    Talking Re: Hello~~ Just requesting some help.

    Argentina está localizada al Suroeste de América del Sur.

    En el continente, Argentina es uno de los países más facinantes y de mayor riqueza cultural.

    La lengua oficial es el Español. (El idioma oficial es el Español is also correct).

    Su historia es única (Tiene una historia única / correct).

    Se cree que la Argentina fue habitada hace 13,000 años (correct, here you may use an article since Argentina stands for the territory rather than the country. When refferring to the country there's no need to use an article since it is a proper name.

    Durante el Siglo XIX, se ejercía la esclavitud en Argentina.

    El desarrollo y la prosperidad de Argentina continuaron creciendo ya avanzado el Siglo XX convirtiéndose en uno de los países más ricos del mundo.

    My Project has just arrived. I’ll continue helping you later on. Sorry. (You’re doing fine).
