    Hi there! My name is Kara. I took a few Spanish classes in college and am not where I want to be. I have lost a lot of my Spanish skills. I am looking at taking a continuing education class in March and I would love to join you guys in learning the language. I would love to meet some people that are Spanish speakers learning or wanting to work on their English skills while helping to teach Spanish. Please let me know if anyone is interested and I look forward to the next meeting.

    I'll also express interest, even though the project is on hold. I had 8 years of Spanish education (awhile ago), but had almost zero chance to use it, especially in conversation, while living in Minnesota. I've been in Austin for a few months, and I'd love to dust it off.

    I'd really like to find a native speaker so I could work on my Spanish, and you can work on your English. I live in the Steiner Ranch (NW Austin) area, but I'm in the downtown, South, East, and Hyde Park areas regularly. Happy to travel to meet wherever, and have a pretty flexible schedule.

    Hola, a todos! I'm a native English speaker, with very basic Spanish (3 yrs middle school and occasional real-world use when I lived in Los Angeles) and French (1 year). I consider myself a beginner, who is better with written -- verbal is rusty, but sure to improve when interacting with speakers, again. I've just started a self-study regimen of Destinos and Platiquemos, to get the ball rolling.

    My transportation is limited, but I'm only blocks away from the main Central Market location, on N. Lamar, which would serve as a great meeting place. Right now, my schedule is extremely flexible. I would be happy to meet with speakers of any skill level, whether you want to work on Español o Inglés.
