Connecting Through Cultural Diversity Awareness

I haven’t been posting on Over The Andes as often as I normally do because I’ve been working on some exciting projects.  One of those projects was a guest post for DaliTalks.  I featured Dali’s anti-bullying and diversity awareness blog a while ago, you can check out that post here.

Dali and I ‘met’ while I was doing some research and market validation for an online course I’m creating (my other project) and we’ve kept in touch through our mutual respect for each other’s work.  She very kindly extended an invitation for me to do a guest post on DaliTalks and I’d like to share that post with you today.

The post focuses on projects I’ll be doing with my own boys, over the summer vacation, to help them explore the cultural diversity of Latin America.  I highlight various Latin American culture facts and provide tips on what you can do for yourself, or with your family, to learn more about the region.

Please do head over to Dali’s site to read more about exploring the cultural diversity of Latin America.

I’ll also be joining her DaliTalks show live on Facebook next Friday at 6:00 p.m. PST.  More details on that to come!

 

Have a great week!

  1. Hey, there! I’ve been wondering what you’ve been up to. 😉

    I really enjoyed your guest post. This part in particular made me smile, because I could so relate to it: “Where I’m calm and eloquent in a classroom with my adult students, in my own kitchen, with my son as my audience, I could barely find the right words.” I’ve had moments where I’ve had to explain something to my dad and I’m just like “plaaaah…The words are in my head, but they sure aren’t coming out of my mouth.” 😆

    Your summer plan for you and your son sounds awesome! It should be interesting to see what countries/interesting facts he latches onto and wants to know more about.

    1. Haha. Amazing how you can know what you want to say but sometimes the words don’t move from the brain to the mouth so easily.

      Yes. I’m excited to see what he ends up interested in. Right now his brain is full of the hockey camp he’s doing for one week so we’ll start our project over the weekend.
