After a tumultuous past of dictators and military power, it is now one of the most stable countries in the Latin American region. You can travel safely, the infrastructure is well organised and daily expenses are quite affordable compared to expenses in westerns countries. Foreign companies are investing in the country and are opening offices, the working population is highly educated and they can make use of many natural resources. This is why Argentina is now one of the most important economies in South America. The fact that Spanish is spoken within more than 40 countries by over 400 million people worldwide, makes the knowledge of this language an absolute plus for your future employers as well. Because Argentines themselves usually do not speak other languages very well, it can be a great benefit for companies to place an international student. All in all, a perfect option for an internship abroad.
Buenos Aires is one of the most important cities in Latin America. Within the capital of Argentina, life continues 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You will find great architecture, be able to shop endlessly, find the best Tango schools and experience a nightlife like nowhere else. 3 million people live in the city, which spreads out over more than 40 areas (barrios). All barrios have their own atmosphere and culture. If you are after the best Argentine-Italian restaurants you have to be in La Boca, for shopping, check out the wealthier Palermo and for the best art and antiques head to San Telmo with its arty shops. With the citymap of Paris used to build the city, its boulevards, historic buildings and relaxing parks makes Buenos Aires the most European of all cities in South America. Go to the Linguaschools website if you only want to learn Spanish in Buenos Aires without doing an internship or voluntary work program.
