We were born

in 1971 organizing bilateral exchanges among German and Argentinean high school students. As time went by we became innovative offering intercultural exchanges when the transportation and communications weren't like today. We knew that by making these intercultural experiences possible we were collaborating with the construction of better world. Then we founded the first school for Spanish as a foreign language to promote the 3er largest language in the world and the first Latin American destination, Argentina.
