Mark and Miriam Houliston (New Zealand)

My husband and I had a great experience at Academia Bariloche!

Taking the long way home to New Zealand after five years working in Australia, we embarked on nine months of travel through South America, Cuba and Central America. To do this we needed to be able to speak at least some Spanish! So as soon as we finished hiking in Patagonia we reached the beautiful town of Bariloche, and hunted down a language school.

We spent a month studying from late March to early April 2014.

We’re still using the Spanish we learned at Academia as we head further north into Central America. We had heard of another popular school that we were going to check out, but as soon as we visited Academia we signed up! The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the second person for half price discount they had was too good to pass up.

From day one we knew we’d made the right choice – our excellent teacher Nicolas managed to teach us Spanish despite our many attempts to distract him.

We were surprised by how quickly we were learning and how effective the program was. We really enjoyed living in Bariloche, it’s an awesome town to chill out in, drink delicious craft beers, melt in your mouth steaks, the best chocolate in South America, and you can’t forget the ice cream! After all that food and study there are also lots of beautiful walks and cycle options to check out the area. The staff know all about how to organize these and some of the afternoon activities that are included in the course take you to these sites.

We would definitely recommend Academia Bariloche, all the teachers were great and one of the owners is married to a fellow kiwi!

Academia Bariloche is everything you could want in one building, friendly, efficient, understanding, focused and above all fun!!  We just loved everything about it and are so thankful that we experienced life in Bariloche with them. Thank you for teaching us Spanish and enabling us to travel successfully in Spanish countries with confidence. Thank you for also introducing us to our fellow students, four months after the course we’re still meeting up with other students along our travels!
