The NRCSA Center in Cuzco occupies a large building on one of Cuzco's main avenues, directly in front of the most important site from pre-Colombian Cuzco, the Korikancha (Temple of the Sun). The building houses two full floors with about 15 classrooms, a video room, a full kitchen, an entertainment room and a sundeck.
Capacity is 60 students, and participants are mostly from U.S. and Canada, Holland, and other parts of Europe. 60% Europeans and 40% North Americans. The majority of the students are university age, independent travelers, professionals, and some retirees also.
All teachers have a university degree, and have attended a preparatory course given by the Academia. They have been carefully selected because of their qualifications and experience in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. They refresh their teaching aptitudes, receiving special courses every year from our International Academic Directors in Ecuador & Spain. The teachers are known for their ability to listen, their enthusiasm and patience, but most of all for their love of teaching Spanish to foreign students. Each professor knows how to motivate, develop and support the students' curiosity and interest for the Spanish Language, Peruvian culture and social life. They also know that the learning process continues outside the classroom.
The NRCSA Center in Cuzco is registered with, and recognized by the Peruvian Ministry of Education. Certificates are given to students after completion of study.
