This Spanish Conversation course will take us through a cinematic journey through Spain and Latin America. Each film will address an important reality of the region and will give students incredible input to carry an engaging and thought provoking conversation in class, where lots of new vocabulary will be learnt, as well as multiple expressions to express opinions and carry on debates.
We have chosen top award winning films for this course that we are sure you will love. We expect the students to ideally watch the films before coming to class so that the conversation can be richer. All the films can be found for a very small cost on Amazon, iTunes, Netflix or YouTube.
This course is designed for Upper Intermediate and Pre-Advanced students (B2 and above).
The classes are on January 11, January 16, and January 18 and the screening schedule as following:
- January 11: Film "El Crimen del padre Amaro" (Carlos Carrera, Mexico): Power and Catholic church in Latin America.
- January 16: Film "El Clan" (Pedro Trapero, Argentina): Corruption and post-dictatorship in Argentina.
- January 18: Film "Volver" (Pedro Almodóvar, Spain): The role of women in Spain and their rural imaginario.

Miguel GarciaEver since I was a child in Murcia (Spain), I have always been passionate about languages, literature and culture. I studied English at the University of Murcia and the University of Leeds, and afterwards moved to the US to do a Master’s in Spanish literature and Teaching Modern Languages. I returned to London to study a PhD at Royal Holloway on the works of Federico García Lorca, and I currently do research on Spanish literature and cinema, especially on the films of Pedro Almodóvar and new contemporary Spanish filmmakers. I am also an avid writer of poetry and fiction in Spanish and English. Being a Spanish teacher allows me to share my heritage and passions with students while providing a fun and enriching experience.
