Study Abroad

Hi, I'm about to go on a study abroad to Argentina (mostly Buenos Aires) at the end of this month. It's going to last about six weeks, which would be a long time for a vacation, but not very long at all for an immersion experience. I've been studying Spanish about 3 and a half years and I feel like I'm at a good point in terms of skill to go abroad. So what I want to ask is, can y'all offer any tips to maximize the opportunity? Obviously I don't want to speak English while I'm there; if I'm not talking/listening to someone I should be watching local TV or reading the paper, etc. But does anyone have any less obvious suggestions? (They can relate to Spanish/Argentina in particular, but any immersion advice is appreciated.) Thanks!
