Women and Trans Only - Beyond Basic Bike Maintenance at Cycles for Change

* This class is part of the Women and Transgender Night at Cycles for Change, which offers a safe and welcoming space for self-identified women, trans, and non-gender-conforming people in the dude dominated world of bikes. No matter what your level of experience, we welcome you to come learn and teach and share (and just hang out). We have a regular open shop time every Tuesday from 5-8pm for you to use our space and tools. Female mechanics will be here to help you with any questions. *

The class is open to people with all levels of experience. Participants will be guided step by step to repair all bike systems, with technical explanations and hands-on practice. In full, folks attending this class will learn how to perform a tune-up/overhaul of a bicycle. Participants will work with the same bike through the class, in order to see the complexities and intricacies of one specific bicycle. Note: All class participants will fix up SHOP BIKES during this class. Bikes fixed up will be donated to one of Cycles for Change's many community programs!

Classes are on Tuesdays from 6-8:30pm. Each class will build on the knowledge from previous classes, but feel free to just drop in to one:

February 11 Introduction, flat fixing
February 18 Hubs
February 25 Brakes
March 4 Shifting

Social Interpreting

In a world full of population movements, the figure of the interpreter as a gatekeeper is getting more and more important. Working for languages is one of the best ways to recognize languages and cultures and to facilitate the communication between all the members in our communities. Humans are social beings so we need to communicate. Interpreting services should be used to respect human rights and to guarantee social integration. What is more important: what we say or how we say it? II you are interested in languages, rights and social justice, this is your class.

Beginning Spanish - Every Day Words - Winter Session

Learn Spanish!

This is a beginning-level course in Spanish which emphasizes listening and oral communication in a variety of topics at a basic level. It covers only that grammar and structure absolutely necessary for speaking. We will mainly focus on commonly used vocabulary with a little grammar, and basic phrases used in every day conversation.

Some of the topics we will cover: greetings!, the house, school, the market, and the city and more depending student's requests.

Each week we will introduce new vocabulary, however we will review the previous weeks lessons. It is recommended that you attend all 7 classes, however, I am not super duper strict! This is for your benefit! :)

We will use a multi-learning approach: Emphasis is on the development of basic listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills.
I teach in English and Spanish, however, the course is intended for students with no previous knowledge of the Spanish language.

like to keep things Interesting, Easy and Practical by using materials such as: visuals, audio, repeating, 1 on 1 conversation practice and songs! I will give a CD and prescribe work-book pages, providing you with a little something to help you practice at home!

I encourage everyone to be themselves and be comfortable. I am friendly and like to provide a space where you can feel at ease trying out something new! Be prepared to speak! Don't worry, I won't force you to speak in front of everyone if you're not comfortable, however, be willing to speak as a group and/or in 1 on 1 breakup sessions!

Upon completion, students should be able to comprehend and recite basic vocabulary and be able to introduce themselves.

:) Feel free to give me an email if you have any questions.

Shape note singing

Do you love to sing, or would you like to learn? Come and sing with the Twin Cities Sacred Harp/shape note singing community! I will teach an informal singing class from 5 p.m.-about 5:30 p.m.or so. Then stay and practice your new-found skill by singing with the group until 7:30. (You may leave earlier if you wish.)No experience necessary; only a love of singing is helpful. You don't need to have a choir or operatic voice to sing; just bring the voice you have! Some music-reading skill is helpful, but you can also learn as you go. If this class goes well and is popular, we'll continue it informally after the dates listed below.

Sacred Harp continues a more than 200-year-old tradition of singing hymns, anthems and gospel songs using shaped note heads to indicate position on the scale. Singers sit in a square by parts, and singing is full-throated, heartfelt and enthusiastic. Fellowship and community are important parts of this tradition.

No religious affiliation, nor any audition, is required to join the community.

For more information about shape note singing from the Sacred Harp, see http://www.fasola.org and http://www.mnfasola.org.

Details:

Tuesdays, 5-7:30
February 19, 26, March 5, 12, 19
We will start the class on an earlier date if enough sign up. In that case, class can be ongoing.
