The Tango, TEFL and Spanish
The Tango and Argentina are inseparable. Tango is Argentina and Argentina is Tango. This hypnotic, mesmerising and sensual dance is one of the most important parts of the culture of Argentina and its birthplace, Buenos Aires.
Tango belongs to Argentina and especially to Buenos Aires. They are like Siamese twins.
Tango is one of the most important parts of the culture of Buenos Aires. The city and the dance belong together. Buenos Aires and its unique culture must be understood before you can understand the background and the magic of this dance.
The Tango is practised everywhere. In dance halls, in the parks and in the streets.
The modern Tango that today is practised and performed by Argentinians and foreigners alike, started in the late 19th century as a dance of the poorer Italian immigrants to the Rio de la Plata area, principally Buenos Aires to the south and Montevideo to the north.
In Buenos Aires the Tango became very popular very quickly. It began to merge with the culture of the growing city of Buenos Aires.
Today the Tango is world-famous and very popular. It is taught and practised in Tango schools all over the world. You may be lucky and get asked to dance in the street with an expert.
For Tango enthusiasts who would like to stay in Buenos Aires and also learn Spanish, the easiest way is to teach English and take a Spanish course.
Staying in Buenos Aires, earning money through teaching English and learning Spanish is the perfect way to indulge and immerse yourself not only in the Tango but also a different way of living and a new perspective on life.
Teaching English will pay the bills and learning Spanish will help you enjoy the Tango experience and communicate better.
Use your training to your advantage. Use it so you can realise more than one dream.
Imagine being able to learn and talk to your Tango instructors and understand the instructions.
Even if you want to watch Tango shows and the other magnificent attractions that are in Buenos Aires, your Spanish knowledge will go a long way to ensuring you enjoy yourself.
The birthplace of the Tango is “La Boca”. It is a colourful district and was home to many Italian immigrants in the 19th century.
La Boca is still the place to be when it comes to the Tango.
The streets of La Boca are full of dancers and the houses are decorated with Tango images.
Most restaurants in La Boca have live Tango shows.
There are of course many Tango schools in Buenos Aires where you can learn the dance or improve your skills.
