Roberto, I don't know if this is the appropriate place to ask this, but here goes.....I was wondering if any of you know if a school(private)would accept a student for just three months. I was thinking of going to Argentina during the summer school break, and seeing if I could put my daughter in a school over there so she can learn to write and speak correctly the Spanish language and to have the experience of being in a school setting in a foreign country. Thanks in advance to anyone who can give me any information.Gloria.

Gloria, I am in the same boat. This may not be the answer you were expecting... the way I will handle it is just the normal argentine way :-) that is, I will find that place that WILL accept my daughter. As you may know, we never follow the rules to the letter and am positive that place *does* exist somewhere in BA.

Roberto,
Might you know of a Montessori preschool or play groups, ballet or gymnastic classes for 3 year olds in BA. We are also seeking a source for organic foods. Gromit

Richard, for organic foods your best bet is Talloverde.com They only farm what is in season, have a great selection, pick it and have it delivered within a day. Very reasonable and if something goes bad too quickly they are fabulous about replacing it. Really nice people - feel free to tell them I referred you.
For a Montessori school try in Olivos:
Montessori de Olivos
Salta 2821, tel. 4790-2540

A great resource for kids is http://www.circuitoscortos.com.ar/mapachicos/home.php
and you can pick up their big book at many places. It's a bit longer than a magazine, not as wide, and full of listings.

If I can think of anything else I'll let you know, in the meantime, hope this helps!

Thought Roberto and Gloria maybe interested - my friends are in the same boat, but have had some luck putting their 14 year od in at the Engineering college here... that could be an option if your kids are old enough...

Think it took a lot of persuading and a 50 peso note

I will try to get more info for you

I am just asking my friends about this - how old are your children?

Gloria, I suppose you could enroll your daughter just with a language school here for that period, depending on her age...

Myfrined said this was a good bilinual school set up for school aged children - I don't know if it is what you had in mind...

http://www.lenguasvivas.org/seccion3_1.asp

She told me Lenguas Vivas... I just made a quick google search, this school came up, although it looks like it's based in the South (Bariloche)... I'll check if it is the one she was talking about - but she said it's a bilingual school she was looking at for her teenage daughter...

Thanks. I am familiar with this school. My sister graduated from it. Must be the one in Carlos Pellegrini street?
