No. The main, and official, language of Argentina is Spanish. But, like Uruguay, the Portuguese language is a required subject for schoolchildren. For there's heavy traffic back and forth over both countries' borders with Brazil.

Additionally, many of the immigrants, from Spain to Argentina, come from the northwestern province of Galicia. Indeed, Galicia is the place of origin of the Portuguese language within the Iberian Peninsula. And so immigrants to Argentina tend to know, speak and understand Galician, Portuguese, and Spanish.

In fact, Portuguese continues to be spoken in the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires. For the city still is the destination of Galician immigrants to Argentina. Also, the city still is the host to the continued popularity of tango dancing, music playing, and singing. And the lyrics to tango songs sometimes are in Lunfardo, which is a slangy mix of Brazilian Portuguese; dialects from Africa, the Caribbean, and Italy; and English.

No. The official language of Argentina is Spanish. Like most of South America, Argentina was settled by Spain. And it was no accident that Spain settled most of South America, and Portugal only colonized Brazil. For the Treaty of Tordesillas, in 1497, divided the non-Christian world into zones of influence for Spain, and zones for Portugal. The line that divided the zones just happened to run in such a way as to give Brazil to Portugal, and Argentina and most of the rest of South America to Spain.

But Spanish isn't the only language that has shaped Argentine culture. For there has been a heavy immigration from Italy. And there also has been a heavy immigration from Galicia, which is a province in northwestern Spain. In fact, Galicia is the original home of the evolving Portuguese language. And so Galicians tend to know, speak and understand Galician, Portuguese, and Spanish.

A popular destination for Galician immigrants to Argentina is the capital city of Buenos Aires. And so Portuguese is one of the capital city's spoken languages. Additionally, Portuguese has a historical role in the evolution of the tango style of dancing, music playing, and singing. For one of the languages is Lunfardo, which is a slangy mix of Brazilian Portuguese; dialects from Africa, the Caribbean, and Italy; and English.
