This cablecast collaboration of DW.de content designed to support language literacy in either English or Spanish is possible through a #GoodEnough2Share arrangement with the Spanish Community of Wallingford (SCOW). Content that is not created locally qualifies to be cablecast when represented locally. Here are the four Spanish content programs currently shown:
Every week there is new midday In2Languages content. Check out the programs playing each week in English here: In Good Shape, Global 3000, Tomorrow Today and Focus on Europe as well as other programs we redistribute produced by DW: Conflict Zone, Euromaxx, SHIFT and Corona Virus Global updates.
Collaboration: Promotion & Underwriting
A collaborative language literacy, #In2Languages #En2idiomas, partners the missions of the Spanish Community of Wallingford with WPAA-TV to promote ‘learning by viewing’ identical content in both English and Spanish. #In2Languages #En2Idiomas news magazine-style stories about the world, technology, health, and arts are produced by Deutsche Welle. Promotion assistance is provided by the Spanish Community of Wallingford (SCOW), Wallingford Adult Education and Literacy Volunteers, and Language teachers. Spanish Language students are encouraged to watch in the summer or Saturdays to help retain language skills. English language learners are encouraged to watch on their lunch break. It is also a means of learning Spanish.
ABOUT | Since Oct 2012
This language literacy initiative began in Oct 2012 with two world news programs. Now four news programs are scheduled in tandem, on weekdays midday.
From 2012-14 content was scheduled to play concurrently with high traffic times at SCOW in order for community members might watch on the TV in SCOW’s lobby/wait area.
More than a decade old, #In2Languages| #en2idiomas remains available as community TV thanks to generous community donors. Special thanks to Michael and Zorayda Cocchi whose annual donation to WPAA-TV seeds the community donations. $900 is needed to cover the Spanish content cost. The English versions of the same stories remain available via a generous content grant from Deutsche Welle. Over the years wpaatv secured grants to cover the costs of all content but now the existence of the initiative is reliant on community support. Friends of SCOW and WPAA-TV donate to WPAA-TV via the community-wide GreatGive Fundraiser in May. May is when the DW contract renews.
