Cultural visits

Buenos Aires large cultural diversity is one of its main attractions. We continuously take our students to different tourist points of the city, such as Casa Rosada (Argentine Government House)>, The Colon Theater, Tortoni Café, El Ateneo Library, the neighborhoods of Puerto Madero, San Telmo, La Boca, etc. In each of these visits we will be able to observe the surroundings but also to interact with other people, which will enable students to practice real-life situations with native speakers. For example, in Tortoni Café we will be able to practice how to ask for coffee in a role play setting with educational purposes.
