Buenos Aires:

With just over a month to go before the World Cup kicks off in Germany, preparations are already underway in soccer-crazy Argentina. The country's passion for football is now getting institutionalized. Faced with the very real possibility of empty classrooms during Argentina's World Cup Games, Argentina's Ministry for Education has decided to install television sets in classrooms so that the football matches can be shown in school. Teachers will also be given special training on how to turn the World Cup into a learning tool.
