Education in Argentina is divided into 3 stages:

High School Exchange in Argentina : Testimonials

Eleanor does seem to be thoroughly enjoying her stay in Rosario. Thank you so much for your email and we have heard from Eleanor – she is very much enjoying her stay with Lucia and her family who sound wonderful. Thanks once again for your excellent coordination and assistance in making this a great experience. Eleanor


"This past year has been a once in a lifetime experience and has given me different perspectives on my life and the world. My year has been full of new experiences, new views on the world, and new friends. I have become part of a family, which is one of the best things that we can appreciate in Argentina. Family life here is so different! Above all I have improved my Spanish and experienced the Latino culture. I'm happy I enrolled for this program with Nacel! I had full support, affection and my rep was available every time I needed her. An unforgettable year!!!"


“My experience with the Nacel program in Rosario, Argentina was nothing short of fantastic. Not only did my Spanish improve dramatically, but also I had the opportunity to meet amazing people and make lifelong friends. I will never forget the day I met my gracious host family – my new “mom” and “dad,” as well as my “brother” and “sister,” each gave me a customary Argentine kiss on the cheek, followed by an enthusiastic tour of their home. By the end of my first day, I felt like part of the family.
Learning a second language is challenging, but doing so in a Spanish-speaking environment is an incredible experience. The immersion nature of the program has no strings attached – I attended classes, participated in family life, and made friends – all in Spanish. My family and the program coordinators were extremely helpful – they gave me the support I needed as an exchange student and helped me with the process of language acquisition.
Every time I talk with one of my Argentinean friends, I am reminded that my experience has taught me more than a foreign language and culture. As an exchange student, I developed independence, confidence, problem solving skills, and the ability to connect with people who do not necessarily share my cultural background.
I encourage anyone who is interested in the Spanish language or Latin American culture to seriously consider Nacel’s program – I know from experience that it will be one of the best adventures of your life."


Living in a different country has given me opportunities to immerse myself in another family, culture and life. I have matured a lot on a personal level and realized that every day is what I do with it. Every day brings me a new challenge and a new memory. I will never be able to forget the friends I met and the memories I made. 


Living in a different country has given me opportunities to immerse myself in another family, culture, and life. I have grown so much as a person and realized that every day is what I make of it. Every day brings a new challenge and a new memory. I will never be able to forget the friends that I´ve met and the memories I´ve made. A part of me will always stay in Argentina.


I arrived in Argentina on Wednesday, February 17th. I spent 5 days in Cordoba with the local coordinator and with 2 girls from Germany and another girl from Norway. We had Spanish lessons and we learnt differences between Spanish from Spain and Spanish people talk in Argentina. We also played games in order to learn vocabularies. With the local coordinator, we visited the city of Cordoba, DownTown, Shopping Center... They were always very kind with us and they taught us about Argentine culture: mate, empanadas, asado... It was very useful to spend few days with them, because most of people from this association went to exchange. That is to say that they knew how we felt and what would probably be different from our country and how to behave with these differences.

I am Tess, an 18-year-old outgoing girl from the United States. I embarked on a transformative journey to Argentina last year as part of a two-term program.

Settling in the picturesque town of Arroyito in the Córdoba Province, just 115 km (71 mi) east of Córdoba, I immersed myself in the local culture and community.

During my exchange, I seamlessly integrated into the school community, creating lasting connections and fostering a sense of belonging. The prom party stood out as one of my most unforgettable moments.

Argentinian high school students, especially during their last year, have traditions like custom class shirts, hoodies, and memorable graduation trips, often coinciding with their 18th birthday, adding an extra layer of significance to this period of transition.
