BC Language Assistant in either Argentina or Chile?
I wish to work as an LA in either Argentina or Chile next year but can't decide which to do. Argentina is a max of 6 months, Chile is 10 months. I'm worried it will be more expensive in Chile, the Spanish too difficult to learn from Castellano and I may not like it, also the flight prices and pollution in Santiago cause me some concern. Has anyone got any useful advice or experiences they can share please?

Well, Castellano is a variant of Spanish. It's sort of as if you were saying that American English is more difficult to learn than British English. So you're comparing the same language. The same grammatical rules apply and everything what changes sometimes is the meaning attached to words. But of course that's a cultural issue. Americans say elevator and English say lift but it's the same. So.... you won't have problems with that.
