Do you have an interest in learning and practicing a second language? Would you consider teaching someone your native language in exchange for learning a second language from that person? (For instance: I'll teach you Spanish for 1/2 hour, if you teach me a 1/2 hour of English.)
The Houston Language Partners is a group that anyone interested in finding a partner to practice language exchange can join. Language exchange means teaching your native language in exchange for learning a second language from someone who is a native speaker. You can do this by meeting up once a week with a language exchange partner one-to-one at a library or coffee shop. Houston is a great resource with a diverse set of languages, and there are so many people who want to learn. Let’s match up to practice and learn from each other.
We will meet socially as a group to have fun and hold speed-friending events to improve everyone's chances of finding a language partner. We will also hold events where we invite instructors to speak and give tips on how people can more effectively find partners, practice, teach and learn.
Don't worry about feeling embarrassed if you don't know much of the language you want to learn, whether you are a complete beginner or very advanced, you can always get better by making new friends and practicing with someone you like who knows the language. It takes practice with a partner to improve, and that's what this group is all about: finding partners who want to learn a second language from each other!
