Live life to the fullest in a vibrant, cosmopolitan setting - Study Spanish abroad in the classroom and on the streets, tango until you drop, chill out while sipping some mate in the park, and enjoy exploring the colorful markets. We’ll make sure this bustling city of 14 million people feels like home with exceptional activities and staff support. Live in the Paris of South America! - Buenos Aires is considered a European-like city with Latin American flavor. The café culture rivals that of its French counterpart, with the cost of living just a fraction of what you would expect in central Paris. The city’s European-style architecture, great shopping, abundant parks, vibrant nightlife, and gourmet cuisine will make you think you’re across the pond. Various sessions so you can go anytime over the summer - Whether you are hoping to improve your Spanish skills, live in the land of the Tango for a month or more, or just get a quick taste for Latin America while still being able to work when you’re home, we’ve got three sessions to choose from. You can even save up some money for the first couple months of summer then head down to study abroad in Argentina in late July! A great introduction to Latin America - Argentina lies somewhere on the social and cultural scale between Latin America and Europe. That means it’s a great way to see what Latin America is all about, by easing into it. Your experience studying abroad in Buenos Aires could then lead to your further exploration of other parts of Latin America, or you may find you’d rather spend a semester in Europe later on. With CISabroad Summer in Argentina, you’ll get a great introduction to Latin American history, culture and geography through a diverse selection of courses, fun cultural activities and staff that understand how to introduce international students to the place they call home.
