- Food is usually NOT SPICY at all in Argentina, Bring your own Tasbasco sauce!
- Pack warm clothes if you come in US or European summer, and light if you come in your winter…. We’re upside down!
- Public hospitals are free, but not as practical as private medicine. Make sure to have traveler’s insurance!
- Exchange rate is sometimes better when done “under the table”. We can help you avoid “shady” places while still getting a good rate!
Thursday nights you have a date: play with us. We gather and we play different games, charades, guess who, taboo, Argentinean “truco”, and whatever you want to propose. This activity is great to get to know each other, talk and have fun.
We offer you information and suggestions to join tango classes, in the best places in Palermo, not the ones that cost a fortune, the real Argentinean ones, where locals go. Send us an email and we will make the reservation for you. These classes (given by a third party) do have a charge but it is usually not high.
Do you know what “truco” is? Well, luckily for you we offer a special activity where we will teach you how to play the most popular card game in Argentina. You just need to be able to wink an eye (you’ll see why), and be a good “liar” (you’ll see what that means).
At BAse, we offer you the chance to get inside any industry you would like to see up close. We set up professional visits where you get the opportunity to do networking in your area of work, which can help your own business grow. Write us about your company or profession and we’ll send you a tailor-made proposal.
- This activity may have an extra charge
BAse has got a beautiful roof top with a grill, beer cooler and our beloved pets. We organize ‘asados’: a popular gathering where we make a big barbecue, we drink Argentinean wine and enjoy the sunny sky of Buenos Aires. It is the perfect opportunity to meet people (both local and other foreigners) and to be a part of our custom. This activity is usually scheduled on weekends.
On Wednesdays we offer an activity outside the classroom, we visit a farmer’s market in Palermo. The idea is to practice the language with a purpose (get the vegetables for the salads in the asado!), encourage you to speak Spanish with real people, try to lose the fear and realize how much you’ve been learning with us!
Fridays were made for movie night. We will screen Argentinean and Latin American films and maybe one night you can pick your favourite movie from back home. Oh… and if you’re lucky, there’s popcorn!
