Vamos Spanish Academy is a well-rounded Spanish language school perfectly...

Vamos Spanish Academy is a well-rounded Spanish language school perfectly located in the dynamic Palermo neighborhood in Buenos Aires. Our small group classes and our own customized materials allow students to truly practice and learn in a clear, relevant and effective way. The many activities and workshops take you outside the classrooms and live the language! The school is also very eco-friendly and runs various donation initiatives so students can participate and help make a difference while learning Spanish and traveling in Argentina.

I had an incredible experience with Vamos, having never studied Spanish before they immediately put me at ease. The classes were small and intimate and I felt that I was constantly supported when ever I felt phased. After 6 week my Spanish has come on leaps and bounds. On top of this the school had a great common room giving... More

I have spent a total of seven weeks at Vamos learning Spanish. My first visit was last year in July, and my second visit was for a month in February. When I first started at Vamos, it had been 13 years since I had formally studied Spanish. My Spanish was very limited upon starting classes at Vamos. Within two weeks... More

First of all, I gotta thank all of the staff in the school - what they do is out of the ordinary. I came here with almost no spanish, which can be very difficult in Argentina since my german and english did not help me a lot. Thats why i decided to try a language school and since i stayed... More

We did the course for one week and learned a lot! Groups are small (we were 6) and our teacher was very enthusiastic. Setting was quite informal, which was good, because you want to feel comfortable trying to speak a new language. Would definitely recommend vamos if you want to learn Spanish in BA!

I had zero knowledge of Spanish but do speak reasonable Italian. I couldn't agree more of what was written, I loved my time in the school. I'm a single traveller and this way it was perfect to have a day-to-day activity. Firstly, the location is perfect, close to Recoleta, Palermo Viejo and the subway station. Secondly, it's a perfect way... More

I traveled to Buenos Aires in 2016 with very limited Spanish, and Buenos Aires can be a bit of a challenge to navigate without it. I studied in another school for the first few months, however, their teaching style was strictly by the book and not customizable to the students' needs. Through the recommendation of another International Student, I enrolled... More

Hi. Initially I chose Vamos because the class times worked with my schedule. I'm so glad I did. I'm a total beginner, and my instructor, Gaston, was so patient explaining things over and over again as my classmates and I tried to absorb a language that none of us knew whatsoever. He was also great at answering questions that weren't... More

I recently stayed in Buenos Aires for four weeks to visit family and I wanted to take the opportunity to improve my Spanish. I was introduced to Vamos and immediately liked the atmosphere in the beautiful old building and welcoming attitude from the staff. In particular I wanted to thank Ben & Mercedes for their help in recommending the right... More

I've booked this school based on the reviews on Tripadvisor to brush up my rusty Spanish from a crash course 8 years ago. I remembered bits and had forgotten even more but after a quick interview I got stuck in their B1 level class which suited me perfectly. Classes were small with 4 students only and we were fairly evenly... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
