Cultural and Leisure Programs
Directly experiencing another culture and its people are essential for a true understanding of the language. Consequently, our cultural and leisure programs are an important part of our course program, complementing classroom activities with a personal experience of life in a Spanish-speaking environment.
To this end, we provide tours of some of the famous and affluent neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, such as: Puerto Madero and Recoleta, tours of the area around Plaza San Martin, and tours of La Boca and San Telmo (birthplace of the Tango) and other popular cultural areas. All these visits are made in groups guided by one of our teachers and are very helpful in practicing Spanish.
Some of these activities are free. They are included in the price of the courses. For others, the student may have to pay a small ticket or admission charge. Extra costs are noted where required.
