Lima is a good place to study Spanish and other subjects. This cosmopolitan city, located in the very center of the country's coast, offers a wealth of things to see and do to keep you occupied while boning up on language, dance and surfing skills. Some language schools are privately run, whereas others are associated with universities. Many also offer volunteer opportunities or courses in other topics like salsa dancing. At some institutions, students may take the DELE, an internationally recognized examination measuring Spanish proficiency.
