What’s it all about?
Spanglish is well known as a mixture between Spanish and English, especially present within English speaking areas where Latin American influence is huge. When saying this, it is inevitable to think about places like Miami or Puerto Rico, however guys, I been living in Melbourne for quite a long period and believe me, you Melburnians are surrounded everywhere by Latin Americans like me!
So, join us, learn some basics of Spanish, and get a first overview about this curious phenomenon called Spanglish!
What will we cover?
Have you thought about what does “living la vida loca” mean? Well, the main idea of this class is to get an introductory vision about the Spanish tongue, general enough for you to understand some bits of Ricky Martin’s or Shakira’s songs. It is also intended to show you some of the main Spanglish expressions used nowadays.
Thus, the main topics to be covered within the class are:
- Personal presentation
- Basic phrases
- Helpful vocabulary
- Spanglish expressions
