Excel offers language learning which stimulates the student and also enables him/her to learn more about Peru itself by living and studying in offsite programs outside of Cusco city.

We believe when students are taken out of a tourist environment, they will have more opportunities to practice the Spanish learnt in class. Excel offers three study options outside the city of Cusco in places where the student can appreciate the culture at first hand. These are offered as alternatives in order to make the learning process more varied and interesting. They are combined with at least one week of study in Cusco itself, and are particularly recommended for those students who are able to study Spanish for at least three weeks. Those studying for less time are also able to partake in the different programs:

Studying in Urubamba in the Sacred Valley of the Incas

Urubamba, the capital of the Sacred Valley is surrounded by beautiful snow-peaked mountains. It is a small, quiet town perfectly located to explore the valley and the important Inca Ruins such as: Chincheros, Pisaq (Sunday Andean market), the Inca salt beds and Ollantaytambo.

Our school and student residence is located close to town and it has comfortable, cozy bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen, and beautiful large gardens with light and airy classrooms. Free hikes and three meals per day are included.

Studying in the National Jungle Reserve of Manu

Studying in Manu is a unique experience. Manu National Park is internationally recognized as having almost unparalleled bio-diversity and provides students with the opportunity of seeing plant and animal life that they may have never experienced at such close range.

On the journey from Cusco to the National Park student will also see amazing sites, including Inca ruins, beautiful landscape and a cloud forest.

Tours into the rainforest are organized with an experienced guide and the teacher. Groups with a minimum of four students, depart on any day of the week. The price includes the tours, classes, accommodation in comfortable double rooms in a lodge and three meals per day.

To Pursue Offsite Experience

Students who are scheduled to study only in Cusco can change to one of the other programs after their arrival. They will be assessed the additional charges.

Each of our programs is of equal quality and our teachers alternate among the four locations.
