SPanish Learning

Ceica Peru Spanish School has the Spanish course you need because all our courses are  tailor-made to suit the ability and needs of our students.


We offer a flexible study plan, taking into account the needs of the students. The students decide when they will start their course, the number of hours to study (at least 10 hours per week) and the duration of the course.


Lessons are 55 minutes long and are held from Monday to Friday. Lessons during the weekend are also possible, but we will determine the appropriate time. 

If you're interested in taking things further, we also offer a number of supplementary courses. Prices depend on the number of students attending:

  • What do you recommend, group or one on one lessons?"
    We always recommend one to one lessons, because your teacher will focus on your specific needs and you can reach your personal goals. In groups normally some students progress faster than others which causes frustration in both the less able, who feel left behind, and more able students, who become impatient. On the other hand, group lessons are great for friends that come together and support each other in learning Spanish.
  • What are the class schedules?
    The normal schedule is from Monday to Friday from 8.30 to 12.30 or from 9:00 to 01:00 during the rainy season. For students who want flexible schedules, the lessons are in the afternoon starting at 1:00 p.m. Also, for students who request it, we can arrange classes weekends.
  • Are group lessons available?
    Sometimes we have group lessons, for students that come together, or who speak the same language and have the same level in Spanish. Group lessons are for beginners to intermediate. For advance students we only offer one to one lessons.
  • What if I don't speak any Spanish?
    Don`t worry. We usually have students that have never had contact with Spanish before, our texts books are designed for complete beginners and our teachers have lot of experience in teaching complete beginners.
  • If I'm a complete beginner, what can I learn in one week?"
    The articles, the verb to be, the most used adverbs, adjectives and nouns in Spanish, how to ask questions, how to answer them, useful information for buying tickets, booking hostels, buying clothes, etc. In terms of grammar your will learn the present tense, present perfect and going to. In short a survival course which is enough for travelling around
  • How much time do I need to become fluent in Spanish?
    This depends on the effort that a student invests in learning Spanish. Our experience shows that a person who does not speak any Spanish, with a 40-hour course can manage basic communication in Spanish, for example he or she will be able to buy things and to request basic information in Spanish. To become fluent maybe you need to study at least 6 months if you don´t have any knowledge of the language.
  • Do the teachers give homework?
    Yes - they always give you homework or they request you to review what you have studied that day. It is important that you do this, so you can progress faster and the teacher can teach you more.
  • What languages do your teachers speak?
    Most of them speak English, some of them German and French. Bilingual teachers are available for beginners and basic levels, but for intermediate to advanced students only Spanish is used. In any case most of the class will be in Spanish from the beginning.
  • Do your teachers have university degrees?
    Yes, our teachers have University Degrees, most of them in Education and some in Language and Linguistics. Some of them have a Diploma in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language.
  • Do I work with only one teacher for 4 hours?
    No, usually when students take 4 or more hours per day, they work with two different teachers, changing after two hours. You will you keep the same teachers for the whole course unless you request a change.
  • Do I need to bring any study materials with me?
    The school will provide all your study materials, but if you could bring a good dictionary, a notebook and a pen.
  • Is there a minimum or maximum age for enrollment?
    No - students of all ages are welcome. We have had students from 3 to 75 years old.
  • Can I change my program after enrollment?
    This depends on the kind of change. For example, if you wish to take more hours we can usually arrange that. However, if you wish to reduce your number of hours, you will only be able to do this after the first week, because teachers’ schedules are planned for the whole week bearing in mind your booking.
  • Can I study for a few weeks, then take a break, and then continue for another couple of weeks?"
    Yes, this is possible, but when you return you might not have the same teachers, you will work with the teachers that are available at the moment.
  • When can I start my course?
    You can start one to one Spanish lessons any day of the week, not necessarily on a Monday, but you should book in advance to ensure that teachers are available.
  • Do your teachers work on public holidays?
    Yes, but we don’t work at Christmas and New Year. If you miss lessons because of these holidays we will reschedule them.
