“The Spanish House lets you feel comfortable practicing Spanish with other individuals with varying levels of Spanish, all willing to learn and converse for your personal enrichment. Tertulia also brings in a lot of elements of different Spanish cultures too, which is nice, for you get both language and culture in the house.”

—Luisa Feliz '05 resident, Spanish House 2004-2004
