No common phrasebook can prepare you for the uncommon Spanish language and service adventure that awaits in the Peruvian Andes and rainforest of the Amazon. Study this beautiful language in equally beautiful high-altitude surroundings. Spanish is acquired organically as you live and learn amongst locals in idyllic towns. Speak it on the soccer field, on the dance floor, in colorful markets, while volunteering with local children, doing research in the rainforest and everywhere else. Save a few Spanish “oohs” and “ahhs” for the moment you first gaze upon Machu Picchu, the world’s most awe-inspiring archaeological site, and for when you take that first step into the Amazon.

A better school for local children. Improved infrastructure. A cleaner hiking trail. A healthy organic garden. A whole new group of friends. Confidence in a second language. What will you take way from Peru? And more importantly, what will you leave behind?
