Overview

Soak up the one-of-a-kind culture in the “Paris of South America.”

Get the best of both continents in one of the world’s most beloved cities. What better place to perfect the Spanish language? Vibrant. Creative. Intellectual. Intense. These are some of the words used to describe Buenos Aires. There’s no shortage of cultural riches to discover. Go to the theater. Dance the tango. Watch a heated football match. Feast on provoleta (fried cheese) and some of the best steak on the planet. Discover graffiti art off the beaten track. Morning language classes are followed by afternoon field trips, meetups with native-speaking peers, or hanging in the city’s bustling cafés. Urban culture is a big component of this program, and you’ll visit with working artists and a diverse cross section of local citizens. On teacher-led outings you’ll get a rare insider’s feel for the multicultural identity of Buenos Aires through its food, street art and the stories of its people. Along the way you’ll produce a blog with images and texts to create a lasting narrative of your unique experience – later to be shared virtually and in different settings. Living with a host family, you’ll quickly get acclimated to the rhythms of Argentinean life. Late afternoon/early evening is time for merienda, a social break with coffee and cakes. Dinnertime, ranging from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m., is for the “strong meal” of meats, pastas, cheese, vegetables and fruits. As part of the family, you’ll help prepare meals and enjoy them over conversation about your day.
