Global Crossroad offers highly affordable Spanish language classes in Argentina. These classes are only for Global Crossroad volunteers participating in our volunteer programs. In Argentina, Global Crossroad partners with effective and respectable Spanish schools. They employ qualified and experienced Spanish teachers that carry out Argentina’s most thorough and valuable Spanish courses. This Spanish program is structured so that volunteers can work within their project and learn Spanish at the same time. Volunteers may take Spanish classes from 9:00-11:00 am, eat lunch and volunteer in the afternoon. Alternatively, volunteers may work in their projects in the morning and take their Spanish classes after lunch from 2:00-4:00 am. Most volunteer projects are located near the Spanish school, so volunteers may easily design their personal schedules. As a Global Crossroad volunteer in Argentina, you will immerse yourself in Argentinean culture and enhance your experience by learning and improving your Spanish.
Argentina Volunteer Program: Room/Food/Supervision
Volunteers in Argentina working in Córdoba will stay with well-screened and respected host family or in a hostel. Each host family is socially respected and already has experience hosting international volunteers. Host families offer a safe home and shared bathroom facilities with running water and a “western” style toilet. Volunteers can do their own laundry at the house or the host family may offer to wash it for a small fee. Your host family will prepare two meals a day for you (breakfast and lunch) that are typical to Argentina. If you are staying in a hostel in Cordoba, meals will not be included and you will be responsible for your own meals.
Volunteers in Buenos Aires will stay in a hostel in a safe and centrally located area. For those staying in hostels, the cost of meals is not included in your weekly volunteer fees, so please budget about $50 a week of you are staying in a hostel. Throughout the volunteer project, Global Crossroad staff will constantly stay in contact with volunteers through either onsite visits or via email/telephone. With longer placements, we visit our volunteers every two weeks (when possible) and volunteers are always welcome to contact the local country coordinator at any time. If project placement is outside the capital city, then our local staff members maintain communication by email and/or phone.
