  • Description

    Description

    We are a private English school located in the city of Quillabamba, 5 hours north of Cusco
    and only about 2 hours north of Machu Picchu. We need volunteers to teach English to classes of all ages.
    There are no other English schools in the area so we provide a needed service to the people of Quillabamba.
    The ability to speak English will allow the children and adults of Quillabamba to participate in the growing tourist economy, and ultimately provide for their families better than they could otherwise. To provide a more stable environment for learning, we can only accept volunteers who are able to stay 1 month or more.

    WHAT ELSE
    Quillabamba (known as The City of Eternal Summer for its perfect tropical weather) is a beautiful community, filled with friendly people. You will have the chance to meet locals who may invite you to go on hikes to some of the dozens of waterfalls in the area, go swimming in one of the 5 pools in town, enjoy the weekend festivities, go shopping at one of the twice-weekly farmers markets, take a weekend trip to Machu Picchu or the natural hot springs of Santa Teresa, or sample some of the coffee and chocolate that Quillabamba is famous for. The town is surrounded by small family farms where they grow oranges, bananas, tomatos, avocados, pineapples, mangos, coconuts, papayas, cacao, coffee, and much much more. All of these are sold at markets in town at affordable prices (for example, it is possible to get 5 bananas for 1 sol, the equivalent of 30 United States cents).

    While we do not require that the volunteers speak spanish, it is recommended to know some basic Spanish in order to communicate more easily with your students. In addition to Spanish classes, you have the opportunity for a full Peruvian immersion which is great for those looking to learn or improve Spanish as well as those people who are looking for a cultural exchange.
