The Tango / Eat Red Meat; 2 thematic units - Intermediate 2
El tango
Decir Argentina es decir carne

'Dicen que el tango tiene una gran languidez, por eso lo prohibió Pío diez.' The Pope tried to stop the tango: lyrics, dance, music, all! What was so offensive that the Vatican tried to intervene and have it barred world wide? Practice the preterit and the imperative and decide if this is just another musical style and dance or if the tango is a way of celebrating machismo.

Do you eat meat every day? Is your dinner incomplete without meat? If your answer is yes, you eat like most Argentines. Compare the pampa and Patagonia. Contrast both with your own country. And all of this while learning accents.
