Uruguay's capital Montevideo is often referred to as the “little sister” of Buenos Aires. In fact, they are similar, as are the cultures of Argentina and Uruguay. However, Montevideo is much smaller and less hectic.
Around 2 million of Uruguay's approximately 3.4 million inhabitants live in the Montevideo metropolitan area. The city is the country's economic, administrative and cultural center. Cultural and folkloric events, important international exhibitions and music festivals take place all year round. Culture lovers will get their money's worth at concerts, theater performances or in one of the many museums.
Montevideo is located in an absolute top location on the Rio de la Plata and with access to the Atlantic. The port is one of the most important ones in all of South America, which also handles most of the country's total foreign trade.
The beach promenade (la rambla) along the Rio de la Plata is popular among foreign visitors and locals alike for walks. Montevideo has retained much of its original colonial charm and offers many green parks, historical monuments, imposing churches and other magnificent colonial buildings.
In addition to the memories of the Portuguese and Spanish colonial times, Montevideo has one thing in particular to offer: A distinctive nightlife for everybody! Especially in the old town center, restaurants, pubs, discos, tango shows and bars with live music are to be found.
Uruguay's capital is an attraction for many visitors from all over the world and it often serves as a base for tours to nearby seaside resorts on the Atlantic. The most famous place is the city of Punta del Este, where the Latin American jet is bustling, especially in the summer months.
The focus lies on grammar and communication training, as these are the basic components of language learning. Each level has its own focus, tailored to the previous knowledge of the students. The teachers use different teaching methods to train the different communication channels (listening, reading, speaking, writing) and to practice the grammar. Short videos, texts, newspaper articles and the school's own booklets are used to support teaching. Topics such as culture, politics and history of Uruguay are included in the lessons so that the students learn a little more about their host country in addition to the language.
On the first day of school there will be a placement test to determine your language skills. It is used to assign you to a group with an according level. There are 6 levels of difficulty (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2) according to the CEFR (Common European Framework of References for Languages).

At the end of the course, a certificate will be issued to confirm your language level.

The other two hours are used for conversation training, always taking into account the group's areas of interest. The focus here is on the students learning to express themselves in Spanish and lose their fear of the foreign language.

You can often walk or just take a few stops on the bus.
Accommodation in a homestay gives you the opportunity to experience the life of the locals up close, to taste typical local specialties and to learn a lot about the culture and lifestyle. These impressions make your stay in Uruguay unique! Accommodation in the homestay includes half board, so you will definitely enjoy local delicacies.
