Spanish Conversation group

People who are interested in practicing their Spanish have been meeting twice a week during the 2007-08 school year in order to converse in Spanish about numerous topics. Here are a few comments about the Tertulia.

“La tertulia es fantastico para aprender y practicar español. Hoy la tertulia fue bien. Hicimos un ejercicio donde usamos nuestro español. Me dio la oportunidad a practicar mi español mucho. Gracias”.

“Generalmente me gusta tertulia. Es un buen oportunidad a practicar mi español y hablar con otras personas. También puedo aprender sobre la cultura de países hispanos y repasar las reglas gramáticas y vocabulario”.

“I really like the way tertulias are structured. I come so that I can practice speaking and being in an informal environment helps me a lot”.

“I really enjoy tertulias. If possible I would still attend even if not taking Spanish classes. Topics covered have been educational and exercises have been fun!”

“Cada semana podemos hacer intercambios con otros estudiantes de varios programas de la universidad.

“Posiblemente la materia de la tertulia es un poco más práctico que algo material de la clase regular”.
