Last family testimonial

"The combination of clsses in the morning and activities in the afternoon make for an enjoyable and intensive learning experience. The instructors are patient and kind. The learning is balanced between speaking, listening, writing and reading. The director is exceptionally helpful and accomodating. The total experience was most excellent. I can not imagine better!"
Carl Spetzler, EEUU 

"The classes and team at Las Montaña were excellent. I started with only a few survival phrases and words, by the end of the month I was able to have conversations. I now have a solid foundation in Spanish to support my travels and continued studies. Thank you to everyone at La Montaña." 
Joanna Fry, EEUU

"I loved it. It was perfect for me, a younger person. If you do not feel right, there is a bed for you to sleep on, lots of very fun activities. I started with hola and now I'm able to keep a conversation with other kids! It is an amazing place, the bus can get anoying but it is OVERALL more than AMAZING!"

5 vegetarian restaurants near La Montaña!

Even if it seems difficult to maintain vegetarian habits in Argentina, it is not impossible!
Most of the retsaurants in Bariloche offer dishes for those who do not eat meat, but here you have a map with some vegetarian restaurants close to La Montaña school.

Enjoy a delicious and nutritive meal after your Spanish lessons!

My three boys loved the classes

“If Veronica (Director of La Montaña) had not been so instrumental in helping us get organized, we probably would not have gone to Bariloche and would have missed out on amazing hikes and nature, wonderful food, excellent spanish instruction and a wonderful summer camp.  My three boys (3, 8 and 10 years old) loved the classes and activities and learned so much and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed
exploring all that Bariloche has to offer. I can't recommend it highly enough!"

Student Stories... Alex and Kylah, Australia

Alex and Kylah are traveling around South America with their 9 months old son. They took classes with La Montaña and we designed for them a program that would work best for their family needs!

"My partner and I contacted La Montaña after we arrived to Bariloche to take some lessons we wanted to start mid week, take separate lessons as we were at different levels, and organise a baby sitter. "La Montaña" were very accommodating as we changed to private lessons in order to work around our son's sleeping times, etc. The classes were very good with little revision quickly worked through, good amount of homework and the private lessons were able to be tailored around our own needs with what we wanted to learn."
Alec Norman, Australia

"The teachers were great. Very good at explaining new things and going faster or slower when necessary. We really appreciated the help and flexibility to have classes that worked around Oliver's (our son) schedule! Gracias!"

"An incredible time at La Montaña"

"I had an incredible time in my three weeks at La Montaña. My instructors were amazing! So patient, kind and professional. I learned so much in three short weeks and feel confident to travel alone now in Spanish speaking countries.
5 star all the way!!"

Tim Holcombe, EEUU

"Stuff I can use right away every day..."

"Teachers were very patient and helpful. La Montaña school was in safe convenient location. Material was very relevant, stuff I can use right away every day. I liked the games and presentation. It was helpful to switch off teachers, so I could get used  to different accents. Also liked the options for activieties in afternoon. 
Thanks for starting my trip off right!"
