The Chicago Spanish Language Meetup

(Note:many people attend without RSVPing, we are usually 15-20 people every Saturday.)

Panera Bread, 501 S. State St (at E. Congress Pkwy) in Chicago. The closest "L" stations are Harrison on the red line, Jackson on the blue line, and Library on the pink, brown and purple lines; it is across the street from Harold Washington Library. There are affordable parking lots and also metered street parking in the area. We usually seat at a big table by the back area of the place, close to the back door.


Whereas there is no fee for participating, a $5 minimum purchase at the venue is recommended (let's keep the venue happy!)

This is the usual description of the event:


Nos reunimos para aprender, practicar y conversar en español. Mucha gente asiste a las reuniones para prepararse para viajar a España y a países latinoamericanos! Por favor haz RSVP = yes para asegurar que habrá suficientes personas para mantener nuestra reserva.
We meet to learn, practice, and converse in Spanish. A lot of people are attending an event to prepare for travelling to Spain and Latin American countries! Please make your RSVP = yes to assure that we have enough people to hold our reservation.

N.B. Intentaremos hablar en español, pero principiantes y hispanohablantes de todos los niveles son bienvenidos.
N.B. We will try to speak Spanish, but beginners and Spanish Speakers of all levels are welcome.

    The meetup was good at first, but I started to lose confidence in my ability to speak Spanish after people started telling me that I needed to improve pronunciation in Spanish.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
