Do you speak Spanish? Neither of us here do (at least not very well). I took a few courses in high school and an upper-level course my freshman year in college, but without daily or even just weekly practice, all that memorization has faded. And now we’re working on magazines for two Spanish classes at Santa Clara University.
The students definitely know their foreign language–it shows in the multiple-page interviews they conducted and in their travel essays and movie reviews. Despite the language barrier, the articles are looking appropriate for each category: tasty pages of Spanish recipes, funky layouts for the advertisements, and the historical interviews have a classy look.
Deadlines for the magazine and a couple of lengthy books is sneaking ever-closer. Once the rush has passed, we’ll post some ideas we’ve brainstormed, as well as some shots of the bonita español magazine.
