Explore UT. March 2, 2019. University of Texas at Austin
Presenters: Jocelly Meiners, María Luisa Echavarría and student volunteers
The heritage Spanish instructors in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Texas at Austin participated in the university’s biggest open house, Explore UT. With the help of several of our heritage Spanish students, we hosted two sessions where we welcomed people of all ages from the surrounding communities and schools to learn a little bit about the Spanish language, including linguistic and cultural aspects. We had hands-on activities and games to engage the audience, and we promoted our heritage Spanish track.
