Mi Pueblo is a student-run network of Spanish conversation groups. This means that U of I students volunteer their time to lead 1-hour sessions in Spanish at different times and places around campus every week.  Groups also get together throughout the semester for cultural events.

They have about 20 group leaders during the Fall and Spring semesters, and many of them run groups together (i.e. two or three leaders per group). They also have a summer network for U of I students who stay on campus June - August!

Please keep in mind that Mi Pueblo groups are NOT Spanish lessons. You must have some previous experience learning the language. If you would like to start learning Spanish, please register for classes through the UIUC Spanish Department. Once enrolled, Mi Pueblo would be happy to help you practice what you learn!

How does it work?

Group facilitators publish their meeting times and locations on the Calendar and  Twitter Feed.  All you have to do is let one of the group facilitators know that you are coming by sending an e-mail (all e-mails are listed in our Facilitator Directory) or reply to a Facebook post.

You can come to as many or few of the sessions as you like!

The groups are fluid, and each group leader has their own personality. Conversation topics vary from talking about the news and weekend plans, to playing games like Catchphrase or Pictionary. It depends on your interest, and group leaders are happy to direct conversation toward topics you want to talk about.

Is there a group for my level of Spanish?

There are novice, intermediate, and advanced level Spanish groups. You choose to go to the group that corresponds to your language level. To learn more about what each language level means, check out the Language Level Guidelines. 

How can I find out more?

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to tweet Mi Pueblo @MiPuebloUIUC, or send an email (details on left).
