Buenos Aires is a very big and astonishing city and each neighbourhood has its own charm and quite European architecture style. It’s totally safer than what you probably expect and it has everything you may need – good, hot climate (especially December – May) , lots of restaurants, pubs, night clubs, parks, shops, convenient public transport, lots of opportunities for touristic sightseeing.
If your Spanish is not so good, it’s totally gonna be fine to ‘survive’ with only English, so no worries about that. I spent 5 months in that amazing city and I loved it. There are a lot of international students, so its quite easy to make friends and hang out together.
I have been working as a marketing intern at a tech startup. What I liked the most about it was the team spirit and the warm, open communication I could have with everyone, no matter if I’m in a working environment or hanging around with them in the city. The company I was working for was well-organized and I successfully completed my graduation thesis assignment.
The only disadvantage I can say about BA – well, there is no beach nearby :). To all of you planning to go there – just do it – its gonna be amazing. Personally, I didn’t plan to go to Argentina, it was a quick decision based on the fact that I love to travel as much as I can and as far as I can. So, doing an internship in BA was a great opportunity. Writing this testimonial made me so nostalgic, I can´t believe my time there for now is over. I hope one day I will visit and travel around South America because 5 months were definitely not enough.
