This ppt was displayed as final Oral Presentation for the subject LANGUAGE III in IFDC SAN LUIS. The general proposal was: Big Changes and Challenges. Therefore this ppt presents how somebody like Ms. Laura Von Rosk had to cope with such changes as moving to Antarctica. The ppt tries to show pictures and other visual aids, and the speaker should be able to talk with only these visual aids, and not so much text on the board.
