Student Organizations and Spanish Language Groups

Language Groups

One of the goals we pursue in the Spanish and Portuguese Department is to help the students develop their skills and abilities in the target language outside of the classroom through different activities, such as:

Study Table

Collaborative writing and conversation workshops to prepare students in 101 and 121 levels for assessments.  Faculty and graduate students from the Spanish Language Program will serve as facilitators.

Tacita de café

This extracurricular activity will bring together students registered in Spanish 127/197 /207 and other NU heritage students not currently registered in Spanish classes (i.e., Spanish heritage students from other schools in the University) to celebrate, appreciate, and speak their heritage language/culture, through interactive activities on and off-campus. This activity will be co-organized by faculty and students.

Círculo de lectores

The main objective of this extracurricular activity is to create a reading-friendly environment and to motivate students to continually develop and strengthen their reading and speaking skills. This activity will bring together students of 121 and above levels in Spanish to read short selections in Spanish and then engage in discussions.
