Students Study Spanish Abroad This Summer

Dr. Victor M. Prieto, chair of the modern languages and linguistics department, spent five weeks this summer in Spain with eight NGU students for a Spanish study abroad program. Jessica Ward, Hannah Giordano, Andrew Schaich, Angelina Branche, Sara Williams, Micaela Norberto, Luis Cruz, and Emily Noel all took a class about Spain in Madrid.

The team was able to visit downtown Madrid, Toledo [the Old Spain “City of the 3 Religions”], Alcala de Henares [birthplace of Cervantes], and Malaga [The Andalucia/Mediterranean city, birth place of Picasso]. Different team members were able to visit other countries/cities such as: Portugal, France, Italy, Barcelona, Mallorca, and Morocco.

Apart from taking a three credit NGU Spanish class, the team joined the Emanuel Church [Iglesia Emanuel] in Torrejon de Ardoz and its pastor, Lucas Colmenares, in different ministry opportunities.

Some team members helped with basketball coaching; some joined an English as a Second Language school; some assisted an organization to help people with different types of disabilities; some connected with a top-level private school and technical college; and others helped with a private company to support children with learning disabilities. They also helped with preaching and worship/music at the church and had the opportunity to participate in an “evangelistic evening” in the center of Torrejon de Ardoz.

In addition, the team stayed with local families in town and formed strong friendships and more personal opportunities for ministry.
