CCLS Houston had as a guest Charles E. Goslin, he is a retired CIA operations officer and experienced instructor in HUMINT tradecraft, counterintelligence and executive management in intelligence programs.
Charles has lived and worked abroad most of his life, in India, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and Latin America.
Through examples and situations from his life, Charles shared with us the importance of cultural awareness to both verbal, and non-verbal communications in language and relationships.
CCLS Houston takes classroom instruction outdoors, closer to nature and each other! Games and food are a wonderful way of nurturing fluency and ease in communicating in a different language. A bonus is meeting students from different CCLS classes and developing new friendships.
The rhythm of language fluency becomes smoother with practice, and there is no better way to physically engage in learning than letting our body move with the rhythmic beat of salsa music! CCLS Houston understands that practicing salsa dance is one way to inspire fluency in the Spanish communications with new partners.
Alebrijes. A magical vision of fantastical animals drawn from the fever dreams of the Mexican artist, Pedro Linares. CCLS Houston inspires students of the Spanish language by introducing concepts such as the Alebrijes, as a way to communicate learning through artistic inspiration.
