Buenos Aires is a very good place to learn Spanish and I picked well to choose Expanish. For 4 weeks. I found the teachers really stellar and well educated above and beyond what I expected. They had a variety of word games that were quite fun, educational and creative. Our group class had some very good discussions about world events, dating, relationships and culture. As I am looking over some of my classwork notes, we covered many subjects through a variety of exercises. I think I was placed in an intermediate level, but whatever level it was it was challenging we covered several subjects. (We took a placement test on the first day). The school is first class. The school did not organize outside activities because there are many organizations in BA that do. I wish that they did because unless you are with people you know, you might end up sightseeing on your own. Being an extrovert or proactive helps if you are older, in my case. I befriended someone my age and had a great time outside of school and we spoke spanish only. I also wish they had a school binder because I could never keep track of all the handouts but I understand that each teacher has their methods and favorite handouts. As well as the group classes, I took a 2 hour one on one class, I think twice a week. That was intensive! I think my brain was fried. I think I would try just 1 hour a day 5 times a week. I thought the teachers, administration and staff were quite good. Our teacher also demonstrated how to drink mate properly and shared it weekly with us. Not bad with a bit of sugar, but I'm an amateur. Also my family stay was really good. The hostess was warm and friendly and helped me throughout my stay. I love the porteño accent. Oh yes, I took about 6 tango lessons and enjoyed every minute of it! If you are vegetarian and worried about all this meat, not to worry, there are plenty of places that serve vegetarian-style and fresh juices near the school.
