Welcome to Half and Half! Created by Native-English speaker, Spanish language-lover Kate Dana to gather friends across the globe for English and Spanish practice: free of judgment and without classroom walls.
How it Works
Each week, participants are emailed a conversation topic several days before the live event. Once a week, we gather online to express ideas and inspiration while sharing and expanding our knowledge of English and Spanish. There are breakout rooms, tasks, and challenges to create a social, learning atmosphere. People join from places like California and Georgia in the United States, Barranquilla and Cartagena in Colombia, and Guadalajara in Mexico.
Why it’s Here
A former teacher of English as a Foreign Language, Kate Dana is in the final stages of earning a diploma in the Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages from Trinity College in London, England. With the onset of COVID-19 eliminating travel for exams and observations, Kate realized she needed to improve her skills in teaching groups online, pronto! Halfandhalf.us was launched with the best intentions, including learning with amazing friends from different parts of the world.
