Practice a Language for Free + Meet People from Around the World (300+ RSVPs)

FREE MAJOR EVENT (expect 100+ attendees)

Location: Foodcourt of the Sheppard Center (lower level).

Socializing + language exchange till 6 pm + optional dinner afterwards (depending on the interest level of members by then). 

Welcome to join us anytime before 5 pm.


We will have two main areas: 

Area (A): One for socializing and language exchange in a casual setting

"Free-style" language exchange from 3:30-5:30 pm. Kind of like TorontoBabel's style, but we do it in a food court, in a way that fits our group, where it's totally free without alcohols. Free spring water will be provided.

Area (B): Another follows a relatively systematic and organized procedure to facilitate effective language exchange among people originally from all over the world.

You are free to switch between these two areas and among language groups. See one of the Co-hosts for any assistance you may need.



(0) Co-hosts and volunteers will set up a table with sign-up sheets and place signs on tables for various language areas as well as selecting an area as "Area (A)".

(1) When you arrive, please sign up and

  * (a) get a red sticker and write the native language (plus advanced languages) you can teach, and

  * (b) (optionally) get a blue sticker and write the language(s) you like to learn in the order of preference.

(2) (Round I) Go to the area assigned by a receptionist according to your birth birthday month if it is between 

  * (a) January and June, go to the area for the language you like to learn, or

  * (b) go to the area for the language you can teach. *

* Next time we'll reverse the order for (a) and (b).

(3) (Round II) Around 5 pm, everyone move to a different area

  * (a) if you were learning, go to the area for the language you can teach, or

  * (b) go to the area for the language you like to learn.

(4) (Optional) Go for dinner depending on the consensus of the group.

  * (a) Mirage on the 2nd floor where you can get 15% discount.

  * (b) Any restaurant the group likes (informally voted by attendees like to join the dinner by then)

    I really like the idea of the whole website (meetings and stuff) but actually I've never been to something like this before :D

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.
