My goals for study abroad are to immerse myself in the spanish language and begin to experience one of the many vibrant cultures that Latin America has to offer. I also wanted to have an internship within the healthcare system so I could learn the language in a medical setting so I needed somewhere that was developed enough to have hospitals similar to our own. Argentina satisfied all of these for me and also has the added bonus of a particularly interesting political history. I also love that on occasion it feels like Europe, so really I’m hitting two continents with one flight. For my time in Buenos Aires I know that I want to do some travel outside of the city so I can experience the full spectrum of what Argentina has to offer. I plan on traveling to the Salta region to experience a more traditional Andean culture, Bariloche to get a feel for Patagonia, Mendoza for the agricultural centers, and hopefully to Iguazu to experience the more tropical region as well. If I manage all of these trips, I’ll hit every region of Argentina which would be incredible! Additionally, I know that the spanish spoken in Buenos Aires includes different verb tenses and synonyms than we may have learned at C of C so I tried to come in with an idea of some of those beforehand.
