COURSE CONTENT:

If you're a complete beginner at Spanish, we recommend that you take Spanish Lessons in Buenos Aires as these will provide an excellent base to learn from. Both private lessons and university courses are well structured and the teachers usually have a high level of English, which makes them ideal for beginners. If you're not a beginner, we'll ensure that you are allocated to the correct level.

PRIVATE LESSONS:
These will be held at a nearby language center with a qualified Spanish teacher. They are monthly courses of 10 hours per week (five two hour lessons) and are individually tailored to your level of expertise. The lessons are usually arranged on a one to one basis where you will receive individual tuition and lessons prepared especially for you. During your course, one lesson each week will be held at a cultural place to enable you to practice you Spanish in real life situations.

At the end of the course, you’ll receive a Certificate issued by the Institute your teacher belongs to, stating that you have done the course, to what level, and the duration in hours of the course you have completed.

These lessons can be taken for a period of one month or more and have no set start and finish dates. Private lessons are recommended if you are a complete beginner and want to spend time learning at your own pace. This is also a great option if you want to combine Spanish lessons with another program, such as teaching.  

SPANISH COURSES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF BUENOS AIRES:
The University of Buenos Aires is divided into various schools, one of which is the schools of Agronomy. This school has set up its own language extension which runs specially designed courses to help foreigners learn Spanish. An excellent element of this course is that it includes visits to museums, theatres and other places of cultural interest, all of which will help you to adapt what you are learning to everyday situations, at the same time as exploring Buenos Aires. There is usually a maximum of  14 students per class with two teachers. The courses can be taken at all levels from beginner to advanced and is an intensive, one month course.

INTENSIVE COURSE:This is a one-month intensive course of 15 hours of lessons per week. You'll attend three hours of classes a day and all classes are in the afternoon. This course covers a total of 60 hours tuition over one month. If you are doing Intensive lessons at the same time as another placement, you'll have quite a busy schedule. This course starts at the beginning of each month - please contact us for exact dates as you will need to arrive a day or two before hand in order to be enrolled.

Travelers will liaise with you regarding which level of course you should take and will make all arrangements accordingly. Spanish lessons at the University are certificated. You will attend lectures at the University, going there and returning daily by bus or Metro, and you’ll live in the same hostel as other volunteers or with a host family, depending on your preferences.

If you want to pack in a lot of learning instead of having a relaxed placement, we can combine your University course with additional lessons from Spanish teachers. Your schedule for all of the courses given above will allow time for studying and also time for sightseeing and absorbing the experience of being in the Argentina culture.

LOCATION, EXPLORING AND SIGHTSEEING:

The romance of Argentina takes one's breath away. From the northern deserts to the southern Andean Cordillera, from Iguazú Falls to the magnificent desolation of Patagonia, Argentina's geography is varied and stunning. Argentina is geared up to thrill - from nights tango-ing in the chic quarter of Buenos Aires to gaucho riding in the grasslands of the Pampas.

Cosmopolitan Buenos Aires:
Buenos Aires is one of the most exciting cities in Latin America. Tango was born here, restaurants serve all manner of world cuisines, bars play the latest music, cafés spill on to the streets and nightclubs allow dancing throughout the night.

  • This fabulous city is renowned for its sophistication and has a surprisingly European feel about it.
  • BA is reminiscent of Paris and its tree-lined avenues and frequent plazas have a beguiling, faded elegance.
  • Downtown, the Plaza de Mayo is the traditional focus of activity.
  • Nearby Avenida 9 de Julio is popularly known as the world's widest thoroughfare and, with its nine lanes of traffic, is truly a pedestrian's nightmare!
  • Avenida Santa Fe is the most fashionable shopping area.
