English in Buenos Aires?

by bkq

How easy is it to be a tourist in Buenos Aires who only speaks English? I am willing to learn some Spanish, but definitely will not be fluent by the time I go and will be relying on English quite a bit. Will I have a problem communicating?

BA will not be a problem for you. English is spoken by many people there. If you have problems because of language, there will be a third person who can translate.
As with Spain, the younger people will tend to have better English and will often be more confident in using it.
Of course, a few phrases will help you: people will appreciate ot when you say gracias rather than thankyou etc etc

I had no problems finding people who can speak English! :-) I asked the same question about travelling in S America and came back in one piece (and happy, too!)

No problem for 'touristy' communication. Otherwise there is (almost) everywhere somebody to help.

happy travels

"I had no problems finding people who can speak English!" except that they sometimes (oftentimes in my case!) gave me the opposite direction to where I wanted to walk to, so I ended up walking twice as many 'miles' getting back to the correct direction :( But, in these cases, it was not a problem with their English but their 'GPS' not functioning, I suspect! LOL! :-D

The hotel clerks that work in the tourist areas actually attend shool and receive a degree in being a hotel clerk, so they are generally quite professional in their jobs. Many speak English (or other languages) quite well. And are very handy for giving directions, calling a taxi for you, lining up tours for you, etc.

Your profile does not indicate what English speaking country that you are from, but the primary English taught in Argentina is British English. Though there have been American English classes appearing in the last few years. So keep that in mind when you are talking with a native Argentine in English and your English is not British English.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

look at the floor while you walk!

by solcitom87

A recommendation for tourist that is well know by porteños! look at the floor while you walk on the streets!!!!

most of the streets are full of dog mess!!!!

there is no law here that forbids dog's owner to pick up theirs dogs mess! so i'm afraid that walking around Buenos Aires is well complicated and kind of unpleasant too! and it's strange but we are some kind used to it, even we have doing that!!!

Gardel and his mother for sure had his neighbors and histories of chusmerio like in every old villages in Buenos Aires at that time..Chusmerios are the gossip people, you know those ladies who spend the whole day in the window watching people's life? Well, here in Abasto it was not so different!

And the houses are kept exactly the way it was in the earliest times!
