The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute (LACSI) is having its Summer 2017 Mesa de Conversación every Monday during the summer months (through Monday, August 7) from 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM. The facilitator will be long-time friend of LACSI, Mr. Roberto Fernandez. The Fall Semester 2017 Mesa will begin on Monday, August 14 and will be facilitated by Mr. Fernán Cerron Palomino. Fernán is a native Spanish speaker from Peru who has been providing Spanish instruction at the college level for over 10 years. He is currently pursuing his doctorate in Spanish at UGA.
The Mesa de Conversación is a free conversation hour open to all members of the UGA and Athens-area community interested in improving their Spanish conversation ability. There is no registration and no cost. Come and practice or learn Spanish while having fun and making new friends. No prior knowledge is required, just an interest in speaking the Spanish language!
The Mesa is located at LACSI, 290 South Hull Street. Limited, free visitor parking is available at the rear of LACSI in our W0-1 lot along the white picket fence. If those spaces are taken, you can park in any other space in W0-1 (unless designated UGA parking) by purchasing a $4 day-pass from us.
If you have questions about the Mesa, please contact LACSI’s Associate Director Paul Duncan.
