¡Ándale! Improve Your Spanish Skills This Fall

submitted by

Is it time to move your beginning Spanish-speaking skills to a higher level? Are you looking for another course to add into your schedule? The Languages and Cross-Cultural Studies department invites you to consider taking Spa 211 for the Fall semester. Continuing your Spanish study is a powerful way to enhance your resume and make you a more viable job candidate in a market that is looking for global competence and multilingual skills. Spa 211 is the last prerequisite course for a Spanish minor, but even if you’re not able to pursue a minor, adding another Spanish course or 2 to your transcript and resume will give you an advantage in a competitive hiring market.

SPA 211 is Intermediate Spanish, a 2nd yr. language course designed for continuing skills in speaking, listening, reading, writing, and exploring cultures of the Spanish-speaking world, and is intended for students who’ve completed Spanish 112 or the equivalent.

This fall Spa 211 meets MWF 12:30-1:40, on campus. Students, faculty and staff are invited to register. Please spread the word to your Augsburg friends! And if you have any questions, you’re welcome to contact me or Professor Michael Kidd.

Action: Stop HERC – Let Minneapolis Breathe – Tuesday, August 15, 1 p.m.

submitted by

The campaign to shut down HERC is now entering a more public and critical phase. We invite you to join next Tuesday August 15 at 1:00pm at the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners meeting in downtown Minneapolis.

Please RSVP so we can send updates about the event, county meeting rules, and our demands:

This is an important action– the most important for people to join so far in this campaign. A wide range of people will speak directly to the commissioners, including: doctors, union leaders, scientists, teachers, waste workers and experts, and impacted community members. We need to back them. If we create enough pressure now, we can compel the county commissioners to set in motion HERC’s closure. County staff are already preparing a closure plan because of our work this last legislative session. Now we need these elected commissioners to ensure there’s a date attached to that plan.

Please bring your people!

Location: Government Center A2400, Board of Commissioners chamber, 300 South Sixth Street Minneapolis, MN 55487. To get to Room A2400, go up the escalator, then go through security for elevator A (not C) to the 24th floor.
