a young doctor from

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"

We have received these testimonials about the Spanish Language learning experience in our school.
Testimonial of Misti Lipe, a very nice and young student from Chicago, United States. She is Manager of Arc Worlwide.
I understand you are considering studying at Buenos Aires Centre for a language program, I am excited to share with you about my experience.
I studied Spanish there in December. Spanish was my minor in college and I have had the desire to do a language program to brush up on my skills since graduating nearly ten years ago. I contacted Nélida Gómez Vila (Nelly) through her web site and received a prompt and professional response. She accommodated my schedule without much notice and found a home stay for my visit.
My courses there were wonderful. I learned so much about Argentina, the culture and above all, the Spanish language. All are excellent teachers with a knack for assessing ability levels and customizing the courses to help their students learn as much as possible. Nelly s also a warm and accommodating person. The school is very helpful with arranging taxis, weekend trips and any other special requests students may have.
I was able to substantially improve my Spanish skills through my courses there. I was at the intermediate level when I started, but had lost quite a bit of my vocabulary and grammar. My teachers were able to refresh many of the skills I had lost and give me the confidence to use my Spanish again.
The facilities at the school are adequate. There are three separate classrooms, a reception area, a kitchen, full bathroom and a terrace. There are computers in the school and telephones. The facility is modern and convenient with an elevator and a secure door at the front of the building. There are several cafes, a book store, banks and all that you would need within a block of the building.
Nelly and the Buenos Aires Centre arranged a home stay for me in a very convenient location- Plaza San Martin - walking distance to the school, the train station and many popular sites. I stayed in the apartment of a single Argentine woman, which was clean and secure and provided a comfortable place to stay.
Argentina is an incredible place to study. I love the culture, the food, the people, the music, and their dialect. I feel fortunate to have made the decision to study in Buenos Aires and it is an honor to recommend Nelly and the Buenos Aires Centre. I now feel like I have friends in Argentina and I cannot wait to go back. I hope to do a language program with Buenos Aires Centre again soon. I welcome the opportunity to elaborate on my experience or answer questions. Please feel free to contact me anytime. My email address is email@example.com and my cell phone is 541-941-5870.
