Spanish converation once a week -
Posted January 29th, 2013 - 2:51 pm by from Buenos Aires, Argentina (Permalink)
I'm an English guy working in BA and in desperate need to improve my Spanish, I work in English and I can feel the Spanish slipping!
Just looking for someone who would be up for meeting up maybe once a week and have a chat over a coffee or drink, which of course I will buy!

Saludos

Tom

Hi Tom!

I'm an Argentinean language teacher and translator. If you'd like, we can go for a coffee or drink and practice your Spanish. In exchange, I could do with a little "real English" , because my ear is far too much used to the artificial audios I use with my students ;)
Cheers!

Hi man! I really need to improve my english. We can help each other. It d be good.
I hope seeing you to practise!

We could all get togheter with all the people who want to improve their Spanish, like an Spanish group. Would that be good for you?

Posted February 4th, 2013 - 4:00 am by from Buenos Aires, Argentina (Permalink)
Tom, we can make a conversation group. It's plenty of people here. If you want to meet up I can help you as well. I've been trying to get in contact with English people since I want to "change" my pronunciation into English and not the US way.

I just read what Natalia said so I'm not alone :)

Posted February 4th, 2013 - 9:01 am by from Buenos Aires, Argentina (Permalink)
Hi Natalia! I m agree. Just tell me what you´re planning to, how to obtain it.
See you!

Posted February 5th, 2013 - 3:21 pm by from Buenos Aires, Argentina (Permalink)
Hi Everyone!

Thanks for all your very generous replies!

I have a number of English friends out here who I'm sure would also be up for improving their Spanish.

Let me speak to them and then hopefully we organise some kind of event - maybe for next week.

Cheers

Tom

So what is the suggested date and time?? I believe that Eduardo has offered his place depending on the arranged time or else we could also use mine (Retiro/Recoleta) if that doesn´t work....or in Lacroze street. What do you all prefer doing?

Cheers,

Maggie

Posted February 6th, 2013 - 7:41 pm by from Buenos Aires, Argentina (Permalink)
I'm all good with both choices. Tom, what do you think?

We should set the day and time as well.

Eduardo, what are the possibilities?

Hey,

So myself all my friends are based in Palermo, some of them live in house on Thames, near to Plaza Serrano - it has a great Terrace and also if we do it there, they have no excuses not to join in!
We could potentially do it on Wednesday next week but I will have to check with them, as soon as I have confirmation I will post it on here.

Cheers

Tom

¡Bienvenida a Couchsurfing! :)
