Discover Argentina’s dynamic culture and active lifestyle as you make friends and become a part of the community. This eight-week summer study in Argentina offers you the chance to develop your Spanish skills in a learning environment that is completely different from anything an American classroom could offer. By staying with a host family and attending a local high school, you’ll be immersed in daily life and experience the many layers of this diverse culture. Because the program falls during winter break (remember, seasons are flipped in South America), you can spend a few weeks getting to know your host family while school is out. By the end of the two months, you’ll have gotten a taste of life-changing international education.
Things to know about Argentina

If you like to relax, you’ll enjoy the traditional afternoon siesta, when many people come home from work or school to eat lunch and take a quick nap. Argentina is a diverse country, with immigrants and foreign students from all around the world; you might hear Italian, German, or even Korean as well as Spanish.
