Stella et Patrick

Broadening our horizons

When the pandemic began, Stella and Patrick saw their favourite activities—sports, theatre, travel, and many others—put on hold. After falling in love with Spain on their previous travels, they decided to learn Spanish as their “COVID project.” For them, it was a way to enrich their own lives, to broaden their horizons, and to keep their minds active! To date, Stella has completed eight language levels and Patrick is not far behind. 

Stella hopes to be perfectly fluent for their next trip to Spain and would like to volunteer with the Hispanophone community in Montreal. Patrick, for his part, hopes to be able to read 100 Years of Solitude in its original Spanish.

Learning a new language is an opportunity for personal and professional growth.

This allows us to broaden our horizons, strengthens connections, deepens our understanding of other cultures, and improves our memory.
