I spent a month in Cordoba, in August 2011, living with a family and taking four hours of classes each day. Cordoba is a wonderful city, with friendly, helpful people. I walked 5 km to class, but the bus was an easy option, too. There are many museums, much shopping, and things to see and do. There was not much "culture shock" even though I met very few people that spoke English, and no one from the United States, apart from one other student in school. I had the opportunity to teach a class in a neighborhood school, telling Argentine students about US music and geography, as part of their English lessons. I made great friends from Brazil, Germany, Switzerland, and Argentina!
