Alles hat reibungslos funktioniert, ausserdem waren alle Leute sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Deshalb habe ich mich zu jeder Zeit, sowohl in der Schule, in der Gastfamilie und im Land wohl gefühlt. Die Schule ist super, kümmert sich um die Studenten und deren Lernerfolg.Allerdings fehlt es an einer Bibliothek oder ähnlichem um selbstständig zu lernen. Allerdings dürfen die Klassenräume dazu benutzt werden, sofern sie nicht besetzt sind. Eigenes Kursmaterial der Schule, welches die Kultur und das Leben in Uruguay thematisieren. Somit lernt man nicht nur eine Sprache, sondern man lernt ebenfalls das Land kennen. Die Gastfamilie war super und passte herforragend zu mir. Es wird nie langweillig. 3 Aktivitäten werden pro Woche von der Schule angeboten. Manchmal sind es kleinere Aktivitäten wie eine Lektion zur Aussprache im Spanischen und manchmal sind es Ausflüge die denn ganzen Nachmittag dauern.

Es hatte alles wunderbar geklappt und ich konnte die drei Wochen bestens geniessen. Ich hätte ein zusätzlicher Raum oder eine Bibliothek geschätzt, wo man sich zum Selbststudium zurück ziehen könnte.

Hat alles super gepasst. Das Land Uruguay ist sehr angenehm und perfekt dafür geeignet, um Südamerika initial zu entdecken. Ich habe in 3 Wochen keinen einzigen unfreundlichen Menschen getroffen.Die Akademie ist gut organisiert und stets bemüht, das beste rauszuholen.

Host Family
All host families have been carefully selected by our partner school and live no further than 30 minutes away from the school by using public transport or on foot. This is a unique opportunity to get to know the local culture, the customs and the daily lifestyle while improving your Spanish substantially through constant practice. The families offer single room accommodation with half board or breakfast only and you will share the rest of the house. If available, it is possible to book a room with private bathroom, upon request and at additional charge. Bed linen, towels and free Wi-Fi are at your disposal.

Shared apartment
Staying in a shared apartment allows you independence and contacts with other international students, which will undoubtedly lead you to make new friends! The apartment is conveniently located in the same building as the school and can house up to 6 people. You will enjoy your own single bedroom while sharing the bathroom, living room and kitchen. Double rooms are available upon request. Towels and bed linen are provided, the apartment is cleaned once a week and you will have free Wi-Fi access.

Optional activities are organised twice a week by the school. A member of the team will walk you around the city; take you to local exhibitions, museums, concerts, shows, events and much more. A great opportunity to get insights on history, architecture and culture, with your fellow students! Some activities might require paying an entrance ticket. However, free time is also the chance to enjoy all the city has to offer especially since the school is ideally located downtown! The pedestrian area is full of shops, restaurants, and bars! You can also hit the beach, which is only a short walk from the city centre, or even take a boat for a 2-hour ride to Buenos Aires! And if you happen to be in Montevideo during the carnival, prepare yourself for an unforgettable experience! Options are endless!
