In an ever-shrinking world, the need for multi-lingual individuals is greater than ever. Learning a language in its native environment has proved time and time again to be the best and most enjoyable way of learning a language, as you are hearing and speaking it in its true cultural context. Benefit from being surrounded by native speakers and utilising what you learn in real life conversations and situations. Being surrounded by the culture of the country will also help to give you an insight into the nature of the people of Argentina, and will confirm their reputation as some of the most open, warm-hearted and passionate people found in the world.


Spanish is fast becoming one of the most useful languages in which to gain proficiency, partly because it is so widely spoken in the fastest growing economies of the modern world. Studying for around four hours a day in group seminars, and one-on-one sessions with native speakers, will really boost your fluency and language skills. You will then have plenty of opportunities to practise your conversational Spanish with local students and other Argentines. The language sessions combine a range of teaching styles and resources, giving you a thorough and fully comprehensive learning experience. Your free time is yours to do with as you wish, whether you prefer to simply soak up the cosmopolitan atmosphere of Buenos Aires, or try something more active and book dance lessons in one of the many traditional style bars and clubs. After your project, you could witness the fascinating sight of the gauchos, traditional Argentine cowboys, by visiting one of the cattle ranches, or try horse riding along one of the magnificent white sandy beaches for a taste of the bracing coastal air. If you fancy visiting the rugged scenery of Patagonia, then take a tour to this intriguing part of South America.


You will be met at the airport by the project staff and taken to your placement.


You will be staying in a shared volunteer/student house.


You will receive lunch every day that you are at the community centre, but will be responsible for purchasing and preparing other meals. Your accommodation will have facilities enabling you to do this, or you can take the opportunity to sample some of the numerous cafes and restaurants in the city. Argentina is well known for its good food, and in particular the fantastic local produce. You may like to venture out into the city and try some of the food on offer in local restaurants and market stalls. If you are a meat eater you might like to try a steak, which are world renowned! Buenos Aires certainly has a lot to offer the eager explorer, and the bustling street stalls and colourful markets beckon you to immerse yourself in this wonderfully diverse culture. Look out for some delicious meat dishes, such as beef cooked ?asado style?, or parillo, which is grilled sausage served with salad. Empanadas are also a national favourite ? these half-moon shaped pastries can be filled with a range of ingredients such as meat and vegetables. If you have a sweet tooth, then Dulce de Leche will be right up your street! Specific diets and vegetarians can be accommodated.


Based in Argentina's most exciting city, you will use public transport or walk your way around the streets, absorbing the sights and sounds of this Latin hub. Your local coordinators will be happy to help you master the public transport system and in no time you'll be making your way around like a porteno. Your journey to your work placement could take up to an hour but is all part of the cultural immersion you will enjoy while on your project, seeing everything through the eyes of a local.

You'll need to buy appropriate travel insurance covering your participation on the project. You won't be able to go without the right travel insurance so double check to avoid disappointment. Please make sure that you're covered for the whole duration of your trip – from the day you leave the UK to the day you return.

We recommend that you obtain cover for your baggage and personal effects.

Frontier Partner Projects and Frontier group projects are run in partnership with in-country NGOs, small community based organisations, local research institutes, academic organisations and conservation agencies. Project descriptions and information are supplied directly by our partners or field staff and are accurate at time of publishing.

We aim to keep information up to date and accurate, however, the nature of our projects and in particular the fact that they are constantly evolving and developing in response to changing needs means that project activities, travel schedules, tour itineraries and daily timetables can change overnight and without notice.
