Other comments: The accommodation was not good! Indeed lovely and well located, but no working heating (very cold!). The other roommates had nothing to do with the school, i.e. you had little contact with other classmates, which was actually the purpose of the shared apartment! Scruffy apartment, moldy fridge. Not worth it. At least for the price!
The activities after school time. Learned a lot about the city of Buenos Aires and Argentina and since traveling alone, it was really great to have a lot to do after school time

Other comments: Very nice and attentive staff. Always help no matter what it may be. I wanted to browse, to see Boca Juniors. It arranged the academy too :-) Expensive, but top
Excellent teachers, and the admin team are very friendly and helpful. I’ve made really good progress in just 5 weeks starting from nothing.
