Liberal Fine Arts Places where diction counts Several students had the opportunity to participate in a fogram of Spanish language study in Latin America during ie summer. The program had been a part of the curriculum mr seven years, and this year the students were scheduled to avel to Torreon, Mexico,july 8 to Aug. 15. Studies were concentrated at La Universidad Autonoma el Noreste in Torreon because of the availability of .cilities, said T. Mark jones, assistant professor and pro- ram coordinator. jones said Pedro Rivas, head of the niversity, is a personal friend, and he chose the site because ftheir acquaintance. The trip provided students with the opportunity to learn panish in a cultural setting. Because of the unique learning tuation, students could not do all the bookwork required i the language class, but being in Mexico amply made up Jr less classwork,jones said. The time spent in Mexico was beneficial to the students ecause they were motivated to study in the cultural setting rid were more motivated for language study when they :turned to ACU, said jones. Along with the schoolwork the :udents made new friends, saw new places and found a new avist to learning, he said. The intent of the trip was not a missionary thrust, jones iid, but the students influenced the lives they came in con- ict with. While in Torreon the students befriended adults nd children in the Church, he said. q Students also stayed with Mexican families in Torreon, dost of whom were Catholic, said jones. This was a positive xperience for the students as well as for the families, he aid. The image the Mexican people have of Americans and ne Church of Christ improved because of the students, he aid.
