Wasi Center is a language school specializing in Spanish language classes combined with a homestay. Based in Mancora, our experience in teaching Spanish started with Luz - one of our founders - in 2005. She met Martin in 2008 and then they decided to establish a center that focuses on Peruvian cultural immersion. We operate in Luz and Martin’s house, which is Wasi in Quechua, making us House Center in English.
We provide students plenty of opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of Peruvian lifestyle and culture through Spanish lessons integrated with cultural activities, such as Salsa, cooking, and volunteering. They immerse completely into local way of living by staying with a local host family, whom they share meals with and communicate in Spanish. They also participate in trips outside the center, such as to beaches where they can swim with turtles and other marine creatures.
