What is the age range in the school. I'm trying to find a good language immersion experience for three weeks in July, 2015. I'm an independent 50yr young woman who wants an engaging experience that's diverse...not all the one age.
I'm also wondering about the Spanish that is taught in the school an spoken locally. Is it different in both places?
Hola Linda! Thanks for your questions.
Hola Dom! Thank you so much for your answer!! We couldn't have answered better =)
So there isn't much to add; we in fact welcome students from all ages (we've had students in their 60s, 70s and even 80s!), and we've never had the situation of a person feeling uncomfortable because of his/her age. We do have fun in our lessons, but we also take our students' progress seriously, and that's a balance everybody is usually comfortable with.
As for the Spanish spoken at the school, as Dom said, we do use our local dialect but we explicit possible variations if relevant.
If you have further questions, do not hesitate in letting us know by e-mail; we'll answer them one by one!
Thank you both again!
Thanks for your question.
Although most fo the students are in their 20s, there are several from different age groups. (Ranging up to their 50s, I guess.) I have noticed that age doesn't seem to be much of a big deal at the school. I've enjoyed making friends with people of all ages from different parts of the world. In other situations, the age range might be more noticeable, but at ElPasaje, all the students and instructors are united by their interest in Spanish.
And the Spanish spoken at the school is definitely the language spoken locally! The instructors all do a great job of pointing out words and pronunciations that are uniquely Argentine that aren''t used in the rest of Latin America.
Hope this helps!
