Learn about Argentine Society while Improving your Conversational Skills

Do you want to learn about current events in Argentina and how they are connected with the country’s past? For example, why and how is the stereotype of Argentina as a “European” country in Latin America still productive to certain social actors? What populations have been invisibilized by this myth? What about the First Nations that reside and struggle for their rights in the Southern Cone? Is Spanish the only language spoken in this country? Argentina Today and La Lengua de Buenos Aires are not just conversation courses (although they are that, too!) - they are windows into the city and the country, its cultures, its nuances and the intersection between local and global issues.
