Do you want to practice your Spanish language skills and learn more about the Hispanic culture? Please join us at La Tertulia, a weekly informal Spanish conversation gathering with hot chocolate and cookies!

La Tertulia is held every Thursday from 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm on the first floor common room of Newport House. The primary purpose of this event is to encourage the use of the Spanish language and to promote the Hispanic culture among the Amherst community. Like the Spanish Table, La Tertulia is a great opportunity to speak Spanish in a relaxed setting and to meet students of all levels, Spanish House residents, Spanish language assistants, faculty, staff and community members. La Tertulia is free and open to anyone who wants to speak Spanish and have fun!

In addition to our traditional hot chocolate and cookies, on special occasions (for example, The Day of the Dead, Carnival, etc.), you can enjoy typical food, music and other traditions of the Spanish-speaking countries.

We hope to see you there!
