The school has a branch in the south, in Bariloche, a ski resort in the Andes. You can also learn Spanish in Argentina, on an estancia, an estate with horse breeding on the Pampas. Meals, hikes, wine tastings and horseback riding are included. Ask us about this option if you are interested.
We work with a well known, big school. You can choose between four hours of private- or group lessons per day (one class hour = 52 minutes). The groups are never bigger than 6 students. The group course is held in the morning or in the afternoon, 9 am-1 pm or 2 pm-6 pm. Private classes are held from 2 pm-6pm. The school is located in the center of Buenos Aires on a tree lined boulevard. The photo depicts the imposing building the school is located in, on the 3rd floor. There is a big communal area with coffee bar and wifi. It is a colonial building and the different class rooms have big windows with views over the Plaza del Congreso. A few blocks away there is a park where you can study or have chat with the locals.
If you want to learn Spanish in Argentina you will be pleased by the schools’ activities. They offer several cultural activities for free on weekdays. Activities like cooking classes, tango lessons, museum visits and strolls through different districts of the city. On Monday they usually have the city walk, each week a different area of Buenos Aires is chosen. On two afternoons the activity includes something to do with the Spanish language, the so called ´club de conversacion´ or tutorial. In the weekend you can also join multiple day activities for a fee. For example to the Iguazu waterfalls. You can also go to a tango show with diner and drinks or go to the estancia for a day.
The Spanish spoken in Argentina, the Castellano, differs a bit from the rest of Latin-America in its pronunciation. The ´ll´and ´y´, for example, are pronounced as ´ssj´. As a result more soft, melodious sounds. Beautiful Spanish!
There are several options for accommodation in Buenos Aires. Please note: the accommodation always starts on the Sunday before the classes. If you arrive earlier you can always book extra nights for the accommodation of your choice.
The cheapest accommodation option is a bed in a room for two people in a student flat. In this flats they have mostly students that study on the university.
