Instead of our usual “Where are they Wednesdays” post, this week we remember Spanish BA alumnus James Cofield III, class of 2015. While a student at UNCW, James worked at Communities In Schools of Cape Fear, volunteered with New Hanover County Schools, was a member of the UNCW Track and Field team, and studied abroad in the Dominican Republic. He passed away in 2020. We have created a travel award in his memory so that current and future students have the ability to study abroad, just as James did.

Here's my NEW Video: The Spanish Alphabet. This video teaches the Spanish alphabet with the changes made by the Royal Spanish Academy in 2010. Please note that this version lists 27 letters in the Spanish alphabet, only one more than the English alphabet (that additional letter is Ñ). Before 2010, the Spanish alphabet had 29 letters because CH and LL were considered letters. After 2010, CH and LL are considered digraphs instead of letters. In this video students can practice saying the entire Spanish alphabet, reading each letter individually, and spelling words. Use the timestamps to practice the part that you'd like. Learning the alphabet will help students spell any word with confidence, and eventually, read anything in Spanish. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_DCuHki9Dk #senobluemel #spanish #alphabet #alfabeto #abecedario #teachers #education #students
