The course examines the Argentine popular culture through material, spiritual and ideological manifestations that "jump out at the eye" of the traveler, since they represent the Argentine people and identify them as such. The city (downtown and its margins), food, music, soccer, and myths are manifestations created and/or consumed preferably by the popular classes that we will study. In addition to accompanying the immersion in Argentine culture, the course also intends to be a transition with the 300 courses, hence the place given to brief and continuous written and oral participation. Based on television, literary and culinary fragments, photography and cinema, videos and music, students will discuss the topics to improve their language skills in terms of comprehension and production (written and oral). During the classes, grammatical corrections will be made, while students will be assisted with support exercises to improve their expressive production in Spanish.

The University of Belgrano utilizes a 45-minute contact hour whereas the United States higher education system utilizes a 50-minute contact hour. All University of Belgrano courses represent the 45 contact hour amount and an estimated US credit calculation based on the contact hours. Each University of Belgrano transcript will include the number of hours per week and the weeks in the semester, so US universities may calculate the appropriate number of US credits for students.
