The internship in Buenos Aires was one of the best experiences I’ve had. It allowed me to combine excellent work experience in a public hospital with exploring the city and nightlife porteño style. Everyone I met was very friendly and helpful and made me feel at home in Buenos Aires very quickly. Connect-123 organized a bunch of great social events with Argentine spirit and although it was winter there when I did my internship, it immediately warmed up the atmosphere and outweighed the ‘polar cold’. I highly recommend it to everyone. Buenos Aires is really as great as its said to be if not better and Connect-123 team know how to help you make the most of it. Just be careful, once you go, you won’t wanna leave!

Connect-123 is the perfect organization for someone considering an internship or volunteer experience in Buenos Aires. They provide all the necessary support you’ll need, without being overly rigid or inflexible. They allow you to choose what you want out of the experience, and do everything they can to find exactly what you are looking for.  With Connect-123 not only do you get an opportunity for an internship that is tailored specifically for you, but you receive other benefits such as local contacts, the opportunity to meet like-minded, yet very different participants, and the comfort of having local support so you never feel like you’re on your own. In my opinion, doing an internship in Buenos Aires is really the best way to not only learn Spanish, but to actually immerse yourself in a new culture, and get a chance to learn why the people and place are the way they are, something that the typical tourist would never have an opportunity to do. The organization I work with has been very welcoming and they’ve done a great job of helping me overcome my second language deficiencies. I’ve seen a substantial improvement since I started in just a matter of weeks. Living the porteño (the name for citizens of Buenos Aires) life style, has broadened my horizons and has been one of the best experiences in my life!

When I initially talked to Steven and the group at Connect-123 in Buenos Aires, I was excited about the opportunities that I could be a part of.  After experiencing what they had to offer, my expectations were definitely surpassed.  I was looking for a way to mix what I had studied, business administration, and the Spanish I had acquired abroad and at school. I really wanted my internship to be both in a Spanish speaking environment and to be career enhancing.  Connect-123 provided a perfect solution.  I worked in a financial group in the center of the city; my days ranged from working with the head of a mutual fund to giving input and doing research for an investment committee.  It was really interesting to see the business environment outside of the U.S., my home country.  I loved my time there, worked with some great people and learned a lot both in Finance and Spanish. Apart from the internship, my life in Buenos Aires was perfect.  The city is unbelievable, it would be hard to ever tire of endless asados (bbqs), a great nightlife and a diverse and international population.  The staff at Connect-123 knew the city well and always went out of their way to let me know where to go and what to expect.  I really felt that Connect-123 was working specifically for me; not only was my experience unique and custom tailored, it was rewarding on a personal and career development level as well.
