Re: Workshop in Cross-Cultural Communication - Mark your calendar!

I can't tell whether this is actually going to be a survival Spanish intro (been there/done that) or whether this is really a cross-cultural presentation. Anybody that has taken Spanish knows about the cognates, but what about the cultural implications of things dropping themselves to me or the se/passive? That would be interesting. What are the implications of folks with limited educations talking almost wholly in the present... How long is the present anyway? Why do Mexicans dream with (for example) tigres, when we dream about them? Etc., etc.
