The school is situated in a residential area, in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods of Cordoba. This is also one of the city areas more related to education, some of the best schools and an important private university are located here. Downtown is only a 20 minutes bus ride away. But the area has its own facilities, with many banks, shops, malls, restaurants, bars, pubs, cinemas and discos. Our school also has a department that advises and helps the student in tourist, sports, leisure and cultural activities. Information about leisure and cultural activities in the city and how to get to them is offered daily. This department also gives the student all necessary information for learning and practicing alternative sports such as gliding, mountain bike, rappel, climbing and windsurf.

An internship is a learning experience to be developed at a professional setting, for a limited period of time. Interns do not get paid under this type of program. This program benefits not only the intern but also the receiving company/organization: on one hand, you will gain confidence, training, new/specific knowledge through your participation, besides job experience; on the other hand, the company will be enriched by the contribution of experience and knowledge brought from other latitudes.

We carefully select the companies/organizations in order to match both the interns and employer’s interests. We are also in charge of the placement, presentation and follow-up with the intern. Internships include an orientation before the actual experience starts. In order to have a rewarding experience, it is very important and necessary to be aware of the whole context in which you will be working. That is why we include in the program specific classes (introducing the student to historic, economic and social situation in Argentina), besides a personalized follow-up during the experience and the corresponding work accident insurance required by the different companies.

Our personalized attention and constant collaboration enable interns to have a full enriching experience, enhancing your skills and knowledge. The program gives a good platform to improve your Spanish and get involved in our local culture.

We have 2 different options:
- Internships Full Program intends to fulfill most of our participant’s needs. It includes a Spanish Course, high standard accommodation and recreational activities.
- Internships Basic Program has been arranged for those who already have an intermediate/advanced level of Spanish and only wish to apply to our internships service during their stay.

Length: 2 months (minimum), 6 months (maximum). We believe that 8 weeks is the minimum amount of time needed to adapt to a new socio-cultural environment and experience a genuine work immersion.

Requirements to sign up:
- To be over 18
- To be willing and able to adapt to a new environment
- Minimum experience or studies related to the field of work requested
- The level of Spanish required depends on the chosen program. If you opt for our Full Internship Program, you will be able to reach the Spanish level needed. In any case, the level of command of Spanish will be tested through a diagnostic exam and an interview.

Our staff will be constantly in touch in order to find you a suitable placement as well as give advice or guidance, if needed. If you have not yet decided in which field you would like to work in, orientation, according to your personal profile, is available. In both programs (Internships Full or Basic Program) a phone/online interview is required. Throughout our enrollment process we aim to get to know the participant better, in order to find an internship placement that suits your interests and goals.

Our internships will allow you to:
- Acquire work experience in your chosen field
- Get insight into the local culture
- Get involved in a working environment
- Learn and practice Spanish.

Faculty Information:
All our teachers are Argentine, and their mother tongue is Spanish. They are University graduates, specialized and with a wide experience in teaching Spanish for foreigners. It is also important to note their high cultural level, which allows them to have a fluid relation with our students. Most of our teachers have also traveled abroad, and therefore they understand the situation, the needs and the cultural differences of foreigners. The school has a psychology department that guides teachers and allows them to evaluate possible interferences or difficulties that students may have during the learning process or their adaptation to a new social environment. We will give the students a certificate in which the length of the course, the amount of class hours and the level of Spanish attained will be detailed. Our school has an agreement with Blas Pascal University, in which our students may opt for a university certification of their studies.

Other Activities:
Our school offers an exclusive mentoring system that consists in the selection of a person that suits the student characteristics. This person will be in charge of accompanying the students during their stay, helping him/her to orientate around, offering different leisure activities and working as a link with other people form Cordoba. There is also the option of taking tango lessons. Besides this activity, students can go to tango shows or to milongas (tango dancing clubs). Free access to a Sport Club is one of the great advantages of our full immersion program. Tha Sports Club has sauna, solarium, gym classes, yoga classes among other things. During their stay the students will have free access to all the services provided by the Sports Club not only for relaxing and entertainment purposes, but also as an excellent opportunity to meet and interact with Argentine people of all ages. During the weekends students will have a chance to rest and enjoy Cordoba city and its neighboring areas. On one hand, there is the option of a day in the countryside in an “Estancia”, on which you can enjoy different outdoor activities: horseback rides, trekking, typical food, etc.
