Club HoLA - Hour of Latino Awareness - is a Spanish language and Latino culture club focused on helping teacher candidates explore language learning as they experience language learning themselves. Participants develop their "Spanish ears" and become familiar with Latino children’s literature.

Club HoLa meets for approximately one hour each week utilizing children’s books in Spanish as an introduction to Spanish language and Latino culture.  A native Spanish speaking teacher facilitates the gatherings using only Spanish. 

Many students also become part of a study abroad opportunity in Chile, which is organized each summer.

Participants use bilingual children’s literature to build language and cultural knowledge. To help teacher candidates begin building their teaching libraries, each participant leaves the final session with some of the books used.

No prior Spanish experience is necessary.
