Have you considered travelling to Latin America or Spain to bird and worried that you would not have the Spanish vocabulary to engage a local guide? Or perhaps you are interested in engaging Latino birders in your part of town? Maybe you took Spanish way back in high school, or maybe you didn’t. Either way, this Spanish for Birders class is for you. Dr. Esmahan has lived in both Central America and Spain for over 15 years and before retiring, she was an educator. Birds are her passion and she is delighted to teach this Spanish for Birders introductory course which will include a very brief overview of Spanish pronunciation before diving into the words for bird anatomy, common phrases used in birding and the names of bird groups. Students will be able to download the slides in advance so that they may take notes in class.

The first session of this class was so well-received that we are bringing it back! Here are some of the reviews:
“Excellent experience! Great content and excellent instructor who clearly knows both birding and Spanish language. Would love to have additional classes.”
“This was one of the best classes I’ve ever taken with Travis Audubon, which is a true testament to Christy – usually I am not a fan of learning with Zoom. But it was fantastic! I appreciate that she sent the slides early so I could review them, and the class was paced perfectly. I really hope she holds it again – I would be happy to spread the word and encourage people to attend!”
“Class was great, teacher was great, and the Zoom format worked fine.”

Note: If you want to take the class but cannot attend the live session, you can register to receive a recording of the session that can be accessed for up to one week after the live class.
