Students will have the opportunity to experience summer in the Southern Hemisphere, learn Rioplatense Spanish variation, visit historical sites, museums, and universities while living with host families and meeting with experts on urban studies, visual arts, literature, international relations, wine and yerba mate industries, sports, and many other disciplines in dialogue with Argentina’s history and culture.
