Welcome to the Work-Life Spanish Music & Conversation Club! This club was started with our beginner students in mind and will be focused on improving your vocabulary and conversational skills with the help acclaimed learner's podcasts, such as Notes in Spanish, catchy musical tunes and telenovelas such as the world famous series Destinos.
Friday October 2nd 6pm - 7pm ET "La carta" Episode 1 $15 Zoom
This fall we're taking a radically new turn to highlight the infamous telenovela series Destinos. Destinos immerses students in everyday situations with native speakers from Mexico, Spain, Argentina, and Puerto Rico through the entertaining story of Don Fernando’s intriguing past. Every episode of Destinos covers new grammatical concepts, vocabulary, and cultural practices. This cheesy 90's soap opera is full of overdramatic facial expressions, sappy romantic subplots and clothes that would have made even the 80s cringe, but that's what makes it so loveable and such a great choice when it comes to learning Spanish!
Prior to each session students will watch a pre-selected episode and complete a comprehension activity sheet in preparation for the group discussion. All classes will be conducted almost entirely in Spanish. Please click on the link in your confirmation email to be directed to the lesson materials.
