A country-hopping excursion to Uruguay is included! Spend the day discovering the quaint city of Colonia, an hour by ferry, but a world’s apart from Buenos Aires.

Course Details:

80 hours of instruction: 40 hours Fundamentals of Spanish small group sessions, 20 hours customized, one-on-one Spanish for Business classes, 20 hours Spanish for Business small group lessons, role-plays, activities and conversation.

The first two weeks emphasize Spanish fundamentals to learn, review and enhance the student’s abilities for general conversation, thus making business lessons far more effective. You’ll take four hours of small group fundamentals classes daily followed by a private Spanish for Business class. Your fundamentals class is grouped with students of all disciplines who share your Spanish level.

Classes use a combination of written grammar exercises, listening activities, conversation, debates, songs, games and plenty of chance to speak, speak, speak (and, of course, laugh!!) Your individual classes will focus on your particular area of business, and your professor tailors them to cover specifically what you told us you wanted to learn in your pre-trip evaluation.

During these first two weeks you’ll visit the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange, and be paired with your Porteno Partner, a local young professional who will meet with you to chat about their work life, answer your questions, and surely ask plenty of their own!

During the second two weeks, you’ll split your days between private Spanish for Business lessons and small group Spanish for Business classes. You’ll take a class or two outside to a park, sit in a cafe, or just take a trip to the store to keep the learning dynamic. Together you’ll have the chance to see what a prominent business school is like, with a tour of the La Universidad de la Empresa in Buenos Aires.
