  • If you learn Spanish at AMAUTA Buenos Aires you will not only learn Spanish; most likely, you will also learn some “lunfardo”. Lunfardo is an argot or slang of the Spanish language, which developed at the beginning of the 20th century in and around Buenos Aires, Argentina. Lunfardo developed with the arrival of many immigrants from Italy, Spain and France. Most immigrants spoke their own dialect instead of standard Spanish and Italian.

    Realismo mágico

    Realismo magico Latin American literature particularly gained global attention during the second half of the 20th century, mostly because of the international success of the style known as Magical Realism. This genre of fiction blends magical elements with real atmospheres, therefore it gets a surrealistic character. Some of its most important exponents are Gabriel Garcia Márquez from Colombia (who received the Nobel prize for literature in 1982), he wrote One Hundred Years of Solitude; Jorge Luis Borges from Argentina, who wrote Ficciones; and Isabel Allende from Chile, who wrote The House of the Spirits.

  • Rainforest

    Rainforest The Amazon Rainforest in South America represents more than half of the planet’s remaining rainforests, and it holds the largest and most species-rich flora and fauna of tropical rainforest in the world. For example more than 2,000 different kinds of butterflies are found in the forest. The rich flora and fauna is fed by the immense Amazon River basin, whit a yearly rainfall of 150 inches. That’s a lot, knowing that this amount of rain would get most cities up to their ears in the water after a week. The jungle includes territory belonging to nine countries: Brazil (60%), Peru (13%), Colombia, Bolivia, Ecuador, Suriname, French Guiana, Guyana and Ecuador.
