"The course took place in an old but perfectly functional environment. Mainly because of the friendly and competent support provided by the teachers and especially by Milva in reception, this has been a very enjoyable and successful experience.
We started at level zero. These two weeks have been tough, and at first rocky, but now we feel more sure. The foundation stones have been laid.
Unfortunately we had very little time to explore the city and surrounding area because of the time we spent learning, so we have to come back again.”
"In my opinion, this is the best Spanish school in Buenos Aires. It was by no means easy for me to find a course that would allow me to learn the language fully in just two weeks and make me certain that I want to live and work here.
The teachers are well trained, able to exploit the material very well and adjust the teaching methods to suit the different students. The groups consist of between 3 and 9 people from different countries. It's great to meet new people and then to experience the new culture during the leisure activities and free time.
In terms of my language, you have prepared me perfectly for my new life. Fantastic teachers, a great team and a good location. Simply the best! "
"I came to this school after spending some time in Buenos Aires. I had a very good level of Spanish, but I lacked confidence in many areas. The school placed me in a course of precisely the right level and I learned exactly what I needed. I lived with an Argentinian family and began noticing my progress after only one week.
In addition, there is a great atmosphere in the school, everybody is always helpful, and the activities that the school offers are well worth recommending."
"Hola Chicos! I took a standard course in Buenos Aires for two weeks and stayed with a host family. I had a great time and managed to successfully brush up my Spanish. Both the school and the entire staff were great. I definitely recommend staying with a host family because you get an insight into the lives of Portenos and can "speak Spanish" at the same time. Coming to Buenos Aires itself and studying at Expanish are definitely worthwhile and I highly recommend spending at least 4 weeks here. Mucho divertido!!! "
Our language school in Argentina has a wide range of Spanish language courses for students over 16.
