Academia Buenos Aires


Academia Buenos AiresAcademia Buenos Aires offers Spanish courses on all levels, from beginners’ levels to very advanced and even Spanish teacher training courses. The school is located on Plaza de Mayo, on the top floor of a recently restored historic building in heart of the old city of Buenos Aires, just next to the famous San Telmo district. The most interesting parts of the city are in the immediate surroundings of the school. We are ideally located within the public transport network, with three subway lines ending here.

Since the foundation of the school in 2004, Academia Buenos Aires has grown to become one of the leading Spanish language schools in Latin America, with about 800 students per year . We are recommended by most of the major guidebooks (for example Lonely Planet, Footprint) and most of all, by our former students.


Three fundamental principles guide our work: academic excellence, complete immersion, professional service.

Academia Buenos Aires has an excellent academic track record. Every year we participate in international seminars and workshops, we produce and edit our own study books and offer teacher training courses for teachers around the world, both online and offline. We have been certified by Tandem International® and SEA, the Argentine language school association. Our courses are recognized as “Bildungsurlaub” in most parts of Germany.

Complete immersion is an important part of language learning. It is well known that standalone Spanish classes are not as effective as Spanish classes in a context of permanent cultural immersion. That’s why we suggest that our students enrich their learning experience by participating in our extracurricular activities, almost daily and free of charge, and by sharing daily routines with an argentine host family in a homestay arrangement. Families and other living arrangement are carefully managed by our school, as we believe that this is a critical factor for making the difference between a good and an excellent overall experience.

We offer professional service in a relaxed and pleasant environment. Our team assists and orients our students during their entire stay with us. If you want to spend a weekend travelling, we will help you plan your trip. Indeed, we make sure they feel comfortable and attended from the very first contact until the end of their stay. We speak quite a few languages (Spanish, English, German, French, Italian, Portuguese and Modern Greek) and will do our utmost to make yours a pleasant experience.
