Heard IBERO is a good one - anyone heard of it/studied there?

Any others worth checking out?

Haven't heard of IBERO.

I did a 4 day intro course at Espanol Andando and it was really good, besides being one of the most affordable ones in th market!

Their website is

Good luck!

Thanks - I had a look at the site.

Did you actually learn much Spanish in 4 days? I was hoping to do about 3 weeks study. I guess I could combine this with another course...

How much did it cost you?

As a matter of fact I did, but It really depends on what you are looking for.
This course is presented as a "survival Spanish crash course" and works on conversation and communication skills.
For me, as a backpacker, was way better than spending long hours inside a classroom memorizing verbs conjugations (I loved the fact that classes are held out in the streets, facing you with real life exprinces) but If what you are looking for is mastering the language I'm not sure this is the right course for you.Maybe to start with, but you will obviously need to continue with your studies afterwards!
Again, in my case, I had taken a few classes in the past, but before Andando I wasn't able to put a full sentence together. It's really a great introduction to the language and Culture of the city.
As a matter of fact, the last two days of the course I did private tuition in the morning for the grammar and formal content and Andando in the afternoons for conversation practise.
Its also very cheap...I belive one of the cheapest options in the city at $120 pesos for the four session!

Thanks that's all good stuff.

I am travelling too, the whole reason I wanted to learn Spanish first was to help me get around for the rest of my trip - also not so interested in learning written grammar, etc, just want enough to get by. I think I might do that course, then get some private conversational tuition as well. Problem is, I had set aside 3 weeks to learn in BA!
Does the course help you out with accom too?
Sorry for all the questions!

I don't think they do. They did advice me on hostels and flats, I ended up staying at Hostel Clan and its actually really nice.

The teacher mentioned a couple of agencies that rent out flats for $100/200 a week too.

I think that it's a good idea to maybe do Andando on your first have a first glance of it all and then go on with private classes, to make sure you work on what you feel you need to work on the most.
