After-class Cultural Activities

After Spanish lessons, La Montaña offers a wide range of cultural and outdoor activities during which students can improve Spanish conversational skills while learning about our culture, traditions and nature. This is a great bonus in how to learn Spanish.
Led by our team members, students have the chance to learn more about Bariloche and Argentina, while practicing Spanish language and having fun. During these sessions, students from all levels participate together learning more about each other as well.

According to student´s interests and weather conditions, our activities leader sets a weekly schedule.
