About the Training Center
Located in the Torre Bellini neighborhood of Buenos Aires, the Bridge center is hosted in the 25-story WeWork office center, offering first-class facilities in the heart of the city. The modern center is walking distance from one of the liveliest pedestrian districts in town and surrounded by restaurants, cafes, and shops.
IDELT class sizes are small in order to enhance interaction and learning, with a maximum of just 12 students per course. Since Bridge in Buenos Aires also offers English language instruction, you will conveniently complete your practice teaching sessions with English language learners from the local community.
When not in class, IDELT trainees can enjoy use of the center facilities with high speed Internet, including the multi-level mezzanine lounge, kitchen, rooftop with grill, and meditation room for studying, planning lessons, or relaxing. The center location is just two blocks from beautiful Plaza San Martin, a peaceful escape full of elegant trees and shaded benches in the midst of the city. It is also located near the subway, metro bus, and Retiro train, making it easy to travel within the city.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
The capital of the largest Spanish-speaking country on the continent, Buenos Aires is a bustling city of over 9 million people, making it an ideal location to get IDELT certified and teach English. The Bridge center is located right downtown, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, museums and other attractions.
IDELT trainees can enjoy Buenos Aires’ French-style architecture, Italian heritage, and cultural sophistication, all of which combine to give the city a distinct feel, earning it the nickname “The Paris of South America.” Buenos Aires is renowned internationally for world-class soccer teams, thriving tango culture, scrumptious cuisine (especially beef), and, more recently, amazingly affordable prices.
Housing Options During the IDELT Course in Buenos Aires
Homestay (4 weeks: $1,200 USD)
In this type of accommodation, you will have your own bedroom and either a shared or private bathroom in the host’s home. Hosts provide breakfast and dinner, and they often enjoy spending time during meals chatting with students. All of our homestays are middle class, many are single-parent households, and they may or may not have children living at home.
Homestays are located in attractive homes in safe neighborhoods. Distances from the schools vary from a few-minute walk to a 30-minute bus ride. During your homestay, you will be given a key to the house and are free to come and go as you please; however, as a guest, you should be sure to respect the routine of the people with whom you are staying.
In order to be accepted into our program, local hosts are carefully screened and must meet BridgeTEFL’s stringent requirements. Many homestay providers have been in our program for years and have consistently received excellent evaluations.
Hotel/Hostel (4 weeks: $1,050- $1,500 USD, depending on availability)
Hotels and hostels are available within a short distance of the downtown training center. Hostels provide a more economical alternative to hotels, though unlike a private hotel room, standard service for hostels places you into a dorm room with 2 to 8 people.
