The Latinx Technology & Community Center in Flint, Michigan (Latinx Flint) is expanding our community-based Spanish Immersion program to focus on the needs of working professionals in Flint. It can be very difficult for Spanish speakers to navigate our community, build relationships, and even receive essential services. Through this program, we are engaging professionals to increase awareness and the number of people that speak Spanish to make our community more welcoming while also providing a unique professional development opportunity!
As an immersive experience, our focus is cultural awareness and cultural education, which is blended into the language curriculum. With teachers from Puerto Rico, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Venezuela, the course offers a variety of accents, colloquial norms, and varying cultural experiences.
