Spanish language school close to any flamenco action

Hello all

I am planning to go to South America from mid January to mid March. I intend to take Spanish classes somewhere. Any suggestions? This is my "wish list" to narrow things down:

- prefer Uruguay or Argentina

- school not full of college grads

- so attended by middle aged fuddy duddies like me (38yrs)

- close to flamenco school (not tango or salsa though that would be nice too).

I've been learning flamenco for about 10 years and I find its a great way to meet a selection of like minded locals.

Muchas gracias

You will have the best chance of finding what you want in Buenos Aires. It's so much larger than any other city in either country (15 million in the metro area) that its offerings far outstrip any other place. A language school many seem to like there is Lenguas Vivas.

Montevideo is much smaller (1 1/2 million metro), much slower, offers many fewer options.

The second and third largest cities in Argentina are Cordoba and Rosario. You might look into them, too, if BA seems too large.

From Buenos Aires across the river you´ll find a little town (Colonia, 20000 people) with spanish school for foreigners with DELE degree: University of Valencia. Check it at www.cpcs.edu.uy

There are also flamenco classes at the hairdressers "Paulo Valenti". I´ll find out how you can get in touch with them and let you know. Bye
