Introduction and Task
Finally your parents have agreed to fulfill your life long dream of traveling abroad by yourself. No more having your younger siblings tag along. No more being dragged by your parents to places that you find boring. This trip will be all yours.
You will be flying with AEROLINEAS ARGENTINAS from Philadelphia to Buenos Aires, where your grandmother will pick you up. You will live with her during your time in South America. While in Argentina for three months you will be attending school as a guest student in order to improve your Spanish. You will also have the opportunity to travel to at least two different places of your interest, besides being able to explore the capital of Buenos Aires.
Your friends and family at home expect you to report back to them about the exciting people, places and things you are experiencing. Since you brought your laptop and your digital camera with, you will e-mail everybody back home at least 5 e-mails during your three month stay. Each e-mail will cover one of the topics below:
- Facts about Argentina
- Buenos Aires
- Great places to visit
- Government / History
- Food / Recipes (Extra credit)
Each step in the process will receive a separate grade and is due by a specific date. All assignments will be submitted to the dropbox on this website. In the subject line of each e-mail include the number of the e-mail that you're writing, but DO NOT use the # symbol!!! It does not allow the item to be submitted!!! All e-mails will be written in your own words. Any information that is plagiarized will receive a zero.
