Tips for Students

While Buenos Aires is a wonderful city plenty of fine cafes and restaurants, not to mention parks to wander, many people might feel the need to take a bit of an adventure. And of course take a chance to put some of your lessons at Spanish school at test! Well fear not, because just 45 minute train ride from Buenos Aires lies the beautiful river delta ―Tigre. 

A network of canals and islands dotted with trees, pasture and interesting little houses, Tigre is a must visit for anyone stating for a long period of time, and not so long too. The best part is that it's very easy to reach! Just jump on the train heading to "Tigre" from the Retiro or Belgrano C train stations, and before you know it you'll be jumping off in another world. And this train even uses the same SUBE card as the rest of the city's buses and metro ―it's just a matter of swiping on AND off the train. 

While many people visit Tigre only for a day...

November in Buenos Aires means Spring! Time to exercise, time to relax under the shade of the trees, time to explore...

Here is a list of some relaxing places where you can exercise after your Spanish class at IW Languages.

During daytime

Botanical Gardens: enjoy the shadow of its trees and go "photo hunting" as well.

Bosques de Palermo: walk, run, ride a bike, even take part of a yoga class or go paddle boating. You can do all these and even more at this huge park.

Japanese Garden: Take part of an Anime and Manga contest, watch the tea ceremony or just live its peaceful atmosphere. 

 In the evening

Walk along the streets of Palermo Soho, find art galleries, murals and the lively Plaza Cortazar, also called Plaza Serrano.

Take your first tango steps, join a tango class. It's fun and non expensive.

Go for a beer outdoors.

Eat at a typical bodegon (word to name short menu but big meals at a very accommodated price).

Enjoy Buenos Aires at this time of the year!
