Spanish Book Co-Authored by SWOSU's Pena`
August 25, 2009
Dr. Cynthia Pena`, who teaches Spanish courses in the SWOSU Department of Language & Literature on the Weatherford campus, has co-authored a book designed for third year Spanish majors and minors who need to develop and improve their oral skills in Spanish.
The book, Hablemos de teatro, published by Linus Publications, translated in English is Let's Talk About Theatre.
Pena` co-authored the book with her husband, Hector Garza, who teaches at West Texas A & M University.
The purpose of the book is twofold with students increasing their knowledge of vocabulary and communicative grammar structures by reading the plays and completing the exercises included in the book, and students prepare a script and act out one of the plays, which allows them to improve their pronunciation and understanding of topics, ideas, grammar and vocabulary involved in the plays.
The book includes plays from various Spanish American countries (Argentina, Mexico, Guatemala, Chile and Cuba).
Pena` teaches at SWOSU where a Spanish major was established two years. SWOSU also offers a minor in Spanish. She serves as coordinator of the Spanish program at SWOSU.
