Play among the words of Gabriela Mistral’s poetic flow, be enchanted by Isabel Allende’s fiction, involve yourself in Valeria Luiselli’s contemporary reflections. Over three 90 minutes sessions, we’ll read and analyse texts, experiment with vocabulary and, of course, speak Spanish! Don't worry about buying hundreds of books – we’ll provide you with original texts (and translations into English) when you enrol.

Here are the authors and texts to be read and discussed:

  • Gabriela Mistral and her poem “Besos”
  • Isabel Allende and her short story “Dos palabras” from Los cuentos de Eva Luna
  • Valeria Luiselli's essay “Frontera” from Los niños perdidos
