Lima and Surroundings
Lima is the capital of Peru and is home to some 8.5 million people. It’s a varied mixture of poorer areas and crumbling buildings, with grand, Spanish colonial architecture in between. The city is renowned for its energetic nightlife, restaurant scene and shopping. The Miraflores district, where the teacher training centre is located, is filled with everything from luxury outlets, to handmade crafts and cheap market stalls.
The Spanish influence on Lima is evident; the accent in Lima is well-spoken and clear (for anyone who wants to brush up on the language!), and the city is dotted with beautiful and colourful colonial buildings.
Lima is widely known as the gastronomical capital of Peru, attracting travellers and foodies from around the world, looking to savour its famous cuisine.
Peru, itself, has experienced profound levels of economic growth in recent years, all the while maintaining its low cost of living. As the economy has grown, so has the hunger for learning English, making it a country that is overflowing with English teaching opportunities.
Peru is home to one of the world’s most famous archaeological 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 archaeological mysteries of the Incas, high in the Andes Mountains.
Most tourists only devote one week to exploring this gorgeous country, but TEFL professionals will immerse themselves in the Peruvian way of life, which is just as diverse in its history and culture as it is in its geography.
