Summer Seminars Abroad
for Spanish Teachers

July 7-24, 2014

Lima, Peru

Click here for the complete description.

The Center for Latin American Studies and the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at The Ohio State University announce this year's intensive Summer Seminars Abroad, a 16-day workshop in Spanish linguistics in Lima, Peru. The purpose of the program is to provide participants with an opportunity to analyze and practice the Spanish language in a natural linguistic and cultural context, and to receive university credit for that experience.

The program, scheduled for July 7-24, 2014, is intended primarily for Spanish teachers. Application is open, however, to graduate students from Spanish and other disciplines who have a demonstrated ability in the use of the Spanish language and a need for this type of course. Both native and non-native speakers of Spanish are invited to apply.

The goal of the intensive seminar program is to make "textbook language" come alive for the participants, who themselves may have limited access to spoken Spanish in its natural context--as well as to Hispanic cultures, which are that very context. Faculty, course format, and location will facilitate the participants' search for applications of the material to their own teaching.

This year's program offers two linguistics seminars, taught by Professors Lunn and Morgan. Each course is available for three (graduate) semester credits only, and students may choose only one. A third option is the class in Beginning Quechua, taught by local staff.

In Lima, class will be conducted four or five hours a day, for a total of ten days; time will be spent on organization and analysis of data in order to add a new perspective to the out-of-class language experience. In order to take better advantage of the linguistic and cultural resources once in Peru, students will be asked to begin reading course materials before July 7.

Graded credit for successful completion of the program will be issued on an official Ohio State transcript. Ungraded (S/U or Pass/Fail) credit is not available for this program. The content and rigor of the Summer Seminars Abroad are consistent with the academic standards of The Ohio State University.
