Intercambio de ingles y castellano - temas políticos, sociales y económicos
Posted October 8th, 2012 - 10:30 pm by from Sheffield, England (Permalink)
Hi, my name is Nick. I am a PhD student from the UK, and I am currently living in Buenos Aires in order to carry out research for my thesis. I am researching the relationship between immigrants and social/labour movements here in Buenos Aires.

I really want to improve my Spanish while I am here, and also meet new people. My Spanish is at an intermediate level, but I still need to improve. I would be really interested in talking about contemporary political, social, and economic issues in Spanish to improve my vocabulary, and I would like to help you in the same way with your English.

So we could talk for half the time in Spanish about issues in Argentina, and the other half in English about issues in Europe and the UK.

Let me know if you are interested!

Hola, me llamo Nick. Soy estudiante de Inglaterra, y estoy viviendo en Buenos Aires para hacer investigación para mi tesis doctoral. Estoy investigando la relación entre los inmigrantes y los movimientos sociales/laborales aquí en Buenos Aires.

A mi, me gustaría mejorar mi castellano durante mi tiempo en Argentina, y además conocer gente. Ahora, mi castellano es intermedio, pero sé que necesito mejorarlo. Estaría muy interesado en hablando sobre temas políticos, sociales y económicos para mejorar mi vocabulario, y quiero ayudarte con tu castellano de manera similar.

Entonces, mi sugerencia es que hablamos de la mitad del tiempo en castellano sobre temas de Argentina, y por la otra mitad en Ingles sobre temas de Europa y Inglaterra.

¡Avísame si vos estás interesado, y mil disculpas por todos los errores!

Hi Nick!

I'm interested in talk in English and of course help you with your Spanish. It could be great if we can talk about issues in our countries. These days I have exams, but if you want next week let me know and we can go to drink a coffe o something like that and have a afternoon or night of learning.

See you!

Hi nick, I'm inmigrant for academic purposes and I also study economics in Buenos Aires. Would you create a thesis group? where we talk about the issues of your thesis in both languages.

good luck

Hola Andres,

Sounds like a good idea - and other people could discuss their theses as well. I am new to CouchSurfing, so how would I go about doing that?

Hola Nick. Soy profesora de literatura/español.

También estoy interesada en hacer un intercambio: castellano por inglés; porque estoy por viajar a Londres a fines de año. Mi inglés es pre-intermedio. Te interesa?

Espero tu respuesta,
