Two content-based thematic units on ecology, a subject of great interest.
Unit 1. La Región de los Lagos
Chile's Lake District, with its forests, mountains and lakes, is closer to our image of the Rocky Mountains than of South America. 'Es indispensable que vengas a conocer.' Practice the subjunctive and get rid of those stereotypes about Latin America.
Unit 2. Chile: ¿maravilla económica o desastre ecológico?
Our supermarkets stock fruits and vegetables from around the world. Because the seasons are inversed, Chile is one of the biggest providers of fresh fruits and vegetables during the northern hemisphere winter months. Think about the positive and negative consequences of industrial farming and their impact on the ecology. Knowledge is power!
