Listen to radio stations in Spanish, watch online news in Spanish, read news about the Spanish-speaking world in print, and come and discuss what you’ve learned with your classmates. If you can read periodicals, understand the gist of most TV or radio programs in standard language; if you can narrate a story or relate the main points of an article and describe your reactions… join other lovers of the Spanish language for conversations in Spanish.
Rendez-vous in a fun, welcoming environment to discuss the news while your “Profesora” points out your mistakes and keeps the conversation flowing.
Each week we will — or your instructor will — select an article, tv or radio program, etc. for ensuing discussions in the following week.
While little preparation will be required, please keep in mind that the success of these “Prácticas Conversacionales” lies on everyone being able to engage at his or her level and preparation is often key.
This class can be taken in combination with another more traditionally structured class or on its own.
