Volunteering at the Spanish School

The school connects students with volunteer opportunities in Bariloche and the surrounding communities. Two current students, Ellen, a doctor, and her husband, Charles, a computer specialist, wanted to take advantage of this program. For this they headed to the administrative offices of nearby Villa los Coihues, a small village located on the banks of Lago Gutiérrez. Ellen had hoped to work in the health clinic but found that it is only open rarely and so is arranging to help at the hospital in Bariloche. Charles wanted to switch from his normally sedentary work and help with construction, but, when he found that the village water department was having trouble switching their computer program he gladly agreed to lend his expertise. The village administrators have promised to let him break a sweat and help with some construction as well.

Would you like to know more about our Spanish School?

Our Spanish Immersion programs are personalized and tailored to our students needs while still covering international contents. Therefore, in case we are going through topics that don’t interest you, we can adapt course content to ensure that you are happy with your lessons. If you are not, please speak with your teacher or with Veronica immediately to organize things according to your preferences. We want you to make the most of your time with us so feel free to express your opinions and make suggestions. By the end of your course, you will have to complete a feedback survey where you will evaluate both your results and the school.

Your stay in Bariloche:
During your stay in Bariloche, you can count on us for any help. Sometimes, cultural differences might make you feel a bit uncomfortable. Please feel free to ask us anything and we will be very glad to help make your experience more comfortable.

First day of lessons:
Students who have applied for lessons in a group will normally have a placement test on Monday at 9:00am. By 10:30 am we will know who will be in each group, these students will continue in their new group right after the test. After your first day, or at any point during your schooling, if you feel the group doesn’t suit you or you need extra help, simply tell us. You can always change into another group or have additional private lessons. If you have asked for lessons in a group and there is no suitable group for you, you will have 15 hrs a week of private lessons for the same price.

Our school runs from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm. Mostly, lessons in a group take place during the morning from 9:00 to 1:00 pm. We have two breaks during the morning, when you can meet the rest of the students.

Private lessons take place mostly in the afternoon and evenings, however, if these schedules do not suit your activities, it can be discussed. There are hours available on request on Saturday mornings, as well. We are flexible, provided that we can fulfill our commitments with all our students.
