Club HoLA - Hour of Latino Awareness
Club HoLa is a Spanish language and Latino culture club focused on helping teacher candidates explore language learning as they experience language learning themselves. Participants develop their "Spanish ears" and become familiar with Latino children’s literature. Many also become part of a study abroad opportunity in Chile, which is organized each summer.
Club HoLa meets for approximately one hour each week utilizing children’s books in Spanish as an introduction to Spanish language and Latino culture. A native Spanish speaking teacher facilitates the gatherings using only Spanish.
