From the Tulane SLA Newsletter: Learning Spanish through the culinary traditions of Latin America

March 16th, 2017

“On February 23rd, the Introductory Spanish II class, SPAN 1020, made a trip to the Ideal Market, a Latin American food market located in Mid City, New Orleans. Tulane students who participated in this Department of Spanish and Portuguese course have studied about food and nutrition in recent weeks. A visit to the Ideal Market was an excellent opportunity to give students a practical application for what they have learned in the classroom.
