Uchu Cooking Classes Arequipa: what do users think?
Lieke Milder: This fairly new cooking class is of really good value. Chef Harol taught us classic Peruvian dishes like ceviche, lomo saltado and as a dessert the famous 'Pisco Sour'. These dishes aren't too complicated, but they were full of flavour. Weird to say about something you prepared yourself, but it was the best ceviche and lomo saltado I've had so far, and I tried many more before in my travels. Also the place is cosy and the kitchen is spotless.
Michi Niederberger: I loved it! Great experience - had a great time, definitley recommend!

cooking classes Peruvian Flavor: what do users think?
Abhishek Warrier: I recently had the pleasure of attending a Peruvian cooking class organized by the talented chef Arthur, and I must say, it was a fantastic experience!From the moment I walked into the class, I could feel the passion and expertise of Chef Arthur. He had everything set up perfectly, with all the necessary ingredients and cooking tools neatly arranged on the countertops.The class began with an introduction to Peruvian cuisine, and Chef Arthur gave us a brief history of the different flavors and ingredients that make up this unique culinary tradition. He also provided us with helpful tips on how to properly prepare and cook each dish.Throughout the class, Chef Arthur was patient and engaging, guiding us through the steps of preparing a delicious Peruvian meal. We learned how to make classic dishes such as Ceviche, Lomo Saltado, Chicha Morada and Pisco Sour, and each one turned out absolutely delicious.One thing that really stood out to me was Chef Arthur's attention to detail. He made sure that each dish was perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection, and he was always on hand to answer any questions we had.Overall, I would highly recommend Chef Arthur's Peruvian cooking class to anyone who loves to cook or is interested in learning more about this fascinating cuisine. Chef Arthur's passion for cooking and his knowledge of Peruvian cuisine make this class an unforgettable experience that I would definitely attend again.
Felice Rivellese: Amazing experience. Arthur was very welcoming, more than just explaining and guiding you through the recipes he shared his love for his country and the Peruvian cousine. This is a true experience, not simply a touristic activity. You get to use a professional kitchen and Arthur shares a few basic techniques for cutting, stir frying etc If you are in Arequipa and you like cooking/eating (no previous experience is needed) this shouldn't be missed!!
Mareike Englich: Toller Kochkurs, leckeres Essen, schöne ErfahrungHat unseren Aufenthalt in Arequipa bereichert ☺️
Katie Killeen: This class was one of the highlights of our trip in Peru! Learned so much about cooking from Arthur. The ceviche and lomo saltado were top quality and we done everything from scratch ourselves. Lots of fun too 😊
Charlotte Kuziek: Wir haben einen Kochkurs mit Arthur gemacht und es war einfach fantastisch. Wir hatten eine tolle Truppe und jede Menge Spaß. Da wir nicht so gerne Fisch essen, konnten wir alternativ zu Ceviche, Causa de Pollo zubereiten. Wir können den Kurs in jedem Fall weiterempfehlen!
David Scheppus: Super Kochkurs! Wir haben extrem viel Wissen vermittelt bekommen. Jeder konnte alle Schritte selber machen und dazu seine Messerfertigkeiten ausbessern. Wir haben uns gefühlt wie richtige Kochlehrlinge! Wir haben zwei Gänge gekocht und bekamen noch Getränke dazu. Absolute Empfehlung für alle Koch- und Essensbegeisterte aller Niveaus!
Simon Schneider: This cooking class was great! We learned about cooking techniques, knive skills, perviuan food culture, a bit about food science and the best recipes for ceviche and lomo saltado.Compared to other cooking classes this one does not skip the most interesting steps and you will cook everything from scratch. Arthur can share his cooking knowledge in fluent english (and surprisingly with bits of Dutch, German and other languages).The class was fun and he encouraged the communication between guests. We even finished the afternoon with the other participants in a bar closeby.Two nitpicks: the knives were a bit dull and I would have loved to also learn a classic Arequipan dish.
Denise: Very good experience! Besides the recipes we also learned a lot about cooking techniques. Making the lomo saltado was very spectacular with a LOT of fire. Also it was the best lomo saltado i have eaten in peru!
Peter Pan: Strong recommendation! Arthur has lived in Europe for several years, speaks an excellent English and will explain not only explain some technical details but also how you will be able to make your delicious meals at home when not all ingredients are easily available. Great teacher with much knowledge.
Connor: We absolutely loved our cooking class through Peruvian flavours. Arthur taught us some culinary tricks to improve our cooking at home, took time to describe the dishes and steps ahead of time, and was very helpful during the cooking process. He was very engaging, had fantastic English and even took pictures and videos throughout the class for us! Can't recommend this enough!
Martin Einarsson: Great experience! Arthur is a very pedagogical teacher that explains and shows how things should be done and then you try it yourself. We did the Criollo menu and both the Ceviche and Lomo Saltado de Alpaca turned out great. Highly recommended!
J J: Fabulous cooking class and experience with Arthur, highly recommend!!
Ninja R.: Me and my partner went to do the Criollo cooking class. It was an amazing experience!!! Super tasty welcome cocktail and the chef and owner of the rather fancy restaurant is a great teacher, providing us with tons of new information and knowledge. Super fresh and beautiful ingredients and a great outcome. Amazing value for money, we loved it. If we had more time in Arequipa, we would do the other two menus as well. Thank you so much for the lovely afternoon.
Victor Liu: Cordón Blue style of instruction.. my sister and I cook casually at home but we were able to follow along with Chef Arthur. He explained the subtleties very well. The Chupe de Camarones and Rocoto Relleno rivales the ones made by the Picanterias :). I will definitely be coming back for more classes next week. I've done cooking classes in Napa Valley in California before and this was way better. High value, under marketed. Can't miss!
Brent Bovenzi: Amazing cooking class. Food came out incredible. Instructor was super informative and friendly. Even gave us a ton of tips to enjoy our stay in Arequipa.
Jane Z: The chef and restaurant owner had enormous knowledge with Peruvian cuisine. Trained and worked in the Michelin star restaurant in France in his previous life. The class is delivered very professionally and super organized. The commercial kitchen is THE place to learn cooking. Being a semi professional chef myself highly recommend it.
Clothilde Petitjean: Cooking classes at Arthur's restaurant are an amazing experience ! Arthur's is not reluctant to share his technics and is really a good teacher ! I also recommend going on the market tour with him, he knows his way around ;-)
Joe Mou: Chef Arthur is a great teacher! Dishes were made with great quality in an excellent commercial kitchen.
Xander Macfarlane: Arthur is a true expert. Ceviché was outstanding
Charles CG: Très agréable. Le chef Arthur est passionné et très gentil. Une expérience mémorable 😃

Peruvian Cooking Experience: what do users think?
Joost de Groot: Unfortunately, not a very good experience. The class started late. During the class “experience” it was not clear what was going to be cooked. No recipes were provided to the people participating. Following we solely needed to cut some food preparing for the cooking which was done by the instructor and not by the participants. Cooking techniques were not clear. The dishes were not tasteful. All in all a strange and disappointing experience.
Rik Kotter: We booked a cooking class this morning through our hostel that was supposed to be at 4pm (they also have an 11am option). However, slightly after 11am they called us to cancel our class. Since we're leaving tomorrow to Colca Canyon and the morning class has just started, that means we can't a cooking class anymore in Arequipa because of this cancellation.Although we would have still preferred the 4pm option, would they have communicated earlier that they would cancel it, we could've lived with the menu of the morning class, but not even that was possible now.And yes, we know today is the feast of Santa Rosa de Lima (a holiday), but that does not excuse the poor communication on their behalf.

Jonathan Bywaters: Great class! It was just us 2 but the teacher was really helpful and informative, they laid pout the table door us to eat our food and had prepped everything so we came in, learnt how to cut and then cook the food. it was delicious!Bi lingual teacher so we could have the lesson in English, really enjoyed it and look forward to making the dishes when we’re home with the instructions
Juliana Valdivia: It was a very interesting, fun and rich culinary experience. Very tasty Peruvian recipes.

Peter Wright: Fantastic experience. Ale was a very knowledgeable and fun host. Great company, food, atmosphere and taught in a manner that will be brought back to my kitchen.
Eloise Bluck-Madden: Had a great time and the Peruvian Cooking Experience and learned a lot about the history of the dishes and the area. The hotel and kitchen were beautiful and the host was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious, can't wait to try to recreate it at home
alonso espino: It is a fascinating experience, the people who give the lessons are very capable and always attentive to each one when they need it, I consider one of the best in arequípa
Kayla Abouly: C'était GENIALISSIME !Nous avons passés un super moment pendant cette cooking class.Nous avons appris à cuisiner une entrée papa rellena et un lomo saltado comme plat principal.En plus d'avoir cuisiner de A à Z nous même, nous en avons appris beaucoup sur la culture péruvienne. Chacun prépare (et peut décorer à sa guise) sa propre assiette, les ingrédients sont d'excellente qualité nous nous sommes régalés !Je conseille vraiment cette activité c'était super!Merci beaucoup ! :)
maureen ba: First of all the activity started 15min late while we were asked to arrive 10 min in advance... Not nice.We did the Lomo saltado class, we were 3 people. We paid 75 soles each for 2 hours class. It went well, we did one small meal and then Lomo saltado. It was OK because the chef is really nice but if I have to rate the class, it was not the best.First of all the class lasted 1h45min and during it we ate the meal so we only cooked 1h15min maybe. It did not learn much as the was not technical part, it was really basic.I did not learn anything about Peruvian history or culture and the ingredient were basic, nothing so local.I spent a good moment thanks to the chef but honestly the class is disappointing.
Rebecca Law: The Andean menu food was tasty, but undercooked in order to rush us out. There was no explanation of the history or culture of the foods. Overpriced for what it was.
Hakim Benkara: The experience was excellent. Great staff, great recipes and a marvellous meal at the end!!
Christina Mastantuono: Amazing experience. A must try in Arequipa. Lady, the chef, is an angel and the food is great.
Erika Casa de Avila: A great activity ready for you wveryt day in Arequipa except Sundays.

Emanuele Militello: My favourite restaurant in Arequipa. I normally don't choose vegetarian sushi, but this place does some of the best sushi I've ever had (so much so I went twice).It's also really well priced. I'd recommend going for the nigiris and gunkan with the makis, and trying the ceviche which is a get vegan take on a classic.The courtyard is also really cool and representative of the city's architecture.
Marine Guéguen: C'était bon mais sans plus.Nous avons tout d'abord commandé un jus mangue, fruit de la passion et gingembre qui n'avait aucune saveur. Nous pensons qu'il était coupé à l'eau. Pour le reste c'était bon mais rien d'extraordinaire. Les saveurs n'étaient pas dingues. C'était assez fade. Les tailles étaient assez petites mais ce n'est pas cher donc c'est normal.Le décor est sublime, très sobre à la japonaise. Il faisait un peu froid aussi car les portes sont ouvertes sur l'extérieur. Nous avons mangé en manteau. Dommage

AlexanderPAULA YanezGASCA: Excellent concept and quality of food. A different menu in makis with delicious and healthy flavors. Dessert in chocolate, apple and banana makis or rolls was a revelation. I recommend them.
Valentin Poussier: C'est délicieux mais peu copieux si on veut s'en sortir pour moins de 50 soles par personne.La soupe miso est un régal, mais même pour 5 soles, elle est ridiculement petite (une tasse de café).Les gyozas ne sont pas hyper garnis mais excellents.Les sushis également, même si dans les combos à 16 pièces, il y a 6 makis minuscules avec seulement du riz et un tout petit bout soit d'avocat, soit d'épinard.Les autres pièces sont succulentes, on en oublie que c'est du végétalien même lorsque l'on a l'habitude de manger des sushis classiques.Le service est correct quoique assez froid, on n'entend presque pas les serveurs parler qui marmonnent tout bas on ne sait pourquoi (les deux qu'on a eu en tout cas).

CEPESMA IDIOMAS SPANISH SCHOOL AREQUIPA: what do users think?
Liss Huerta: Excellent
Dan Rowe: I moved to Arequipa at the beginning of January 2013, since then I have taken Spanish classes at three different institutes. I always found them to be a chore and a necessity that had to be done. That was until I started having lessons at Cepesma Idiomas in December 2013.Cecilia, through her teaching, has somehow made my Spanish lessons to be one of the highlights of my week and something that I look forward to going to. As a result my Spanish has improved tenfold.At other institutes I was just inundated with sheets of paper that had rules and exercises but with Cecilia, she makes sure that you really understand and always has a different exercise waiting if your attention starts to waiver.I cannot recommend Cepesma Idiomas enough and believe it will be one of the best decisions you make on your trip to Arequipa.Cepesma Idiomas also offer home stays, even though I have not stayed there personally, I have seen the accommodation and it looks very nice and what better way to improve your Spanish than staying with a Peruvian family.If you're thinking of taking Spanish lessons in Peru, head to Cepesma Idiomas!

Roberto Condori Portugal: I remember that before the food was top, the best and it was always my reference for makis.But today I went and it was a total disappointment :( my grill makis were full of oil and the meat was red hot... I didn't want to be rude when I complained at the place, but now I'm sick to my stomach and I'm not going back for a loooong good time, I had never tried bad makis there... but I suppose there is a first time for everything.

Edna muñoz de ojeda: In short, sushi is not my thing.
Mauricio Pérez Segura: Good food
Slimen Bakir: Fuyez. Aucune variété. On vous sert le même sushi sans goût avec des sauces différentes. Il y a mieux en ville. Le prix peut paraître attirant mais dans ce cas il vaut mieux payer plus cher et bien manger (Espacio Lagom par exemple)
Sarah: Very disappointed. We went to try the Thursday all you can eat as the reviews are so positive. First you have to order on a menu the rolls you want. But the menu just have the names of the roll on it : no details about the ingredients, no pictures. Ex :"sensación". So we had to ask each time and try to remember what was in it. Secondly we discovered while tasting them that it was always the same roll (avocado and fried I dontknow-what) they would just change the sauce and the topping...! No salmon at all, and no real piece of fish. Lots of rice so they would be really fast disgusting. Thirdly : we were supposed to have cream cheese inside the california. They were so little, you could not feel it at all. So possibly savory rolls turns into dried rolls.Arequipa seems to have so many better and real sushis options than Yakuza...! Don't make the same mistake than us.
Manuel Enrique Arenas Cáceres: Very nice, to go with the family

Llama Education Spanish FACE-TO-FACE / ONLINE Spanish School Arequipa Peru 🇵🇪: what do users think?
diane crisci: Llama Education provides a unique and personalized experience of cultural emersion and language education.The one to one language classes were superior to any that I had previously attended in South and Central America. The highly experienced teacher provided classes that were specifically tailored to my levels and needs.During the afternoons, there was the option of attending additional classes, touring the city with Maria as your personal guide or volunteering. Unlike other programs, there is no additional charge to volunteer.Every afternoon, Maria escorted me to a different point of interest in the city. She is very knowledgeable regarding the history and culture of Peru.My stay at the student housing was comfortable and fun. The food was delicious !I'll be returning next year.
Tanner Hayes: I studied Spanish with Maria for 10 hours over 5 days and loved it. She's a great teacher, with a cool little school, in a splendid neighborhood. Maria definitely helped jog my memory of many of the words and grammatical concepts that I had learned years ago. You should definitely choose Llama Education Spanish School for your lessons while in Arequipa.
Chris Brooksbank: We did a 7 days of Spanish school with Maria and Marta. Doing a grammar and conversation lesson each day. Both great teachers.We took lessons having done some basic Spanish via apps so we were close to beginner. The lessons were really well structured, we were encouraged and challenged. As a result our Spanish really improved and were able to have basic conversations by the time we left.The lessons were enjoyable. And Maria was super kind and helpful to us throughout our days there. Many thanks and hope to see you again in the future!
Ville Palonen: Llama Education is a first-class Spanish school and highly recommended!I have experience from other Spanish schools in Mexico, Guatemala and Spain, and I can honestly say that during my 2 weeks (40 hours total) in Llama Education in December 2022 I learned much more than I was hoping for.One-to-one teaching method was extremely flexible and worked really well for me because everything could be customized to my needs. I enjoyed especially the fact that even grammar lessons included lots of conversation, in fact it didn’t feel like grammar studies at all when we were talking about local politics or Xmas traditions.It's possible to study online, too; I had a few Whatsapp classes before my visit to Arequipa, and will have another dozen online classes during 2023.Many thanks to Maria who runs the school – you are super!
Trevor Farris: What a time, what a place, with amazing, welcoming, and helpful people. It has been seven months since I arrived in Arequipa, so I am writing this review with a bit of time and space in between, but it was such a powerful experience it feels like I was there just last week.Firstly, the amount that my Spanish improved from being in Arequipa for only three weeks was unlike anything I experienced in California, and I had been taking Spanish classes for a few prior to going to Peru. I had a pretty good understanding of how the language worked and a decent grasp on the grammar, but I never could have a real conversation in Spanish, whether that was because I never had anyone to practice with as intensely as I did at Llama Education, or whether that was because I was afraid to practice. But taking classes helped me get the practice I wanted and needed to actually feel like I could have conversations in Spanish. The classes are very intimate-- they are one on one, you and the teacher, so you get so much time to speak in Spanish, fail speaking in Spanish, and learn to speak in Spanish. Martha and Jimmy were my teachers and they were very helpful at pushing me to grow my vocabulary and understanding and use of grammar. It was also great having one on one classes because you end up talking about real things, not those silly American Spanish class conversations. My teachers became my good friends while I was in Arequipa. Also through the classes I got to learn a lot about Peru, it's history, it's culture, it's food, etc.Secondly, Maria is amazing and so helpful. When I arrived in Arequipa, Maria came to the airport and picked me up in a taxi, and she showed me around the city and where the school was and how to use the buses. While we were wondering around the city, the family I was originally going to be staying with while I was there called and said they were no longer able to host me, so Maria offered for me to stay with her, which I did, until another family she reached out to was ready to host me. It was very kind of her to host me, and it was nice to be able to talk with her (almost entirely in Spanish) and get to know her. Maria was also so helpful in trying to retrieve my lost baggage from the airlines. I didn't have my luggage for a week, and spent a lot of time trying to locate it and get it to Arequipa, and Maria also helped a lot. She came with me to the airport to try to talk to them there, she called people, etc.Thirdly, I ended up staying in Arequipa with a family that Maria knows, and that was an amazing experience in itself because it is quite a different experience to traveling than one gets if they were to stay in a hotel or hostel. The family I stayed with was also very welcoming, helpful, and kind. They included me in all of their plans. I got to meet and get to know their extended family as well as them. They talked to me and made sure to talk to me, which was good because I was able to get more practice speaking Spanish at the families home after going to Spanish school.And finally, Arequipa is a cool and beautiful city. It's different than Cusco--which is the other city I visited in Peru-- because there seems to be a lot less tourism, which I think is good because in Cusco a lot of people speak English, but in Arequipa it seemed like the amount of English spoken was a lot less, which again is good for practicing Spanish.Llama Education provided a great experience for me and anyone considering participating in the school should definitely do it!
Carlotta Weickmann: Ich habe eine Woche Sprachunterricht bei Maria genommen und auch dort gewohnt. Es war sehr toll. Die Lehrerinnen waren super lieb und aufmerksam und mein spanisch hat sich auf jeden Fall verbessert. Man lernt sehr viel in einer Woche und gewöhnt sich schnell ans sprechen.Ebenfalls habe ich die Freiwilligenarbeit mit den Kinder gemacht. Das war sehr toll, die Kinder sind super lieb und offen. Alles sehr zu empfehlen. Vielen dank Maria
Berber Dotinga: I have spend 4 lovely and intense week at llama education. I loved Raúl and Marta as my professors and learned so much. I went from basic to semi fluent!! Everyone is very welcome and caring. Would love to come back and recommended it 10/10.
Kevin Ehmke: Ich hatte eine wundervolle Erfahrung während meines einwöchigen Sprachkurses und kann das sehr kompetente und liebenswerte Team der Sprachschule nur weiterempfehlen!
Niklas Bobbe: Was here for 2 day a 6hours crash course. Was really good intensive 12 hours! Very caring & good teachers. Also they were able to speak good English if needed. The Training while walking outside in the city is also very helpful to master everyday interactions.
Etienne: ¡Hola amigo!J'ai étudié à Llama Education en septembre dernier durant 6 semaines, en logeant à l'école.Et bien moi qui ne parlait et ne comprenait pas un mot d'espagnol en arrivant; ma progression à été aussi surprenante que fulgurante !En une semaine, je me suis mis à comprendre et à parler -un peu-. Deux semaines je pouvais faire les basiques solo (aller au supermarché, coiffeur... ), en 3 semaines j'ai pu me débrouiller en tête à tête avec une latina 🤔😁 et ainsi de suite.Au bout de 6 semaines j'étais fin prêt pour voyager sans aucune crainte.Maria est une très belle personne, nous avons eu beaucoup de bonnes conversations et, cerise sur le gâteau, elle cuisine super bien !Le fait de loger à l'école m'a permis de rester en immersion totale et de pratiquer mon espagnol à temps plein.Les différents professeurs sont tous pleins de qualités et vous apporteront beaucoup, merci Martha, Jimmy et Manuel !Aujourd'hui je suis sur le point de rentrer en France après 10 mois d'aventures (pour la plupart au Pérou) et je parle couramment l'espagnol.Un grand merci à Maria et Llama Education, sans qui tout cela n'aurait pas été possible ! 🤗
Hamish Grime: Maria is such a lovely woman - shes great to learn with and very supportive. I particularly like that she provides plenty of information (and homework) and can structure the lessons for you but remains very flexible. She was great with all my questions and i felt i could take the lesson where i wanted. Definately recommend!
Kyle Green: I had been researching Spanish immersion schools all over South America for over a year before choosing Llama Education in Arequipa. What this school offers cannot be found anywhere else- teacher rotation for advanced listening skills/training, a structured curriculum that covers ALL tenses beginning with indicative and finishing with subjunctive, cultural education covering Incan history as well as Peruvian business and politics, sports, cuisine, music, and health and wellness, and the teachers are EXCELLENT. I completed the entire duolingo Spanish language course, the entire pimsleur Spanish audio course, and I had taken private lessons for 10 months before taking classes at the Llama school and I can honestly say that these are the best teachers you are going to find in any immersion program. Also important to note is that if at any time the school starts to reach peak attendance, Maria the owner of the school and head of the program has alternate locations to accommodate student overflow. This is a common complaint that other students have about other schools in other countries. Usually if a school reaches peak attendance, the group sizes just increase or lesser experienced teachers are brought in on a temporary basis and the students end up suffering. This WILL NOT happen at the Llama school. I would recommend the 6 week package and I would also recommend taking the local accommodation option or staying at the school. This guarantees a full immersion and a safe and healthier experience overall for a price that cannot be beat.My wife and I had an unexpectedly bad experience at an airbnb and Maria literally rescued us. Unexpected things happened and we needed help and Maria was there to help deal with our airbnb cancelation (made calls, translated, negotiated, saved us money) and found a last minute accommodation for us at the school. It was incredible. We ate well, toured the city, met and hung out with neighbors and friends, lived life as a local and left with an unforgettable experience.
Mike Cannon: Very good lessons. I learned the basics of Spanish. I highly recommend Christian, Christian is god. His expressions are perfect. Pretty good to imitate though.
Naomi Wong: I’ve had a great experience with Llama Education. All contact with Maria has been easy, friendly and always helpful. She made a customized program for me adapted to my level of Spanish at a schedule that worked best for me. For 5-6 weeks I followed individual classes, face to face (respecting all covid measures). The classes were 50/50 talking and grammar, which was a nice combination. My level increased a lot! Next to the classes, Maria helped me finding voluntary work during my stay in Arequipa and was always available to help or think along with me.Muchas gracias por todo Maria!
Julie Ha: It was my first time traveling to Perú– my first time traveling out of the country by myself, and I am so glad that I chose to go to Spanish Llama Education! I learned so much in a short amount of time. María and Martha made me feel at home and taught me so many things that I will keep with me forever.I came here for a few weeks, and Martha was my teacher. She taught me everything entirely in Spanish, and did so in a simple way, yet incorporated in lots of vocabulary. During this time, I had just completed the grammar series at my school, and wanted a way to practice outside of the classroom. At Spanish Llama Education, I learned a lot about the landscape, history, grammar, numbers, culture, cultural specific words/phrases, foods, and so much more of Perú. The experience felt very personal, because along with learning about the country, I learned a lot about myself, since Martha loved to ask me questions, and also loved to tell me stories. I liked that she made conversation feel natural and comfortable, and it was a welcoming space where I felt free to make mistakes, learn from it, and try to use new vocabulary that I’ve learned. Her handwriting was neat, and she used lots of colors, which helped me immensely. The paper worksheets were useful, and I thought they were wonderful resources that allowed me to refresh my knowledge of Spanish, and learn more from it. María was also my teacher on a few occasions, and she is also a wonderful teacher! I was so surprised to learn that there were many more rules for por and para, and other grammar stuff that they taught me, that I normally wouldn’t have been taught in a traditional American Spanish class. The wealth of knowledge that Martha and María had, and the way they taught it was great, and I’ve been so thankful that I’ve learned and benefitted so much from their teachings.Being a solo traveller, I felt lonely sometimes during my trip in Perú, but I loved that María was always there beside me. I ran into different troubles, but María always listened to me and gave me advice. She helped me navigate, and went walking with me around Arequipa. My favorite memories with María were at the dining room table, where she sat and talked with me. She always made me feel welcome in Arequipa, whether it be in her home or outside, and it let me know that I will forever have a friend in Perú. She also helped me book a tour to Colca Canyon, where I had so much fun! I learned a ton about Spanish and Perú, and was able to fully immerse myself in it. Even after finishing my weeks at the school, María still went out of her way to help me with a problem that I had with a phone company, and spent so much time helping me, and I am forever grateful for that. I feel so much love and respect for María, who is so caring and loving to all students that come to her Spanish school. I will always remember her kindness, and we still keep in touch to this day!In Arequipa, I’ve done so many fun things– I went to Plaza de Armas, Colca Canyon, the mall, took dance classes, ate yummy food, took Spanish classes, got my hair dyed, went horseback riding, walked around the city, but most of all what I cherish the most is how much Spanish I’ve learned in such a short amount of time and the wonderful friendships that I had formed with the dance group, María, and Martha. They made my first time in Perú a memorable experience that I keep very dear in my heart.I highly recommend Spanish Llama Education to everyone of all levels! María is very responsive through texts and emails, and can find what you are looking for and cater the material to your Spanish learning needs. I remember not being able to go the first time, but I still kept in touch with María and attended the school a year later. The staff at Spanish Llama Education will help you every step of the way, and you will come out learning a lot!Thank you so much, María and Martha, for everything! 3
Bart Doolaard: Wow, we had such a great time at this fantastic language school! Me and my girlfriend spent two weeks learning Spanish here. Maria, the owner, is very kind, approachable and attentive to the needs of the students. We enjoyed the atmosphere in the school, it is a homely environment which worked great for us.We were taught by teachers Jimmy and Marta and would highly recommend both, both for their expertise and their sense of humour! We practiced conversations with Manuel who was very kind, funny and did more than his best to learn us his language.In two weeks time we went from basic spanish to a very satisfying intermediate level of spanish. We did not expect to be able to understand and speak this much and are very grateful for the entire experience, all we have learned and the great laughs! Therefore we would highly recommend learning Spanish at this school in Arequipa :)
Caleb Wright: Not only was Llama Education the best way to improve my Spanish rapidly, it is a invaluable experience that has brought me friendships and memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life.I traveled to Peru in January 2021, the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in the US, during my final semester of remote learning at a university in California. I was very anxious about being abroad during the pandemic, however when I arrived in Arequipa at María's home, I soon realized everything would be okay. María worked all day to ensure that we felt safe by disinfecting the house regularly, following public health guidelines inside and outside the house, and helping us navigate Peru's constantly changing COVID regulations. María also accompanied us to a COVID testing site and cleared up confusion with the testing staff so that we could get the necessary tests for our return flight to the US, which I am not sure we could have done on our own. All this is to say that above the language learning and travel experience, María is dedicated to ensuring the safety and well-being of her guests, even during times of unprecedented crisis and hardship such as the pandemic.Now, onward to the experience itself! I stayed in Arequipa with María and her daughter for 6 weeks, taking 20 hours of total Spanish lessons each week. I had taken 4 years of Spanish classes in high school prior, but had not practiced or used the language regularly since then (about A2 level or maybe a little less because of how rusty I was). After the 6 weeks with María and her fantastic teaching staff, I am now studying to take the DELE exam at level B2, which is a HUGE leap. María tailors the learning experience to each student by alternating between grammar instruction and conversational practice with multiple trained instructors. This approach was perfect, as I was able learn the crucial grammar concepts and then immediately apply them in conversational practice in a way that was impossible during my high school classes and self study.Beyond language instruction, my time in Arequipa was filled with adventure and memories. My friends and I made a pact to only speak Spanish for the duration of the trip (which we succeeded in for the most part) which was difficult at first, but after 10 days or so we were able to converse around the house without major difficulty in communicating. We spent many hours around the table eating María's delicious Peruvian meals (Papa a la huancaína, pollo a la brasa, and anticuchos were some of my favorites!) and learning more and more about each other--something I never had done in second language before. It was like my friends and I had been adopted by María and made part of her loving family! She showed us around Arequipa's historical sites (plaza de armas, monasterio de santa catalina) and even woke up at 3:30am with me to go see the sun rise over Misti and the other volcanoes that tower over Arequipa. María used her network of connections to get us a great deal on a private guided trek through Colca Canyon, the most awe inspiring place I have ever visited. After spending the night in a cabin near the the bottom of the canyon and learning Kechua phrases from our guide and his friends by the river water-filled pools, I knew that this was the most special trip I had ever taken.If the message is not already clear, GO NOW! Start making your plans to stay with María and prepare for a one of kind experience that will drastically improve your language skills, stretch your mind, and fill your heart with love of a new place and the incredible people you will meet. For me, Llama Education was the a major step in a lifelong journey of language learning and the beginning friendships that will extend far beyond my stay in Arequipa.Thank you María, Sonja, Martha, and everyone else who made this trip so special!
Leon Aff: I stayed with Maria at Llama Education for three weeks and did the Misti course. Maria was very accommodating and the lessons were very thorough. I tried 2 language schools in Arequipa and this was by far the best one - highly recommended.
Chris Wu: I had the pleasure of spending a week of Peru exploration in the beautiful Arequipa. I went there for its famed culture and food, and while they turned out be amazing, one of my best experience was with the Llama school and my teachers. I was pretty beatup energy wise after traveling all over on the bus for weeks and I had low expectation going into my 4 hours a day one on one classes. But Maria and Lucero did a great job advancing my understanding of the language. Maria who is also the owner, brought tremendous warmth, knowledge and different ways of teaching every morning, and Lucero brought a lot of energy, patience and determination as we drilled the morning knowledge into the mind during the afternoon. I am not the easiest student of the world by any means as I asked a ton of questions all over the place base on all the cultures and grammars I been exposed to over the years in Latin America, incredibly they answered most of it and by the end of week I had a good grasp of all the advanced grammars which I didn’t think was possible unless I had a month or more. And I can definitely feel the difference with my verbal and reading comprehension during the rest of my trip and even now back home socializing with native Spanish speakers. If you want to improve your Spanish in a comfortable, supportive environment and don’t mind a bit of hard work, I strongly recommend Maria and Lucero and Llama school. Cheers and good luck.
willem martens: I had an amazing experience at Llama spanish school. It’s a cozy school with very friendly people. Maria, the owner, really listened to my wishes regarding the things i wanted to learn and even more. Furthermore, i stayed at a host family that they arranged and it was was lovely. It really took the experience of learning Spanish to another level in combination with the private classes I got. If you consider learning Spanish in Arequipa, i would definitely recommend this school!
Francois Girard: I had an amazing experience studying at Llama Spanish School and staying with a local family. Paola’s food was hands down the best I had in 2 months in Peru, and staying with her family was an amazing authentic experience that I will for ever remember. Maria was extremely welcoming at the school and the teaching was highly professional. I already had an advanced level of spanish and still managed to significantly improve in 1 week. I strongly recommend this school in every way.Francois
