We care about their individual needs, interests, tastes and profile.

We offer our visitors options seminars and courses where they can gain university credits, volunteer work if that is their field of interest, specialized Spanish,

All our courses include music, tango classes, national festivals, carnival, night-life options, Spanish & trekking, Spanish & Surfing as options for our students among other captivating offers!
