Wilkinson undergraduates discuss their involvement with the Shiwilu Project

Check out this video of Chapman undergraduate students discussing their involvement with the Shiwilu Project, specifically in the elaboration of a trilingual (Shiwilu-Spanish-English) dictionary.

As part of the SPAN 396 course (Fall 2010), taught by Dr. Pilar Valenzuela, Associate Professor of Department of Languages, students worked on Spanish and English versions and learned about linguistic diversity, differences in worldview and culture, and habitat. They also improved their knowledge of Spanish, which included learning vocabulary from the Spanish dialect spoken in the Peruvian Amazon.

The video was created by Paulina Bryant (Spanish and Film major).
