Learn Spanish, Teach English, in Argentina!

September 13th, 2007 · 2 Comments

GIC Argentina’s program where you can learn Spanish in Argentina sure looks tempting. The deal is – you spend some time in Argentina, either teaching English, or participating in an outreach program, in one of the many volunteer programs in Argentina.

So you volunteer in Argentina, and in exchange, you can learn Spanish, in situ. The program is not entirely limited to Argentina, in fact, you can volunteer in South America, including in Misiones and Iguazu National parks. It sounds like the perfect thing to do between academic programs, or after college. You have to be at least 18 years old to participate in the program. The minimum time commitment required is 2 weeks, though, of course, a longer period of time might be more beneficial. The best of both worlds is if you can make it in winter. You can get away from the cold and immerse yourself in Latin American culture, and learn Spanish the natural way. I wish I had looked up something like this and taken a year off after college.
