During our August 16th #LangChat, our participants discussed the prospect of “flipping” a world language classroom. Simply put, the “flipped” model has students learn new information – which would normally be presented during an in-class lecture – on their own at home, often through readings or videos. Class time is then spent practicing and enforcing the new material through discussion and activities.
"As the immigration reform bill hangs in the balance in Congress, it is worth considering the history -- rather, the long histories -- of some of the key issues it tackles. One of them is the status of the Spanish language in the United States and its vexed relationship to the category of whiteness, and to the majority white, English-speaking population."
This is a unique opportunity to taste fine and carefully selected Spanish wines, learn the 5 senses of wine tasting and meet great people. And all this in Spanish!! Wine is a great example of the best of a culture; it’s a reflection of the connections between the land, the people and its traditions. It helps us understand the signs and wordsthat people use to communicate feelings, taste, smell, sight, touch… isn’t that what language is about?
