Mama Africa

I have a part-time gig teaching English at the ICPNA here in Cusco. My students are really great and it’s been a lot of fun so far. I try to use real life examples while I teach, and because Cusco is such a popular travel destination I often refer to some of the tourist places downtown.

My favorite reference is Mama Africa, a popular disco at the Plaza de Armas in Cusco, Peru. So here’s a picture of Patricia and I at Mama Africa!

  1. The best thing about study in ICPNA is when you test what they have learned all the time studied in ICPNA with your teacher, or when you apply your english in touristical how Cusco with gringos as soon as you think that you can speak english because this laguage allow make alot of friend with natal and foreign people these more interesting that Peru have and I like to be in constant comunication in order to develop our intelligence.
    It’s good have known to all what I have learned, and i remenber when you talk Mamafrica and I think how is it because I never visit it but I like to go it. I usually go to PEPEZETA, MUKY BUT I TRY TO GO TO MAMAFRICA WITH MY FRIENDS and may be we meet for spend unforgettable moments.
    See you soon teacher Walbert.
    I wish good luck for the future with your family.

  8. That is cool, you are teaching english. I am learnign english in middle east but online. Real live example is the best way to learn. I learn in a virtual city so I can go to a hotel and book a room. I dont need to pretend or look in a book.
