Intensive Spanish Plus is a program of a combination of small group Spanish classes and individual lessons for a total of 6 hours per day, 30 hours per week. We offer all levels of Spanish classes starting every Monday, so students can begin a program at any time of the year. Students can choose to take from 1 to 20+ weeks, depending on their specific goals and schedules.
Every Monday year-round
The group classes are 4 hours per day and have an average of 6 students to ensure a personalize experience while also practicing speaking with fellow classmates. Students can practice conversation, engage in group activities, improve sentence structure, and maintain fluency throughout their Spanish learning.
Intensive Spanish Plus starts in the morning at 9am until 1pm with group classes. Then at 2pm each student will have 2 hours of individual lessons. This combination is the best and fastest way to learn Spanish.
We also provide two accommodation options for our students – homestays and shared apartments. A homestay allows students to live with a local family and share meals, which is the best time to practice speaking. In a shared apartment, students would live with at least 1 roommate and possibly other students. They would have their own bedroom and share kitchen, bathroom and other common spaces. Expanish highly recommends one of these options as they help students have an authentic experience in Argentina .
Apart from Spanish classes, we offer an activities program during the week to give you the opportunity to speak Spanish with other Expanish students and native Spanish speakers, learn more about Argentine culture and of course have fun! Many activities are free, like tours, film nights and dance classes, while others have a separate cost, like student dinners and going to a professional fútbol match. We also organize a variety of weekend excursions to different destinations, including the Iguazu Falls , the wine country of Mendoza , and even Uruguay . Combined with your classes, our daily activities will greatly increase your language abilities and you will really get to know Buenos Aires !
Here are some examples of our weekly activities:
- City tours (of different neighborhoods)
- Student dinners
- Fútbol games (both playing and going to see professional games)
- Local concerts
- Asados (Argentine barbecue)
- Tango shows and classes
- Museum and exhibit visits
