Embassy helps promote Spanish language
The Embassy of Spain officially launched the Spanish club “Que Pas” at the University of Namibia, last week. The club was launched by Carmen Diez, the Spanish ambassador to Namibia.
Que Pas is an initiative of Spanish students at the university and aims to promote the Spanish language while promoting the exchange of cultural experiences, solidarity, good learning relationships and good bilateral ties between Spain and Namibia.
Diez commended the students for their effort to promote the Spanish language and giving others the opportunity to not only learn the language, but Spanish culture as well.
She also expressed her satisfaction, with the initiative and promised the club continued support from the embassy. As proof of this support, the embassy donated a computer to the club.
The launch of the club was attended by Spanish students from UNAM and the Polytechnic of Namibia, as well as a big number of people from the Spanish community in Namibia.
The launch was followed by a presentation by Sarah Mwatilifange, president of Que Pas and the handover of the 2011 DELE Diplomas de Espanol como Lengua Extranjera (Official Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language) certificates by Diez.
The event was closed off with traditional dances from Spain and games which helped to promote language exchange as well as friendship between the Namibians and the Spaniards.
