I went to El Pasaje Spanish School too and I couldn't agree more. I had the same feeling about people there being so authentic and welcoming and the classes didn't even feel like classes! I had so much fun and I learned so much. I just regret I couldn't stay longer.
- El Pasaje Spanish SchoolFirst to ReviewOct 03, 2012
I wanted to review this Spanish school because it really saved my trip.
I had been planning my trip to study Spanish in Buenos Aires for 3 months when I finally made up my mind about which school I wanted to go (it was one of the biggest and it wasn't El Pasaje). When I got there, I found myself in big, cold place, full of people running around. As soon as the class started, I noticed every student there had a different level of Spanish and the teacher had no preparation at all for his job. Long story short, I left the school two days after I started, feeling ripped off.
I was staying at a hostel near the Obelisco and a guy who I had met there recommended El Pasaje Spanish School as he was taking classes there and was very happy with them. As soon as I got there I noticed things were different: it was a small, cozy school in an antique building, where people were always smiling and willing to help you, not only with things related to your classes, but with your whole stay and Buenos Aires experience. There wasn't a time when they didn't show good willingness to answer every stupid question I had about the city.
The classes were amusing and always different. The teachers (who are young, funny, and really well prepared) really made an effort to make the classes entertaining and, at the same time, knew exactly how to deliver a gramatical explanation in order to make us understand the bases of Spanish.
As if all these weren't enough, they took us (me and other students) out for drinks to bars and places they usually go (not only touristic places), which helped us to get to know the nowadays Buenos aires culture and not only the historical, tango-related, prefabricated for tourists night life.
This school not only saved my trip, but they made it so much better than I expected! Apart from that, aprendí mucho Español y quiero volver a Buenos Aires pronto!!!
Their Trip Advisor page speaks for itself:
I hope this review helps everyone who's planning a trip to Buenos Aires to make a good decission about their Spanish classes!
