5 reasons to participate in PBO’s workshops!

Posted on May 5, 2019 · Posted in Pura Buena Onda Blog

Hola de nuevo, chicos y chicas:

In this new blog entry, I’ll give you 5 reasons to participate in PBO’s workshops. Have you ever been to one? Maybe not? Let’s see why you should come:

1 – Have you ever noticed that it takes a bit of time to get into the rhythm of speaking Spanish when you get to class? Some students say that halfway through class they finally get in their groove. Well, PBO Workshops are longer than a regular class. Allowing yourself to immerse yourself in the Spanish language for a longer period of time, is always beneficial.

2 – PBO’s mission has always been to create a fun, relaxed, un-intimidating environment in which to become comfortable speaking Spanish. And I believe that we do that exceptionally well; but sometimes students want to learn more about a particular subject. Workshops are more academic than an event or a class. If you’ve ever been curious about one particular subject, and want to explore it in depth, a workshop is the perfect place to do so.

3 – Another of the 5 reasons to participate in PBO’s workshops is that whatever the topic, you will learn a lot of new vocabulary and/or grammar. And who doesn’t want to learn more vocab & grammar??

4 – We usually have two kinds of workshops. We have the ones related to culture and the Hispanic world, and the ones related to grammar. Those two things are covered in our regular classes, but not in depth. Whatever your interests, we’ve got a workshop for you!

5 – They say it takes 10,000 hours of doing something to become an expert. Adding in a few workshops (and possibly immersion weekends) per year will help you reach expert level at a faster pace, while learning about more about one particular subject, and meeting new friends with a shared interest.

Those are my 5 reasons to participate in PBO’s workshops. If you have attended a PBO workshop before, let everybody know about your experience! You can always leave a comment in the comment section on Facebook.

Have an amazing week!
