“Language is not an abstract construction of scholars or dictionary makers, but arises out of the work, needs, affinities, joys, affections, and tastes of long generations of humanity, and has bases that are broad and low, close to the ground.” (*)
* Noah Webster.
Español en Vivo is a linguistic and cultural voyage, a language program designed to satisfy the curiosity of restless travelers striving to enrich their experience abroad through interaction with people and places. Our clients embrace cultural exchange, preferring to feel like a part of their surroundings rather than mere spectators.
Español en Vivo invites you to learn Spanish while out and about in the city: ordering a coffee, reading the newspaper, strolling through the plaza, or interpreting maps and street signs. Through each itinerary you will acquire new language skills every day, practicing as you get to know the city from the inside out. With authentic materials such as menus, radio shows, popular songs, historical commentaries, and newspaper statistics, you will have the opportunity to not only speak and practice Spanish in real-life contexts, but also better understand the cultural basis of your surroundings.
Using the communicative approach, we embrace Argentine Spanish as the unique cultural expression of a city and its inhabitants.
Español en Vivo uniquely engages with language, culture and history. Where does our journey take place? In Buenos Aires, a charming and eclectic city, full of secrets and stories just waiting to be discovered.
