The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo offers Castellano en Perú/Ola ka honua 2013, a language, culture, and service learning summer program lead by Sra. Luisa Oldmen. Program dates are from Saturday, June 15, to Saturday, July 13, 2013.
Through daily interactions with native speakers, students will be immersed in castellano—the Spanish spoken throughout Latin America. Participants will have opportunities to explore historical sites where the Inca and Pre-Inca cultures flourished. Students will also have opportunities to discover the rich Peruvian culture through music, literature, dance, and film. Participants will savor some of the most popular dishes of Perú’s world class cuisine, and under the tutelage of local chefs, they will learn to cook some of these dishes. Alongside their Peruvian peers, students will also participate in Service Learning projects that benefit local communities.
Scheduled excursion include city tours of colonial Lima; Cumbemayo, Porcón and the Ramson Room in Cajamarca; the Royal Tomb of the Lord of Sipan in Chiclayo; the Sacred Valley of Urubamba, the fortress of Saccayhuman, the Cathedral in Cusco, and explore Macchu Picchu, one of the seven wonders of the world. In classes and study sessions, participants and local students will compare experiences and these exchanges and reflections will contribute to a keener perception of a global community.
“Ola ka honua” is the Hawaiian expression which conveys the idea that the world is alive because we take care of it and in turn, it takes care of us. Therefore, everyone and everything is interconnected. Through service learning projects in local communities, our participants will share their language, culture and aloha.
