Buenos Aires is a great destination to study Spanish for many different reasons

Buenos Aires is a great destination to study Spanish

Of course the main reason is the character and the experiences of the cosmopoliitan city itself. Buenos Aires is  one of the most amazing and lively cities of South America, full of culture, temperament, tango, arquitecture and so on. That’s why the Argentine capital is also called “the vibrant city that never sleeps”, full of museums, cafes, bars and history.

Wander the bustling streets and grand avenues of Buenos Aires – all just a stone throw from our school building, located in the amazing Barolo Palace downtown Buenos Aires.

Besides that, the friendly people from Buenos Aires have a unique Spanish accent, however, you will be prepared to speak Spanish all over the world. Buenos Aires is a perfect location to live and learn the Spanish language, immersed in the amazing city life of Buenos Aires.
