La Montaña Spanish School
January 6-31, 2003

I attended the Spanish School "La Montaña", located in Bariloche for four weeks. I'm really pleased with my progress. I can now converse with the locals and carry on basic conversations with confidence. As you can see from these photos, the students and teachers like to have fun!
