Learn Spanish in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Mixing Latin passion with an old and faded grandeur, Buenos Aires is one of the world’s most iconic cities.

You can never get enough of Buenos Aires. The culture, the lifestyle, the Latin atmosphere...it’s all so unique. With every footstep you find someplace new, from a small tango club to a street filled with bookstores. There’s elegant old architecture along with gritty local neighbourhoods. Local street markets will help you practice Spanish. Then there’s all the nightlife, with craft beers, small cafes and amazing dancers.

This is a city made up of many neighbourhoods, each with its own distinct flair. San Telmo takes you into the Buenos Aires of old. Palermo is young and cool. La Boca is dominated by bright colours and street-side scenes. There are so many others as well. There’s a good metro system (the oldest in Latin America) connecting most of the city but it’s also cheap to get around by taxi.

Many people dream of visiting Buenos Aires. Few people get the opportunity to experience living in Buenos Aires. Even if you visit for a week there’s no chance of getting around it all. Come learn Spanish here and you’ll get to know the local side to Argentina’s capital. And Buenos Aires will become a part of you.

El Caminito

So colourful you need sunglasses, El Caminito is a street museum in the heart of La Boca neighbourhood. It’s the most famous place to come in the city and you’ll probably visit more than once.

San Telmo district

The city’s oldest neighbourhood has been carefully preserved. There’s a sense of faded grandeur, wrapped up in an energetic Latin atmosphere. Come here for the street market or the hundreds of little places to eat and drink.

Palermo district

Palermo is where the cool kids hang out. You’ll find boutique stores, art galleries, excellent restaurants, and a continual choice of new places to try. This is a great barrio (neighbourhood) for walking around without a map and enjoying the city’s style.

Gaucho estancia

Gauchos are Argentina’s cowboys while estancias are their ranches. Visit one and you can get your hands dirty, trying everything from horse riding to cattle rearing. Or you can sit back, drink the wine, and eat the steak.

Tango

Tango has its home in Buenos Aires. Dance along to the beat during one of the many public lessons that take place. Or watch the experts and feel the energy of a dance that defines a city.

From here it’s an easy journey to the happening neighbourhoods of Palermo and Recoleta. You can take the metro from besides the school to other exciting parts of the city, like San Telmo and Puerto Madeiro. And you can take your Spanish skills with you. After studying in the day our school equips you to keep practicing during the evenings, when you’re discovering what the Argentinian capital is all about.

The school has large, comfortable classrooms and proves an inviting place to study, with a rooftop terrace providing views and chill-out space. Each of the teachers has at least a university degree and a Spanish teaching qualification, complemented by many years of experience.

Spanish courses in Buenos Aires

All courses at Linguaschools Buenos Aires are designed around your Spanish proficiency. You’ll be placed with students of similar ability and there’s a great mix of nationalities and ages, so you make friends with people who are very different from yourself. Courses run from Monday to Friday and you can start on any Monday of the year (except for holidays listed below). Most students take 20 group lessons per week but Linguaschools Buenos Aires has the flexibility to fit your time commitments.

Studying with others means chance to use your Spanish skills with people of similar ability, and to learn from each other. Group courses can be combined with individual lessons. Many students prefer a course made exclusively of individual lessons and this can be any number of hours per week.  We also offer a special course combining Spanish language with tango.
