Spanish Hour

Spanish Hour is open to all levels and takes place at El Centro every Tuesday from 11 am-noon. While it's a casual meet-up to converse, we always have someone available to support you with your questions about words, grammar, or phrases. You can also come if you just want to listen! We welcome all students, staff, faculty, and members of the Durango community.
