Spanish immersion school in Buenos Aires

I'd like a recommendation for a good language immersion program in Buenos Aires. I do not want to engage in a discussion about the ''merits' of Argentine Spanish versus 'other' Spanish or whether it makes sense to learn Spanish before going. I would really like to hear from anyone who has taken an immersion course that they recommend with good instructors. I'm interested in a one to two week program. Thanks in advance.

I'm currently studying at Elebaires Spanish School in Palacio Barolo. The first time I entered the building, I was amazed by the beautiful architecture of this historic building! Many attractions are located close to the school and one of the teachers joins us twice a week to discover one of them. The classes can be a challenge but the teachers really take the time to explain everything. If you don't understand something, you can always ask for extra help. My Spanish improved a lot since I came here and I can 100% recommend it!

I hope this helps!!

I took private classes for two hours a day for three weeks with Gabriela Ferrante. It was really intensive as the classes were conducted completely through Spanish (though Gabriela has perfect English as well). I had no Spanish to start with and after just three weeks I had learnt enough to be comfortable and confident making my way through South America for the following three months. Gabriela came to my apartment or we met in lovely historic coffee shops for our classes and she also included an excursion every week (one of which was to the Palacio Barolo mentioned in the above reply!). She is an excellent and very experienced teacher and managed to make our classes enjoyable as well as instructive. Since returning to Europe I have taken other classes but have yet to find a teacher to equal Gabriela. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I am also a big fan of Gabriela Ferrante. However, the OP is asking about ''language immersion' programs, so I wonder if there are not such that include homestays - or full day programs ?
