This group has sprung from our increasingly popular Thursday Spanish language exchange (with hints of Italian & Portuguese, depending on which members show up).
Every Thursday our group meets up at someone's house- (we try to rotate every week) at around 6:30/ 7pm. We encourage you to bring some wine/beer/snacks to share & we all have a great time socializing & having a conversation in a foreign language.
Please note most people attending speak Spanish at a conversational level, often they have spent time in a Spanish speaking country & are trying to keep it fresh in their minds, it's easy to forget a language if you don't use it!!!
However we have several absolute beginners who enjoy coming to listen, socialize & meet native Spanish speakers - who they can then organize to meet up with one on one for more intense language exchanges. It's also nice having beginners who enjoy helping the Latinos with their English :)
A lot of us have become close friends thanks to this meeting & we're always happy to welcome new members to our group.
This group is by no means limited to the Thursday meeting- Please feel free to create posts, weather you are looking for one on one exchanges, or want to organize a meet up yourself, the more active impute from you guys the more fun we'll have!
