    Bridging the gap: Connecting Spanish-language students to content and community

    Kathryn Ringer-Hilfiger

    Kathryn-Ringer Hilfinger, Visiting Assistant Professor of Spanish, would like to share her experience in creating and teaching a new course offered by the Spanish program this fall, titled: “Spanish in Action: Advanced Culture and Communication for Everyday Life.” She will discuss the role of an advanced culture and communication course within the language curriculum and the importance of connecting second language students to the community.

    RLSP 199 serves as a bridge between Spanish 105 or Spanish 106 and advanced classes on literature and culture.

    Please join us on Tuesday, November 18 at 4PM in Hollander 241 for discussion and refreshments!
