Episode 5 - Part 2 Of Bilingualism Con El Profesor Guillermo Ríos
It's Teacher Appreciation Week and Las Manas celebrate it by bringing their cousin, a Spanish language lecturer at the University of Texas at Arlington, on the podcast! This is a knowledge dropping crash course on language and history that you absolutely cannot miss! Las Manas and 'El Profe' Guillermo talk about colonization, La Malinche, Hernán Cortés and everything in between. Tune in to learn why Latin Americans speak Spanish so differently (hint: our ancestors might have something to do with why Mexicans speak Spanish as if we are singing)! And get this...did you know that Spanish is not a language, it's a dialect? El Profe also takes us back to his experience teaching in Spain and how his Spanish sounded "ancient" to the Spaniards. If you want to learn to speak Spanish or improve your Spanish, Guillermo Ríos teaches basic and conversational Spanish online. You can email him at email@example.com. For those in Texas, you can enroll in any of his classes under the Modern Languages Department at the University of Texas at Arlington or at Dallas County Community College.Read more »
