Activities

Cusco Vibes offers two types of activities:

a) Language Exchange Night

b) 1-1 Ultimate Cultural Exchange

Language Exchange Night


On a bi-monthly basis we hold a language exchange night where members and non-members can meet and participate in language conversation in Spanish and English. The language exchange night lasts two hours and is made up of six sessions. Each session lasts 20 minutes with the first 10 minutes being dedicated to English practice and the second 10 minutes to Spanish practice. At the end of each session, participants change tables to meet and converse with a new partner. All sessions come with questions and cater for basic, intermediate and advance levels.

1-1 Ultimate Cultural Exchange


The 1-1 Ultimate Cultural Exchange are activities that are personally organized between a Spanish native speaker with an English, German or French native speaker. Using the results from the intake session, you will be matched with someone who has similar interests, hobbies and likes ensuring that you have a fun, engaging and dynamic experience.



Why 1-1?

We believe that 1-1 is the ultimate way to really improve your language skills and make memorable human connections. Our activities allow you to take a step outside of the classroom, and embark on an adventure to locations around Cusco that are unique and special. Each activity is designed according to your interests, language needs and personal requests. The activity has time dedicated solely to your language learning where you can focus on enhancing your conversation, listening, pronunciation, interpretation and written skills.


All of our activities are well organized and include: ice breaker questions; language exercises and/or role play and a quiz that is designed to improve your language skills and better your knowledge and understanding on the location you are visiting.



With 8 themes to choose from, we have a number of dynamic activities that you can participate in:


  • Bars and music
  • Culture and history
