In many places around the Latin-American zone, people have the privilege to share more time with their relatives during weekdays. This means that they have enough time to comeback from their job places to have a lunch, stay there and take a nap. This routine makes the family share experiences during the day or talk about whatever they want. When we talk about ‘Sobremesa’, we talk about a brief period of time where people after have a lunch and discuss about life or/and experiences. This time may be from 20 minutes to 1 hour, according the worker time allowed to be there In order to explore the benefits of expand the engaging of the Latino/Hispanic culture. I propose making a conversational time called Sobremesa, in which all participants SHOULD speak in Spanish. If the participant has not the appropriate Spanish level to make it, a person (volunteer) in the table will help him in order to understand what the conversation is about.
