Spanish Department

La Casa Hispánica



La Casa Hispánica hosts many cultural activities during the academic year, including weekly informal "cafecitos" with the language scholars, movie nights, poetry readings, potluck dinners for students and department faculty, dance performances, and concerts. These activities provide an opportunity for students across the college to enjoy many aspects of Hispanic culture as they practice their Spanish language skills in an informal setting.

In addition, La Casa is a residence hall for two department language scholars (graduate students from Spain and Argentina), an HA, and 16 Reed students, who wish to consolidate their language skills and further explore Hispanic culture. More information on La Casa

Language Scholars

Essential members of the Spanish department, our two language scholars (one from Argentina and one from Spain) live with students in the Casa hispánica and provide cultural expertise in planning activities. In addition, the Language scholars lead weekly "conversation groups" for students enrolled in the first- and second-year language classes and are available for consultation for all students.

¡Buenas! My name is Francisca and I am a Spanish Language Scholar from Argentina. I studied History and Latin American Literature in Buenos Aires. I believe that getting to know different cultures is the best way to learn about them. I love having deep conversations and exchanging ideas, so you are welcome to get in touch with me anytime. ¡Nos vemos!

¡Hola! My name is Marta and I am the Language Scholar from Barcelona, a beautiful city in Spain. I studied Modern Languages and Literatures focusing in Spanish and English, and this year I finished my master’s degree in Spanish as a Foreign Language. I love teaching my language and talking about my culture. I wish this year the students enjoy the process of learning about it!
