About Buenos Aires – things to do and see
Palermo is Buenos Aires’ largest and most walk-able neighborhood or barrio in Spanish. Palermo is filled with tree-lined streets and 19th-century homes. In the past 15 years, Palermo has seen an explosion in development making it the most trendy barrio in Buenos Aires. Visitors will find bustling streets filled with street vendors, innovative restaurants, traditional parrillas or steakhouses, and relaxing parks.
The nightlife in Argentina is legendary — many restaurants don’t even open until 10 p.m., and clubs stay open until late the next morning. Those staying up late will be able to grab Argentinian street food including choripan (chorizo and bread), lomito (steak sandwich), and of course, world-famous empanadas.
What course alumni have to say
Thank you for your wonderful guidelines on how to teach children English. I learned a great deal about all of the important fundamentals. I feel very prepared to teach English to a variety of types of learners. I feel confident in being able to help others to progress in learning English as I have progressed in learning to teach English. I would recommend this program to anyone interested in being a good TEFL teacher in another country or in your own respective country for that matter. Thank you!
The experience was unique because it was something I’d never done before and I wasn’t too sure what I was getting myself into! Therefore this was a good opportunity to learn something new and see if it was for me.
The course was very informative, inspiring and insightful. It stimulated my intellect and shaped my role as an educator. I now have knowledge about classroom management. I gained vast knowledge about learning theories and how to incorporate the elements from different theories into my lesson plan.
