pleasure of teaching and providing homestay for people from all over the world. I teach
individual, one on one lessons as well groups of up to 10 students.
the last 10 years I have been teaching Spanish and Quechua
independently, with my own source materials. I find that this gives me
more flexibility to work with my students' needs and schedules and
leaves room for them to become acquainted with Andean culture, pursue
their specific interests in my city and visit Machu Picchu and other
For the purpose of extending my services as a Spanish and Quechua language instructor, the
idea arose to offer classes online with Skype. For the last 3
years, this arrangement has worked very well for those who want to
prepare before traveling to South America and those who want to
continue to improve after they leave their destination.
Cusco Immersion is an alternative for the independent traveler seeking to avoid the entrapments of the tourist bubble. There are no intermediaries. It is perhaps the only direct/fair trade language immersion and homestay service available in Cusco today.
I offer direct trade Spanish and Quechua lessons, and homestay in Cusco, Peru. I also teach online with Skype. Please find out more about each service on their respective pages.
