Spanish Immersion in Argentina

J-Term 2018

This course is designed to provide students with three weeks of immersion experience in Argentina to learn more of its language and culture.

We will stay with a host family in the capital city of Buenos Aires, taking language classes with a focus on Argentine Spanish, and participating in different cultural activities such as local cuisine, Argentine film, tango dance, and site visits to the many attractions in the city. During the weekends we will travel to nearby areas, such as San Antonio de Areco, for a day in the country, as we read fragments of Don Segundo Sombra, and experience the gaucho life style.
