Transcript ^Quieres hablar espaftol? Spanish instructors ready students for a breaking of the language barrier Very little english spoken here! Begur, a town off the coast of north western Spain, has very few english speakers. Students often traveled abroad to learn Spanish by constant exposure to the language. -Photo by Michelle Lehmann The Spanish-speaking population in Houston is tremendous; a handful from Spain, some from South America and the Caribbean, and many from Central America. Often the language barrier created confusion with the lack of the ability to communicate. Spanish instructors like Senora Maria Alvarez tried to break down that barrier. "By breaking down these barriers we seek to promote tolerance and understanding among us, so that the result will be a more harmonized and united community," Alvarez said. Some majors, like communications, required a language as part of the core requirements. Many students, especially in Texas, chose Spanish. Beginning in the spring semester of 2001, the Spanish classes at UH were required to use the books \Sabias Que...7, and iQue te Parece?. They emphasized speaking Spanish in class more than the previous books (which stressed the written language). But some students found it was hard to learn the language unless they spoke it on a daily basis. "It's hard to learn Spanish in school, because you only spend one hour of class time speaking it," senior media production major Ashly Alberto said. ^Como se dice...? Students in Sra. Alvarez's class read questions from the book. Students would have to read and answer the questions in Spanish Photo by Michelle Lehmann %s+ * ^W * ^a\\ *^ ^*<S l^k OK, Let me explain this in English. Sra. Alvarez explains to her students the differences between the verb endings in Spanish and English. The multiple verb tenses in Spanish often confused students. -Photo by Michelle Lehmann 72} AcaJc However, the instructors believed that more class discussion in the language they were studying added to the experience, and enabled students to learn more effectively. -Michelle Lehmann apamisli \75
