I had a fabulous summer in Buenos Aires thanks to the support I had in helping me take full advantage of the city and my internship. Argentina is an incredible, diverse, and beautiful country that is definitely worth exploring! It gave me the chance to practice my Spanish and gain professional experience while being immersed in a culture that I plan on returning to in the near future!

My summer in Buenos Aires was one of invaluable experience and growth. Culturally, I encountered (and soon fell in love with) vibrant and diverse cultures, from BA to Iguazú Falls to Montevideo, making lasting friendships along the way. Academically, my Spanish improved beyond my expectations. Professionally, I gained experience in the workplace, simultaneously cementing business and language skills. Buenos Aires offered everything I could have hoped for in a summer.

Although I lived in Buenos Aires for four months before starting my internship, I don’t think I fully understood life in the city until I began working. In my first few months as a student studying abroad, I tended to gravitate towards tourist-oriented activities, but when I began working I had a chance to settle down and join working porteños in daily life. My internship gave me the opportunity to learn about the work culture, the reality of civil participation, and the laws and policies of the government firsthand. While I learned about some of these things in the classroom, I didn’t feel like a member of Argentine society until I actually participated in it.

I absolutely loved the summer I spent in Argentina. It was my first internship outside of the U.S. and I was excited, but I really didn’t know what to expect. Once I arrived in Buenos Aires, I fell in love. While living with other students and working as a business development intern, I was able to engage in interesting work and contribute by reaching out to potential partnering companies. I also had plenty of time to explore the city at my own leisure and fully immerse myself in Argentine culture. Whether I was shopping at an open market, learning to dance tango, catching a performance at the Teatro Colón, or riding horses at the foot of the Andes in Mendoza, I quickly grew fond of the rich traditions and customs of Argentina. Not only did I vastly improve my Spanish and dancing abilities, I also savored every moment of my adventure and hope to return to beautiful Buenos Aires soon.

Living and interning in Buenos Aires was the experience of a lifetime. Through my internship, I was able to work directly with not-for-profit and school leaders across Argentina and gain invaluable communication skills. In addition, I participated in weekly Spanish lessons with a native Spanish Language and Philosophy professor, which I still take part in today via Skype!

Interning in Buenos Aires is the best way I could have spent the summer after my Sophomore year. The work experience helped me get a great internship for my Junior summer, and now I feel comfortable working in any Spanish speaking country.

My time abroad in Buenos Aires has proved to be one of the most fun and formative experiences of my life! Porteños welcome outsiders to experience their culture in a number of ways - food, art, sports, and nightlife to name a few - and my Spanish language skills skyrocketed throughout the time I spent in the city. In addition to Buenos Aires itself and all of its intriguing “barrios,” there are innumerable possibilities for trips outside of the city, to other parts of the country or even to other countries! With the wealth of history and cultural events the city has to offer, it is impossible to be bored in Buenos Aires.

I was in Buenos Aires for a four-month long internship as a part of my graduate program in Germany. It was a great experience to be in that awesome city! I learned and saw so much during that time… I organized my stay with Ann, who leads Puentes. She was super supportive with her Buenos Aires expertise. She is a real Buenos Aires expert with an excellent network in BA, and she really knows where to go and what to do. It was a great experience!

After studying abroad in Buenos Aires, I wanted to combine cultural immersion with a more professional experience and a different perspective of the city. Since I worked at the Argentine branch of an American company, it was interesting to see how the business model and operations were translated to a different culture. Working on various projects at the office provided me with an opportunity to learn more about a city I already loved!

La ciudad mágica que es Buenos Aires. You can go abroad anywhere but living and working in BsAs seemed different. The people have a sense of humor and love for life that is hard to match. The vibe of the city takes you to another world… final word, no matter who you speak with they cannot deny that Buenos Aires is anything other than unique. Go!

In living with a host family I engaged in an intensive cultural-immersion program where I was able to truly get a feel for the culture and way of life. I was also fortunate enough to intern for a company in the city where I gained critical work experience and learned so much about the company. Working in an office environment was an amazing way to gain practical experience, improve my language skills and meet great people. Living in Buenos Aires also gave me the opportunity to travel around Argentina, one of the most beautiful, diverse countries in the world. I learned so much from living, studying and interning in Buenos Aires and had an amazing semester!
