Our History | Our Story
In 1991 the founder of Pasantias Argentinas arrived from Germany to Argentina to set up an exchange program.
The first German interns arrived in 1992 in Argentina. During a decade Argentina was one of the most expensive countries of the world because of the fixed exchange rate of 1 Peso = 1 US$. That was the reason why only few tourists came to Argentina and no single language school, no hostel and no activities for young people like rafting, paragliding, mountain biking exist.
After the devaluation of the Argentinean peso end of 2001/begin of 2002 the international incoming tourism in Argentina take off within the following years. Between 2004 and 2006 Argentina was the cheapest travel country in the region and now also low budget traveler could afford to travel Argentina. Language schools were founded, hostels opened and new touristic activities were offered.
Pasantias Argentinas today runs its own volunteer houses and co-operates with a partner language school. But from the beginning Pasantias Argentinas is not a regular language school rather than specialized on long term stays with its exchange programmes like internships abroad, volunteering abroad, work and travel and farm stays in Argentina.
To prepare the student for their internship, volunteer project, job or farmstay we offer intensive Spanish tuition in small groups with intercultural workshops and interview training. The student lives in one of our own, beautiful trilingual volunteer houses or in shared student´s flats or at homestays.
At the anniversary year 2016 (25 years Argentina) Pasantias Argentinas is one of the most professional internship, volunteer, farmstay and work experience provider of the country with the most beautiful language school in Córdoba, very nice accommodation houses.
We receive annually approx. 100 students from all over the world, only in Córdoba.
