Argentina is known around the world for its very famous fútbol teams (soccer), fútbol players, and championship wins. Fútbol fans in Argentina are devoted to their favourite teams and ‘show up’ for every game whether they are singing in a stadium, yelling at a local pub, or celebrating at home. It is said that to truly understand the Argentine culture, one must experience a fútbol game with local Argentines; therefore, we urge every student taking a Spanish course in Buenos Aires to round up their friends, leave their books at home, and head to a game in the city.
