Two thematic units. Argentina vs. Paraguay - compare and contrast
Unit 1. Paraguay, la excepción a la regla
Throughout history people have moved, sometimes just short distances, other times across oceans. Both Argentina and Paraguay are countries peopled by immigrants from many lands who together have forged new realities. Whereas in Paraguay the indigenous people and their language are very much still alive, that is not the case in Argentina. Paraguay is landlocked and much more rural. Find out more.
Unit 2. Buenos Aires, París del Nuevo Mundo
These two contrasting units, one about a sophisticated metropolis, the second about a forgotten backwater, serve as examples of the great differences between the countries of South America. Take a walk around Buenos Aires. The grammar includes the passive voice.
I loved Buenos Aires. Walking around, visiting some of the best bookstores in South America, eating empanadas on the street, taking pictures in San Telmo. What a treat.
