We believe that living with an Argentine family is the best housing arrangement for our students. This gives you the opportunity to integrate into Argentine culture and learn historical context in an informed, personal setting. Living with a host family affords additional language immersion that allows you to learn the kind of Spanish you don't typically learn in the classroom. Almost invariably, the relationship that students develop with these families is a close one and becomes one of the most valuable and cherished experiences of the year. Many students have established long-lasting relationships with their host families and continue to maintain contact later.
The host family will provide breakfast and dinner daily. The program will provide a stipend for lunches.
