Arriving in any city is a daunting experience, especially if you barely speak the language and the city is one as big as Buenos Aires! However my mind was immediately put to rest upon arriving at Elebaires. Everyone made me feel so welcome and went above and beyond to make sure that all of my questions were answered (I had a lot!) It is not often that you arrive somewhere and immediately feel fully integrated, but that is what Elebaires succeeds in doing.
The combination and lessons and marketing work in the afternoons suited me perfectly and I really enjoyed writing blogs and keeping Elebaires’s social media updated. My four hours of lessons a day have left me feeling confident and satisfied with the huge improvement that I feel I have made since arriving in September. Classes were always fun and the constant stream of new students meant that there were always new faces around and interesting stories to hear!The activities each week were a great way to see the city and with Martin as our tour guide it meant that I found out so much more about the city than I would have on a conventional tour!
I am now at the end of my three month internship and although I am sad to be leaving, I now feel confident enough in my Spanish to be able to tackle the next test – finding a job! Thank you to everyone at Elebaires for such an unforgettable experience!
