This article presents a model of experience-based learning that can help students on the intermediate and advanced levels make the transition from language to literature courses in the context of real-life situations. The Santa Clara University Eastside Project provides a link between the university and the community. Students meet the practical needs of underserved Hispanic populations as they pursue the opportunity to practice their classroom language skills in an environment which nurtures a type of learning that cannot be provided within the traditional classroom.
