Abigail Levine:"My teacher was wonderfully patient and thoughtful. Her examples and explanations were clear and I feel that my Spanish improved greatly when I was there.We read very interesting short stories and discussed relevant political and social issues. Even though my Spanish was somewhat limited, the content of our discussions was still very engaging. Rita directed our conversations in interesting directions, and I enjoyed not only the Spanish I was learning but also the thoughtful ideas we discussed.
I have no negative comments! I worked hard during the class to focus on the areas I wanted to improve. Though my homework wasn’t always 100% complete (oops!) I got a lot out of the lessons!"
Emily Little:"The salsa classes were great...especially the group classes because I got a chance to hang out with locals and dance. The private Spanish classes are amazing... the teachers cater to exactly what you like to do and what you feel you need to work on. I feel like the classes have helped me tremendously, especially with my speaking, which is exactly what I wanted to improve the most.
Both placements were great!"
Sarah Payne-Baarder: "My placement in Buenos Aires was absolutely the best I could have imagined. I chose to attend Salsa, Tango and Spanish classes for two weeks ... If I did it again I would do it exactly the same way except for twice as long!! A fantastic experience overall and one I will never forget!"
Cosmopolitan Buenos Aires: 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. This fabulous city is renowned for its sophistication and has a surprisingly European feel about it. BA is reminiscent of Paris and its tree-lined avenues and frequent plazas have a beguiling, faded elegance.
Downtown, the Plaza de Mayo is the traditional focus of activity. Nearby Avenida 9 de Julio is popularly known as the world's widest thoroughfare and, with its nine lanes of traffic, is truly a pedestrian's nightmare! Avenida Santa Fe is the most fashionable shopping area.
