FairPlay Spanish School

Founded in 2006 by a Belgian/Peruvian couple, FairPlay is a non-profit Spanish school and volunteer organization with a difference. The organization's aim is to support single Peruvian mothers who have been previously marginalized from society and unable to earn a decent wage. FairPlay trains these single mothers to become Spanish teachers, enabling them to support themselves and their children. All teachers have successfully completed an intensive, seven-month training course. There are six levels of classes and each student is partnered with two teachers, one specializing in grammar, the other in conversational Spanish. All classes are private. A nice touch is that students pay their teachers directly, meaning you know exactly where your money is going. There are two programs: FairSchool, where newer teachers work on an independent basis, and FairAcademy, which employs the best and most experienced teachers and offers students exams and extra teaching at each level. Private Quechua classes are also available.

FairPlay also has a comprehensive and completely free volunteer program, as well as providing salsa classes and social events (including a weekly Tuesday night cooking class taught by the teachers), and homestays are available.

Private classes with FairSchool cost about $6 per hour; private classes with FairAcademy cost about $8 per hour. Students also pay a one-off registration fee of $45, which includes grammar exercise and practice books and use of all services in the school (internet, WIFI, library, videocenter, luggage storage, tea, coffee and water, airport pick-up and weekly cooking classes). Private Quechua classes cost approximately $11 per hour, with a $25 registration fee.

A week in a homestay with a private room and three meals a day costs $80 per week, or $91.60 with a private bathroom.
