We are glad to announce our Call for papers for APrIR On-Line

Castelli, having our writings published in specialised journals is

APrIR is one of the very few teachers' associations which offers a
journal, and a copy of every issue is sent to important libraries in
Argentina and abroad.
The Editorial Committee, headed by Prof. Nora Séculi, reminds us
