It irons out the differences, 27 Jun 2005
I have argentinian roots, speak the language and often I am asked to recommend a language course for visitors to the country. A course for Latin America like this one is better than nothing but it treats all countries as a whole and irons out the differences. It would be better to have say a course for Argentina only, with the language inserted in the culture. The course would also have the argentinian expressions and colloquialisms. Only this way you can step into the country equipped with its language and cultural context. Could we please have a language course for Argentina, not just a generic Latin American course, without ironing out national identity.
