Things You Can Do When You're Studying In Argentina Schools
Who ever said you should bury yourself in books and studies once you're out of the country studying Spanish? Studying Spanish in Argentina schools is a once in a lifetime opportunity that needs to be taken seriously, yes. But Argentina is also this beautiful, exotic, city that is steeped in history and culture and you really cannot say you have completed your education without seeing its beauty.
For instance, you can spend weekends visiting the breathtaking sites of Quilmes ruins and enjoying the views and trekking the surrounding area. Or if you feel like going on a road trip, you can traipse on to Buenos Aires for a little weekend shopping spree. During quiet Sundays, you can check out some antiques sold at the markets of San Telmo and tour the Evita museum.
But if you are more of the enterprising kind, why not offer English language tutorials? If you have been in Argentina a few months, it may be a good idea to start offering English language tutorials to school age kids living in your neighborhood. You can teach English while you in turn are trying to learn Spanish in Buenos Aires. Better yet, you can offer your tutorial services to the parents of these kids you got to know.
You do not have to charge an arm and a leg for the lessons, keep that in mind, but you at least would have something to do during weekends. If you won't be seeing the rest of beautiful Argentina anyway, you might as well do something productive.
Prior to shopping or sightseeing and partying or tutoring school age children in Argentina, you have to keep a few things in mind first. First of all, you need to get accepted for the study abroad program. Before you can even enroll for Spanish classes in Buenos Aires, you need to learn about all the requirements you have to submit to get accepted for the program.
Apart from carefully studying all of the requirements for the program, you need to decide if studying out of the country is something you really want to do. Other than the fact that studying out of the country is wonderful and truly is a once in lifetime opportunity, it is also a challenge not all students will be up to; one that requires one hundred percent commitment. So take the time to learn more about the programs before you make up your mind.
