Institute Alter Ego - Cultural Exchange

The Institute Alter Ego is a language school where lessons are given in several languages (Spanish, English, French, Italian, Quechua). The founder is a Frenchman called Willian, who has launched this project in 2008. Language classes are given in the Institute for anyone who wants to learn a language. The institute collaborates with NGOs (non governmental organization) in the region.

Alter Ego ExchangeThis cooperation consists mainly of giving scholarships to young people who do not have the financial means to learn a language at the institute or any other language school in Cusco. By a scholarship they can still learn a foreign language and thus increase their chances for the future.
