Montevideo, Uruguay  


About The NRCSA Center

The NRCSA Center in Montevideo is housed in a renovated two story building. The first floor facilities include the reception area, administrative offices, four large classrooms, a library, a fully equipped kitchen, a living and dining room area with a television, an outside terrace, and a yard where students can spend their breaks, meet after class and take part in the Friday night barbecues. The second floor of the building contains the student residence.

All teachers are specialists in teaching foreigners. Their experience, motivation and confidence make learning a real pleasure. A communicative method is used to teach the students Spanish. This allows the student to feel confident in all situations by emphasizing the practical use of the language. The needs and requirements of the student are determined upon arrival, and the student is placed in classes designed for their level.

The Center is located approximately 5 minutes walking distance from the beach main Centre of Montevideo. Close by there is a sports center where students can play volleyball, basketball, tennis and soccer (futbol), or make use of the gym.


About Montevideo

Montevideo the capital of Uruguay, is located on the Rio de la Plata on the southern most tip of the country's South Atlantic coast. It is a modern metropolis of a million and a half inhabitants and the city is the seat of important national and international events.

The main attractions are the ramblas (boulevards) that follow the beautiful and lengthy shoreline which are, without a doubt, one of the finest luxuries of the city. Montevideo's European influence is evident, as it stretches along avenues, boulevards and tree-lined streets on which modern buildings are being erected alongside buildings of days long past, a testimony to the different periods of the city's history.

Visitors should be sure to go to Ordonez Park to see the rose garden and the La Carreta monument. Other sites include: the Spanish fort which provides a spectacular views of the city from its hilltop location; the National Museum of Fine Arts; the Legislative Palace; the Plaza Constitucion/Indenpendencia; Museum of Natural History; and the local beaches of Ramirez, Malvin, and Pocitos.
