She gave me an answer, but since i brought up the subject she decided that i would give a rinco'n cultural about it :) Btw, the answer she gave me is that she really has a rioplatense accent, but she teaches with a "general latinamerican" accent, since that's how the spanish teachers' association decided. And that when the other spanish teacher, who's from Mexico, began teaching, whenever they would talk to eachother the Mexican teacher kept on asking her to repeat what she said because she wasn't used to my teacher's accent.
