Cordoba is the second largest city in Argentina, located in the northern part of the country near the Sierra Chica Mountain Range. Cordoba is a perfect place to learn or improve your Spanish. You will also learn more about yourself and have the opportunity to experience and take advantage of a new culture. Córdoba has developed a well-deserved reputation as an exciting but relaxed atmosphere for intellectual pursuits. Home to some 130,000 students from across the country, the city of Córdoba is known popularly in Argentina as "La Docta", from doctorate, because of its rich academic past. Córdoba today is recognized as a center for arts and learning in Argentina with its many universities, theaters, and museums.
