One of the special events you may not miss while living in Buenos Aires, is la Bomba del Tiempo.
La Bomba De Tiempo’ is a group of 16 percussionists and their show is organized every week, on Monday. “La Bomba” is an improvisational drum group; all rhythms and sounds are created while playing and the session depend on the interaction of everyone involved.
This makes La Bomba Del Tiempo a totally unique event, very popular by our Spanish Students in Buenos Aires. The music is accompanied by the director’s over 100 hand-, finger-, and body signs. Among the instruments there are congas, djembes, maracas, cowbells and shakers.
The show takes place on Mondays, in Centro Cultural Konex (Sarmiento 3131, between Jean Jaures and Anchorena) in the Barrio “Abasto”. The Konex Cultural Center is housed in an old cooking oil family and it has been hosting the drum troup for several years now. (more…)

The last few days have been very hot here in Buenos Aires. So yesterday – after my first week of Spanish lessons in Argentina – I decided to go to a pool party. It was in Recoleta at the rooftop of a hotel. I took the metro (or “subte” as it’s called here) and fortunately it was easy to find. It was on the 17th floor so you can’t even imagine how amazing the view was! I arrived at 16.00h and the temperature of the water was perfect. I enjoyed nice drinks and the warmth until the sunset around 20.00h.
Then they turned the music up and the party upstairs began! There was a great DJ and everyone was dancing and having a great time. While dancing, I was still amazed by the impressive view we had from the rooftop. I had never been partying with such a nice view, so it was a great experience! (more…)

In the neighbourhood Monserrat, on Avenida de Mayo, lays a national historic building. The building is called Palacio Barolo and AMAUTA-Elebaires is proud to be able to call it their home. Our Spanish school is located on the 3th floor, office 10.
Designed by the Italian architect, Mario Palanti, commissioned by Italian magnate Luis Barolo, it was built as a tribute to Dante’s Divine Comedy, as both Palanti and Barolo were big fans of Dante.
A lot of elements from the book are designed to come back in the building. (more…)

December is, of course, the month full of celebrations, food and families & friends coming together in warm houses, while it’s cold and probably snowing outside.
It’s all different here in Buenos Aires and for our Spanish students learning Spanish in Argentina for Christmas it will be a whole new experience.
First of all it’s summer in Buenos Aires and it’s nice and warm. It is around 30 degrees C and people are walking in shorts and we’re enjoying the swimming pool at the AMAUTA school residence after Spanish classes.

Coordinating the voluntary work in Buenos Aires is one of my main tasks during my internship in Argentina at AMAUTA Elebaires Spanish School. It gives me the opportunity to work in one of the most beautiful buildings of Buenos Aires – the Barolo Palace – and to meet people from all over the world who come to Buenos Aires to learn Spanish and to do volunteer work.
But before I meet these people in Buenos Aires, here at the school we’ve already one some work. First the placement and first meeting with the volunteer project should be arranged, which means; sending emails, waiting, calling, waiting, asking for confirmation, waiting, checking again if everything is confirmed and then waiting again. Working in Argentina sometimes puts your patience to the test; this is also one of the many reasons why doing voluntary work in Argentina is quite a challenge.

I already knew Buenos Aires is perfectly located for many weekend trips to other treasures of Argentina (Mendoza, Iguazu, Bariloche, Puerto Madryn, La Plata), but now I experienced that it is also ideal to make a day or weekend trip to Uruguay!
There are several companies that offer boat trips to Colonia del Sacramento and Montevideo. Within one hour you can be in another country, how awesome is that?!

Last week a group of Spanish students of Buenos Aires based Spanish school AMAUTA Elebaires went to the impressive stadium “El Monumental” of CA River Plate where the national selections of Argentina and Trinidad and Tobago played a friendly game as an exercise for the FIFA Wold Cup Brazil 2014 in June and July.
Carina and Andreas from Germany are football fans. Their favorite team is FC Bayern München. Both of them were really excited to see the Argentine way of playing football, and most importantly, to see Lionel Messi, the new Diego Maradona of Argentina.
