Mafalda…The Argentinian 6-year-old girl from the famous comic who reflects the Argentinian middle class and progressive youth, is concerned about humanity and world peace, and has serious attitude problems but in an innocent manner. The comic strips ran from 1964 to 1973 and was very popular in Latin America, Europe, Quebec and Asia, leading to two animated cartoon series and a book.

When you are going to our school in Buenos Aires, you should visit her in San Telmo (at the corner of Chile and Defensa). She is sitting there every day smiling together with her friends. You can easily practise your Spanish with them.


If you are in Buenos Aires or planning to go these days you can prepare yourself for a loooong weekend of celebrations because of the Independence day of Argentina.

The Independence Day of the Argentine Republic is celebrated every year on July 9th, having its origin in the commemoration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence of Argentina, on Tuesday July 9, 1816 (declared in 1941 as a National Historic Monument). By which the country proclaimed its political independence from the Spanish Monarchy and also renounced all foreign domination.

The day is celebrated by patriotic events such as speeches, parades and military demonstrations. If you go to Avenida de Mayo you will definetley find large groups of people enjoying the day’s celebrations.

Many Argentines will be celebrating with family and friends. It is a good time for families to get together to eat, drink and socialise during some traditional Argentine asado (BBQ). So if you stay with a host family….Buen Provecho!

Next Monday July 9th you have to get out there, practise your Spanish and celebrate Independence with the porteños (locals of Buenos Aires)! Check out all activities here.

And if your conversations with the locals didn’t work out the way you would have liked to…check out our school in Buenos Aires, our teachers are looking forward to teach you more Spanish!


Last week, our students of our school in Buenos Aires, went to visit the exposition ‘Les Visitants’  in the CCK.

This prestigeous exposition presents a variety of selected artworks by Guillermo Kuitca of the Fondation Cartier  like the contemporary artworks of David Lynch, Patti Smith, Nobuyoshi Araki, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Adriana Varejão y Tony Oursler.

We sat in ‘David’s Living Room Revisited’.  inspired by the drawnings of David Lunch.  

The history of that room started in 2007 when David Lynch imagined this space inspired by his own paintings and drawning ‘The Air is on Fire’.

In this room you can listen to the voice of Patti Smith reading a text written by David Lynch.


We walked through the Mirror Maze (Dead Eyes Live).

This artwork was created in 2003 by Tony Oursler, an American multimedia and installation artist.

A room full of eyes closing and opening. He began developing the Eyes series in 1996.


We also could admire a gallery of photos of various artists.

It was an intruiging and full of suprises visit.

We have founded Linguaschools in Buenos Aires in the belief that we have a special service to offer to our foreign students. All of us have worked with foreign students before, either as teachers, host families, or guides. None of us has found the kind of professional teaching, high-quality housing, and rich social life that we offer anywhere else in Buenos Aires. We believe that as a professional service provider, we must understand the particular needs of our guests from all over the world and meet their high demands.

The school is located in downtown Buenos Aires, 50 yards off the historic Plaza de Mayo in the famous San Telmo district. We have excellent transport connections to all parts of town. It is close to major tourist attractions, theaters, cinemas and nightlife attractions as well as the beach.

Linguaschools occupies the top floor of the building with access to the rooftop terrace. There are 10-12 classrooms available for teaching at any time. Add to that 7 PCs with internet access (plus wifi all over the school), a small library with books and DVDs, a movie room, the teachers’ room and, of course, the area where students spend their breaks (with student computers and kitchen corner with microwave oven).


Why study Spanish with us?

Our school uses a full-immersion, integrated learning method. This means that you will learn Spanish 24 hours a day, in professionally conducted classes, informally at home with your host family (if you choose this option) and during extra-curricular activities. Our approach is based on the idea that participating in a mix of different language situations is the most efficient way to learn a foreign language.

All of our staff are professional Spanish teachers with relevant university degrees from top universities in Argentina (or in their last year of study). All of them are native speakers, of course. Most of them speak at least two other languages and have extensive experience in working with students from abroad. As obvious as this may sound, our teachers are a key ingredient of our service offering and they heavily contribute to making your stay a productive and an enjoyable one.

Our teaching staff has been carefully selected. Academic credentials are a prerequisite for teachers in most schools. At our school, we also guarantee open-minded, motivated teachers who can bring across the necessary teaching content. Some of our teachers also teach literature at the prestigious Universidad de Buenos Aires.


Our school in Buenos Aires is a language school accepted by SEA, Argentina’s language school association.





Spanish courses in Buenos Aires

We offer many different options for Spanish courses in Buenos Aires. All courses run Monday to Friday and are taught in different levels, from absolute beginner to advanced. You can either learn Spanish in a group, individually or a combination of the two, the so called intensive 20+5 or 20+10.  If you are into Tango, you can take Tango lessons while learning Spanish at a discounted rate.



It would be a shame if we “only” taught you the Spanish language and neglected Argentina’s and Latin-America’s artistic, historic and literary legacy. At our school, we believe that language and culture go hand in hand. This is why we have designed programs rich in cultural content, the degree of which varies according to the duration of your specific program and skill level. These activities form an integral part of our teaching methodology to ensure that our students gain true insights and get answers about our history and culture.

Every Monday we propose our students a list of at least four daily events, including academic activities and upcoming city programs. The programs we organize and recommend share three characteristics.

  • Insider’s view: Experienced local experts will guide our students through the dynamic and real cultural context of Buenos Aires and Argentina to provide the insider’s view.
  • Customized options for all ages, interests and budgets: Our activities are planned to match interests and goals: most of them are free for our students (e.g.: language workshops, movie nights, guided city tours) and organized solely for them.
  • Variety (in theme, location and duration): In addition to the complimentary programs our students can choose from various excursions, tango shows and classes, day and weekend trips, estancia visits, theater pieces and more, which we charge at cost.
