Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, is the second-largest capital city in South America and has more than 4 million people. It is famous for tango, fashion, steak, history and friendly people. They say that arriving in Buenos Aires is like jumping onto a moving train. The vibe throughout the entire city is one of energy and rhythm. This cosmopolitan city is regarded by many as “the Paris of South America” because it has such a great selection of high quality museums, galleries, theatres, and film festivals. There is a sensation of adventure in the air that continuously leaves travellers wanting more.
Argentina has many unique advantages as a study abroad destination. Here are 6 reasons why you should consider studying abroad in Argentina:
1. Learn Spanish
Whether it is your intention to learn Spanish or not, you can’t help but pick it up and use it during your time in Argentina. Take advantage of being immersed in this incredibly widespread and useful language. Immersion is simply the best method for learning a language. Now is the time to do it!
2. Food and Drink
Argentina has many gastronomic delicacies, from traditional dishes to international cuisine. The Argentinean wine industry is also growing, and there are many opportunities to try some of Argentina’s home-grown wines, like the fantastic red wines produced from Malbec grapes.
3. Culture, Culture, Culture
There are so many cultural things to see and do in Argentina; you’ll be hard pressed to do everything before it’s time to leave. Whether you’re interested in museums, architecture, or learning to tango, you’ll never be at a loss for something to do.
4. Cost of Living
As you may expect, many things are available for much cheaper than you would be able to find them at home. Prices of basics are very affordable for students, which leaves you with a bigger budget to travel and see the sights.
Much of South America is accessible from Argentina, and travel to other parts of the continent is much cheaper since you’re already there. After completing your Argentina study abroad experience you’ll have lots of nearby and accessible places to travel and explore. Make the most of your time before heading home!
6. Friends in New Places
Forge life-long friendships with your fellow students. Practice your Spanish, have a pen pal (or pen pals) when you get home, and maybe even have a place to stay if you visit Argentina in the future!
