DLML hosts El Cafecito conversation event
Conversational event conducted in Spanish
On Monday, September 9, 2019, at noon, the Department of Literature and Modern Languages hosted its first El Cafecito Spanish Conversation Table of the semester on the first floor of the Carl DeSantis Building.
Over forty students, most of whom are enrolled in our Spanish courses, participated in the event. Three Spanish faculty members, Professors Yvette Fuentes, Grace Helguero-Balcells and Carolina Zarate, served as moderators. During the hour, students had the opportunity to chat in Spanish about various topics of interest in a relaxed atmosphere and were served Cuban pastries and Colombian coffee.
The department will host two more El Cafecito events this semester, on Tuesday, October 15, 2019 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. and again on Friday, November 15, 2019 from 12-1 P.M. Both of these events will be held on the second floor of the Don Taft University Center. El Cafecito is open to all members of our community who wish to practice their Spanish. All levels are welcome.
