Study Abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Argentina
Learn Spanish in the most fascinating country in South America! This vast South American country is home to landscapes ranging from the wild and remote Patagonia in the south
to the lively, legendary city of Buenos Aires in the center and to the verdant rain forests of Iguazú Falls to the north. With such varied landscapes and cultural influences, Argentina
promises a rich experience for study abroad.

Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires is the most beautiful city in all of Latin America due to its vibrant culture and heavy European influence. Wander the bustling streets and grand avenues of the city and then explore the numerous historic neighborhoods. Experience the enchanting nightlife that the cosmopolitan city is famous for: tango clubs, cafés and world-class theaters. This is the ideal program for students interested in Spanish immersion and living in Argentina.

University of Belgrano
Study at this prestigious private university founded in 1964 and located in one of Buenos Aires' best neighborhoods. Study Spanish with students from all over the world at Belgrano's state of the art facilities. Classes are taught in Spanish or English. Porteños (people from Buenos Aires) have a very distinct Spanish accent, due to their Italian heritage. Learning Spanish in Argentina will prepare you for speaking Spanish anywhere.
