Guatemala Immersion: Integrating Academics, Service, Vocation and Faith
One of my favorite parts of this immersion trip was seeing students at all levels strive to communicate in Spanish. At the women’s social work site, I watched as Spanish minor Caitlin Skiba ‘19 translated the story of site-director Sheny for the group. Later that day, I hummed along as intermediate student Clare Martin ‘18 sang a well-known song “Océanos” in Spanish. Whether enrolled in Spanish I or an advanced literature class or growing up in a Spanish-speaking home in the US, students persisted in communicating and found joy in using their Spanish to help others.
