The school year starts in February and finishes in November. In private, public, boys, girls and co-educational schools, classes run from 7:30 am to 1:30 pm. School subjects are similar to those here in Australia, including Science, Mathematics, Languages, Art, History, Sport and Geography. School uniforms are required at many private schools and some public schools, but this often just means jeans and a school polo.
The official language of Argentina is Spanish, one of the most commonly spoken languages in the world!
The capital, Buenos Aires, is on the same latitude line as Sydney, so enjoys a similar climate with mild winters and the occasional stiflingly hot day in summer. Further South the temperatures drop, and the Northern parts of the country (Mendoza and the north-east) are dry and warm.
Depending on daylight saving, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane are between 13 to 14 hours ahead of Argentina.
