This program is divided into three main components:

  • Spanish everywhere

Courses with a strong emphasis on the practical use of the Spanish language. Specific focus on acquiring the language as a social instrument. Rather than spending time in a classroom, each morning you will have a Spanish session in a different place; from co-work and laboratories to museums and parks.

  • Intercultural Communication

Meet different students, both local and international, to practice your Spanish. Foster your speaking skills through purposeful interaction with other Spanish and English language learners.

  • Culture and Recreation

In the land of steak and mate, wine and candombe music, museums and soccer, there are endless opportunities to mingle with the locals and learn more about their culture and language. This program will provide you with guided visits to restaurants, natural parks, historical landmarks, and even nightclubs.
