The Association of Language Centers, or SEA, was founded in 1993 in the Adrogue province of Buenos Aires, Argentina. SEA began as an English Language Association, and now encompasses all languages occurring within the province of Buenos Aires including Portuguese, German, French, Italian, and Spanish for foreigners, et.al. Based on a series of prerequisites stating that Expanish upholds a premier level of standards and practices, Expanish appears on the official website as an SEA certified Spanish language school. All language centers associated with SEA work to maintain and guarantee a level of excellence in quality and progress in language instruction. To view the complete list of credentials, guidelines, and the listing for Expanish please visit the SEA website at www.seaweb.org.ar
CEF is the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and is intended to guide many facets of language acquisition, including the planning of language programs, planning of language certification, and planning of self directed learning. The Framework states that programs may be: global, covering all dimensions; modular, concentrated in a particular area for particular purpose; weighted, emphasizing learning in select areas; or partial, learning for a specific purpose (e.g. career). Based upon these objectives Expanish offers a variety of group and individual courses, thereby allowing the student to elect their style of learning program from those outlined in the CEF. www.coe.int

On arrival in BA, students can choose the additional option of an airport pickup, where they will be met at the Buenos Aires International or domestic airport and transported to their accommodation by hired car. We recommend this option as it ensures safe and east transfer from the airport directly to the student’s accommodation.
Alternatively, students can make their own way from the airport. Buenos Aires main international airport is Ezeiza Ministro Pistarini International Airport (EZE) and is 35km from the center of Buenos Aires.

Não tenho dúvidas que fiz uma ótima escolha ao decidir estudar na Expanish, em Buenos Aires. Esta é a minha terceira semana na escola e estou muito satisfeita com a atmosfera do local, a qualidade dos professores e com a atenção que a equipe oferece aos alunos. Além de ser um ótimo espaço para fazer amigos de todo o mundo. Está sendo uma experiência muito rica e satisfatória. Recomendo!

Exspanish is a very nice and also incredibly modern language school with bright classrooms and a very good atmosphere in general. Everyone is really helpful when you have questions or need information. Situated in the center of B.A. it´s close to the most interesting sites. I really loved my classes as we had loads of conversations and discussions so that it never was boring.

Hice dos semanas de curso en nivel avanzado en Expanish hace poco tiempo. Fue mi primer viaje a Buenos Aires y me ha gustado mucho la ciudad y el curso. Los profesores son calificados, y felicito principalmente al que me acompañó por estas dos semanas y que nos introdujo muchas lecturas y con ellas nos aportó mucho de la historia argentina. Y realmente pasaban actividades. Sobretodo tenía tarea para casa todos los días, jajajajajajajaja. Por la tarde tuvimos opciones de actividades, incluso hice un paseo historico muy provechoso y talleres de cine actual argentino. La experiencia de compartir piso con varios extranjeros y la libertad de entrar y salir al horario que quisiera me trajo comodidad para este curso/paseo en esta ciudad hermosa!!!!

The experience that I had at Expanish is part of my life now. I studied there for only 3 weeks but the time was enough to realize that after the nice classes, with great teachers and being helped by a very friendly stuff, my Spanish spoken skills have increased a lot. Now I feel more confident to maintain a conversation in Spanish, thanks for the teachers' help and the spoken activities provided by them. I would really recommend Expanish in Bs.As. as a nice place to learn Sapnish and meet nice people from all over the world. I really want to have a second experience at Expanish!! So guys don't hesitate and go for it!!!!!!

Expanish was a great experience for me, and I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to improve their Spanish while in Buenos Aires. The classes are small, so you can talk one on one with the teacher. For me that was the most important, and the best way to improve my speaking. They also arrange events, and have a really nice, new building in the center of everything.

Spent a GREAT TIME with Expanish in Bs As! Ideal location, right in the heart of the city - hard not to be tempted by Florida, the shopping street is just on the corner! Brand new facilities, friendly atmosphere, many activities in the afternoons to socialise and get to know the place. Small classes make the courses all the more interactive. Teachers really have you speak - a LOT. There's no way you can hide behind your neighbour! Plus the staff is lovely, there's nothing they can't help you with! Now I'm wondering why I haven't stayed there!
