The Spanish for Business program is a 4 weeks intensive program. We emphasize Spanish fundamentals to learn, review, and enhance the students’ abilities for general conversation, thus making business lessons far more effective. You’ll take four hours of small group fundamentals classes daily, followed by a private Spanish for Business class. Your fundamentals class is grouped with students of all disciplines who share your Spanish level.
Classes use a combination of written grammar exercises, listening activities, conversation, debates, songs, games and plenty of chance to speak, speak, speak (and, of course, laugh!!) Your classes will focus on your particular business area, and your professor tailors them to cover specifically what you told us you wanted to learn in your pre-trip evaluation. During these two weeks you’ll visit the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange, and be paired with your Porteño Partner, a local young professional who will meet with you to chat about their work life, answer your questions, and surely ask plenty of their own!
During the afternoon, you will take private Spanish lessons for Business. Together you’ll have the chance to see what a prominent business school is like, with a tour of different universities in Buenos Aires.
