Yes, I recommend this program

A good experience

I attended ECELA's Cusco school for six weeks in 2013. It was an amazing experience! When I arrived, I was the only student and the woman who owned the apartments I was staying at invited me to spend time with her family while I was alone. Soon after, though, a large group of medical Spanish students arrived and we had a lot of fun together.

The school is in a reasonable neighborhood and the instructors were friendly and knowledgeable. I took advanced classes and the dialect was rather straightforward; the accent there is not strong. Each week, the school organizes fun activities you can choose to participate in, including trips to other parts of the country. Meanwhile, I had plenty of time to explore the rest of the area, including Machu Picchu! I also visited many museums, went to an endangered animal sanctuary, went on horseback to some beautiful ruins, and went paragliding (with paragliding being on my own, not through ECELA).

I was not prepared for the Peruvian weather in May. Homes there are not heated, nor did our shower's water heater work well at all. I was very cold the entire time. However, the apartment was otherwise comfortable.

What would you improve about this program?
They could let people know what to expect from the housing. Depending on the time of year, anyways, make sure you bundle up!
