Lars, French Peer Tutor 
Meet Lars, one of our French peer tutors!

Hello! It is my first year at UIC and I am majoring in English. I have been studying French for five years and naturally I am a French peer tutor! I decided to study French in order to read literature from Francophone countries in the original version. When I first began studying French I had a really tough time and picked up some helpful study tips that made me get to where I am now: loving learning the language! I started at UIC in FR 104 and I am studying to be an English teacher, so I am very excited to be peer tutoring. Learning a language can be difficult but I am looking forward to helping make it a little easier for you.

 Street Food Latin America on Netflix
(2/4/2021) Samie recommends “Street Food: Latin America - Oaxaca” and also memelas…

"If you’re like me and consider yourself a foodie, then you should definitely check out “Street Food”! It’s an amazing series on Netflix that visits several different Latin American countries, including Argentina and Bolivia. I chose Oaxaca, Mexico because I have visited this city myself and I really enjoyed tasting all the different types of street food that can’t be found in the northern cities of Mexico. Also, watching this reminded me of my grandmother who is from Mexico!"

"I highly recommend Street Food: Latin America (Netflix) to everyone, because you get to see the variety of street foods that are offered in each country and you meet cooks that have built their business from the ground up. Each episode is simply amazing and it really makes you want to book some flights just to taste all the different foods. The next time you’re thinking about traveling to a new place and you’re not sure where to try, “Street Food: Latin America” just might inspire your next trip!"

German Music: Cro

What are some of Germany’s most popular artists? It might surprise you when I tell you that it’s actually a panda. Well...not an actual panda, but an artist who wears a panda mask and goes by the name of Cro. Cro creates music he calls “raop,” a mix of pop and rap music. Cro wears a mask as a means to protect his privacy and allow his listeners to focus on his music, rather than his appearance.
