Teach Me What Love Is: Argentinian Love Songs


Join Penn MFA candidates, Gayoung Lee and Catching on Thieves for Teach Me What Love Is –– a workshop dedicated to promoting intercultural understanding and unity.  Each session, the facilitators invite speakers whose first language is not English to share a love song that encapsulates their unique perception of love in their native language. Structured as a karaoke session, participants will focus on learning the chosen love song as a way of delving into diverse interpretations of love expressed in songs from various countries.

This upcoming iteration of Teach Me What Love Is will focus on learning a spanish love song from Argentina. Following the music, we will engage in a discussion about the concept of love, accompanied by delicious Argentinian snacks.
