Argentinean Language and Culture Scholarships Programs is a result of special agreements and relationships between two Spanish educational organizations, the Government of Argentina (State and Municipal) and other institutions. The Scholarship program has been designed to enhance educational and professional opportunities for students, and will benefit the Argentinean Language and Culture Scholarships Programs as it continues to pursue the increase and diffusion of knowledge.
The goal of this Scholarship program is to give the students an in-depth understanding of the culture and civilization of Argentina, and how it fits into the wider spectrum of Latin America. A series of lectures and readings on the historical, philosophical, literary and artistic development of Argentina and Latin America form the basis for class discussion. In order to familiarize students with their new surroundings and the academic system, an orientation period is scheduled at the beginning of the program.
This program concentrates on the development of greater fluency and accuracy in the spoken as well as the written language. Students will be exposed to aural-oral practice through the presentation of oral reports and class discussions based on short literary pieces by Hispano-American authors. Greater accuracy in the language will be achieved through intensive practice of the grammatical structures. Class time is also devoted to developing native-like vocabulary, enabling students to participate in a wide range of practical, social, professional, and academic discussions, and developing the higher functions of the language, such as making hypotheses, supporting opinions, and dealing with abstract thought.
