Prepping for San Juan

Last Wednesday, In preparation for their up­coming trip to Puerto Rico at the end of March, the eighth grade class and Spanish teachers simulated the experience of ordering food and eating in a restaurant in San Juan. It was quite a tasty simulation – ­with delicious Caribbean food!­ Five Spanish-speaking guests – parents, neighbors, and faculty – generously took the time to come to our "restaurant" in Patagonia and engage in colloquial conversations in Spanish with the students and to share their knowledge of the culture and history of Puerto Rico.
