Spanish Conversation Center

The Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures invites you to visit our Spanish Conversation Center to practice your spoken Spanish. The Spanish Conversation Center is staffed by graduate students in the Master of Arts in Spanish Program. The Center is free and open to everyone, including community members. You do not have to be enrolled in a Spanish course at UNCW to take advantage of this opportunity. The schedule for Summer 2014 is available here.

Face-to-Face Conversation Sessions

The Spanish Conversation Center is located in 124 Leutze Hall. During the summer, sessions are not arranged by Spanish level - you can attend any session that fits your schedule. Our sessions have a maximum capacity of five attendees, and we now offer pre-registration for face-to-face sessions. Follow these steps to register for a face-to-face session:

  1. Go to the registration site.
  2. Select a session that is convenient for your schedule and click on 'Sign Up'.
  3. Create a Sign Up Genius account if you do not already have one.
  4. Complete the sign up process.
  5. If you need to cancel or change your registration, simply return to registration site, log in, and make the changes needed following the prompts provided.

*If you register but do not create an account, you will not be able to cancel or change your registration. You will need to email the SCC coordinator at boomershinea@uncw.edu and request the changes.

You will sign in and sign out electronically. You can do so by swiping your UNCW ID card or typing in either your UNCW username or ID number. Guests sign in electronically using their personal email address.

Online Conversation Sessions

For online sessions, we ask that you register in advance for each online session you wish to attend and that you make sure your microphone and webcam are working before the session begins. If you register but do not attend two sessions, you will be blocked from participating in online sessions for the remainder of the semester. Follow these steps to register for an online session:

  1. Go to the WebEx site.
  2. Search for 'Spanish Conversation Center' in the search field in the top left of the page.
  3. Select a session that is convenient for your schedule and click on 'Register'.
  4. Enter the requested information.
  5. Log in at the time and date of your scheduled session by using the link you receive in the registration email. Enjoy!

Paula

Hola  a todos! Me llamo Paula Crites y soy de Madrid (España).  Cuando tenía 14 años me mudé a Granada (España). Este será mi segundo semestre en el SCC. La experiencia ha sido muy favorable y estoy encantada de poder repetirla. Las sesiones suelen ser muy divertidas y creo que es la mejor manera para practicar español y aprender sobre la cultura. Espero poder conversar con todos vosotros en el Centro de Conversación. ¡Un saludo!
