By pledging to speak only the target language while abroad, students will have the best chance of acquiring fluency and actively engaging in the local environment. Participants take their courses directly in a local university, and all students are encouraged to get involved in the community through internships or interactions within the clubs and activities available.
Buenos Aires, home of the tango, is famous for its 47 distinctive barrios, such as San Telmo and Recoleta. But it is also a city of wide streets, spacious parks, and squares full of historical and architectural monuments. The cultural life is also distinctive, with innumerable art galleries, museums, cinemas, and the Colón Theatre, one of the top three opera houses in the world.
