    Spanish for Kids: an unforgettable family experience abroad!

    Eva and Rikki Goldman, age 9 and 11
    Spanish class in Buenos Aires has been so much fun. All the teachers are really nice and patient and they like to play games with us. We did projects like writing a magazine, collages and interview the adult students, all in Spanish of course. The class is 4 hours long, but it goes by really fast. We did not know any Spanish at all when we got here and now we have learned all about verbs, animals, colors, fruits and animals. Muchas gracias AMAUTA!


    Doing the MALBA!

    Coming from Europe I’m used to seeing Rembrandt, Vermeer, Van Gogh, Da Vinci, Picasso and Dali, to name but of a few of our best known European painters. Their works of art are familiar to me and over the last couple of years I’ve learned a thing or two about them.

    I grew up in a house full of paintings (my mother is a painter) and I work with young painters, sculptors and artists all the time but I still cannot say I’m an art expert. I know what I like and that’s about it. But I can only know what I like from the things I’ve seen with my own eyes and here in Buenos Aires I’ve discovered a new kind of liking.

    Doing the MALBA!

    At the AMAUTA Spanish school in Buenos Aires you get to learn Spanish four hours a day. Of course it’s best to practice what you’ve learned and therefore they organize free cultural excursions to introduce you to the ‘real Argentina’. You can learn to play Truco, get to know the ins & outs on drinking Mate, prepare an Argentinean meal and visit one of the many museums in Buenos Aires.


    I came to Buenos Aires on a flight with Air Europa. I had never heard of this airline but it seemed to be the cheapest at the time. When I got onto the plane it was obviously not a small company on the black list of airlines. We were packed in an Airbus 300 with over 250 people. Somewhere over the Atlantic we all received a customs form by one of the flight attendants; ‘please do tell us what you would like to declare’ it read. I didn’t know what to do. Everything with a value over $ 300 should be written down and paid for. What?! I carried with me an old, but functioning MacBook, a Sony e-reader and a borrowed Nikon camera. All together with a value of more than $ 1200 which I, or somebody else, already had paid for some time somewhere else. I was not going to do that again upon arrival in Argentina.

    Truco…about the Argentinean lying game!

    I am a Dutch girl. We Dutch can come across as being somewhat harsh and direct to others; we think we are just being honest. I like being honest. I don’t like to lie and try not to do so. However, this was a situation I of course had to put all my principles aside. My first act on Argentinean soil was to lie about the stuff I carried with me in my red suitcase.
