Despite growing up speaking Spanish everyday in a Spanish-speaking household, I didn’t learn to read and write in Spanish until I was 13! When I finally started to learn… it was BAD. I wrote everything phonetically AND with a Cuban accent. Many of us who are dual language learners have this experience of not fixing in your native tongue. This week will speak with Dr. Aisha Z. Cort about her journey with Language and AfroLatinidad. Dr. Aisha Cort is the Afro-Cuban founder of Hey Dr.Cort!, a company focused on bringing language to life via the VIVA LA LENGUA online Spanish courses and cultural immersion language tours to Havana, Cuba, Oaxaca, Mexico and Barcelona, Spain. Additionally, Dr. Cort is a full-time lecturer of Spanish at Howard University in Washington, DC. Powered and distributed by Simplecast.
