The Intensive Spanish 20 Experience

You will be learning Spanish naturally and gradually through our immersion program. Twenty hours of group Spanish lessons in Buenos Aires, Argentina, offer maximum exposure which ensures you will learn quickly and effectively. The classroom if not just filled with grammar and memorization—it is filled with new activities each day and new opportunities to get to know your peers while practicing speaking the language. Choosing the Intensive Spanish 20 language course will be both informative and enjoyable. It’s no secret why it’s the most popular course among our students year after year.

The Curriculum

The Cervantes Institute guidelines construct the program and the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages shape the teaching plans. Our native teachers use this solid framework alongside the communicative method, encouraging students to speak and interact in Spanish during class hours. This integral approach helps you develop the four key language skills: speaking, writing, reading and listening.

The Course

With sessions held in either the morning or the afternoon, Expanish’s most popular course gives an integral approach to intensive Spanish classes in Buenos Aires. As a student, you will not only learn formal and correct grammar but also practice everything you learn out loud with your teacher and classmates using materials from everyday life such as newspapers, video clips, advertisements and music. All this is in addition to the handcrafted material in the textbook.

Our teachers and staff designed and created an interactive and educational textbook perfectly geared toward each level. We welcome students of all levels—from complete beginners to those looking to perfect their advanced language skills. Whether you want to be able to communicate while traveling South America or you want to take your skills to a professional setting, our organized lessons and friendly staff of professionals will help reach your goal.

The Classroom

We offer a small teacher-to-student ratio in the classroom. To get the most out of our classes in Argentina, we assign native teachers in small groups for more personalized attention. Teachers provide individual care and focus on each student’s progress, giving feedback as you practice. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly so you can feel comfortable speaking in Spanish.

If you’re looking for an even more intensive course we recommend you look into Intensive Spanish 30.

I am really enjoying my time here at Expanish!

My profesores have been incredible and spice up their lessons with information about local slang and customs. Today we drank mate while learning the subjunctive! The staff is friendly and helpful, and the activities Expanish offers are excellent. I have been here two weeks and have already noticed a huge improvement in my Spanish level. I highly recommend studying here!

I spent an unforgettable month here.

I came to Expanish looking to quickly advance in my Spanish level to find a job in Argentina or Spain. Thanks to my excellent teachers I have a C1 level now.

Expanish was a terrific educational experience

The school is housed in very modern and spacious facilities. The administrative staff is very helpful and efficient. However, the best part of the school is the faculty. During my time at the school I encountered multiple teachers. While I preferred some more than others, all the faculty I had were energetic, well trained professional instructors who seemed to take pleasure in my improvement. The educational program is balanced with cultural activities and travel opportunities planned by the school. I have no regrets about attending Expanish, and will likely return.

Is the Spanish 20 available for all levels including beginners?

Yes. All students take the Expanish level test on their first day in order to be assigned to the right group level. From beginner to advanced, we offer classes that starts every Monday.  

Can I choose to have classes in the morning or the afternoon?

We have morning lessons throughout the year but during our high season (January-February) we offer afternoon sessions as well. Students will be assigned to their schedule according to their level. All classes, morning or afternoon, are the same price.

How do I choose between Spanish 20 and Spanish 30?

This depends on the experience you are looking for. Those who want to have their afternoons free in order to explore the city will find a better fit with Spanish 20. It offers 4 hours of classes per day which leaves the other half of the day open for activities, sightseeing and more. Those who would want to fully dedicate their time in Buenos Aires to studying and want to quickly increase their level of Spanish will find the Spanish 30 course a better option as they will have morning and afternoon sessions.
