I had such a good time with API. I didnt realize how much of a difference the program made for my experience, so I was very lucky to get with API. My director, Carmen, was amazing. If anything was wrong, she changed it for us. She made sure we were comfortable, but also very independent. I had an amazing time in Buenos Aires and highly recommend it.
The classes were perfect for what I wanted, they were easily graded and I ended up passing all of them. I did all my homework, but it wasnt nearly as stressful as my classes in the states. The teachers were understanding that we were still learning Spanish so took it easy on us.
Health and Safety:
there is a lot of petty crime, so always watch your stuff on the public transit, and dont walk alone at night. you dont need to worry about much except petty theft though
you could go out almost any night, and stay out until 4am
