Type: Teaching & Education,
Watch your Spanish improve while you live locally and absorb the flavour of Argentina. You can study Spanish on a structured course at the University of Buenos Aires or with private tutors who will tailor your lessons to your individual needs. Private lessons have no set start and finish dates and recommended if you're a complete beginner. University of Buenos Aires courses are one-month intensive courses of 15 hours per week, three hours of classes a day.
These will be held at a nearby language centre with a qualified Spanish teacher. They are monthly courses of 10 hours per week (five 2-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. Also a great option if you want to combine Spanish with another programme.
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.
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.
We'll 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.
You'll live a hostel situated in a beautifully renovated historic building in Downtown Buenos Aires, very conveniently located for exploring the city and doing shopping. It's big enough to be sociable and fun, yet small enough to feel at home; a real chance to immerse yourself in Argentine culture.
You'll share a dorm room and have access to kitchen facilities. The hostel has several amenities, like internet and WiFi, a common area, DVD room, library, book exchange and a housekeeping service.
FOOD: You’ll be given an allowance for breakfast and dinner (not lunch). This arrangement is to give you the flexibility to sample the great Argentinean food. Right on the door step of the hostel there are many cafes and restaurants with great priced menus just waiting for you….the choice is yours!
