Queen of Salsa
I came to Luz dancing salsa like a gringo robot. Luz helped me find my inner latino passion. Now my girlfriend says i dance much better. Thank you Luz for saving my relationship with my Colombiana.
A great start to a long journey in South America!
I immersed myself in the 60 hour program and I’m very happy I did. This allowed me to take my time learning and absorbing the new material. I am very happy with my progress and what I have learned. Luz was a wonderful teacher, she was very attentive and it was obvious she had years of experience teaching, a gifted teacher in both Spanish and salsa!! As a side project Luz and I worked on a yoga sequence in Spanish and that was a lot of fun, now I am ready to teach yoga in Spanish and English as well as continue my journey through South America with a lot more confidence in speaking and understanding the Spanish language!! Muchas muchas gracias Luz and Martin for being amazing teachers!!
Intensive Spanish Week – A Great Experience
My three friends and I undertook an Intensive Spanish week (20 hours) at the Wasi Center.
We all learnt a lot and had a great time while doing it. Luz is a great teacher and explains things very clearly.
We also did the Salsa class and Peruvian Cooking class which was very lively and fun.
Great teacher and local experience
We had 20 hours of intense Spanish lessons over the course of 5 days. This was a bit intense but a good crash course in everything we needed to know to feel more comfortable in the local language. Luz is a great teacher and very accommodating to our changing schedule – thanks again Luz! The homestay was very rustic, really nice family environment with her two children. The room is comfortable but basic – and again Luz was very accommodating in getting a mosquito net set up for us!
We both really enjoyed the experience and feltat home straight away. It was great to be showed around Mancora and introduced to some of her friends. Gracias para todo!
Spanish lessons for a total beginner!
- My partner and I did 2 weeks of Spanish lessons with Luz and Martin. We learnt so much over the 2 weeks and they were very patient with us! I would highly recommend as a beginner learning as much as you can before having the lessons so you can make as much progress as possible. Luz and Martin gave us tips too on where to eat and what to do. We had a surfing lesson which Luz kindly organized for us which we would highly recommend as well being complete beginners! We want to say thank you for everything and welcoming us into your home!
A great 10 days with Luz and Martin and family!
I had such a great 10 days staying with Luz and Martin and their family! Luz was a great teacher and they made lots of effort to include me in things they were doing, like a BBQ in their lovely place outside the town. Totally recommend!
Skype lessons prepared me for my trip
In preparation for my South America trip I bought 15 skype lessons with Luz. Not only did I learn a lot, I had so much fun along the way, all thanks to Luz who is the most energetic and fun teacher I have ever had. Gracias Luz! Xx
A complete peruvian stay
Living with my Peruvian family learning Spanish, salsa and been shown how to cook the famous Peruvian fish dish called ‘Ceviche’. Lots of fun and an interesting experience!!
Clear lessons and nice stay with a peruvian family
I thought your classes where really great. I had been to a Spanish school in Lima but I didn’t learn or enjoy it much. The main reason in their clases there was lack of English support. That was something that I really like in your class when I didn’t understand something you could explain it to me clearly in English. It made learning much more easy and less frustrating. I also liked that the lessons were at your house, it was like doing a home stay without the stay. As a tourist you just seem to go from one hotel to the next, it was nice to see in aPeruvian family home, culturally that was a good expireance. Salsa, cevichie and having a beer with you guys on martins bday all great memories for me in Peru. Your lessons have inspired me enough that I plan to keep learning. Thanks for everything
Perfect adaptation and good progression
I took lessons with Luz for quite a while (June till August). She came to the hotel and that was perfect. I had a lot of fun because I could speak with her and she gave me all the corrections. One tip. Bring a spanish lesson book and a dictionary to the lessons – combine with your mother language. For me it was sometimes difficult to understand everything, because I speak German. The salsa lessons are also a must. we mist the ceviche lessons – but I loved every single lesson with Luz. She is just great. Kisses from Zurich – I Do miss you all.
A full peruvian immersion
Luz definately saved this place from being just a week of parties and same old western lifestyle. I originally came to her for Spanish lessons and instead experienced a side of Mancora normally unaccessable to tourists. Luz and her family between them offer a load of services – Spanish lessons, homestay, salsa, Taekwando and cooking lessons. Its not just like im learning spanish but also part of the big family there (Luz, martin, atzel, and two homestay girls from other countries Bethany and Mar).
A nice way to start dancing practicing spanish
Besides from Spanish lessons, I´ve been working on my salsa dancing. and thanks to Bethany and Mar, Hiphop and Zumba too. I know its biologically impossible but I´ve discovered I have two left feet, just means I have to practice that much harder at the beach nighclubs! » Thanks again Luz
Clases muy divertidas
Yo estudié espanol a la ‘Wasi Center Spanish Center ‘ en Mancora. Mi profesora Luz es muy buena y muy amigable. Ella es trabajadora y facil. La clases de Espanol son muy interesante y divertida. Yo recomendo Atiywasi Spanish School. Muchas gracias Luz.
Super experience in Mancora
I decided to stay at Wasi Center with Luz,Martin and baby Atzel,before i arrived I was very nervous,but as soon as I met them,that disappeared.They made me feel extremely welcome and part of the family. They are fantastic people and over the course of the 9 days that i spent with them,I experienced alot of the Peruivan way of life,while improving my Spanish. Luz and Martin were very helpful and understanding and fun!!not only did I improve my Spanish with them but I learnt how to cook ceviche,did fitness mornings with Luz,salsa and went to taekwondo competitions. also as Luz knew I worked with horses at home she contacted her friend who has horses so I was able to go and meet up with her and her horses aswell. I enjoyed every minute with this busy, hard-working and endearing family.I would highly recommend them as a home-stay as you wont forget your experience or them. If i’m in Mancora again I will most definitely be visiting! cuidate amigos Luz,Martin and Atzel xxx Grace Sheehy ( Clonakilty, Ireland)
