Spanish Language in Rosario

Program Overview

Rapidly improve your Spanish while exploring life and culture in Rosario, Argentina.  Five-week intensive Spanish language programs are offered in two summer sessions. Each session is designed for beginning through advanced level students. All courses are taught in Spanish and emphasize reading, writing, listening and speaking. In-class learning is complemented by field trips, guided visits and other group activities included in the program fee. 

If you have very little Spanish-speaking experience and plan to enroll in Rosario's fall program, you are encouraged to attend this summer session to help build your language proficiency. The GEO summer programs offer you full support and are preceded by an intensive orientation.

Academic Details

You are required to enroll in two Spanish language courses per session you attend. All courses offered in Rosario are recognized and approved for academic credit by various GEO partner institutions. Actual credit awarded is determined by the relevant department at your university in consultation with the study abroad office. Check with your study abroad advisor for more information.

Courses are taught by local instructors, experienced in teaching U.S. students. The programs are designed for first through fourth level Spanish language students. You will attend classes with students from around the U.S. with varying levels of Spanish language experience. Courses take place from Monday-Friday and include extensive academic excursions. You will meet local students at the Universidad Nacional de Rosario to practice your Spanish skills or to take part in lively debate and dialogue on current events and issues.

Housing Description

Living with an Argentine host family provides you with the opportunity to learn about Argentine ways of life, further language proficiency and discover rich cultural traditions in Rosario. Many cherish the homestay experience as one of the most rewarding aspects of studying abroad, and often times remain lifelong friends with their host family well after returning home. Host families are carefully screened and provide quality, comfortable accommodations in the downtown area offering you the opportunity to improve your Spanish language and skills by participating in family, community, cultural and recreational activities. Placements include families with children as well as single women and couples with older children who no longer live at home. You will have your own room. Breakfast and dinner will be provided by the homestay, and during the week lunch will be served at a restaurant close to the university.
