¡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.

A historic environmental justice opportunity is unfolding in Minneapolis. The East Phillips Neighborhood Institute is preparing to buy the Roof Depot building and construct a cooperatively-run community hub centered around an indoor urban farm and affordable housing.

But EPNI is far from the finish line and in a critical phase of crowdfunding. Though we are pursuing grants and other long-term funding, we have immediate costs this fall that can’t wait. If you can help EPNI raise $50k by this Friday, August 25th, we’ll receive a crucial $10k matching donation, further increasing the impact of your donation.

We’re at just under $30K of our $50k goal, and we have five days left to get there!
