I am traveling around South America at the moment. Soon I will be in Buenos Aires and I think it would be really useful to do a Spanish course, can anyone recommend any good ones? I plan to be in BA for about a week, so a weeks worth of lessons is all Iḿ after. I will probably stay at the Millhouse hostel as lots of people have recommended it, if anyone can recommend good lessons near there (or anywhere in BA), please let me know!x
Check out the website for AmeriSpan. Rates for one week of immersion Spanish lessons, with homestay or just lodgings, are below. Homestay includes meals. Or you could stay in the hostel and pay the lower rate.
I looked up the rates for a school in Central Buenos Aires. I have not been to Argentina, yet, but I used AmeriSpan in Guatemala and had a great experience. It is a large and well-known organization.
4 hrs/day Group w/homestay $520
4 hrs/day Group w/residence, shared room $390
4 hrs/day Group classes only $260
Buen viaje y buena suerte !
Hi, apols if this is a bit late, but i am leaving Buenos Aires in two weeks, and i noticed your post was about Spanish schools in South America. Buenos Aires has loooads and i mean loads. I would recommend hunting around and checking out the reviews on different review sites.
Some options i WOULD recommmend (having hung out with a load of gringos my entire time, we talked a lot about the school
- Ecela http://www.eccela.com/ - One of the bigger ones (and i think one of the oldest), i heard the lessons where good and the building nice
- Expanish - Again, one of the bigger ones.
- Inter words - Much smaller school (in case you want a bit of intimacy!!), but apparently good with nice teachers and located in Palermo, which has all the cool shops and restaurants in buenos aires
One school i heard bad things about was Ibero, i would avoid them. They are uber cheap but accodring to my friends the general service and teaching is bad, and the teachers are always changing.
Hope that helps you. Let me know if you need any more advice
