by learn a language journalist
Alexis from the U.S. joined us in 2019 for our University Spanish Program. Here is his story…  I wanted to participate in this program, Mente Argentina’s University Spanish Program, because of the new cultural perspective it would be able to provide me on Latin America, for a voyage as far beyond my cultural and linguistic comfort zone as I can get in a Spanish-speaking setting, and the comprehensiveness and rigor of the different levels of Spanish I could take. The first two reasons listed go hand in hand. By going past my comfort zone and what I know well, I […]

by learn a language journalist
8 Tips on How Unschooling Families Learn Spanish Unschooling is a philosophy of learning based around the notion that all children are born with endless natural curiosity. According to unschooling, humans learn best in non-coerced, self-directed situations.

A variation of homeschooling, unschooling looks different for every family because it caters to each family’s unique needs.  Keep […]

Daddy, being a classy gentleman, certainly agreed to try to help Rosita with this and then arranged to meet her once at her house – and […]
