- Amazing experience!06/30/13
I had an incredible experience in Buenos Aires. I got really close with the family that I lived with, who I loved, and also had so much space to adventure and explore the city. Buenos Aires is such an eclectic, fantastic, fun city and IES really helped
me have such a great experience there- through them, I met so many great people, enjoyed a lot of planned excursions, learned about the history and context in my classes, and improved my Spanish by a ton!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
- Best way to travel, best way to study06/30/13
Studying abroad in Buenos Aires with IES was one of the most enjoyable and lasting experiences I've had in college. Paradoxically, although the demand of the classes in terms of grade rewards are moderately low, I felt that my semester accounted for some
of the most important and accelerated learning processes I've had in college; helping me to drastically improve my spanish, my knowledge about Argentina, and widen my perspective on both my and my country's placement in world relations and history. My classes are each amazing, the staff at the program couldn't be more lovable and available, and I have fallen in love with life in Buenos Aires and other parts of South America. I'm just itching to get back. As a side note, it's still difficult for me to give recommendations regarding housing. I lived in the Entis residence hall and loved it, but I also feel as if I would have loved a home-stay. The only complaint I had is that my first roommate was an amazing Brazilian student who taught me most of my spanish, but my next two spoke english so my improvement slowed from there. But there are also plenty of other students there from other parts of Argentina or South America to speak to in spanish, so it's still available to speak Spanish in the hall. It's just luck-of-the-draw in terms of roommates.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
