Language Peer Mentors and Student Liaisons

The Spanish, Latina/o, and Latin American Studies Department has a number of language resources helpful to students studying Spanish. This includes the Spanish Language Floor Living-Learning Community, as well as weekly conversations with peer language assistants in Spanish classes. The weekly Language Table offers further oppportunities to practice speaking spanish through lively dinner conversations. The Q&A Sessions with the language mentor offer additional support around the concepts of learning a language.

Qualified students may apply for a language assistant position through the Language Assistant Program by contacting Morena Svaldi. Students may also apply to live on the Spanish Floor by contacting Residential Life.

¡Hola a todos! My name is Francesca and I am a Sophomore at Mount Holyoke. I’m from Jersey City, New Jersey, and I intend to double major in International Relations and Environmental studies. When I have time off from my studies and work, I enjoy taking long walks, listening to music, shopping, and treating myself to a good adventure/action movie! I have a very good understanding of Spanish so feel free to come to the Q&A hours with any questions or issues! Last but not least, if you catch me strolling on Campus, I’d love to stop for a quick chat or to help out with any further questions from Q&A sessions. ¡Nos vemos!
