Argentina - Exchange

All inclusive



Details of the trip
Argentina is famous for tango, pampas and its landscapes full of natural wonders.

Schools in Argentina have a high academic standard and offer a warm and welcoming environment. Classes can take place in the morning or afternoon. Free afternoons or mornings are used for sports, tango or foreign language classes. There are many compulsory subjects: natural sciences, social sciences, physical education, mathematics, Spanish literature, English, music, technology and economics. The presence of other subjects, such as drawing, biology, physics, art, chemistry, French, Italian, and Latin depends on what the school offers.

Central and South American families are distinguished by their welcome, warmth and curiosity about the world. They are often extended families and the parents are very present and protective of their children. All family members collaborate in household chores and expect respect for rules and impeccable behavior. Parents are a fundamental point of reference in the children's lives, with a constant and very attentive presence.

BEC British European Centre

 “Da cinquant’anni BEC lavora per e con la scuola al fine di organizzare programmi scolastici all’estero, vacanze studio e programmi di alternanza scuola lavoro per quei giovani animati dal desiderio di viaggiare, di incontrarsi con ragazzi di altri Paesi e di crescere in un mondo senza confini.” 
Da sempre il viaggio è il leitmotiv del lavoro che BEC svolge con esperienza e serietà; il viaggio come ricerca, conoscenza, approfondimento e integrazione, con l’obiettivo di offrire ai giovani gli strumenti per acquisire autonomia, non solo linguistica.

BEC si rivolge agli studenti e alle famiglie che credono nei programmi all'estero, confidando nella loro utilità, non solo quale approfondimento delle conoscenze linguistiche, ma anche e soprattutto, quale ampliamento degli orizzonti per porre le basi per un futuro ricco e multiculturale.

BEC si rivolge alle famiglie che desiderano avvicinarsi all’Exchange Program, per valutare la possibilità di permettere ai propri figli di trascorrere un periodo di 2, 3, 5 oppure 9 mesi lontano da casa, frequentando una High School (scuola superiore) e vivendo presso una Host Family (famiglia ospitante), con la consapevolezza che entrambe le sfere avranno un ruolo molto importante: il confronto con un altro ordinamento scolastico e il conseguente adattamento da una parte; il punto di riferimento per una nuova vita all’estero ed il luogo ideale per l’inserimento in una nuova comunità dall’altra.

Oltre  all’Exchange Program, BEC promuove programmi di accoglienza in Italia, propone soggiorni studio per adulti (16+) combinati all'ottenimento di certificazioni linguistiche o periodi di volontariato e stage, organizza vacanze studio estive per adolescenti. 
 BEC è membro di CSIET (Council on Standard for International Educational Travel) e IALCA (Associazione Italiana degli Agenti e dei Consulenti Linguistici).

Lo staff BEC è altamente qualificato e a disposizione per qualsiasi esigenza, dal momento della prenotazione sino al rientro al termine del soggiorno mettendo a disposizione assistenza in Italia e in loco 24 ore su 24 durante il soggiorno. 
Passione, professionalità e flessibilità caratterizzano lo staff BEC, che sarà al vostro fianco passo dopo passo per realizzare il vostro progetto all’estero!

South Africa : Why go there?

  • South Africa is also called the Rainbow Nation, indicating the unity and multiculturalism of South Africans who have united after years of apartheid.
  • Two oceans, the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, meet at the southernmost tip of the country.
  • The country offers an incredible variety of landscapes and the most diverse wildlife: in South Africa you can see everything from the lions in Kruger National Park to the penguins in Cape Town.
