Linguaschools in Buenos Aires is founded 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.
