Classroom Ideas

A class could listen to the report noting down the key places in the town, such as ‘plazas’, ‘parques’ and ‘avenidas’. Students could then use Cecilia's account as a model for describing their own hometown.

A group could also use this as the starting point for further research into the culture of Buenos Aires.
