As part of their study of national identities, students in the Spanish AP Language and Culture classes recently studied about Argentina.  Students learned about the different governments of the 20th century, including the dictatorship of Jorge Rafael Videla and the Dirty War.  Students learned how to use the “vos” form of address when speaking to friends as well as learning about the tango.  One highlight was students being able to taste the famous dulce de leche spread as well as yerba mate, a special herbal tea made with a gourd (una guampa).  Students completed their study by reading a short story by famous Argentinian author Enrique Anderson Imbert and a news article about the inequities that women soccer players face in comparison to men’s soccer teams.
