What our students said about Lima

Rating: 5/5


The city is huge and travelling from one place to the other takes a long time due to the absence of an overall public transportation system. But this is what makes Lima an interesting and adventurous choice which I can totally recommend to anyone who loves to explore new places.


Rating: 5/5


I love Lima and have visited and will continue to visit this city in the future.

The teachers were really good and super friendly! I benefited a lot due to their openness and the after class activities with them. They would always stay longer after class if you have any questions.
