    This all-inclusive teaching internship has all of your big ticket items covered, meaning you just need to budget spending money for your social life.

    Previous interns say that by bringing an extra US$250 – $400 per month will give you a busy and comfortable social life. You can expect to pay around $8 for a meal out and $1.50 for a local beer.

    TIP: Your first month can often be when you spend more – excursions, socializing and getting settled in.

    What will my housing be like?

    Housing is provided throughout your entire stay on the internship in a homestay with a local Argentine family.

    Past participants laud the homestay as one of the most unexpectedly positive aspects of their internship — whether it’s because of your mamá’s authentic paella or the unique insight into the local way of living.

    During orientation you’ll share a room for the first few days with fellow interns but after that you’ll typically have your own single room with a private bathroom in your family’s home. On a few occasions previous interns have shared a room with a host brother or sister.

    How much time should I dedicate to socializing with my host family?

    This incredible internship combines English teaching, authentic family home stays, cultural immersion and the opportunity to improve your Spanish skills.

    You’ll spend time on weekends and evenings with your host family as part of the internship; it’s the ultimate way to have an authentic Argentine experience.

    Budget around 3 hours weekly to help your family learn English plus join in with fun family activities and excursions.
