Mi Pueblo

By Claire Pescheret, Span 232 student

In order to catch up with my hours, I attended a Mi Pueblo conversation table this evening. Mi Pueblo is “a relaxed but organized venue” where Spanish speaking students can come together and practice Spanish. Discussion is guided but very general and informal. It was my first time experiencing this type of language practice. I really enjoyed the hour I spent!

There were five of us total, including the student in charge. Everyone was there for a different reason, which was very interesting. Myself and one other girl were there in order to make-up hours for Spanish 232. There was another boy there who had graduated and was coming to the conversation table meetings just to practice his Spanish to help him in his travels. The last member was a senior, who again was just there for practice. No wonder these two gentlemen use this for practice; it was very helpful! The small group made me feel very comfortable. Each of us was of varying Spanish speaking abilities, but that did not seem to matter. Our conversation at first followed a “first date” format, where we all were simply getting to know one another. As the hour continued, though, conversation moved to deeper subjects such as grad school and favorite foods. The favorite food conversation was helpful for me, because I have a dance coming up and my friends and I wanted to go to a nice dinner before. The group had some great suggestions to offer me!

Overall, I immensely enjoyed the conversation I was privileged to be a part of. I was practicing my Spanish in a different setting than a classroom, which was so refreshing! I will be attending again!! If you are interested, check out Mi Pueblo’s Facebook page (the picture of Machu Picchu is the picture of Mi Pueblo’s page).

  1. Claire, me alegra que te haya gustado la experiencia en Mi pueblo. Se que Beth Chasco and Brandon Landers pensaron mucho en como hacer una cosa que realmente ayudara a los estudiantes.
    Me pregunto si no pudieramos organizar unos "intercambios" con los Latinas/os de aqui como parte de CBL. Ya pensaremos en eso...
