summer spanish

  • Buenos Aires high temperatures. Practical advice

    If you are in BA during the summer, this is something you need to know:

    • Avoid outdoors activities and sun esposure from 11 am to 5 pm.
    • Drink a lot of water. Eat light.
    • Wear loose light-coloured clothes. Wear sunglasses and caps.
    • Pay special attention to those who are more than 65 or less than 5 years old.
    • Try to be in cool, well-ventilated places.
  • Your Spanish course. First day

    First day at the school

    Monday morning:

    Although lessons at IW start at 9:30am, on your first day you are expected to be at the school at 9am. Why? Because of the Placement Test.

    The Placement Test will be held before the start of the lessons. We need to know about your Spanish skills to organize your studies. After the Placement Test, you will meet your teacher and the rest of your class. Classes will start at 9:30am. 

    You will have a break around 11:30. Besides taking a rest, you will be offered tea, coffee and small snacks. We will also share relevant information about Buenos Aires: ongoing events, means of transport and so on. 

    And a last word: if the Monday you are supposed to start lessons is a national holiday in Argentina, we will start on Tuesday following this First day program.
