Learn Spanish in Argentina

This country is a melting pot of European and Latin American culture, full of natural beauty and home of the seductive tango. It is also the birthplace of skilled horse riders who developed their own way of horseback riding and the best polo players.

While you stroke around its capital, Buenos Aires, the strong European influence pokes from the architecture and international music and art festivals.

In small Argentinean cities you are going to meet friendly people always happy to talk to you in Spanish. You will also experience History "alive" in old pubs meeting the Gauchos and in outstanding silversmith and rawhide plaiter workshops. Last but not least strolling down the green and peaceful streets.

After your master your Spanish, you could travel around the country discovering the stunning beauty of its landscapes in Patagonia, Iguazũ Falls, Quebrada de Humauaca and Mendoza. And then you can tour around Latin America speaking with the locals in their own language.

My courses combine conversational Spanish classes with real-life activities with native speakers outside the classrooom. Every week, after communication-oriented lessons, you will put your Spanish into practice in the most stimulating situations speaking with the locals in Spanish, coached by me.

Because I know how students can be motivated or discouraged by different activities to learn a language, I will tailor your course based on your interests, your goals and your own pace of learning and you can do activities you enjoy in Spanish such as:

  • learning horseback riding
  • tasting Malbec wines
  • visiting the silversmith's workshops and museums
  • buying groceries and cooking traditional food
  • learning to play polo
  • hit balling for experienced riders
  • ordering your polo outfits
  • dancing salsa or folk music
  • ordering food and drinks fluently
  • clothes and shoe shopping

In only one week you will understand and speak with the locals!

I use authentic material and you will be reading newspapers and magazines, watching films, singing songs and role-playing on my lessons. Through the understanding and speaking of the real Spanish you will grasp the Argentinean culture and learn a lot about this country.

My experience, passion and care for teaching has led me to give you real-life Spanish courses. And when we come together, it is amazing what we can accomplish! You are going to learn Spanish easily and naturally!

Thanks to Living your Spanish I really am living my dream - it proved to be everything and more! At 37 I had tried and failed to learn a language so many times and had all but given up - I was sure that trying to move to Argentina and speak the language would be impossible.

Within one hour of chatting with Patricia she had totally understood my learning style (more than I or any teacher even had) and tailored everything around it. I was skeptical at first as wasn't the long vocab lists and sterile tables I was used - but she opened a whole new world. She got me speaking immediately, it was interactive, she boosted my confidence, made lessons fun; music, readings on Argentine philosophy and history which she knew I enjoyed, clear diagrams showing verb structures linked to everyday phrases so they became real and exercises that I needed for homework as she knew this helped me learn. She just got me.

I guess with so much experience Patricia knows what works for each student. Trust her, enjoy and come and learn Spanish in my new home town! Seriously the coolest place to learn a language ever, I couldn't leave!

The Spanish lessons were a great development for my Spanish speaking, listening, and reading. Beside only the language aspect, I have also learned a great lot about the Argentinian culture by going to museums and walking through town with Patricia. The combination of those two aspects of the course makes it a fun and effective way to learn Spanish. Coming from a Spanish-minded background without haven been able to speak Spanish myself, solely understand properly, I can now make myself understandable in day-to-day life. By having concluded that I have reached my goal.

Points of improvement, for me personally, would be to broaden my Spanish to the maximum and not having to think for more than 3 seconds before being able to speak. The course was perfect in my eyes, since I really enjoyed studying it.

I would definitely recommend ‘Living Your Spanish’ to my acquaintances and friends. It is a course you really bond with; I hope I will be able to go back once in order to further improve my Spanish. Unfortunately, besides the holidays I am too busy with university. If I were not I would definitely continue classes. Perhaps in a future holiday again. As I said, I really liked the combination between language and culture of this course. Mentioning especially, by using Spanish in real life situations you learn much more than you do in a classroom. Making the learning experience also more amusing, since afterwards I laughed about my mistakes.
