 Learning a new language is not easy; it requires a considerable investment of time and money. 

 That is why when choosing where to study a language, you should have as much information as possible, in terms of not only prices or study plans, but you should also know the experiences of those who have already gone through this search process. 


One of the most relevant languages in the world is Spanish. It represents the native language of almost 500 million people and is spoken in 21 countries around the globe. In addition to its region of origin, Spain, this language is native to the inhabitants of South America and Central America, except in Brazil, where Portuguese is spoken.


If you intend to learn Spanish, you should consider the advantages of learning this language in contact with the cultures that speak it. Taking a course for a few hours a week is not the same as having to interact personally and constantly with the language for a while.


This is why the tendency to study Spanish in cities where the language is spoken grows every year.


Tips for choosing the city where to study Spanish


If you have already decided to go on a trip to learn this popular language, what you have left to do is determine in which city it is convenient for you to study it. Here a series of factors come into play that you should seriously consider: course prices, cost of living in the city and, an essential aspect, the cultural exchange the town can offer you.


Learning Spanish in Buenos Aires is the preferred choice for travelers, and this has to do with the fact that in this city, many of the factors just described are consistent with what a student is looking for.


The level of Spanish schools is excellent, and there are institutions with a long history. The prices of the courses are accessible, in the same way as the cost of a house and the daily expenses. However, one of the determining factors for which most students choose this city is the exchange and cultural diversity it offers. 


One of the most popular options to learn Spanish in Buenos Aires is Expanish. In this Spanish school, the courses are practically tailored to the students, so it can be handy if you still do not know the system that best suits your needs.


In this institution, you can take a small online test to determine your level of Spanish and the appropriate course for your group.


They also have beneficial services for beginner travelers by offering various accommodation programs. You can choose to live with a family from the region, share an apartment with other school members or directly rent an apartment just for yourself.


However, not all these benefits are the only ones that determine the popularity of this school; what its students and graduates highlight the most is the community that the staff generates with the students and how that community interacts in culturally enriching extracurricular activities.


This city is full of history and cultural activities that will allow you to nurture your knowledge of the language in key cultural aspects: music, painting, contemporary art, architecture, literature, and sports, among many other things.


Theaters, concert halls, historic buildings, large green spaces, skyscrapers, bars, tango schools, and distinct neighborhoods, this is a city where it is impossible to get bored.


Buenos Aires is also a gastronomic pole par excellence; therefore, you will be able to share culinary experiences and nurture your vocabulary through contact with the culture of the most significant capital in the region.


The importance of sharing all these cultural activities that the city offers lies in the fact that you can absorb the dialect of the language in this region, taking into account the local uses and expressions with their grammatical peculiarities.


Rest assured that you will learn the language and have a very enriching experience in other aspects.


Educational exchanges in other countries


These experiences will change how you perceive the language and culture of the country where you travel. However, to enjoy this exchange as much as possible, you must consider important logistical and administrative aspects.


First, you should find out what type of documentation you need to enter the country you are traveling to and remain a student in it.


Not all countries have the same policies regarding the documentation required for international students, so you should be well informed.


You should also check the procedure to rent an apartment because you do not have the documentation generally requested from that region's citizens to make a rental contract.


You should also take into account the issue of health. You cannot travel without having medical insurance that you can go in case of any unforeseen event. This factor is fundamental and will require a significant investment of research time.


Finally, check if the institution resolves any of these aspects where you will study your Spanish course. There are services to manage all these procedures, and you can probably delegate some of these tasks.


Investigate in the community of students who have already carried out this experience what were the logistical steps they followed to have all these aspects covered correctly. Likely, many of these processes are already standardized, and you can clear any doubts with graduates or students of these courses.


You can start planning your new academic and cultural adventure with all this information. Collect all the information, organize your goals and priorities, hire a course according to your needs and enjoy Buenos Aires!


When you return to your country, you can tell your family and friends everything you experienced but in Spanish.
