Argentina, the largest Hispanophone country is a simply unique location in which to learn Spanish and really is quite unlike anywhere else in South America. In many respects more “European” than “American”, Argentina has been influenced not only by the Spanish, but also the large number of Italian immigrants that arrived in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. A popular saying is that “los argentinos descienden de los barcos” (Argentineans descended from ships), meaning that this is a country based on immigration, much like the United States of America and it is this melting pot of cultures that has led to Argentina’s distinct character.
With an enormously varied climate, students learning Spanish in Argentina can visit temperate rainforests, tropical jungles, mountains, beaches, desert red canyons and awesome waterfalls, so no matter which of our Spanish language schools you choose, Argentina has something special in store for you!
We have schools in Buenos Aires, Bariloche, Cordoba, Mendoza and Ushuaia. In all these locations, you can be sure that you will be taught by fully-qualified, native Spanish-speakers, who are experienced in teaching Spanish as a foreign language to international students. Our courses are all total immersion courses and so will be conducted in Spanish from the outset. As you will be grouped according to your level, of course your teacher will always ensure that the group understands each point before moving on to the next. Your teacher will also tailor the content to meet the requirements of his/her group. There is an overall emphasis on the everyday, practical usage of the language, but you will, of course, cover all aspects in order to improve your overall level.
The beautiful capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires always ranks amongst the most popular of our Spanish locations and offers student a heady mix of culture, vibrant nightlife and exceptional gastronomy! Bariloche is Argentina’s answer to Europe’s Alpine resorts, not only boasting fine skiing, but some of the best chocolate in the Americas. Cordoba is a cultural hub, not only for Argentina, but for Latin America as a whole. Mendoza is most famous for its wine, but also draws in adventure sports enthusiasts. Ushuaia, in Patagonia, is the world’s southernmost city and the gateway to Tierra del Fuego National Park.
