English Language Fellow Tylie Cramer held the second meeting of the IICANA Conversation Club, “Rambling on the Roof” in Cordoba, Argentina.   She was assisted by Brandon Janes, a fellow US citizen and IICANA teacher who served as the square dancing instructor while Tylie supported the activities.

The first half of the conversation club focused on English language conversation, while students were able to enjoy some hot chocolate to remedy the cold winter weather. During the second half of the meeting, attendees learned basic square dancing moves, allowing students to practice their conversational English. Students were able to learn about U.S. culture and idioms as well as share new intercultural experiences through square dancing.

This meeting was held in celebration of Memorial Day as a precursor to Brandon’s July event to celebrate both the Independence Days of both the United States and Argentina. The Independence Day celebration will also include square dancing and Argentina’s traditional dance, the Pericon.
