  • How apps have changed our Spanish learning

    and whether to use these apps to learn Spanish

    So you've decided to learn Spanish and you don't know where to start? 

    Of course you google how to learn Spanish, and are immediately bombarded with all the latest apps that will help you learn any language in the world in a matter of weeks! Well, I've got good news and bad news for you. The bad news is, unless you're the world's prodigy, you're probably not going to learn a new language in a few weeks. The good news is, language apps can certainly play part in your mission to learn Spanish. There are literally dozens of language apps our there nowadays, but for me the best are still Duolingo (of course) and Lingvist.

  • Why study Spanish in Argentina?

    By Sarah Prather

    Beyond the practical benefits of studying the local language (despite Argentina's thriving tourist industry one cannot always find an English speaker), taking Spanish classes yields a deeper understanding of its rich culture and the natives' unique way of thinking. Even at the most basic level, a traveler can enjoy deeper insight. I had taken a few Spanish classes before coming to Buenos Aires, and will never forget the first thing I learned about the language: "to be" does not translate directly. Spanish speakers distinguish between being in a permanent sense (ser), and being for a limited time or under mutable conditions (estar). This discovery absolutely fascinated me because no native English speaker I know (or speakers of other languages without that distinction, such as French) thinks to differentiate between the two: to us, a thing simply is or it is not. After all, Shakespeare's famous line is "To be or not to be" and not "To ser or to estar".
