Why study Latin American Spanish?

Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world after Mandarin. 90% of Spanish is spoken in Latin America. This is an opportunity to explore the language of a continent with its own voice and identity.

What and how are you going to learn? 

The courses are delivered using a participatory approach, giving students opportunities to interact with each other and benefit from regular tutor feedback.  During the course, we will look at the main differences between Latin American Spanish and European Spanish, as well as some of the varied lexis used in Latin America that has been influenced by indigenous and African languages. Students will also have the opportunity to express themselves through debates, role plays and games. Classes will be themed around diverse range of sociocultural and political contexts. Topics will also include Latin music, influential authors, politicians, women and figures of interest. The aim is to broaden horizons and break down prejudices, contributing towards a more inclusive and understanding society while having lot of fun!
