Spanish Immersion: Literature, Culture, Cine
About Our Spanish Immersion Series
We are reviving our “Spanish Immersion” series from years prior, due to requests from our visitors and community. This series is comprised of 4 modules: Market trips, Food Preparation/Kitchen Vocab, Crafts/Hands-On Activities, Literary/Cultural/Artistic Activities. Each month, we´ll host an activity that falls into one of each of those four modules.
The experiences are not cumulative, which makes them flexible. You can come to one, or you can come each week. We can accommodate all levels of language-learners, but these experiences are designed with an intermediate language-learner in mind. Perhaps you´ve had enough exposure to Spanish at this point that it´s no longer fun to sit in a class with worksheets, but you´re lacking opportunities to practice your repertoire and expand your vocabulary?
Our immersion activities are flexible, fun, and didactic. They´re like “regular” cultural experiences, but with a special emphasis on language-learning and communicative exchanges. There´s only one rule: Only Spanish can be spoken!
Let´s make friends, practice Spanish, and learn a thing or two.
Literature, Culture, Cine
This module in our Spanish Immersion series highlights an aspect of Oaxacan culture through literary excerpts, film shorts, or other cultural elements. We´ll go over them with our host Mitzi, who has both teaching and cinematography experience. Together we´ll highlight relevant vocabulary and practice our conversational Spanish while deepening our understanding of Oaxacan culture and relevant social themes.
