Our Spanish courses stand out from any other Spanish school in Buenos Aires because we combine dynamic material with a chance once a week to go out with a member of the Milhouse team members to practice your Spanish "in the real world". You will need to ask directions, buy some coffee etc, and try your best to use what you’ve learnt so far. Milhouse is fun, and our Spanish lessons are no different. You don't just learn the words, you learn to speak and communicate in Spanish with locals, neighbours, and your new Argy friends. And the best thing is that it works! Our teachers - professional, young and friendly people - teach you handy stuff during in-house lessons to later apply and practice what you’ve learnt during visits around the city to cultural and leisure venues.
This is an example of one week's language lessons that gives you a general idea on what you can expect from your stay. There are 4 hours of lessons daily (in two blocks: morning/afternoon) five days a week with up to 7 students in the class. The longer your language course, the more in-depth and detail-oriented the lessons will get. There is an informal meeting every week where you will have an opportunity to talk with the Milhouse team about your Spanish lessons. On days when the class is conducted outside, all expenses such as coffees, drinks, food, bus/metro tickets, museum tickets and some taxi rides, will be paid in cash by the students.
