Exceeded Expectations

My time in Buenos Aires was phenomenal. The Spanish classes were great, the networking events were well put together, and the internship with a local non-profit was an incredible experience. I would recommend this program without reservations. The city of Buenos Aires is a great place to travel and there is plenty to do and lots of ways to have fun over a long period of time. The arts and architecture are great. The parks are lovely and provide a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The cafes and restaurants are amazing. The neighborhood of Palermo has plenty to offer by itself.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
The food in Argentina was really good. I especially loved the parrillas, also known as the grilled meats. The mate tea was great. Fernet and Coke. Provoleta or fried cheese. Milanesa. Medialunas. I love it all.

Best way to experience BA!

Mente Argentina did a great job of coordinating events that are truly unique to Buenos Aires. Program coordinators were always willing to lend a helping hand and answer any questions that I had throughout my time in the city. Mente also arranged for my pick up and drop off at the airport, provided me with a SIM card to use during my stay and a SUBTE card to use public transportation. They also did a fantastic job of matching me with a great host family! Would recommend this program to anyone looking to travel to Argentina.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Take advantage of all of the the events that Mente puts on!

Great Experience!!!

I travel very often and Mente Argentina has set the bar very high. Mente placed me with the perfect internship for my Master’s program. My internship was with Chacras de Buenos Aires which focused on sustainable development. I was educated on better ways we can improve the environment. Also, the affordability, housing, and excursions was an amazing bonus. My housing was very spacious, I had my own room and my housemates have become people I now call friends. My housing was in prime location in Palermo. I felt close to everything I will ever need. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to anything I needed. The public transportation is very easy to use once you get the hang of it. Overall, I had an amazing experience and made friendship with individuals from all over.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
If I did it all over. I would stay longer than two months. Although, two months seems long it is not compared to all there is to do in Buenos Aires!!!

An Unforgettable Experience

From the start of my study abroad trip, Mente made Argentina feel like home. Nervous about going into a foreign country knowing absolutely no one, Mente's weekly activities were a fun way to meet other individuals who were also studying abroad in Buenos Aires. The staff was always warm and welcoming and they were always available to help sort out any problems I came across. When I ran into a housing problem my first week into the program, I was stressed and wary about a totally unexpected situation so far from home. However, Marcelo immediately put me at ease and reassured me that everything would be okay. The issue was resolved almost immediately and I ended up in a new housing situation that was better than I could have ever imagined and much more suitable for my needs! My internship placement at Manos Abiertas was also very interesting and helped me navigate and understand both Buenos Aires and its culture a lot better. Thanks to Mente, I was exposed to one of the coolest cities in the world, I was given the opportunity to travel all around Argentina and Uruguay, and I met some of my best friends to this date. If you every have the opportunity, I would highly recommend experiencing Buenos Aires and all it has to offer with Mente Argentina.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Take as many chances as you can and don't say no to opportunities that likely won't come by again. When else will you be in Latin America for such an extended period of time with such few obligations? Just do it!

Super recomendable! Mente Argentina me ayudo a conseguir una pasantía en una agencia espectacular en el área de mi interés, y aparte de eso toda mi estadía en Buenos Aires fue increíble, desde los lugares y las personas que conocí hasta la estadía y los viajes🙌🏻 Mente te da la libertad de organizarte como quieras y eso me permitió desarrollarme a mi tiempo y a mi manera, siempre encuentras algo que hacer dentro de la ciudad y nunca vas a estar aburrido. En verdad ha sido una de las experiencias más gratificantes que he tenido y espero regresar pronto para revivir lo mejor de mi verano y encontrarme con cosas que me sigan beneficiando a futuro. Gracias Mente por todo su apoyo y por hacer de mi experiencia internacional algo que nunca olvidaré!

The neighborhood I was in was the most active and I could walk around every day at any time and there was always something new to discover


El Barrio en el que estaba era el más activo y podía caminar por ahí todos los días a cualquier momento y siempre había algo nuevo que descubrir

Mente Argentina Review

I personally had a really positive experience with Mente during my five months in Argentina. I originally arrived in Buenos Aires with the intention of doing an internship in an international holiday rental company. I did this for a month before deciding that it wasn't quite right; I had come to Argentina with the primary purpose of learning Spanish and the company mainly functioned in English. When I told this to Mente, the staff were exceedingly helpful in ensuring that I eventually found the perfect internship for me. Even though my home university in England was extremely strict in terms of what I could and could not do in Argentina, the staff at Mente were not fazed at all and continued to help me until all university documents had been signed and approved. I was very appreciative of all the support I received at this stressful time.
I ended up working in a public hospital and had an incredible time. Spanish was the only language spoken there and therefore I not only improved my language skills but also gained some very valuable work experience as well. Since learning Spanish was my main reason for coming to Argentina in the first place, I was really happy with Mente for helping me to achieve exactly what I had wanted to do.

Regarding the social side, I was also very satisfied by what Mente offered. I decided to travel to Argentina with a program because I didn't know anyone out there and wanted a little security too. Mente was perfect for this because I immediately felt safe in Buenos Aires; it was really nice having a local explain to you exactly how the city works, how to use the transport system and which areas to avoid. The social activities were well planned and always interesting. By the end of five months I had pretty much done every museum in the city, gone to loads of bars and events like Tango shows. Similarly, because of the way the social side of Mente is set up, I immediately made good friends and felt very much part of their social circle. Looking back now, I've made some very close friends through Mente who I'll continue talking to for many years to come.

What would you improve about this program?
I only have two comments regarding the program. Firstly the accommodation could be improved; all the apartments could so with some basic renovations and modernisation. This wasn't too much of a problem for me personally but some people thought it wasn't quite good enough. If you're expecting Western standard accommodation then you will be somewhat disappointed. I think people on the program often forget that living in Argentina isn't going to be identical to living in London or Los Angeles, for example. My only other comment would be that the whole program seemed a little expensive once you consider everything. I think the price could be lowered a little to make the whole experience much more affordable.

My Mente Argentina Internship Programme experience

I spent a total of 5 months in Buenos Aires in which I undertook two 10-week internships as part of my programme, and the whole experience really was truly fantastic. The apartment provided to me as part of the programme was great - in the perfect location, the perfect size and with everything I could need, shared with 2 others also on the programme with whom I soon became very close friends. MA definitely had a very large variety of potential internships available to you, and they really were so helpful in helping me find the ones which were right for me. There was also usually a weekly social with the other students on the programme, which is great for helping you meet people and settle in- although if you want to meet Argentines, you will have to go that extra mile! However its definitely possible. The programme also regularly keeps you updated with other things to get involved with in the city at the time, which I really appreciated, as well as the included gym membership which was awesome. I found the MA team friendly, attentive and approachable and I really would recommend this company and the city of Buenos Aires in general to anyone!

What would you improve about this program?
I think it could only be improved perhaps by there being more regular Mente Argentina activities held for participants, and more variety also, as they were often pretty much the same thing. Perhaps also my initiation right at the beginning could have been a little more in depth, with more information about the city, how to get around, how things work and where the different places are. The city is so huge it can be pretty daunting at first, and most people will, like me, be there for the first time.
But apart from that, it really was awesome!

Learn Spanish, get experience, have fun

I believe this program helped me to get the most out of my study abroad experience by being fully immersed in the culture. The staff put me in touch with an internship program that allowed me to get on-the-job training and really helped me to improve my Spanish. The Mente coordinators have been here a while and are super-friendly as well as being knowledgeable enough to help with any kind of problem. With the group excursions, I was able to experience a lot of things that I might not have found on my own, but the program is also set up so that students can do things on their own if they want to. I was living in an apartment with one other girl who was also part of Mente Argentina, and we were able to live independently while still having people there to help us.

Questions & Answers

No, they are not paid internships. Or at least that was the case when I attended the program. I hope that helps!
