Location Overview

Peru is home to one of the world’s most famous archeological wonders, Machu Picchu. It’s a nation rich in ancient history, mountains, jungles, deserts and thousands of miles of Pacific coastline. Some people come for the world-class surfing. Others for Lima’s succulent cuisine. And yet others come to drink in the spiritual and archeological mysteries of the Incas, high in the Andes Mountains.

Lima, Peru’s capital is at the center of it all with a bustling populace of 8.5 million people. Here, you’ll find the richest of the rich living side by side with the poorest of the poor – from crumbling buildings and poverty-stricken barrios, to ornate Spanish colonial buildings and pre-colonial ruins, to opulent golf courses and lavish malls.
Lima’s shopping, restaurants, theatres and energetic nightlife will impress you. If you want to dance salsa, reggae, hop-hip, or the latest club music, you’ll find it here. The boutiques of Miraflores and the ultra-modern Jockey Plaza mall provide endless opportunities to shop-till-you-drop for luxurious brands, rustic Andean crafts, books, handcrafted jewelry and more.

As a focal point for Spanish colonial conquest, the Spanish spoken in Peru is very clear, making Lima an ideal choice for anyone looking to hone their Spanish language skills while soaking up the beaches, tasty restaurants and sun. Spain also left behind numerous examples of colorful and sprawling colonial architecture, providing the perfect backdrop for learning one of the world’s most widely spoken languages.

But if you ask Peruvians what they love most about Lima, they’ll rattle off an exhaustive list of gourmet restaurants that will leave your mouth watering in expectation. Lima’s reputation as the Gastronomical Capital of Latin America is definitely a source of pride. In fact, savvy foodies and travellers come from all over the world just to sample Lima’s 5-star cuisine. And if it’s summertime, they’ll tell you to go directly to the beach for a tangy pisco sour and a succulent dish of ceviche, which is always best when served with ample amounts of sunshine and the sounds of seagulls and crashing waves.

Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre

It took me a very long time to decide to take the CELTA course at Int'l House. Looking back now, I'm very pleased with my decision. Although it was hard work, I learned a lot about the Cambridge methodology and myself. I have much greater understanding of how and why. The tutors were amazingly proficient and the staff at Int'l House ensured our needs were met and that the facility maintained the highest standards.

, CELTA student,

Amazing introductory experience in teaching english asl.

, CELTA student,

The course was amazing. I learnt a lot from my tutors and I feel my expertise as an English teacher has improved a lot. Nevertheless, taking into account the amount of money paid, I expected better facilities and resources. I consider that the venue could be improved with better internet facilities, a library with the latest ELT methodology books, and bigger classrooms; or eventually changed. For the rest, the tutors made the best to make the available facilities work to our benefit.

I learnt I bunch of things.

, CELTA student,

I really didn't expect the course to be as enjoyable as it was. It was hard work but the instructors were very helpful and experienced and they quickly identified my weaknesses and helped me to be honest with myself and identify these for myself and then they educated me on how to improve these. I am happy to say that because of the CELTA course I now enjoy my work even more and I feel that I can offer my students a much better service.

, CELTA student,

Some of what we learned was very useful; and watching the other teachers gave me some ideas that could be useful in my classes.
