Welcome to my Rampages blogging site! My name is Lauren. I am a senior nursing student at Virginia Commonwealth University. This semester I had the exciting opportunity to enroll in LGCC 405; a brand new course that teaches Spanish specifically for healthcare providers. This blog will detail my experiences with one aspect of the class known as Teletandem. Teletandem sessions are online face to face interactions where I get to connect with native-speaking students learning English in Mexico. These sessions include both an English and a Spanish speaking component so we both get to practice the languages foreign to us and learn from each other. In addition to my reflections on these experiences, an activities page, a personal statement in English and in Spanish, and my final project will be found here as well. Enjoy!
