PERU Lima & Cuzco
Lima is a wonderful place to live and study. USIL professors are excellent and the campus offers many opportunities to learn Spanish and engage with the local community. The KEI Program Manager and Onsite Director are amazing. The orientation was very thorough and helpful. The KEI Director is a kind person who knows the city and available when needed. Thank you.
