Our families are spread all over Argentina: from Jujuy to Tierra del Fuego. The most popular regions for students are: Jujuy, Salta, Tucumán, Mendoza, Córdoba, Buenos Aires, Santa Fe, Ríos Entre and Tierra del Fuego.
Participants can either live in villages, small towns or huge cities like Buenos Aires. They will not only experience a new culture and language, but also learn about a new place, a different landscape and climate.
Host families in the programme "Exchange in the secondary level"
It is very important that host families are appropriate and responsible. COINED has many years of experience refining the selection process to choose only the most suitable host families and a lot of time is devoted to this process. Selected host families must be willing to share their culture, language and daily life with the students.
Host families are also assigned with a COINED tutor, to assist them with any situations that may arise and provide advice when needed, to ensure the exchange experience is positive for both the student as well as for the family.
The Argentinian family
The typical family in Argentina is composed by a father, a mother and two or three children. Also, the same house can be shared by an aunt or uncle, maybe grandparents also. With the programme "Exchange in the secondary level", participants get in touch with all family members.
The relationship between the family members is tender: giving kisses and hugs is more than common.
Host families are pleased of taking you to new places or involving you in the families' activities. They help you to get used to the new culture and they let you participate in family affairs.
Through COINED´s trips, High School Exchange students / Juniors students have the opportunity to visit and learn more about Argentina.
Twice a year ( May and November), COINED organizes trips to the North and South regions of Argentina.
In these trips, the students have the opportunity to observe the local culture and enjoy breathtaking landscapes.
In May, students set off to the North of Argentina. They are amused by the colourful “Cerro de los siete colores” in Purmamarca and the partially re-constructed Inca ruins in Tilcara. Also, students get to enjoy the Calchaquíes Valleys and the stunning Iguazú falls.
In November (spring time), students head off to the South of Argentina. There, they can visit the lovely cities in Patagonia, sail to have the chance to see whales from a close distance, see penguins in their natural environment, go to the lakes and visit the stunning Perito Moreno Glacier.
Both trips last about 12 days each and the price includes the pick up services, meals, accommodation, excursions and 24/7 tutoring.

From COINED we make a comprehensive and integral monitoring of the Exchange Program that is based on giving support and assistance to the involved parties: the student, the family, and the school. In order to achieve this aim, COINED has a tutor team that is 24/7 at their disposal to assist them in their needs and to make sure that everyone involved in this exchange is having an excellent experience. This tutoring is either carried out by regular phone calls, by e-mail, chats, or by visiting the students and their families. Schools provide tutors with a report of the students academic performance once every two months.
