Spanish Immersion: Market Trip
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.
We´ll meet at Tlayudona, have some delicious Cafébre coffee and get to know each other. Then we´ll take a walk to an adjacent neighborhood market while we continue our chat. Once at the market, we´ll walk around and talk about different local ingredients. Each visit will focus on one or two particular vendors and their products. You´ll get the opportunity to practice your Spanish, learn about local foods, and build a relationship with local merchants.
Your Host, Mitzi
Mitzi has teaching, cinematography, and managerial experience in and around Oaxaca. She is a dazzling host and for the sake of our Spanish Immersion experiences, let´s say she only speaks Spanish!
