Unique experiences, unforgettable moments and an unlimited territory to explore. Discover the many cultures within Argentina, a country full of history and magic!

In this 3 week Global Prep programme you will learn about historic and modern human rights issues in Argentina alongside intensive language classes and academic workshops.

You will spend half the day in an intensive Spanish course and the other half with lectures and visits to understand the context of human rights in Latin America. Yo will also get a chance to escape the city at a local gaucho ranch to ride horses and have a traditional Argentine barbecue.

Your Accommodations

You’ll experience Argentina’s gregarious culture first-hand by staying with a local host family in the Buenos Aires area. All host family homes will be located no more than 40 minutes from the language school where you’ll have classes. You can expect to have your own private bedroom or share a room with one other student. Your host family will provide breakfast and dinner each day, so you’ll get to try some staples of the Argentine diet, which might include savory empanadas or delicious milanesa, a type of breaded meat cutlet with an Italian influence. You may be surprised by how close you can get to your host family in just two weeks, and how much they’ll be able to deepen your understanding of life in Argentina!
