Do you want to see the best of Argentina, while having a true cultural experience while developing your knowledge of the Spanish Language and that of your children? Our Spanish school organizes a Spanish for Family program that is designed so that everyone in the family has a fantastic time on holiday in Argentina, in "the city of the cities", Buenos Aires, full of interesting activities and places to visit for all ages! As every family is different, this program is custom designed.
A sample program might see the whole family going on outings, or visiting musea and other interesting sites in the morning. Some example include the famous Kids Museum in El Albasto (Museo de los Ninos), or the "Museo de los Titeres" in San Telmo, the zoo in Palermo, one of the many, many green parques in Buenos Aires or the famous theatre the Opera, suitable for all ages. And, what about a TANGO DANCING WORKSHOP for the whole (or part of the) family??
In the afternoon, mom and dad would have Spanish classes at their level while the children will have their own Spanish teacher and a specially designed kid's class. This class is bright, interesting and colorful and children study from a range of fun materials including videos, music and children's books in Spanish. There are also several activities out of the classroom included in this program, e.g. visiting a nearby local market, or a handcraft shop. This class is totally adapted to the age range of your children and is suitable for children 6 through to 17, though probably not in the same class. If you have children under 5, they can be cared for during the afternoons by a professional nanny; if you want to stay for a longer period of time in Buenos Aires we can also help you to register your kids on a local or international school in Buenos Aires.
We also offer the option to include including some cultural workshops in your program. Our school organizes not only tango dance classes but also painting, theatre, music and others. Most families also include volunteer work for all or some family members: you can help and assist in an orphanage, where the kids are happy with your visit and care.
A special range of kid-friendly excursions can also be planned for the weekends, based on more traditional tourism options, but specially catering for the age and level of your children. Why not arrange for the whole family to venture out to Rosedal Lake, or Tigre, or the Zoo in Palermo, or to one of the famous estancias around the village of San Antonio de Areco? A visit to Mataderos on Sunday is also a great way to learn more about life in rural Argentina and the local gauchos. Creative craft workshops can also be organized where children can play traditional Argentine instruments, learn how to dance Tango or have a blast working with leather crafts. Whatever your family enjoys doing, there is plenty to choose from making this a wonderful and life enriching experience for all. Buenos Aires offers endless options to "breath" culture: the city is full of festivals, theatre, dance, movie or cinema. Buenos Aires is an interesting cultural experience for the whole family.
If you have some time left after your Spanish program, the rest of Argentina provides for impressive natural scenery and the kids will love some skiing, rafting, trekking, or visit the waterfalls of Iguazu, or the pinguins in Península de Valdés, just to mention a few. The options in Buenos Aires and Argentina are endless!
