In the absence of cultural gatherings, celebrations and events during the pandemic, CERCLL has asked friends and colleagues to share traditions that are important in their culture in our Culture and Language Exchange (CLÉ). These short videos are shared on CERCLL’s social networking websites to showcase the richness of culture present in our community. Videos are in the original language (without subtitles) in an effort to create an immersive language experience. Currently videos focus on language and culture in Chinese, Filipino, French, German, Italian, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. Language educators are invited to use them as part of a class lesson or sample assignment for their students in that language class.
CLÉ videos will be shared bi-weekly on Fridays (and occasionally on other days if the videos focus on particular holidays)–you will see them when they post if you follow us on Facebook, and on Twitter as @CERCLL and Instagram as @cercllua.
If you would like to contribute to the CLÉ series and participate with a video, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
