About The NRCSA Center

The NRCSA Center in Cuzco was founded in 1995 and offers the exceptional opportunity to study Spanish while immersed in Peruvian culture. Other activities such as Quechua language courses, workshops on Latin American Culture, and daily student activities, make it a distinctive educational destination near the former capital of the majestic Inca Empire. Whether a complete beginner or an advanced speaker, a recent student or returning to study, students can receive customized programs at the level and pace especially suited to each individual's personal goals.

All teachers are native speakers, and participate in continuing education throughout their employment to advance their knowledge and skills of teaching Spanish and Quechua as foreign languages. The instructors are committed to giving students the richest possible experience of Peruvian culture and customs and have proficiency in at least one other foreign language, either English, German or French.

Classes are held throughout the year in our warm and friendly center. Small group and individual classes are available for all levels.


About Cuzco

The institute is located in Cuzco, cultural heart of the Peruvian Andes. Cuzco is situated at 3.400 meter above sea level, surrounded by mountains and valleys. It has a population of 300,000 inhabitants - most of them indigenous - and has much beauty to offer: the panorama of the Andes, famous Inca ruins and the magical town of Machu Picchu.

Everyone who visits Peru inevitably comes to Cuzco, one of the most fascinating cities in the world. The city is founded around 1100 AD. According to the Inca creation myth, the sun sent his son, Manco Capac, and the Moon her daughter, Mama Occlo, to spread culture through the barbaric lands. They emerged from the waters of Lake Titicaca and began their journey in search of the place where they would found their kingdom. When they reached the site of present-day Cuzco, Manco plunged his golden staff into the ground in order to test its suitability and it sank deep into the fertile soil. This was the sign they were looking for. They named this place Cuzco, meaning "the navel of the world'.
