How to know if you’re ready to travel and study Spanish in Buenos Aires? It’s simple: If you’ve taken these steps, you’ll know if it’s time to jump on the plane with your dictionary and visit one of the most beautiful cities in Latin America.

  1. You’ve downloaded Duolingo, the application for learning languages

Duolingo is probably the first resource that many people use to start having contact with the language they want to learn. It’s free, very intuitive and it’s a good option to take your first steps into Spanish. But of course, there comes a time when this application is not enough and you’ll want to have contact with real people and in particular, with a native Spanish teacher who can correct your pronunciation and help you structure sentences. So if this has happened to you, excellent! You already have your first sign that you are ready to come to study Spanish in Buenos Aires.

  1. You’ve seen all the classic Argentine films

Do the films “Nine Queens“, “The Motorcycle Diaries” or “Evita” sound familiar to you? Do you already know who Ricardo Darín is because you’ve seen him everywhere? Personally, whenever I can, before I travel I try to watch a TV show or a film that has been shot in the place I am going to visit. In addition to learning new words, it’s an excellent way to see local landscapes, customs and gestures. There are many Argentine films that narrate the history of the country. In this article, you will find 20 films and series to learn about the history of Argentina. Instead of staying behind your TV or PC screen, why not enjoy that history, landscapes and culture in person?

  1. You’ve looked online for Spanish courses in Argentina

Now it’s easier than ever to look for information about Spanish courses in Argentina. But it’s important to read about the options that you have according to your goals and to read evaluations in Google Maps, Trip Advisor or Facebook to make sure that the place is good and according to what you’re looking for.

  1. You’ve seen all the photos of your friends who traveled to Argentina

Seeing photos on Instagram or Facebook from friends who have traveled and visited new places is the most tempting thing to do in the world. I’ve even browsed through pictures of people I don’t know just to see what they did in the place I’d like to visit. For that reason, if you’ve already seen all the albums with photos of Buenos Aires and felt like visiting it and learning Spanish, that’s a great sign to book your trip to Argentina!

  1. You are doing mathematical calculations to see if you can take a holiday

Not everyone can travel at any time of the year. If you have a fixed job it’s a little harder to find the right time to travel abroad. In addition, you need to have a budget that will allow you to enjoy your trip. So, if you are doing numbers and watching your calendar every two seconds, I recommend you to start writing an e-mail to your boss to organize your trip with enough time!

I hope these signs give you the push you need to come to Buenos Aires to study Spanish, and if not, take them as tips to motivate you even more. Don’t hesitate to contact us on our website if you have any questions. Have a good trip!
