CET Argentina

Immerse in Spanish

You’ve taken at least two years of university-level Spanish, and now you’re ready for more. An intensive boot camp starts the program and covers one year—yes, one year—of Spanish in four weeks. You’ll also take electives in Spanish (alongside Argentinian peers if your language level is up for it) and live with a local roommate. It won’t be long before your Spanish language is completely transformed.

Study Social Change

It’s no accident that this program is based in Córdoba. We wanted to create a program where students could learn about social change and activism in Latin America, and Córdoba was the obvious choice. Córdoba has long been an epi-center of grassroots causes, and the social and political movements born here have often spread to the entire region for decades. Study in the city where student activism has sparked reform time and time again.

Local Roommates

Living with a local roommate is about more than just sharing a room. Your roommate can show you where to get the best empanadas, take you to the best local music venues, and teach you Spanish slang. You’ll get an insider perspective on social and political issues…and help with your homework, too. What will you do with your roommate?
