Buenos Aires, sophistication / Paraguay, backwater; 2 thematic units - Intermediate 2
Argentina vs. Paraguay - compare and contrast
Paraguay, la excepción a la regla
Buenos Aires, París de Sudamérica

Nota cultural: la hora

Throughout history people have moved, sometimes just short distances, other times across oceans. Both Argentina and Paraguay are counties 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.

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

In these difficult times where many people in Europe, especially in Spain, are again thinking of immigration, these units will serve as good exaples.
