Greetings from Buenos Aires!
It has been an educational and fun-filled eight weeks for our Summer Spanish Language students here at CIEE Buenos Aires. With our students returning, we would like to share with you some of the activities we have participated in.
After two days of orientation and Spanish language testing, students began their classes. While students started at various Spanish-speaking levels, everyone worked hard to make significant advancements. On the second day of orientation, we participated in a traditional Argentine tango class where we learned the basic steps and enjoyed live music. CIEE intensified the cultural immersion course, adding more enriching activities in diverse settings across the city.
City tour by bike
We spent an enjoyable afternoon bike riding through the city during one of our cultural excursions. We visited the old port, Puerto Madero and the ecological reserve, Reserva Ecologica. Riding through the reserve we stopped and relaxed on Rio de la Plata´s coastline. The reserve is centrally located in the city, with beautiful views of the financial district, yet still retains a tranquil environment. We took a break to eat in the old part of the city, San Telmo, located near the famous Casa Rosada and other government buildings.
