LCLC Spanish Tutor Samie Talks about Tutoring and Self-Confidence

 
 
 
   
 
Daisy, Spanish Tutor 
 
 
Meet Daisy, one of our Spanish peer tutors!

Hello! I am a first-generation college student in my last year here at UIC, studying Spanish with a concentration in linguistics. I am a transfer student and I’ve been a commuter for the past 2 years. Growing up I struggled learning English as my second language, so I know what it is like to learn a new language. One tip: if you’re just starting to learn a new language it’s always a great idea to watch movies or TV shows with Spanish subtitles. As a peer tutor I’ll share my language experience and help you with any challenges you might be facing with Spanish.

4-12-2021: Lars on laïcité

Most French citizens will tell you that laïcité is a backbone to not only French politics, but society as well– but what is laïcité? Laïcité is a type of secularism. The concept of secularism in America is very different from the laïcité that France knows. Laïcité has its roots in the Enlightenment period as it was a time that emphasized the importance of individual thinking and freedom as well as equality. It began with a push to keep religion, specifically the Catholic Church, out of state affairs after the French Revolution. However, laïcité was not signed into law until 1905. The law itself states that France “ensures freedom of conscience” but also “does not recognize, compensate, or subsidize any religion.

Because of this legislation, religion is completely separate from public spaces and public servants are to remain neutral on all matters involving religion.”
