Two thematic units. Many teachers like to explain the language differeces through the Spanish speaking world. Here is your chance with lots of examples.
Unit 1. El español de América: el caso uruguayo
The language spoken around the Spanish speaking countries iffers from country to country. There are words that are different from country to country and there are even verb conjugations that are different. Use the language of the Buenos Aires region, which includes Uruguay, as an example and compare. Of course the beloved Mafalda is included.
Unit 2. El Galpón y el teatro uruguayo
Some of our students are innocent and often do not first see how freedom of speech, in this case in a theater, can get people in a whole lot of trouble. Compare and contrast with the students own reality. Does your school have an annual play? What kind of plays do the students present? Drama (both meanings!) in Uruguay. Also artistic creation in jail. Wow!
