Program Notes
Program Description

Sharpen your oral communication skills in Argentina. Classes will be held in downtown Buenos Aires near the presidential residence “La Casa Rosada”, the famous Obelisk, and many other monuments and places of interest. Buenos Aires is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city often described as the “Paris of South America”. Buenos Aires is known for its broad, tree-lined boulevards, outdoor cafes, literary and cinematic traditions, and the world-famous Tango. Argentina displays a wide diversity of environments from semi-tropics and arid deserts to mountain glaciers and snow-capped ranges. Through coursework and field excursions, students will be exposed to the cultural richness of the country and its language, as well its diverse environments and efforts towards sustainability. There will be several field trips and excursions, including a longer overnight trip.

Students will stay with host families in the central part of Buenos Aires, with easy access to the many different neighborhoods, beautiful parks and social life that make the city one of South America’s most interesting urban places. Bedding and linens will be provided, as well as breakfast and dinner daily.

The Program Fee includes accommodations, most meals, all group excursions, in-country transportation and international medical insurance.

The Program Fee does not include airfare to and from Argentina, airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in Buenos Aires. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance. See the Cost section below for estimated airfare.
