  • Spanish Working Group: Organizing Meeting

    2020-03-11 @ 18:30 - 20:30
    Cathedral of Learning - First Floor Commons, 4200 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15260, USA

    Are you interested in learning Spanish? What about teaching it? PGH DSA is planning a few different language-related projects for the coming months. For those who already speak intermediate (or higher) Spanish, we will be holding conversation groups for members to practice, as well as to learn vocabulary that can be particularly useful for organizing, community outreach and supporting Spanish-speaking members of our community. These groups will be facilitated either by those with Spanish teaching experience, and/or by native speakers. If you want to participate in these groups as a learner, OR if you have teaching/Spanish experience and want to help with planning and leading the groups, we will be planning these events together at this meeting.

    If you’re interested in learning Spanish, but don’t have any experience, we also want to see you at this meeting! We are hoping to launch a weekly “course” this summer for beginners, and we need your help and input to make those lessons as useful as possible.

    Finally, we’re considering launching an English conversation group alongside the Spanish one, as a form of mutual aid for the growing population of immigrants in Pittsburgh who are working to learn English. No teaching qualifications needed to help with this one - just a willingness to talk with people who are learning English and help them out as needed.

    If you’re interested in getting involved with any of these initiatives - as a learner, a teacher, an organizer, etc. - please come out on March 11! Snacks will be provided.
