- Spanish & Culture classes from 9 am -1 pm 

- Group Weekly Reflection Meeetings from 6:15 pm to 7:15 pm

This Program has the potential to deeply impact how students view themselves. In order to achieve this transformative change. Reflection helps students critically process what they experiencing, can help encourage identity development in relation to Argentina context, provides an important outlet when students encounter challenging situations and helps the blending of academic content with personal experience.

 

“We do not learn from experience,

                     we learn from reflection on experience.” John Dewey

 

This is a way of conceptualizing and structuring a reflection session;

its three steps Model: “The What?”, “So What?, Now What?”

For Argentines, a picada is a reason to meet. We have them in the garden, in the living room or a bar for something more substantial, with friends, talking and munching on a delicious snack.

 

But for anyone who has not had a picada in Argentina, there are three things to know. 1) It must not be rushed. 2) On the table there will be all kinds of meats and cheeses 3) Wine is very important, red Malbec, white Torrontés or Bonarda.
