Teaching English as a Foreign Language If you are coming to VG to take part in any of our school or education projects, this is a great way to help you prepare and make the most out of your time here. Some like to start learning before they travel in which case we would recommend http://www.bridgetefl.com/ who have worldwide centres, but why not get to grips with your task while already in Argentina? International House (http://www.international-house.com.ar/) is very experienced in training future teachers of English.
Spanish Classes While it’s not necessary in all our projects to have a high level of Spanish; we understand that one of the main reasons for choosing to volunteer in Latin America is to learn or improve your Spanish. Barely a 5 minute walk from the Volunteer’s house is BASP (http://www.baspanish.com/index1.html) who offer flexible lessons of both grammar and discussion.
