For European students, learning Spanish in Argentina represents something of an adventure due to its distance and distinct Latin American culture. However, some parts of Buenos Aires might seem familiar to European visitors, due to its close links with European settlers in the past. ‘Buenos Aires is the most European city of Latin America, very similar to Paris and also called the Paris of the South,’ says Florencia Bozzano from Íbero Spanish School.
All in all, Buenos Aires offers language travellers the experience of a lifetime, as Florencia observes.’There is much to love about the city, including its renowned nightlife, gastronomical pleasures, cultural pride, welcoming citizens and historical charm.’ she enthuses.
