I am a very different person now. More independent, laid back, flexible, creative, culturally sensitive, and I take more time on the things that are important to me. - Drake University View Entire Review

I learned the Spanish language and gained independence. It was so worthwhile! - Saginaw Valley State University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with International Studies Abroad (ISA): Buenos Aires - Latin American Studies
I learned that the world is a large, encompassing place, and that worrying about small things is useless. I learned that to be true to myself I might have to work harder, but I'll be happier. I learned to keep my feet closer together and dance with energy when I move. I learned how to have conversations. - University of Belgrano View Entire Review
I learned to trust more in my own abilities, and I definitely improved my Spanish. And of COURSE it was worthwhile! - Pace University View Entire Review
yes. I just had a blast. Culture isn't that huge.Its just a funny little aspect. - Austin College View Entire Review
YES! It gave me a better view of the world and of the United States and how we are perceived. It also made me more conscientious of others' points of view. I learned to speak conversationally in Spanish (I knew none when I arrived). My experience has made me want to live abroad when I graduate. - University of Kentucky View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and got to learn an entire new culture and feel part of a new country. - University of California - Berkeley View Entire Review
Studying abroad was the single best experience of college. - Arizona State University View Entire Review
In addition to my language skills acquired abroad I also gained more respect for cultures that differ from our own. It was very refreshing to find out that there are other ways of living and that people can do it without a problem. - University of Nebraska- Lincoln View Entire Review
YES. I learned spanish!! - University of Michigan - Ann Arbor View Entire Review
100% I am incredibly happy I decided to study abroad and with ISA. The program gave me the support I needed for being away from home for so long and provided a backdrop that improved my Spanish (and more importantly my confidence in my Spanish), provided the opportunity to travel, and overall, made me into a more culturally awar... - University of North Dakota View Entire Review
It was okay, but if I were to go back, I wouldn't go with a program. Instead, I would take language classes on my own and go with a religious organization. It was definitely a challenging experience. On the other hand, I had a ton of great experiences and opportunities to travel all over South America! It was worth it, although ... - University of Nebraska- Lincoln View Entire Review
The reason I travel is to learn about new cultures, and to broaden my horizons and get out of my comfort zone, and to grow as an individual, I definitely accomplished that goal. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and my ability to be on my own. I also learned a lot about others, and how to work with them in different situations. The experience was 110% worthwhile. If I could, I would do it again in a heartbeat. - The College of New Jersey View Entire Review
Language experience, independence, friends and contacts - Western Washington University View Entire Review
Past Review Great
I realized how isolated Americans are in terms of international knowledge and gained many other insights as well. The whole experience was definitely worth every penny. I miss Argentina every day. - University of Florida View Entire Review
I learned more about the culture of Argentina and was able to partake in many aspects of the culture. I learned more about myself. I became more independent and more patient. My language skills improved considerably, or at least I feel like they did. They're not as good as they could be, but... I'm pleased. It was defini... - Longwood University View Entire Review
Past Review Go Study Ba
Studying abroad is always worth while. It is what you make it and being in another country, another culture and learning a new language can only help strengthen who you are. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
I learned more about myself (strengths & weaknesses, about their culture, and my culture. I learned about how to adapt to another culture and to be flexible and be thrown into a completely foreign context and adapt. - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
Knowledge of a foreign city. Knowledge of a foreign language. - Westminster College, PA View Entire Review
Improved Spanish, saw cool places. - Brigham Young University View Entire Review
Yes. While I was there I experienced a broad range of emotions (like everyone I suppose), with a lot of them being negative. The fact that my girlfriend and I were going through hard times made it that much harder for me. I set unrealistic expectations for myself and so was disappointed when I didn't achieve some of them. It... - Texas A&M - College Station View Entire Review
I gained so much from my study abroad experience - I learned so much more than just what I studied in class; my eyes were opened to a different world view from experiencing another culture in that way, especially for such an extended period of time on my own. My experience deepened my love for travel, for language, and for Lati... - University of Georgia View Entire Review
I have a much higher appreciation for american school systems and work ethic in general but also a great respect for cultures that make meals and fun time essential parts of the day that are taken seriously. - University of North Carolina - Wilmington View Entire Review

I appreciated having a window into how this culture lived and operated. I made some lifelong friends, and saw some incredible wonders of the world. I learned Spanish, which is something I can use in my interaction and further exploration of the world. - University of Utah View Entire Review

About

Buenos Aires (pop. 13 million including suburbs) is well-known for its cultural diversity and lively atmosphere, making it one of South America's most exciting and vibrant cities. The city's history revolves around Western European immigrants whose influences can be seen all throughout the city in its architecture, art and style. Although Buenos Aires is historically unique, it has also adopted some more modern architectural styles, which provide a notable contrast to the city's deep-rooted traditions and history.

Buenos Aires holds countless opportunities for students to experience Argentine culture. Students can attend soccer games, world-class theatrical and dance performances, and participate in a vibrant nightlife. Many students will find themselves intrigued by the unique Argentine accent and the national dance, the Tango. Students are sure to witness tango performances throughout the city's streets, cafes, and theaters.

Students in Buenos Aires will benefit from the support of the ISA on-site office. Resident staff members will assist students with travel information, volunteer and internship opportunities, and tutoring.
