OUR online SCHOOL
OUR online SCHOOL
Our Spanish online program was originally created in 2013 by Peruwayna Spanish School as a way to continue offering Spanish lessons to it's former students once they finished with their Spanish Immersion Programs in Lima, Peru. Later on, our Spanish Online program became an independent organization in order to extend this service to anyone looking to Learn Spanish Online. Today, our Online School and our Spanish School in Lima, Peru, work closely together as sister organizations to keep improving our programs and to make sure we offer the best possible learning experience to all our students.
Our Spanish School in Lima, Peru, began as a small group of teachers who saw an opportunity to build a school truly dedicated to personalized teaching as part of a fun community. Today, the commitment and love for what we do has helped us become one of the most prestigious Spanish language schools in Latin America while maintaining our tight-knit community. Our diverse and talented students have continually inspired us to invent new learning solutions, such as our new Spanish Online Platform, and to create one of the only textbooks specifically designed for immersion programs in Latin America.
