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. This is also a great option if you want to combine Spanish lessons with another programme, such as teaching.  

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 intensive course is 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.

FOOD: Food is not included in your placement, but breakfast is included. 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!

Accommodation on voluntary projects in BuenosAires in Argentina

The romance of Argentina takes one's breath away. Argentina is geared up to thrill - from nights tango-ing in the chic quarter of Buenos Aires to gaucho riding in the grasslands of the Pampas. Buenos Aires is one of the most exciting cities in Latin America. Tango was born here, restaurants serve all manner of world cuisines, bars play the latest music, cafés spill on to the streets and nightclubs allow dancing throughout the night.

  • Buenos Aires is renowned for its sophistication and its surprisingly European feel. It is reminiscent of Paris and its tree-lined avenues and frequent plazas are elegant and beautiful.
  • Downtown, the Plaza de Mayo is the traditional focus of activity.
  • Nearby Avenida 9 de Julio is the world's widest thoroughfare with nine lanes of traffic - a pedestrian's nightmare!
  • Avenida Santa Fe is the most fashionable shopping area.


While on your placements, you can also book some Optional Add-Ons to make the most of your Travel Experience. Very popular choices are Spanish Courses and Dance Courses.


  • 1-Week Intensive Course with private lessons (10 hours), prior to starting your Main Project: Includes all your food and accommodation.
    Price: £475

  • Weekly Lessons: 10 hours of lessons per week running concurrent with your main project:
    Price: £175 per week

Lessons will be individually tailored to your requirements with a private teacher on a one-to-one basis. For group lessons, you'll be in a class with other students. At the end of the course, you'll receive a certificate.


  • Tango Course (5 private lessons of 1 hour each per week) running concurrently with your project:
    Price: £175 per week

Tango is a social dance of control and surrender, of fancy suits and stilettos, and embodies all of life's richness. It is a celebration of the human spirit. You'll also find in Buenos Aires that there are many opportunities to attend a Milonga (where people from all over come and dance together.)


  • Salsa Course (5 private lessons of 1 hour each per week) running concurrently with your project:
    Price: £175 per week

Salsa is a distillation of many Latin and Afro-Caribbean dances and was developed further in New York to the New York Style. Since Salsa has its roots in so many dances and is open to improvisation, Salsa styles are very fluid.


  • 6 hours of lessons per week:
    Price: £245 for two weeks

Study photography with an experienced private tutor who will tailor your lessons to your individual needs. This course is for everyone, from beginner to advanced level. Classes include practical teaching, analysis of your work, theory and history.
