You're FINISHED!!!!   Hooray!!June 6, 2016 



Huzzah!  Hooray!!  Callou!  Callay!   Oh frabjous day -- You're done with clase!!

Today, we watched EL OTRO LADO, a movie from PBS about what it might be like to immigrate in 2040.

And then, if we had time, we checked out MI VIDA LOCA, from the BBC.   I definitely recommend continuing to use "Mi Vida Loca" to keep up on your Spanish, and to learn things we didn't cover in class!!

Have a great summer, everyone!!

WOO HOOO for YOU!!!!   ¡Disfruten su verano!
