What We Do
Spanish Language Learning
We facilitate Spanish language learning in a practical, real world setting.
We immerse ourselves in the Latinx culture by supporting local celebrations and sponsoring cultural initiatives.
We work to create a welcoming community that supports all.
To broaden understanding and acceptance of diverse community groups by expanding one's knowledge of the Spanish language and culture.
Emporia Spanish Speakers was founded in October 2017 in order to help facilitate Spanish language learning. Since then, it has evolved into so much more! Yes, our primary focus is still to expand our Spanish language skills.
However, immersing ourselves in the Latinx culture of Emporia and the surrounding area, whether it be supporting celebrations like Cinco de Mayo and Día de Los Muertos, sponsoring cultural art projects and performances, or coming together over food, has been an instrumental part of our group. We also work with multiple local agencies to create a welcoming community that supports language inclusion and supports diverse groups.
