Creating A Virtual Spanish Language Learning Community

Spanish speaking children, teens, and adults use their public libraries for a variety of programs, classes, materials, and other services and resources. Many public library professionals who don’t speak Spanish lament their inability to serve these patrons as effectively as they would like. Many, though, have an admirable desire to learn. As you would guess, we don’t have time or money to travel to instructor-led language classes and, anyway, we are 16% through the 21st century! So, the Indiana State Library Spanish Language Learning Community is getting together in a virtual environment to learn and practice speaking in ways that relate to our library roles. Here is my first chapter in Aprendiendo con Bibliotecarios (Learning with Librarians) with details on the framework, development of the curriculum and assessment tool, and the web-based tools we are using for learning and conversation practice.
