3-day performance in Pedro Albizu Campos Plaza, Lower East Side, New York, in which I asked passers-by to help teach me Spanish. Volunteer teachers received Certificates of Appreciation from the student. Scroll down for video excerpt.
Thank You! to Sandy Rivera and Alex Sandra Rodriguez, seen teaching in this video, and to all who participated.
Presented as part of the Art in Odd Places Festival ‘Free’ October 2014
This and other Lengua, Libertad! recordings will form the basis of a forthcoming alternative online lesson for Spanish language learners.
