  • Vaccines: Consult your local doctor for advice

  • Visa cost: You’ll have support to obtain your visa

Your teaching experience

If you are based in a public school during your internship, you can typically expect to teach around 30-35 students per class.

Private school teachers will have a class size of about 20-25 students, and class sizes at an English institute will range from 15-20 students.

Most placements will involve teaching groups of adults, adolescents and or younger learners.

You’ll most likely have a fixed syllabus to follow, and you will have a local co-teacher to assist you in some cases. You will also have weekly English tutorials with your host.

Depending on the working scheme your number of working hours, teaching days and level of participation in school and English immersion camps will vary.

On average, expect to have 20 – 30 hours weekly work in a combination of school classroom lessons, English camps and lesson planning.


Please note final decision on placement is made by schools and so you must ultimately be flexible about your location. Often interns can combine multiple locations throughout your internship.

  • Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Rosario, Mendoza, La Plata, Tucuman, Santa Fe
  • San Juan, Resistencia, Neuquen, Jujuy, Corrientes, La Pampa & many more!

Plus, with regular excursions you’ll be able to immerse yourself in a melting pot of different cultures from around the globe.

Outside the classroom

Argentina is the perfect fusion of chic city living and rugged natural beauty.

The chattering café culture and celebration of food, fashion and football means there’s an attractive aspect of Argentine lifestyle for everyone – nature lovers, in particular, can’t afford to miss Patagonia and the mystic Andes.

Plus, Argentina is ideally situated near other South American destinations such as Paraguay, Chile and Bolivia, so you can continue to explore in your free time.


Your monthly stipend of 2,000 Argentine Pesos (ARS) will cover some basic living expenses.

The cost of living outside of the metropolitan areas of Argentina is reasonable, especially in comparison to big European cities. For socializing, excursions and any other living costs extra spending money of $300 – $500 USD will make your stay very comfortable.

The Argentina internship offers some places in smaller cities and towns, rather than the more well-known cities – the perfect chance to leave the beaten tourist trail and get under the skin of this amazing country.

With free homestay room and board (plus three meals a day), applicants are free to enjoy fantastic adventures traveling around the region.
