Argentina, land of gauchos and the tango, is also home to rain forests, glaciers, and penguins. Sophisticated and lively, Buenos Aires offers first-rate museums, music and theaters as well as a café scene that rivals Europe. Argentina values tradition and hospitality and is the ideal setting to study abroad in a Spanish-speaking environment.
AFSers in Argentina live with host families and are placed in public schools throughout the country, including Ushuaia, the southern tip of South America. AFS Argentina also places students in neighboring Uruguay, usually in or around Montevideo or Punta del Este. Studying abroad in Argentina or Uruguay for a year or a semester will be an interesting and deeply fulfilling experience
