Housed on one floor of a stately historic building which has been entirely refurbished, our partner school is located in the heart of the Argentinian capital, just steps from the iconic Plaza de Mayo and the Obelisco. 16 bright, hi-tech classrooms, a multipurpose room (for film, lectures, dance classes, etc.), a student lounge, two study rooms and a coffee/tea/mate area are perfect for meeting the other students and speaking Spanish. The school provides an assistance service for students. It's located in a pleasant pedestrian area lined with cafés, restaurants and shops. The nearest subway station is 100 metres away and both the waterfront Puerto Madero neighbourhood and the traditional San Telmo neighbourhood are within walking distance.

Expanish liegt in einen schönen Stadtteil von Buenos Aires (Bürostadt). Deswegen ist es sehr dynamisch. Mein allgemeiner Eindruck ist sehr positiv. In einige Klassenräume gibt es ein Fernsehen so dass wir Video schauen können oder die Audio hören können. Aber es gibt viele Klassenräume ohne Audiogeräte. Ein Raum hat auch keinen richtigen Tisch sondern Stühle mit Tablette, die nicht praktisch sind, zu studieren. Ich habe viel Glück gehabt, weil wir maximal 5 Studenten waren. Aber es gibt Gruppen mit 12 Studenten und das ist viel zu viel eine Fremdsprachen zu studieren.Das Kursmaterial ist einfach aber sehr gut. Normalerweise habe ich einen Block jede Woche.Die Lehrer sind sehr motiviert und die Stimmung immer gut. Es gibt einige Aktivitäten (aber nicht viel) und generell Anfang Nachmittag. Das Problem ist dass ich nicht teilnehmen könnte, weil ich Nachmittags Kurse hatte. Das ist eine Schwäche dieser Schule.

« Mein Ziel war so viel Spanisch zu lernen wie möglich. Ich habe bestimmt viel gelernt (z.B Grammatik, Vokabular, etc). Was ich sicher bin, ich kann jetzt viel leichter erklären was ich will, meine Wörter viel leichter finden und ich kann besser Spanisch verstehen. Natürlich sind 2 Wochen nicht genug aber das hat geholfen. »

Buenos Aires is seriously the best thing that happened to me. What an amazing city. The teachers at the school are stellar and it's rich on activities.I left a bit of my soul at that place. Much love to Argentina. Very lovely old lady, had great talks with her! Amazing. Could have more distant trips though. You kinda have to be lucky to be there exactly at the time when there are planned trips.

J’ai adoré l’Argentine. C’est un pays super intéressant mais en y allant pour apprendre l’espagnol, il ne faut pas s’attendre à l’organisation européenne. C’etait une expérience en soi de découvrir le fonctionnement du pays, l’inflation, les manifestations, la gentillesse et la curiosité des gens. Je recommande car cela ouvre l’esprit. L’école est super. Le staff est à l’écoute en cas de problèmes ou de demandes. Les profs sont dynamiques et très sympa. Il y a beaucoup d’élèves - cela dépend de la période - mais c’est intéressant. Peu d’élèves parlaient français. Je me suis beaucoup amusée à Expanish et ai rencontré des gens extraordinaires. J’ai vraiment adoré cette Ecole et j’ai pu lorsque je le désirais modifier mon programme pour deux semaines sans problème. Ils sont réceptifs aux besoins des etudiants. J’ai eu beaucoup de plaisir à vivre avec Chiara. On a beaucoup discuté de à situation en Argentine. C’était très intéressant pour moi. J’ai aussi beaucoup apprécié être libre de pouvoir cuisiner ce que je voulais sans devoir répondre à un horaire particulier. La chambre était petite mais agréable. La salle de bain et la cuisine étaient petites mais il y avait tout ce qu’il fallait. L’ecole Organise de nombreuses activités. J’ai beaucoup aimé le cours de tango. Pour le reste dès que l’on a un groupe d’ami, on organisait nos propres activités entre nous.

Ich würde jederzeit wieder Buenos Aires für einen Sprachkurs wählen. Tolle Schule mit geräumigen Räumlichkeiten. Gute Lehrer und auch bei sonstigen Problemen/ Anliegen wird man super unterstützt. Zudem werden kostenfreie wöchentliche Aktivitäten amgeboten. Ich war sehr zufrieden mit meiner Lehrerin (Gabi). Alles wurde verständlich erklärt und dabei herrschte eine lockere Atmosphäre.

Expanish, Buenos Aires
Duration: 11 weeks

I spent 3 months meeting unique people, not only international students but also local Argentinians, called Portenos. I not only learned Spanish but I also had the opportunity to get close to the culture and history of Argentina and South America. Thanks to the Expanish school, I was able to visit magnificent places such as Mendoza, Montevideo, the Iguazu Falls, etc. Each excursion brings you outside the city of Buenos Aires and allows you to get to know various societies of this nation. The work atmosphere in the school was always pleasant and allowed me to progress at my own pace. If you are looking for an unforgettable experience, I warmly recommend Expanish and Buenos Aires!

Host family
By staying with a host family in Buenos Aires, you will make the most out of your language study stay and experience the authentic Porteño lifestyle. Speaking Spanish in a relaxed atmosphere encourages you to apply everything you have acquired in class while picking up everyday, colloquial language. You will stay in a single room and benefit from half-board. Host families typically live between 45 and 60 minutes from the school by public transport.

Please note that students ages 16-17 must book the host family option with airport transfers.

Shared apartment (from 18 years)
This accommodation option lets you share a furnished apartment with an Argentinean local host in Buenos Aires and may be shared with other international students as well: an ideal opportunity to make new friends. You will share the kitchen, bathroom and other common rooms. In the evenings, you will prepare your meals and share recipes with your flatmates. An apartment can accommodate between 2 and 8 people.

Hotel (from 18 years)
Contact us for more information.

Choose from a multitude of activities organised by the school to give you a taste of Buenos Aires life. Most of the activities are free, while others have a small charge. Concerts, museum outings, wine tastings and football matches are popular options, as well as cooking classes, asados (deliciously meaty Argentinean barbecues), tango shows and photography classes. Regular dinners bring together teachers and students. Longer excursions to the famous Iguazu Falls or to towns like Mendoza (a glorious wine city at the foot of the Andes) are also on the agenda. Day trips include the Tigre Delta and Colonia, a charming town in neighbouring Uruguay which can be reached by a boat across the Rio Plata. You will soon find out why people come from all over the world to learn Spanish in Argentina’s enticing capital city.
