Do not choose Ailola. Once you pay they take all the money out of you and you are left alone in a mediocre student setting. I did not feel great. I am sorry to have chosen this school. All my friends were to El Pasaje de la Española and they had a fantastic experience. This school seems to be run by a German who does not like Argentina. It is just a question of making money...

Ailola Spanish School
I was really satisfied with my decision to study Spanish at Ailola Buenos Aires. It is located in one of the most impressive buildings in Buenos Aires, Palacio Barolo. The office staff did an incredible job at making you feel welcome. They assisted me in a lot of things and helped me to get the most out of my stay. Also the teachers did an incredible job und finally I can use the subjuntivo correctly. They always tried to align my classes with my personal interests. I can highly recommend this school to anyone who thinks about learning Spanish in Buenos Aires.
I really enjoyed my time at Ailola Buenos Aires. My teachers were talented, creative, friendly and helpful. It was fun to study Spanish in such a comfortable atmosphere. My school was very welcoming, with lots of spaces and activities to do in the afternoons and in the evenings. Moreover, I met a lot of wonderful people from different countries there. I am a sociable and easy-going person, so it was important for me to be surrounded by people, who didn’t feel shy talking on different topics and especially do it in Spanish, which we all were not good at. It helped me greatly to go to the next level of my knowledge of the language. At the lessons we were not allowed to speak our mother tongues, and English, of course, so it was a good experience to try to speak only Spanish.
The family which accommodated me maintained the same practice – speaking only Spanish or, if the worst came to the worst, communicating by gestures. I lived in my own room on the first floor. It was very cozy, spacious and light. The entire atmosphere in the family I lived put me in the academic process. I was never refused help I needed. I suppose, a place you live in plays not the last role in your intention to study and the mood you have every morning and every evening.
Now I am proud of my Spanish, I can easily talk to native speakers, watch films and videos, read books and magazines. The courses at Ailola Buenos Aires really helped me achieve a goal – to learn the language in a short space of time.
To me individually the key role always belongs to a warm atmosphere during the classes. I’d like to thank the teachers, who uncovered little genius in every student of our group. The courses were saturated but never tiring. We had a great chance to take a dive into the midst of fascinating events.
There were many different students in my group: people of different age, education, background and profession. Someone decided to learn Spanish seriously, someone just only discovered the world of the Spanish language, someone wanted to open the mind and broaden his outlook, and someone just preferred to combine the training with the walk along the streets of Buenos Aires.
A couple of weeks in Ailola Buenos Aires gave me a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the methods of teaching language and get a foretaste of the Spanish people and their way of life.
