Spanish for Social Justice Summer Intensive Beginner Spanish Course
Saturdays, July 6th – August 31st, 2019, 9AM-3PM (5hrs/week; 45 hrs.)

Algarabía Language Co-op/The Center for Language Justice and The People’s Forum are offering a summer intensive Spanish course to folks who have little to no prior knowledge of the language. Through weekly social justice themes, and using a communicative and integrated skills approach, participants will improve their listening, speaking, reading, and writing of the target language. Special focus will be given to learning vocabulary and community organizing terminology relevant to contemporary social movements in the U.S., and Latin America.

ABOUT US:
At Algarabía Language Co-op/The Center for Language Justice, we see language learning as a meaningful, collaborative and transformative process reflected in our training in hands-on communicative and task-based language teaching approaches and our use of popular education in the language classroom. We seek to support the holistic development of all language learners—and, in particular, working-class folks of color— as they become competent multilingual speakers. We devise classroom activities and use textbooks and other original didactic materials that meet our participants’ needs and that represent the linguistic and racial/ethnic diversity of the Spanish-speaking worlds.
