Best Spanish Speaking Countries to Study Abroad In
  • Opening Intro -

    Studying abroad is a great experience and can be very effective for those attempting to learn a new language or perfect one.


There are some basics you should look into before committing to a study abroad program in any country:

  • You need a passport:
    It can take up to six weeks to receive a passport after completing the application. Keep in mind: the actual application takes time, too. Plan ahead and apply while you’re still considering which country to study in—if you don’t already have one in mind
  • You may need a visa:
    This is best found out by searching on embassy websites or dropping by your local consulate (if you have one). Your study abroad program may help you get a student visa, or you may need to secure a tourist visa. Learn about renewal processes, and be sure to have proof of onward travel before getting on your flight
  • You need cash:
    Secure your own currency and possibly the currency of the country you’re traveling to. It’s best to talk with your study abroad program leaders to find out if it’s more effective to exchange money at home or abroad in the country you decide to study in

Pro Tip: You need your passport to return home, too! Make sure to keep it safe and secure during your trip.

Argentina is known for its European-feel and rich culture. Argentina is great for those looking to perfect their Spanish, but who already know a lot of the language. People speak with a heavy and unique accent and use a lot of slang, which can be difficult for a complete beginner to pick up on. Get ready to learn the new verb tense “vos” and say goodbye to “tú” and “usted.”


Chile is conveniently located on the water and the mountains. So, if you’ve ever had trouble deciding on a weekend at the beach or in the mountains—this is the place for you. Learn Spanish along one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. You’ll have easy access to the Patagonia region. Although most of this lies in Argentina, it’s easily accessible and spills over the border.

other valuable tips:


With a neutral accent and stunning landscape, Columbia is a country you’ll never forget. Study along the beaches of Cartagena, or stay inside the walls built to protect the city from pirate raids. You could also choose a larger city, such as Bogota, to immerse yourself in the language. This is a great location for beginners in the Spanish language.
