Volunteer at La Montaña: Language Exchange Free Programs

As part of our Social Development Projects, La Montaña runs a "Language Exchange Program" available for both Spanish Language students and locals.

20140423 140839
This project is the result of the articulation of two institutional projects:
    ▪    Social Educational: free English lessons for locals
    ▪    Spanish Immersion Programs

By setting up appointments for students learning Spanish and locals learning a foreign language at La Montaña, we encourage both sides to improve speaking skills while learning cultural facts from each other.
Weekly, this meetings are also the opportunity to get to know new friends and practice a second language in a dynamic and relaxed atmosphere.
If you are interested in this option, please, email us for more details.

After-class cultural activities at La Montaña:

Argentina Wine tasting: Today Special: MALBEC. 


Periodically, as part of our After-class cultural activities at La Montaña, Rafael brings important information and good wines to taste.

Last Friday, we enjoyed MALBEC, while we learned about Argentine Winery and this is what we found out:

Argentine Strongest wine is Cabernet Sauvignon and the lightest: Pinot Noir

The area where the grape is grown will make the difference: Salta: stronger wines, Mendoza: medium wines, Patagonia: lighter wines

The specialty in Patagonia are: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot, Noir Merlot

Labels: According to Argentine regulations, what you read in the front label must agree 100% with the wine facts, while what is written in the back label might not be 100% objective information.

"Reserva" means the wine has passed some time in oak tanks
"Roble" means some chipped oak from used tanks has been added to the wine.

Stick around us! You will be happily surprised with our cultural activities while learning about our culture and practice Spanish!
