My 9 weeks in Argentina over the summer were ones I will never forget. Will and Simon made the entire process of applying and finding a suitable company extremely easy. They hear out your requests and do a great job of placing you in safe, fun neighborhoods. I lived in a shared apartment with various other travelers and a laidback mother and daughter. Great environment for learning Spanish but feeling like I had space as well.

The social media company, called Taringa!, I interned at was innovative and a pleasure to go in to everyday. I took Spanish classes for the first month which helped me initially a lot. Buenos Aires is an unforgettable city with a number of excursions only a bus ride or cheap plane ticket away. Do this program if you're even considering it.

How can this program be improved?
My one complaint for the summer was the group of roadies that were there, had I had a group I meshed with better, I think I would've had a better time going out and traveling. I know thats not really their fault, maybe market the program to better schools in the US and abroad? I think this program would be a hit if it got around to Ivy League schools, NESCAC schools, and other smaller elite liberal arts schools in the North East and California.

I spent 3mo in the Road2Argentina program and it was simply incredible!! Will and Simon work tirelessly to make sure that your experience is exactly what you want it to be! I did 6 weeks interning with a healthcare based NGO before shifting gears to do a 6 weeks shadowing in a hospital (with a few weeks of travel in-between ;) ) and both experiences were amazing and highly useful to my future professional goals. The coordinators are there to make sure that you have one of the best experiences of your life! When you get there you instantly are connected with other Roadies and have a squad to roll around Buenos Aires: there was never any shortage of group events! The only reason I can't give it 10/10 in every aspect is simply the price: as a broke post-grad, it was definitely an expensive gap year experience. Although understandably, it is quite difficult to find short term housing at an affordable price, so i'm not sure I could have done any better on my own. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ That being said, outside of housings costs, everything about the program exceeded my expectations and [in the larger scheme of undergrad and medical school debt] it was well worth the cost!! 9.8/10

How can this program be improved?
honestly if it was a bit more affordable is the only thing I can think of... other than that everything was absolutely incredible and I wouldn't change a thing!

I absolutely enjoyed my time in Buenos Aires. R2A is a great program and was very helpful in answering all of my questions before I even arrived in Argentina. My internship at the hospital and at FIC was amazing. The people I met inspired me and gave me great advice. I enjoyed exploring Buenos Aires and doing a lot of things for the first time. I definitely recommend going abroad and R2A because the coordinators are awesome. They are very helpful and organize fun events to help you explore Buenos Aires.

Road2Argentina was an awesome way to get an easy introduction to the Argentinian culture. It was so good to have Will and Simon as points of contacts when faced with a completely new environment. They were incredibly helpful and responsive with any questions we might have. The housing situation was very comfortable and safe - I had 2 other roommates that Will and Simon did a great job matching up. Thanks for a great time! I'm glad I got to be a Roadie :)

My summer in Buenos Aires with Road2Argentina was one of the best experiences of my life. My Spanish went from conversational to near fluent in just 10 weeks, I traveled to countries and places I could only dream about, and I lived in a city full of cultures from around the world. The program can help set you up with an awesome host family or a more independent apartment. The coordinators are always available if you need help, and they are also very fun and will go out with the group too.
