The course content will be focused on Argentina language and culture including the use of vos, the pronunciation found in Argentina called yeísmo, slang, customs and traditions including regional differences, tango, famous neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, inclusive language, and diversity and inclusion.
The course will include guest lectures, clips and short films, analysis of song lyrics, writing practice, online discussions, and grammar review and practice outside of Zoom class time.
