The more students fully immerse themselves into the language by practicing both their speaking and listening in real-life situations, the faster they will develop confidence in their new language skills.

  • A program of activities every day during the week 
  • Occasional class excursions to locations around Buenos Aires such as traditional bars, museums and historic sights that complement class material

  • Regular homework to ensure that students are practicing and using new grammar and vocabulary 
Students will find that the the only way to maximize learning development during their time in Buenos Aires is by speaking to classmates and homestay families as much as possible as well as by reading and listening to materials of interest, such as newspapers and radio programs.
