For those who truly

wants a life-changing

Pursuing an internation-al education at the Uni-versity of Belgrano has proven to be an extremely rewarding experience. Living in the vibrant and energetic city of Buenos Aires, Argen-tina has given me the opportunity to fully immerse myself in a unique cul-ture and truly push myself to better my Spanish language skills. Although the University of Belgrano offers sev-eral intriguing courses in English, I chose from among those in Spanish to challenge myself by expanding upon my knowledge of the Spanish language and learning about Latin American topics in the language. My experience in these classes has thus

far proved to be far more rewarding than I had envisioned. In these classes, I have examined themes, cultural aspects and current issues relating to Latin America as a whole and among the different regions through film, music, and class discussions involving the knowledgeable professors as well as other international students from all over the world. Engaging in this sort of learning environment has enhanced the style of education I feel at I have received by opening my eyes to global perspectives and by challenging myself to express myself in the Spanish language in the ways I would do so in my native language. I highly recommend the inter-national experience offered by them University of Belgrano for those who truly want a life-changing and adventurous educational experience.

My Spanish has Improved Dramatically

My experience at Belgrano University has been nothing but a positive one. First coming here, I was a little nervous to be taking my classes in Span-ish because I’m not fluent and did not know if I would be able to understand the material. However, it has turned out to be the perfect choice. the professors are all really warm and welcoming and are willing to answer any questions or go over anything the students need. My Spanish has improved dramatically and each day it’s becoming easier and I’m learning more. It is also help-ful that all the students in my classes with me are international and we are all in the same situation. they come from all over the world and it has been great to meet new people and form friendships with them which I hope to keep even after the se-mester is over. I do not feel shy to participate in class because I

More than a teacher,

a Friend

From laughs to learning, my month-long intensive Spanish course has been one the most memorable experi-ences of my Argentinean adventure. More than a professor, Josefina was our friend that held 5-hour conversations with us in Spanish. She always

smiled and taught with more enthusiasm than all of my past Spanish teachers combined. More than a class, we evolved into an Argentinean family that played games and made up the best stories. Never once did I lack the motivation to wake up for class. On the contrary, I went to bed looking forward to what the next day would hold. I learned a lot, had fun, and genuinely enjoyed the entire month.

Intensive Spanish

Month in Buenos Aires

the intensive Spanish month started out with a placement exam. this was not a big deal and in no way doomed you to spending the next four weeks in the wrong class. the teachers understand fully that placement exams aren’t full proof and are more than willing to help you get in the right class for your level. Once the class actually started I thought that it would be tough to adjust to five hours of class each day but it wasn’t too long before classes seemed to fly by. It was truly amazing how fast everyone’s Spanish speaking abilities improved in such a short amount of
