A Great Start for Me

8/10

BridgeArgentina was a great overall experience for me. It was an expensive endeavor for me, but the brush up on English grammar, how to teach it, the student practice teaching lessons, and most of all the instant community of English teachers was definitely worth my dime. Although as students you have to do a lot of work to find your own employment, it would have been a way larger struggle without knowing anyone in the city or having a support staff that guided you through bad and good options. Having the program set up your living situation can go both ways, I have seen people love their host families or love the group in the hostel that they're staying at, or also the complete opposite. I found my own place and it was just as economical and easy. Overall I have good things to say about my experience and would recommend it to anyone!

How can this program be improved?

If I had to change one thing about the program it would be how much they actually pay their teachers, because it's barely a livable wage, and with how much people pay for classes, increasing that hourly amount is definitely possible.

Good experience

5/10

Overall it was a nice experience to learn how to teach English as a second language in another country. The teachers were knowledgeable and the classes were definitely kept interesting each day.

The trainers were often overwhelmed with work and not enough support when needed. They were understanding and gave their advice and expertise on what to expect out there. We needed more support though.

The program in BA definitely needs updated, hands-on materials. They need to update their computers and they need a scanner, a xerox machine and more printers. They had a poor library and needed new resources.

Job placement assistance is always advertised on the website but the program lacks the assistance. You are definitely on your own finding work and knowing how to negotiate.

I always felt safe in the city however, living expenses were practically the same as NYC. The rent was always higher for USA citizens. Unfortunately the period that I went I was not getting income in but spent on living expenses and couldn't on social events. I went broke and went back home.

How can this program be improved?

Have a mentor from Bridge to support you for the year until you are used to the new way of living in a foreign country.

Teach you the do's and don'ts and not allow anyone rip you off in cab fare or in stores etc. To be taught well on how to defend yourself.
