AIFS Summer Program

I did an intensive 4 week Spanish course with AIFS at Universidad de Belgrano in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I did this program before taking a semester of classes and it really helped me prepare for the rest of my time in Argentina. Monday through Friday we would have class for 5 hours a day, with breaks in between for lunch. Once classes were over in the afternoon the AIFS director would take us on excursions around the city. Our director, Barbara always made sure we had an activity to do if we wanted to participate in. She gave restaurant recommendations, help with transportation and encouraged us to speak as much Spanish as possible to improve our speaking level. I stayed with a hostmom and had a roommate that was also with AIFS, our hostmom provided breakfast and dinner everyday. The apartment I stayed in was only 3 blocks away from the University which made it extremely convenient t to walk back and forth and also feel safe at the same time. On the weekends, our director always made sure we used our time wisely to explore as much as the city as possible. AIFS was the best fit for me, they made me feel comfortable and safe in a new city with a language I was not fluent in, they gave me tons of opportunities to optimize my time in Argentina to the fullest.
