On Iberian Culture and Flamenco

By Analeigh Horton

I realized that the United States' Spanish language education system focuses mostly on Latin America.
I have degrees in Spanish and Latin American Studies, but realized when I moved to Spain that there was a lot of Iberian culture that I had never learned!

This project presentation at the Berlin Seminar 2017 reflects on my experience learning about Spain through taking flamenco classes and concludes with me giving a mini lesson to the audience.

Deseo que lo disfrute!
