Spanish 3 Students Welcome Mystery Guests

Sonia Brandon's Spanish 3 students had the opportunity to talk to una invitada misteriosa (mystery guest) recently. Thanks to the initiative of Happy World Foundation, one class was paired up with a volunteer from Argentina and the other from Costa Rica. The objective of the activity was for the students to connect on a Google Meet and ask the mystery guest a number of questions in Spanish to try to guess which Spanish-speaking country they were from. After successfully guessing, the volunteers talked briefly about life in their country and students could ask questions to learn more. One of the goals of the Happy World Foundation is to "help students preview their misconceptions about other cultures, dispel any stereotypes, and fight bigotry and prejudice with anti-bias education." The photos show happy connections being made.
