Programs

ANDEAN MEDICINAL PLANT + SPANISH
(2 weeks minimum)
Starting date: Any Monday
Level of Spanish required: Intermediate +

During this course students will not only learn about our medicinal plants in Peru to take a glance into our rich history but will simultaneously be learning Spanish in Cusco. This course will allow you to learn how Andean people cure a “cold”, how they fight cancer and how they preserve such perfect teeth.

This course is divided into Spanish classes and lessons studying the plants and ecosystems of the mountains. By the end of the course students will be able to recognize a large number of Andean medicinal plants and the way locals use them. We will complement our lessons with visits to the University and other organizations to learn about these plants in situ. We will also visit local markets to see the way Andean indigenous folk trade with these plants and meet Dr. Valdivia, the only doctor in Cusco who works with these medicinal plants.

Upon arrival, we will pick you up from the airport and you will meet your new family in Cusco if you decide to take the FAMILY STAY OPTION, if not, we will meet you at our school Monday to begin your lessons.
