Nelida made the lessons entertaining at all times, as well as informative and worthwhile. I learned more than i ever expected in the 2 weeks"

Testimonial of Poul Nielsen, an engineer from Denmark
I spent a month in Buenos Aires in the beginning of January. I never was there before, and it was for me a very positive and interesting encounter with "the Paris of the southern hemisphere". Buenos Aires is a very large cosmopolitan city, where influence from many parts of the world has contributed to that in many ways very special and fascinating atmosphere, which includes Argentine specialities like tango, Carlos Gardel, mate and Evita.
It is really not possible to be bored in Buenos Aires. That overwhelming is the offer of many different cultural activities from milongas for tango dancing and exquisite restaurants to outstanding art exhibitions, theatres and interesting museums.
As a foreign visitor to Buenos Aires it is a great advantage to have certain knowledge to the local language Spanish, which here has developed a special local touch.
If you have time it can be recommended that you reserve a part of the day to do some studies in Spanish. An institute I can recommend for picking up Spanish is Buenos Aires Centre, where you in small classes get a very fine introduction to the language through conversation, reading articles, grammar etc. In this way you learn a lot about the actual economical, social and political situation in the country and the background for the crisis, Argentina ran into a couple of years ago. It is a great advantage to know a little of the language before joining the school.
The school is situated in an elegant and sophisticated neighbourhood and has contact with families in the same area, where you can stay for very reasonably prices. Such an homestay can be recommended. You learn the Argentine way of life and can practice your Spanish, when you are not in school. And I am sure you will come to appreciate the Argentine friendliness and hospitality.
When you have finished school, take your time to make a roundtrip in Argentina organized by Buenos Aires Centre. Argentina has all what a demanding visitor can expect from arctic landscapes to tropical, huge plains to the highest mountains, and you will meet friendly and hospitable people everywhere.
