Official language


Spanish is the official language of Argentina and is spoken by the overwhelming majority of the people. Lunfardo, a local dialect mixing Italian and Spanish, is widely spoken in Buenos Aires. Italian, English, Korean, Yiddish, and a number of indigenous languages are also spoken.

Religions


Roman Catholics make up 91 percent of the Argentine population. Judaism, Protestantism, and a number of other Christian and non-Christian religions are practiced. Although the constitution guarantees freedom of worship, the Roman Catholic Church has long enjoyed a privileged position similar to that of an established church. The 1994 constitution repealed the requirement that the president and vice president of Argentina must be Roman Catholic. However, the reform maintained the clause mandating that the “federal government shall uphold the Roman Catholic Apostolic faith.” "Argentina" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
