The best decision I have made

I made the decision to do a 6 month internship in Sustainable Development with Road2Argentina for my placement at University. From the first day I arrived Mateo and David made me feel comfortable and safe in a city that was so far from home. Any concerns I had were answered within the first day I arrived and from that day they were available to call 24/7 no matter the problem. I chose the shared apartment option and was placed with a lovely relaxed family that lived in the heart of Palermo which made going out with friends very convenient.

If you are concerned about your Spanish level before applying, don't let this be a barrier! There are many schools around the city which you can go to and they also act as a great way to make new friends. I arrived with little to no knowledge in Spanish and left almost being able to speak it fluently.

My internship immediately exposed me to sustainability projects from all across South America and the knowledge and life skills I gained from this experience are invaluable. It has only been since returning back to London and having interviews with different companies have I realised just how valuable this experience has been and how much it makes you stand out when applying for jobs.

If you have any queries please don't hesitate to get in contact with Mateo or David and ask for my contact details and I will happily speak in more depth about what to expect in Buenos Aires and what you can gain from doing an internship here before you apply.

The thing that makes Road2Argentina so special is how personal it is. Unlike other companies that operate in this market, Road2 feels much more like a family and will cater to your every need to make this a truly amazing experience. It wont be long before I return to Argentina and in Mateo and David I have found lifelong friends.

Pros
  • 24/7 support for any query
  • Invaluable life experience
  • Great to make you stand our when applying for future jobs
Cons
  • None

Internship with Road2Argentina!

I had an amazing time in Argentina with the help of Mateo and David! They were extremely kind and help me to get settled in Buenos Aires. It was a daunting experience at first, but with their help and the fun socials that they organised I was able to make the most out of my time there! They helped me with the commute from my flat to work, SIM card, transaction advice and much more. I would certainly recommend others to use Road2Argentina as their personal touch provides a far more valuable experience and they were always there for me when I needed it!

Pros
  • Language development
  • CV building
  • Personal development
Cons
  • Would have loved to stay for longer than a month!

Ane in Buenos Aires

I have met many people. Buenos Aires gives you the opportunity to get to know many places and make different plans on a daily basis. It is a very lively city with lots of things to do. The plans with Road2argentina are very cool and allow you to meet a lot of new people.
No doubt it was an amazing experience and I would repeat it again and again.
It has given me the opportunity to get to know a beautiful country, with many different landscapes. As for my daily life, I worked in the mornings but in the afternoons I took the opportunity to make different plans. One of the things I liked most was to go jogging with my friends in the beautiful gardens that Buenos Aires has.

Amazing unique experience

I did a three month internship in Buenos Aires through Road2Argentina and this was an experience I will never forget. I arranged it through Road2Argentina and the process went really smooth and easy. First we talked through Skype and we tried to find a suitable internship. I ended up at an amazing lovely marketing company operating in a beautiful part of Buenos Aires (Palermo Soho). This company was a young hip and modern company in an amazing neighbourhood. Next to this, Mateo and David (the owners of Road2Argentina) Arranged every week at least 2 really nice local events for me and other interns. Events to get to know the city, the culture, the country. Every week we could let them know if we would be able and willing to participate. Through this I’ve met other interns and even friends and family from Mateo and David. This was really nice to get to know the city better and an addition to my experience. They also provided a lot of information regarding safety, money, where to go, where to live and what to do or not. During my time, I could reach them always when I needed to. Either serious cases or non serious. I am really happy they helped me with creating this amazing opportunity and memory for me. Also Argentina is an amazing country to travel through. Buenos Aires is a beautiful city with amazing parties and culture. In Argentina you can travel to Salta and Patagonia, which is unbelievable beautiful. When choosing Road2Argentina, you will have a good time, for sure! Thanks again Mateo and David, nos vemos en futuro!!!

What would you improve about this program?
It would be more fun with more interns, but this is something you can never promise from the beginning.

Argentina I love you !!!

Since I came here I knowed that was an ramarkable life experience because The City of Buenos Aires and all the cities of the country that I visited are so beautiful and the people is so lovefull.

The landscapes, the folks, the irresistible of the nigth life in Buenos Aires makes the country a european wonder in South America.

Is was a great challenge to meet all these amazing new international students.

The program can help set you up with an awesome host family or a more independent apartment.

The social scene was what you wanted it to be, if you wanted crazy nights at the club, there was always someone to go out with, or if you just wanted a chill dinner night you could always find someone to go with.

I will never forget the excellent treath of David and Mateo. Always so kind and diligent people.

My love for Argentina remains alive forever

Thanks for all guys!!

Best Experience Of My Life

My 12-week internship in Buenos Aires was awesome. This experience changes my personal and professional life. There is so much good about Buenos Aires. Tango, football, food, street art, European style architecture, culture, museums, history... are amazing! About the job, I was in a good company. I got to meet funny and open-minded people who are passionate about their job. I have learned so much with those people related to my field of study. I worked on nice and interesting projects. About the program, Each time I needed help, the coordinators were able to help me. They always had nice activities to relax and have fun in my free times. I definitely recommend this program to anyone who wants to experience a job abroad and enhance his resume while having fun and learning about all the amazing stuff this city has.

What was your funniest moment?
One of my coworkers always says stupid stuff that makes me laugh. When he's focused on work while listening to music, he's really in it by making weird sounds.

An Unforgettable Adventure

My internship in Buenos Aires was one of the best abroad trips I have ever taken. I had no type of feeling of it at the beginning other than a slight nervousness. I was kind of iffy on the placement but as it continued it grew on me and it helped me decide what I want to do in the future. Although, I still am unsure what I want to do as a career choice this internship allowed me to explore options that I can do once I graduate. I was once interested in going into law but my placement, which was at a technology law firm, has ensured me that I will not be going into law any time soon. Outside of my internship, my adventures were quite appealing. Each trip has its own place in my head as they were each unique. I cannot wait to come back to explore more of Buenos Aires and to enhance my Spanish speaking skills.

What was your funniest moment?
My funniest moment occurred multiple times throughout the trip. This involved my knowledge of Spanish which was quite low. So explaining things was one of the best things to do when speaking to Spanish speaking people. For example, our group of about 10 were at a restaurant and one half was stressing over our Airbnb for a trip that got canceled and the other half was laughing alongside with the waitress. I just so happened to be on the side laughing because we were trying to say "tip" and we were saying "tipo". The waitress was quite confused as "tipo" means kind and not the word for tip. When she finally realized what we were trying to say she completely lost it and couldn't hide her laughter.

The perfect experience

The experience is the perfect blend of learning, growing, and having fun. Road sets you up with an internship and company that they know pique your interest. They create activities that expose you to the Argentine culture in a fun way. The program allows students to feel more comfortable in a foreign country; it made me more confident to explore all the different facets of the culture. The people of Buenos Aires are extremely patient and friendly; they're always willing to help foreigners out. My goal in going to Buenos Aires was to treat it as if I was actually living there, instead of on vacation. The internship and program laid the foundation to allow me to do that. I felt at home in Buenos Aires and was absolutely heartbroken when my 16 weeks came to an end.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
I encourage everyone to explore the different parts of the city, as well as the country. Argentina is a dynamic place.
