What students liked about Máximo Nivel, Cuzco
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!
My teacher Maria Ines Santisteban is an excellent teacher. She knows both Spanish and English grammar inside out and backwards and she is a wonderful human being.
