Study Spanish on the countryside of Argentina, the Pampas. This is the heart of the original Gaucho Culture of Buenos Aires and Argentina
AMAUTA offers the students a unique opportunity to participate in our Spanish Program in different locations: in Argentina, we offer the option to study in the exciting city of Buenos Aires, in the small town of Bariloche – the gateway to Patagonia - and On the typical Argentina countryside at about 85 km's from Buenos Aires at one of the famous estancias of Argentina.
An estancia is a ranch that has been converted into a guest house or hotel. They are generally really beautiful as most are old, elegant mansions. The estancia our Spanish students will be living in is a very nice, traditional and elegant one in colonial style.
All the meals are included during this week, and the Spanish students will enjoy the lovely Argentina cuisine based in the excellent meat Argentina is famous for (also vegetarian option). If you book a week of Spanish studies at the Pampas, also the transfer from Buenos Aires, the Spanish lessons, the accommodation plus the food is all included as well as activities. The Spanish classes will be given by AMAUTA Spanish teachers. After Spanish classes, the students can use the sports facilities, the horses, the games (pool, table tennis, darts) and others. Examples of the complementary activities are: a horseback riding excursion, a visit to San Antonio de Areco, an interactive Argentine cooking class, a hike on the countryside of Argentina.
