What do i_take_after?

  1. 1. Amazing Republic Gaucho Enormous Nation Tango Incredible Nature Andes Francisco
  2. 2. Customs, traditions, lifestyles Since Argentina s a big country customs, traditions and lifestyles vary a lot depending on where the people live. We will compare two different lifestyles , the life in the city and in the countryside. We might as well make clear that we live in the city. Country Life City Life In the city we wear "international clothes", we care about brands and fashion all over the world. We can say we worry more about "the look " of the clothes we wear. Country people wear really different clothes from the ones we wear in the city. They are more into 'traditional clothes', they dont care much about the brand, and some of the clothes they own are made by them.selves The item of clothing they wear are often working clothes. Sasha
  3. 3. In the capital city We eat more 'supermarket' food than country people, but we also eat 'homemade" food. We eat international dishes even though we also eat traditional food such as empanadas and barbecue. Sasha In the country Food: This part of the population eats most of all, traditional food. They grow their own vegetables, fruits, crops and raise cows, porks and chickens. They cook their meals using their products.
  4. 4. City life and country life City life implies lots of cars and streets, flats, and noise. None of those are found in the countryside. In some areas people still use horses as a means of transport or they just walk. You are surrounded by nature in the countryside, there isn't much noise. You only hear the animals or the wind. It's peaceful, and relaxing. People are more connected to the natural world. Everytime I go to the countryside I love to watch the sky at night. It’s so full of stars. The wind on your face makes you feel alive. Life in the city is faster. Everything goes faster than in the countryside.We have more rules,more timetables, more schedules. Not that it's something bad, but I don't know if I would be able to adapt to country life. Robberies, are also a serious problem in the city. They don't happen so frequently in the countryside. Sasha
  5. 5. Some traditional music styles in Argentina are tango and folklore. But the young people who live in the city don't often listen to this kind of music. They usually listen to other types of music called: cumbia, national rock, electronica, pop, metallica and some others. However, the young people who live in the provinces do listen to folklore. TRADITIONAL MUSIC IN ARGENTINA Cumbia Rock Electronica
  6. 6. TANGO Tango is a style of ballroom dance music that originated among European immigrant populations of Argentina and Uruguay. It is traditionally played by an orchestra which includes violin, piano, double bass, bandoneons and sometimes flute, clarinet and guitar. Tango may be purely instrumental or may include a vocalist. Tango music and dance have become popular throughout the world. Belén
  7. 7. THE MUSIC WE LISTEN TO We listen to different types of music: -Cumbia -Rock Nacional -Electronic music -Indie -Pop -Reggae -Reggaeton -Heavy metal Belén
  8. 8. FOLKLORE Folk dance is a form of dance that reflects the traditional life of the people of a certain region . The steps of folk dancing are passed through generations, rarely being changed. Some of the instruments played are: the guitar, the violin, the drums, the quena (wind instrument), the flute , and some other typical percussion instruments. They are called “sonajero de uña, charango, pinkullo and caja”.
  9. 9. Argentina Tourism Argentina is a beautiful country to do tourism because we have great natural landmarks, interesting culture and history and a tourist friendly society. Argentina is a great country to experience new horizons and being in contact with the South- American cultures. Francisco
  10. 10. Typical Argentinian food MAM EMPANADA is an individual pie made with thin bread dough or puff pastry filled with a salt or fresh preparation and baked or fried in oil or fat. The filling can include red or white meat, fish, vegetables or fruit. ASADO is usually beef cut exposed to heat from fire or coals in order to cook slowly. I Different types of meat are cooked that way: pork, lamb, goat, fish, chicken, shrimp and sausage The LOCRO is a stew made with squash, beans, corn or potatoes consumed in the region of the Andes especially. Máximo Empanadas Asado Locro I love barbecue and chips! Max
  11. 11. MATE is an infusion prepared with yerba mate leaves, a plant native to the basins of the rivers Parana, Paraguay and Uruguay . It has a bitter taste due to tannins in the leaves. For this reason there are those who like to sweeten it with sugar or honey. DULCE DE LECHE is a kind of caramel spread which is widely used in desserts such as pies or cakes or ice- creams. It is made with milk and sugar. ALFAJOR is a traditional snack which consists of two biscuits with a sweet filling and usually dipped in chocolate, icing or powdered sugar. The filling is usually "dulce de leche", although there are also fruit , chocolate and mousse "alfajores". Máximo Mate Dulce de leche Alfajor
  12. 12. Sport Football in Argentina Football is the most popular sport in Argentina. People just go into the street and play matches. Argentinian football has some very important teams, these clubs are called Boca and River Plate. There are Argentinian football players playing all over the world, Messi, the Kun Agüero,Tevez are some of them. A typical weekend plan for friends is to have "asado", barbecue on Sundays at midday and then watch the matches. Argentinian football history is really important. We had a very famous player, Maradona, who scored the goal of the century, God's hand goal , it was called. Argentina won two World Championships, one in 1978 and another one in 1986. Joaquín
  13. 13. •Who do you take after? •What are your goals and dreams?
  14. 14. Sasha Who do I take after? • I resemble my ancestors especially because of two reasons; they were passionate and ambitious. We also share a love for languages and knowledge. My ancestors come from Europe; they came to Argentina because of the war in search of better job opportunities and a better life. They came from Italy, England and France. • One of my grandparents came from Bolivia hidden in a train at the age of 9. He was really brave and could make a man of himself with the help of Argentina. Here, he met my Italian grandmother with whom he married and made a family. As far as I know they were able to fulfill their dreams. • I have both my mum’s and my dad’s genes really marked. I have my dad’s eye colour and freckles but I have my mum’s general physical traits. I am also pretty stubborn, something I got from my father, I believe in my word and in what I think. • In the future I see myself living in New York, acting in films all over the world, being what I am passionate about: an actress. I see myself being recognized for my good work, having a family and travelling all around the world.
  15. 15. Belén • I don’t resemble my family physically but I do in personality. I am a kind, sentimental person, like my father, and I find it difficult to express my feelings. I am shy, like him. • I don’t like to be shy. It’s very difficult to make friends but when I am with people who I know very well, I’m not shy. I don’t want to be shy but it’s very difficult for me to change that. • I think that y ancestors’ dream was to have a family, some money to support it and friends. My grand-mother met my grand-father in France and they decided to come to live to Argentina . •I admire my ancestors because both my mother and father’s family have always been very united. •My dreams are very similar to those of my ancestors’ because I want to have a family, a good job and friends. For me, they are the most important things in life. •In the future, I see myself working a lot, married and with a son. •At the moment my objectives are: finishing school, getting a good job, having a big family, having a nice house and being happy.
  16. 16. Aylín Who do I take after? Goals and Dreams • In some ways I’ m very similar to my mom and in other ways I resemble my father. • I am outgoing and sociable, like my mum but I am quite reserved too, like my dad. • I don’t like my dad’s personality because I can’t say what I feel and think. • My great grandparents and my grandparents came from Spain, Italy, Portugal and the Czech Republic. • I don’t k now much about them. But I can say that I admire them because of all the hardships they had to go through. • One of my great grandmother’s sisters was the first woman doctor. I really admire her because I also love to help people. • In ten years’ time I imagine myself living in another country with a university degree in architecture. I hope I have travelled a lot around the word and met a lot of people
  17. 17. Francisco • Goals and dreams • I really try to avoid thinking about the future because I’m very realistic about the world; we are probably going to die before we see the real impact of the consequences of our society. Nevertheless, I still hope to become a politician to make a better world for my children, because I think that real changes are done from a place of power. I don’t believe that a single man can change much if he isn’t a politician or has a real impact on peoples’ mind and thoughts. •
  18. 18. Maxi WHO DO I TAKE AFTER? My goals and dreams • My paternal great-grandparents immigrated to Argentina during the First World War and my maternal grandparents emigrated in 1961. They came from Belgium and Italy. They came to Argentina because in their countries they had no work or they were poorly paid. I think they were successful because they were able to achieve their goals: They got good jobs, improved their quality of life and were happy. I think that my dreams are small or unimportant compared to theirs. They are also very different because times have changed. I have some physical aspects from my ancestors, such as black curly hair and their eye colour. I’m also quite tall, like both my grandparents.
  19. 19. Rocío Who do I take after? • My ancestors on my mother’s side came from Armenia escaping from the war, they just wished to be safe, happy, and comfortable. My ancestors on my father’s side came from Romania. • I admire my ancestors because I think that I would have never been able to put up with what most of them have suffered. They were really brave. • I think that maybe, if I had lived at that time, I would have had the same dreams as them, but now my dreams are different. • In the future I see myself happily living in another country and doing all I wish. • I don’t know if in Rumania the people have the same physical traits as my dad’s, but I resemble my father. We all have the same type of eyes, we are thin and tall. I like the way we look. I like the fact that we don’t have common traits, but we are not so exotic either. I would like to resemble more my mother’s family because they have blue eyes. They are half Italian, and half Armenian.
  20. 20. Stefi • Who do I take after? My goals and dreams • One of my great great grand-mothers was an aboriginal. She used to heal illnesses using some local herbs. My grand-mother learnt that skill from her mother because she was interested, I am interested too. • I admire my grand-mother because she had a very hard life. First her parents didn't want her to study because at that time it wasn't common for women to study but she graduated as a teacher. Secondly she married a man, they had two daughters but when the second girl was born he abandoned his family and my grandma had to work hard to bring up her children alone. Finally, when she married a men who really loved her, he died .But she fought hard to achieve her goals and nowadays she's a strong happy woman. She married again a very good man. I love him, and she is finally happy. • My grand-mother's dream was to be a teacher and have a lovely family, mine is to be a singer and have a lovely family too so I think that our dreams are different and similar. Her dreams came true because she was determined to get what she wanted so if I fight for my dreams I think I will be able to fulfill my goals, in the same way she did. • I am going to study industrial engineering and I hope when I am 25 years old I'll be working in an enterprise and living my dream of singing and helping the environment.
  21. 21. Milagros •My great grandfather came to Argentina from Armenia hidden in a ship. The name of the ship was “America” and he got on board thinking that it would take him to the United States but instead, the ship came to Argentina. That is how he got here. He was escaping from the genocide that was taking place there. •My grandparents on my father’s side came here from Spain due to the Second World War. •I think I physically resemble my mother because we both have the same hair and skin colour . •I think I resemble my ancestors because I am as ambitious as them and I want to be successful in life too. •In twenty years’ time I see myself as successful singer, making a living on music.
  22. 22. Iván • I think that the person who I resemble the most, is my grandmother on my mother’s side because at the age of 18 she left her family behind and settled down in a big city like Buenos Aires all by herself. My dream is to emigrate to New York City and work as an actor there. My grandma and I have in common the choice of a big city. Art has always been present in my family. I got my taste for reading and painting from my paternal family and the pleasure for photography and music from my maternal family. My grandparents always disliked the idea of me becoming an actor but now I can understand why. It was really difficult for them to get an education and as they know I have the possibility to study they think I am wasting my chances in life. When I try to compare my dreams with my ancestor's dreams I can see how difficult it was for them to leave their family and immigrate to a completely different place in search of their objectives. Now I realize how lucky I am of having education and so many other privileges. My grandparents had a lot of children to bring up and as they where very humble, they couldn't send all of them to school. I am absolutely proud of having ancestors that followed their dreams to give me the opportunity to improve my future. I wish that pursuing my dreams I can fulfill my objectives and help my feature descendants too.
  23. 23. I’m going to talk a little about my family and me. My ancestors are from Hungary, Lebanon, Italy and Spain; they came here because of the First World War. I know that they came here like 70 years ago at least. I think that the reason why they decided to emigrate was the search of a better, easier life. I’m not sure if they got what they expected or even if they could fulfill their expectations but I think they did. Now days, some people ask me if I resemble any of my ancestors physically, and I think that I do. Some say that I look like my mom, but others say that I resemble my dad. I think I have my dad’s nose, body and way of walking but I also have some features from my mom; like her mouth. I love painting the same as my grandmother, aunts, and my great-grandmother. Nicolás My dreams are not so different from my ancestors. My mom is a lawyer, but she has always liked art, one of my aunt is finishing studying Scenography, and the other is a decorator. I feel more identified with one of my grandmothers, who studied Fine Arts, because I also want to study that and become a professor at university level. My grandfather, who I identify less with, is a lawyer. He does not like art as much as my mum. I don't know what inspired my ancestors but I think that the wish of a happy life. Also, I think that especially in my mom’s family they were inspired by Jesus, we are all Christians, unlike my dad’s family.
  24. 24. My ancestors are Italian. They emigrated during the First World War, between1900-1915.They were business people, so I think they came here because they knew that Argentina was starting to trade with the world and they wanted to take advantage of those opportunities. Everybody says that my face takes after my paternal grandfather and I resemble maternal grandfather physically. I like to sail, like my maternal grandfather and to paint, like my maternal grandmother. I have not really defined my expectations and dreams for the future yet, so I can't compare them to my ancestors’. Lino
