Best language school and then travel ideas, input needed

!Hola a todos!

I am planning an educational language learning/travel trip for next February.

Has anyone tried Enforex language school (located in 9 de Julio y avenida de Mayo) in Buenos Aires?

Any other language school experiences?

I'm thinking of taking the one on one and group lesson courses they offer for one week, and staying with a host family.

Then, I would like to travel around a bit.

Must do for me: an estancia with horseback riding

riding on a beach would be another

dream come true, though

possibly an authentic tango lesson

Colonia de Sacramento

Other things I'd like to do if the budget allows:

Catataras del Iguazu

I'm travelling solo, so safety is a concern, and I'd like to find a tour company that has a custom intinerary option.

Okay, thanks for any input!

Have a look at the previous thread which I bumped up on "any suggestions for language schools".

I agree with Dr. Dawgy that Lenguas Vivas is an excellent school and offers the best value. For what they charge for classes, you can afford to have a private tutor to assist on the side if needed.

Dr.D,also included the link for home stays,etc. Lenguas vivas is located in one of the best neighborhoods in the city and it's possible to find an inexpensive studio apartment within walking distance to the school.

There are a number of estancias close to the city where you can do a daytrip for horsebackriding,etc. Wait until you arrive,then you can plan with some new friends.

Colonia is another daytrip which is accomplished with the Buquebus ferry.

There are a number of bus trips to Igauzu which are cost effective and cn include the hotels. Again wait until you arrive and plan with new friends from school.

Buen viaje!!

Hello Chavelle, you might combine spanish learning and visiting Colonia del SAcramento by doing it at University of valencia spanish school. Check it out at www.cpcs.edu.uy they give you a diploma with DELE degree.
