For the first time ever, ISA is offering the option to spend a semester in the majestic mountain city of Cusco, Peru!
If you are a student who enjoys the outdoors, you’ll appreciate the easy access to the whole city and the beautiful mountain air. Cusco is a very walk-able city and appeals to students who enjoy mountains, hiking and outdoor sports.
Geographically, the city of Cusco is very far removed from the modern capital city of Lima and perfect for students who prefer a calmer atmosphere to that of a bustling city. The people of Cusco have maintained their traditional culture and students living in Cusco will experience the culture behind one of the most advanced and influential societies in the Americas, the Inca.
Students who choose to study in Peru will also enjoy many wonderful foods that originate in this country. For example, did you know Peru is the birthplace of tomatoes, ancient grains such as quinoa, South American corn, and thousands of varieties of potatoes? Mate de coca tea and traditional Andean stews are also a great treat for those cold mountain nights.
The Cusco semester program offers courses at all levels of Spanish language that are designed to enhance the cultural experience of the city, so the program provides an easy way to live and study in one of the world’s most fascinating and mysterious locations!
