Bilingual Encounters

The Spanish for Heritage Learners Program proudly promotes our language and culture in the university community through six undergraduate courses and two bilingual encounters: Club Bilingüe and Club Latino de Arizona.

The Club Bilingüe is an informal meeting that is held every Wednesday from 6:00-7:00 P.M. at the Guerrero Center. Students are encouraged to attend in order to interact with other peers in the program as well as practice Spanish outside of the classroom. An instructor from the program is present at each weekly meeting.

Club Latino de Arizona (U of A official club) began in the fall of 2006 as an organization affiliated with the Spanish for Heritage Learners Program. It is made up of current and former students from the program. This club has several objectives, some of which include: maintaining and promoting Spanish in the community, performing volunteer service, organizing and participating in Hispanic cultural events, learning and honoring each member’s cultural heritage. This group meets on every 2nd Wednesday at 6:00 at César Chávez #211. Additional information about the Club Latino de Arizona can be found in the club’s social media pages: Facebook Twitter: @clublatino_az
