Academia Uruguay

Juan Carlos Gomez 1408 Montevideo, 11000 Uruguay


Study Spanish in Buenos Aires and continue in Montevideo, or vice versa. Add free volunteer work if you like. Academia Uruguay and Academia Buenos Aires are partner schools under the same management and offer you the possibility to continue your courses on the other side of the Rio de la Plata. The course levels and materials are the same and so is the cost. Simply switch from one school to the other every Monday.

Both Academia Uruguay and Academia Buenos Aires are Accredited Centers of the Cervantes Institute.


Academic excellence at both schools is guaranteed through several factors, but especially by its teaching staff and the study materials used.

Professional service is a second important principle of Academia Uruguay. Students are guided and helped through their entire stay in Uruguay and indeed beyond that: from the very beginning of a contact with you until your departure and beyond. Staff is multilingual (Spanish, English, German, French, Italian, Portuguese) and makes sure that you feel comfortable. In order to ensure this, we insist on promptness, kindness, seriousness and reliability in all interactions with students.

Complete immersion is the third basic principle the academia embraces. The founders of the academia believe that Spanish classes alone are not as productive as Spanish classes given in a context of permanent cultural immersion. There are four facets to this principle:

* Classroom introduction to Hispanic, Latin American and national culture through printed documents, classroom interaction, sound and video documents.

* Extracurricular programs which are not compulsory for the students, but recommended, and free of charge.

* The possibility to live with a host family or in a shared apartment with other students (of which at least one is a local). The host family approach has worked extremely well and is an excellent opportunity for the students to apply the learned material in a real life setting.

* The possibility to add free volunteer work to your stay. Both schools offer you the possibility to combine Spanish courses with free volunteer work. You can work in different organizations and projects in Buenos Aires, discovering very particular problems and benefiting people in many sectors. Share your time, ideas and skills with Argentineans and Uruguayans and discover their culture in a unique way! The schools will help you find an appropriate activity according to the needs of the organization, your area of interest, your availability and your skills. You can volunteer in parallel to your Spanish classes or afterwards.
