I am really enjoying my time in Buenos Aires, and especially studying Spanish at Expanish. I came here 6 weeks ago with quite a basic level but feel I’ve made quick progress over that time through morning lessons, conversation classes and private lessons. The atmosphere here is always friendly and supportive, and I’ll be sad to leave when my time is up!
The experience started with lots of great and helpful information in advance and continued with a warm welcome on the first day in school. Expanish is full of students of different ages from all over the world. The teachers are very proficient and the modern rooms make the school a perfect working environment. Living in BA with its diverse quarters and learning Spanish is an experience I can highly recommend.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Expanish. The teachers and staff are knowledgeable and patient. Group classes are a great way to meet and learn from people around the world, while private classes offer a great 1-on-1 experience at your own pace. I cannot think of a better city than Buenos Aires to spend my time discovering and learning.
For years we have collaborated with institutions from around the world, connecting students with local academia and community organizations to foster international exchange.
If you are looking to learn a new language, there is no better way than to immerse yourself in a Spanish speaking country, and if you are not already living in one, pack your bags and prepare for a bit of culture shock because you are going to learn Spanish Abroad!
If you are hoping to learn Spanish abroad, Expanish offers a variety of resources beyond the classroom which will help in the process. One of the best things about learning abroad is the cultural immersion which takes place in addition to the language immersion. Learning abroad is also a wonderful opportunity to travel the region. Expanish is prepared to offer you the best opportunities to experience cultural immersion and to travel outside of the city of study, whether you learn Spanish in Spain or in Argentina.
Being able to have a good night of sleep is an essential part of almost any experience. At Expanish we offer you four different ways to get your good night of sleep in all of our destinations: homestay, shared apartment with a host, private apartment, and student residences. Each option provides unique opportunities to engage with cultural norms, such as becoming part of a family in a homestay or getting to know local students in a student residence. In all of these accommodation options, you will be immersed in the culture of the city at your level of comfort.
Slang, dance style, food, and drink make up some of the days to day choices of locals anywhere in the world. To understand both verbal (slang) and nonverbal (dance and food) communication methods is to be immersed in the practices and customs of a culture. Become well versed in the history and steps of Flamenco or Tango, to help deepen your understanding of the remarks and gestures of locals. Learn the distinct folds of the empanada or the wide variety of tapas dishes, to gain an appreciation for the messages food can send.
The nightlife of a city exposes aspects of the culture which might not be observable over polite dinner table conversation. Visiting fun bars, and clubs, learning what the local’s order and what music gets them moving can be one of the most entertaining chances experience cultural immersion. Expanish offers a variety of events which allow you to do exactly that in both Spain and Argentina.
Madrid, Barcelona, and Buenos Aires are metropolitan meccas, which offer a variety of events, attractions, and experiences sure to provide entertainment from dawn to dawn. From walks along el Caminito, to explorations of Park Guell, Expanish offers many opportunities to get to know the city a bit better by delving into some of the most iconic locations.
In addition to being able to study in a different city, when you learn Spanish abroad, you gain the ability to travel to places you might never have imagined yourself, from Iguazu, one of the largest waterfalls in the world, to the expansive fortresses of the medieval city of Girona. Expanish offers the opportunity to travel with your fellow language learners, meaning guaranteed travel partners. With 12 years of experience in helping people from around the world learn Spanish abroad, we understand the importance of wonderful travel experience in your language learning adventures.
