By: Mady Calhoun Hola chicos y chicas! This is Carlota Culture and I am here to tell you about the culture in Argentina. In this part of the PowerPoint there will be information on what people in Argentina sometimes do in their daily lives.
Sports at The Estadio Nueva Chicago Argentina is involved in many sport activities. Fútbol is more than a national obsession then a game for the people of Argentina. They won the World Cup in 1978, and 1986, and the Summer Olympics for soccer, basketball. Tennis, rugby, and field hockey are also popular. To see people play these sports you could visit one of the sports stadiums in Buenos Aires called Estadio Nueva Chicago. I think that it would be really awesome to watch a professional soccer game.
In Argentina you can visit the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. Here you can see popular shows such as the “Official Story” and “9 Queens. A very popular show in Argentina is “Ayúdame a vivir”(Help me live) which is a romance drama musical. I think that it would be very exciting to see a show from Argentina.
Best known culture element is music and dance, particularly tango. You can find street tango performers in the Plaza Dorrego of Buenos Aires. This historic plaza was the sight of the swearing of National Independence in 1816. Today it is the site of the San Pedro Telmo Antique Fair, where street performances by tango dancers, musicians, mimes and colorful characters mingle with the painters, antiquarians and street vendors in a bohemian rhapsody of song, dance and nostalgia. Often sung in slang (lunfardo). Folk music and dance are popular in provincial Argentina. I would really enjoy to see street tango in Argentina.
If you were in Argentina and you wanted to find the Art Museum you could ask someone, ¿Dónde está el museo de arte? This means “Where is the Art Museum?”.
