Learn Spanish and Play Fútbol in Buenos Aires
Our Fútbol and Spanish Package allows students to experience first-hand the world-famous Argentine passion for fútbol. Students will not only learn about the fútbol culture of Buenos Aires by visiting La Boca, but will also be able to play the game alongside other students and native Argentines in weekly tournaments.
What does it include?
Intensive Spanish Lessons – Two Weeks
Our popular Intensive Spanish 20 course consists of 20 hours of lessons per week and will help you to develop your language skills in small interactive groups. Students will be encouraged to develop the four key language skills (speaking, writing, reading, and listening) while being immersed in the Spanish language in the classroom.
Two Fútbol Games
Students will participate in two different football tournaments during their two weeks in Buenos Aires, where they will be able to practice Spanish alongside the local players and get a unique look at how the Argentine’s play the sport. The teams are mixed and all levels are welcome, from football novices to lifelong players. The matches give students a unique opportunity to practice Spanish in a casual environment with local Argentines who share a passion for the world’s most popular game.
Students will also tour the neighbourhood of La Boca, the birthplace of Buenos Aires’ most famous professional fútbol teams and the epicenter of the city’s fútbol culture. La Boca has produced some of the world’s most famous players, such as Diego Maradona, and today is where the world-renowned Boca Juniors play at home in the landmark Bombonera stadium.
Optional Professional Fútbol Match
As an additional activity, students can choose to attend a professional fútbol match where they can be an Argentine fútbol fan for a day. The day includes a stop at a traditional fan bar to eat and drink either before or after the game for a complete fútbol fanatic experience. Since game availability and schedules vary throughout the year, students can add this optional excursion to their program once they arrive in Argentina. Students can book more than two weeks of this program upon request.
