What Eddie D. is saying about this Meetup Group

I've been to every Tuesday meeting and intend to keep attending. We get together to focus on the oral reading of a Spanish work. We take turns, with each member reading a page, and after each page we review and discuss new vocabulary, any points of confusion, emergent symbols and themes, anything that might lead us to a deeper understanding. One aspect of the group I especially like is that no one dominates. We all participate equally, brought together by our love of Spanish and by the idea that we can learn from one another. Our organizer, Krystal, is really nice. She leads with a delicate touch and provides just enough gentle guidance to get us back to the next page if we spend a bit too much time off topic, or if it seems that we've exhausted the possibilities of the topic at hand. She's gone to the trouble of accomodating members who could not make it on Tuesdays by setting up an alternate meeting, and she's arranged for us to see a play based on the book. Que viva En Voz Alta!
