Learn Spanish in Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires is one of the most sophisticated cities in Latin America, renown for its nightlife and cultural activities. It is also called the "Paris of the South", strongly influenced by European culture while retaining Latin charm. With its countless bars and cafes, bustling streets and nocturnal population, Buenos Aires is a place of infinite movement. It seems hard to find another city in Latin America with so much passion and excitement.
Since Buenos Aires remains largely undiscovered by most tourists, you will quickly be embraced by locals (porteños) happy to meet foreigners. With high standards of living, very low crime rates and a relatively small tourist crowd, our students have found Buenos Aires to be an ideal place for learning Spanish.
Whether sitting at an outdoor cafe watching the beautiful porteños, dancing Salsa until morning, playing soccer in the parks, or watching a world famous Tango show, cosmopolitan Buenos Aires provides entertainment for everyone.
The city is quite large (three million residents), however it is very walker-friendly and public transportation (metro and buses) offers fast and efficient movement between all of the traditional neighborhoods.
Despite the energy supplied by the porteños and the nightlife, Buenos Aires is a remarkably safe city at all hours and students will feel comfortable in our neighborhood. Standards of living are high and drinking the local tap water presents no problems.
South of Buenos Aires lie many beaches, including the famous resorts of Mar Del Plata (140 km from BA). All of Argentina's tourist locations are easily accessible from Buenos Aires, by economical domestic flights, by rail and by bus.
Buenos Aires is the travel hub of Argentina. Domestic flights can take you north to Iguazzu Falls, south to Patagonia, or west to the Andes mountains. A short ferry ride will get you to Uruguay and its famous beach resort, Punta Del Este. Buenos Aires has many cinemas and theatres. The Teatro Colón (Colón Opera House), a monumental coliseum of extraordinary acoustics, hosts international concerts, opera and ballet. At night you can see tango shows in different places.
