Time Abroad: Fall 2005
I chose to study abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina for a variety of reasons. I looked for an opportunity to advance my Spanish language studies, and I wanted to live in a part of the world that I had never visited before.
I wanted to experience an entirely different culture from mine and I knew that South America would provide that for me. Buenos Aires is a great metropolitan city that offered a vast array of cultural events.
I also chose Argentina because I would be there for five months, and economically, I was better off living and traveling in South America that I would have been in other countries.
Finally, I was immersed in the culture through my home-stay, and I directly enrolled in the universities with Argentine students.
