Spanish Lunch Talks Return to the Pharmacy School

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

The Latino Association of Pharmacy Students (LAPS) held its first Spanish Lunch Talk of the quarter on Oct. 17. The event was open to all students, faculty and employees.

Lunch included delicious cheese, chicken and steak quesadillas.

Ani Childress and Uriel Aparicio, the LAPS Spanish Lunch Talk coordinators, both second-year pharmacy students, were eager to provide a friendly and learning environment for the students to practice speaking Spanish. The room was divided into two groups, beginners and advanced speakers.

Childress and Aparicio briefly introduced the topic of heartburn and helped pronounce words and phrases from the handout. After the introduction, everyone was given a chance to work in small groups, conversing in Spanish and using the words in the handout.

More LAPS Spanish Lunch Talks are planned. They are always a great occasion to learn and practice your language skills and enjoy a delicious lunch.
