Argentina

¡Hola! Are you looking to swim in beautiful rivers, relax at the beach, and hike through mountain paths? Choose Argentina as your YFU destination and you will explore a diverse landscape while learning Spanish.

Argentina, “the land of silver,” is a country big enough to keep any visitor endlessly fascinated, yet intimate enough to feel like home.

“Since my year abroad, I’ve been able to use my experiences, my fluency in Spanish and my knowledge gained from all of my international friends in my every day life. I’m always encouraging peers to study abroad, travel (especially to Argentina), and am looking to do another year abroad through college. Studying abroad with YFU was an unforgettable experience and I would strongly recommend it!”
