Abdallah Spanish Tutor 
 
 
Meet Abdallah, one of our Spanish tutors!

¡Hola! I’m an Architecture major transfer student. I am from Brooklyn, New York, born and raised, but I am stuck in Atlanta, Georgia with family due to the pandemic. I started with Spanish 102 at UIC, but my interest in Spanish derived from learning about my family lineage. My father was born and lived some years in Panama City, Panamá, but if you didn’t know him, you’d never suspect him to be of Latino descent. My grandparents kept Spanish to a minimum in their household, so their children never picked it up. However, as a proud Panamanian learning of my family and culture, my siblings and I decided to pick up where my grandparents left off, and part of this mission is learning the language of the people to connect with more individuals/cultures and broaden our experience as individuals and as a family. I decided to tutor because I recognize teaching someone else helps the tutee and tutor. I look forward to working with Spanish students!

2-22-2021: Nate reviews a German film, Der Ölprinz (1965)

"Advanced German speakers looking for a real classic film, 'Ein Film mit Herz und Humor' and quite a bit of action–here’s one for you! Der Ölprinz (Germany, 1965, directed by German director H. Philipp) is a film full of heart, humor, and its fair share of cowboy action, as the critics say."

Cornelius Nyungura

Cornelius Nyungura, known as Corneille, is a Canadian singer and songwriter. Although he was born in West Germany, he grew up in the Republic of Rwanda in Africa, where his parents are from, this is why he speaks French because Rwanda has French as one of its languages. His life changed during the Rwandan Genocide because he witnessed his family be murdered in front of him. He decided to move to Canada to pursue studies in communication at Concordia University. Some of my favorite songs of Corneille: “Avec Classe”, “Parcequ’on vient de loin”, “Seul au monde”, “Le bon Dieu est une femme”, “Des pères, des hommes et des frères".
