IEP | Independencia de México y juego en español
Oct 23, 2020 (Fri.)
On September 18, 2020, an event titled “A Spanish Game Party (Independencia de México y juego en español)” was held to introduce Latin American culture. A total of 34 local Spanish major students as well as students from the Monterrey Institute of Technology in Mexico participated in this event. The first half of the event was a presentation by Mexican students about Mexico’s Independence Day which introduced the participants to the history of the country. Traditional cuisines, costumes, music, and a parade of the day were also introduced, and the introduction was concluded with the shout, ¡VIVA MÉXICO!
The second half of the event was the game, Loteria, which is similar to Bingo. This game is one of the traditional games in Mexico, which uses cards with pictures instead of numbers. Since cards were called out in Spanish, it was challenging for some students, but they all enjoyed the game after all. The prize was a special coupon giving the winner the privilege of asking as many questions as possible about Spanish language.
After the end of the event there was an interaction period on Remo, a virtual platform.
After this event, some students commented, “I haven’t been to school, but the event encouraged me to meet new people even virtually.” “I couldn’t speak Spanish very well, so I will work hard to improve my listening skills more.” The event has obviously motivated a lot of students in many ways.
