Expanish

But I am not in Buenos Aires solely for being a tourist! I take Spanish classes in the morning at the Expanish language school, in the center of Buenos Aires. My classmates are really nice and the teacher as well. We have a few other Swiss, a French, an Italian, an American, and two Germans. Actually, there are almost only Swiss and Brazilians in the school! I think I will steadily progress in the next few weeks; at least the Argentinian accent came really quickly!!

When we arrive at the school on the first day, we have to take a little written exam and to talk a bit to a teacher so as to evaluate our level. It seems that they are quite effective in doing so as my classmates more or less all have the same level. The school also organizes several free cultural activities such as courses about the history of Buenos Aires or the history of Tango as well as activities in town or in the parks.
