Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
I had a great teacher. All the staff was trying to help with any questions all the time. I felt very comfortable. Also nice that you get free tea and coffee all day. It is just getting a bit too noisy from the classes in the afternoon.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Go hiking in the mountains directly from Cusco. You don’t need to book trips far away. It’s only a 15 minutes walk up and you will find breathtaking and pure nature.
Other comments:
I would definitely book Maximo again!

The Spanish lessons were good. I really enjoyed the instructors and the methods they used for teaching.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Students should be aware that Cusco is very, very cold at night and that there is no indoor heating whatsoever.
Other comments:
Staying with Patricia is horrible. Students should try not to be placed in her home. While Patricia is kind and good hearted, staying with her is uncomfortable at best. No breakfast is served, not even coffee. The food she serves for dinner and lunch is usually rice and sauces with no fresh fruits or veg. Dinner was always late by at least an hour, and many times she didn't serve us until 9 pm. Also, her home is about a 45-minute bus ride from the school. If I were to return to Maximo, I would make sure to request a different accommodation.

Other comments:
I have paid 4 weeks accommodation ... a week has 7 nights that would be 28 nights. However, only 27 nights were paid to my host family and I therefore had to move out a day earlier. My suggestion would be to indicate the accommodation reservation in days on the bill and not in weeks. This would dismiss any errors. I have paid the same amount for 7 nights as for 6 nights. So I want the 7th Day of my last week refunded.

Other comments:
Very modest accommodations. The family rented rooms have five other people in most English-speaking, so instead of Spanish language daily was very often in English. No independent bathroom was a surprise to me. Actually it was more like a shared apartment, plus meals prepared by the family.

The only unpleasant side effect was the arrogance and ignorance of many of the participating American students.
