About
Vamos Spanish Academy is a well-rounded Spanish language school perfectly located between the two most dynamic neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, Recoleta and Downtown financial district and with schools in Toronto, Santiago Chile, Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Colombia, Mexico and Peru. Our small intensive 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.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: San Nicolás
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.

I learned a couple of years ago that large classrooms and large group classes are not for me. At Vamos, I set up two 1-1/2 hour private lessons each week, for 4 weeks. The classes were perfectly tailored to my needs and I learned a lot in a short period of time. Classes were in the afternoons and they worked around my schedule.

The only suggestion for improvement is that classrooms are a bit warm, but that may just because we are in the middle of the summer! Otherwise everything was perfect from planning to execution. My teacher Julieta was especially patient with me. She spoke clearly and slowly so that I could understand most of what she was saying. I would highly recommend.

When I was searching for spanish schools in Buenos Aires I was overwhelmed with the amount of options available. I did my research and discovered that many of these schools are agencies without an actual building. I then decided to visit a few schools before making my decision. What I discovered is that in the end the only two serious schools that are recognised by the city and that have proper facilities and qualified staff. One is Expanish and the other is Vamos Spanish Academy. I enrolled for one week at the first. Had a good experience but found that there are way to many students packed in one classroom (about 10). Also it was a bit too far from Recoleta. After that I signed for one week at Vamos academy. Here, classes have an average of 3 people per class what makes the learning experience much more relaxed and personalized. I really enjoyed vamos so I took another 4 weeks of classes. Some interesting facts about this school is that their weekly price for group lessons includes tango classes, social outgoings and lots of workshop. Overall a great hidden gem to learn Spanish in Buenos Aires.

One last tip. Ask about other fees associated with the classes. When I was contacting other schools I discovered that many have hidden fees. I wanted to use my credit card and to my surprise most of the school told me that I needed to pay 10% more. Others have registration fees or charges for the materials.

Vamos Academy is a great place for International travelers and locals alike. The Academy offers courses in different languages and for all levels of proficiency. Sol and the Vamos staff are both helpful and friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming and offers extracurricular activities around the city of Buenos Aires.

I have studied at Vamos for 3 weeks now and have made remarkable progress in my ability to speak and comprehend Spanish. Since I have also studied in similar schools in Colombia and Mexico, I have a base for comparison. They do a great job here. The location in the city is easy to get to (my bus drop off is block away). The registration was easy and the staff bend over backwards to be helpful. My teacher, Laura, is knowledgeable, friendly, funny and patient. The four hours fly by. And Buenos Aires is a beautiful, interesting and safe city. It is MUCH better spending the US winter studying here than freezing back home.

I took private and group lessons, along with my husband, over the course of two weeks when we were in Buenos Aires. Both types of lessons were great. We were placed appropriately with others in the same ability range and we had bright, charming instructors who knew a lot about teaching as well as Spanish language, grammar, and culture. The staff was always helpful and friendly, both before we arrived in Argentina and after we started classes. I learned so much and feel much more confident in my Spanish speaking abilities. I highly recommend Vamos Academy to those wishing to learn or improve their Spanish.

Took a week long intro (Level 1) Spanish class at Vamos from 1/6-10. Overall a great experience. Easy to book, friendly staff, small class (3-4 people). Teacher was great, really helpful and accommodating to our group and the various questions we asked. School also organized various activities throughout the week (Mate drinking, Tango class, Mundo Lingo, Movie Day, etc.). Those I that I attended ended up being quite fun.

Would highly recommend for anyone hoping to either learn or improve their Spanish whilst in Buenos Aires regardless of ability level or age.

We spent two weeks at Vamos Spanish Academy, with a combination of group and private lessons. The experience was fantastic. Starting with the booking process before we arrived, the student administrator/advisor, Derek, was incredibly helpful and efficient; the Academic Director, Rafael was very attentive and responsive to our needs and requests and the teaching staff, Lucia-Veronica, Jessica and Mariano, were wonderful. Being academics ourselves, we are very aware of what a well-planned class and excellent teaching look like and our classes could not be faulted! Every day was a new and exciting experience which improved our Spanish enormously and also taught us a lot about Argentinian culture and history. We recommend Vamos most highly.

Originally I signed up for tango classes but after a few weeks at the school I ended up enrolling in Spanish classes too. The school is very professional brand new facility and comfortable classrooms. My teacher Agustina not only she was very friendly but also patient and knowledgeable. She studied at the University of Buenos Aires and had a master in languages. Most teachers at the school seemed highly qualified honestly. I don't normally write reviews but felt I wanted to share my experience.

We took tango classes with Guillermo and Fernanda. The facilities are new and really comfortable. The teachers are wonderful, really patient and helpful. We actually took 20 hours all together between group and individual. I know Vamos Academy also offers language classes but we didn't get to take any. The school is very nice.

Good schools and great teachers. Location in Recoleta was very convenient and close to Palermo but also downtown BA. I only did one week but really enjoyed the experience. Wonderful staff and teacher's hands down.
