Housed on one floor of a stately historic building which has been entirely refurbished, our partner school is located in the heart of the Argentinian capital, just steps from the iconic Plaza de Mayo and the Obelisco. 13 bright, hi-tech classrooms, a multipurpose room (for film, lectures, dance classes, etc.), a student lounge, two study rooms and a coffee/tea/mate area are perfect for meeting the other students and speaking Spanish. The school provides an assistance service for students. It's located in a pleasant pedestrian area lined with cafés, restaurants and shops. The nearest subway station is 100 metres away and both the waterfront Puerto Madero neighbourhood and the traditional San Telmo neighbourhood are within walking distance.

Cette école est géniale!L'école est situé rue 25 de Mayo, dans le microcentre, à quelques minutes de la Casa Rosada ou du Café Tortoni. Autour de l'école se trouve des rues majoritairement piétonnes où l'on peut trouver des tas de cafés, de restaurants, et de cantines au poids pour les veggies et non-veggies, à emporter ou non.Buenos Aires est une ville bien desservie par les transports en commun.Vous avez un coin salon, un coin salle à manger avec à disposition des couverts et des micro-ondes. Des souvenirs, des gâteaux et des distributeurs de boisson sont également là.Vous avez aussi des distributeurs d'eau gratuits, au cas où vous n'aimez pas l'eau courante locale.Si vous avez besoin de quoi que ce soit, Milva et ses collègues ainsi que le directeur sont là pour faire en sorte que vous soyez à l'aise.J'ai souhaité changer mes cours intensifs (cours du matin + de l'après-midi) à des cours privés le matin, tout en conservant mes cours de l'après-midi.Ils m'ont changé ça tout aussi facilement et sans payer plus, en arrangeant et allégeant mon planning.Les salles sont petites, d'un savant mélange de moderne et d'ancien, mais agréables. Ça évite de les surcharger d'élèves.Parfait! En cours privé, votre prof s'adapte à vos besoins et se focalise sur vos envies et vos intérêts. Pour ma part, je souhaitais beaucoup parler.Attention toutefois à vous assurer ne pas changer trop souvent de prof, au regret de ne pas se sentir évoluer assez vite à son goût.En cours de groupe (matin), c'est un mélange d'un peu de tout. Très sympa pour rencontrer d'autres élèves, évoluer dans une ambiance chaleureuse sur quelques points de grammaire.L'après-midi est consacrée à de la conversation. C'est la meilleure expérience que j'ai eu dans mon immersion culturelle!Rencontrer des argentins m'a permis d'échanger encore plus, et cette option m'a permis de garder une certaine liberté, de sortir ou voyager quand je le voulais et de me cuisiner ce que je préférais.Les argentins sont personnes absolument adorables! Ils vous accueillent comme leur propre membre de la famille. Expanish propose énormément d'activités à l'école ou des sorties en-dehors, et de tout genre, quasi tous les jours. Activités culturelles (visites, cuisine, goûter), sorties (bars, jeux, vue sur le coucher de soleil)...Chaque semaine une agente de voyage vient à l'école pour vous parler des prochains voyages en Argentine qu'ils proposent.Le personnel de l'école est également très disponible et l'on peut réserver beaucoup de choses via eux. Ils nous aident beaucoup.

Expanish, Buenos Aires
Duration: 11 weeks

I spent 3 months meeting unique people, not only international students but also local Argentinians, called Portenos. I not only learned Spanish but I also had the opportunity to get close to the culture and history of Argentina and South America. Thanks to the Expanish school, I was able to visit magnificent places such as Mendoza, Montevideo, the Iguazu Falls, etc. Each excursion brings you outside the city of Buenos Aires and allows you to get to know various societies of this nation. The work atmosphere in the school was always pleasant and allowed me to progress at my own pace. If you are looking for an unforgettable experience, I warmly recommend Expanish and Buenos Aires!

Host family
By staying with a host family in Buenos Aires, you will make the most out of your language study stay and experience the authentic Porteño lifestyle. Speaking Spanish in a relaxed atmosphere encourages you to apply everything you have acquired in class while picking up everyday, colloquial language. You will stay in a single room and benefit from half-board. Host families typically live between 45 and 60 minutes from the school by public transport.

Please note that students ages 16-17 must book the host family option with airport transfers.

Shared apartment (from 18 years)
This accommodation option lets you share a furnished apartment with an Argentinean local host in Buenos Aires and may be shared with other international students as well: an ideal opportunity to make new friends. You will share the kitchen, bathroom and other common rooms. In the evenings, you will prepare your meals and share recipes with your flatmates. An apartment can accommodate between 2 and 8 people.

Hotel (from 18 years)
Contact us for more information.

Choose from a multitude of activities organised by the school to give you a taste of Buenos Aires life. Most of the activities are free, while others have a small charge. Concerts, museum outings, wine tastings and football matches are popular options, as well as cooking classes, asados (deliciously meaty Argentinean barbecues), tango shows and photography classes. Regular dinners bring together teachers and students. Longer excursions to the famous Iguazu Falls or to towns like Mendoza (a glorious wine city at the foot of the Andes) are also on the agenda. Day trips include the Tigre Delta and Colonia, a charming town in neighbouring Uruguay which can be reached by a boat across the Rio Plata. You will soon find out why people come from all over the world to learn Spanish in Argentina’s enticing capital city.
