The Spanish Club will be hosting its second Conversation Table “Speed Spanglish” event on Nov. 7 at 5 p.m. in Comanche inside the Clark Student Center.

“The purpose of this event is for students to practice their Spanish, but we don’t want them to feel like they’re in a classroom,” Norma Castro, Spanish senior and Spanish Club president, said. “That’s why we add the Spanglish so they can use their English and don’t feel pressured to speak just Spanish.”

Earlier this semester, the number of people that attended the event was smaller than expected.

“We did one at the beginning of the semester, but we didn’t advertise it and it went by really fast,” Castro said. “I was hoping that more students would show, but there were about 10.”

The Spanish Club members said they hope to have a larger turnout than they had at the first Speed Spanglish.

“It was just like a test run to see how well it might turn out,” Tanner Flores, special education sophomore and Spanish Club social media officer said.

The Spanish Club created Speed Spanglish with the idea to provide students a more relaxed way to practice their Spanish speaking, but traditional learning of the language should not be ignored.

“It is a good way to practice, but we do want to encourage the learning of the Spanish language as it is,” Valencia Tamper, Spanish Club adviser and assistant professor of Spanish, said.

Activities included:

  • Raffle for $10 Whataburger gift card
  • Spanish Club t-shirt giveaways
  • Chicken tostadas and lemonade will be served
