Spanglish does the Islands

Small change of plans: By popular demand, we'll have another summer picnic! Bring your own snacks, drinks and games and join us this Saturday on Ward's Island (eastern section of the Toronto Islands) for an afternoon of awesome fun with your Spanglish friends. We'll meet around 1pm at the dock on Ward's Island to select a picnic spot.

To reach us: Arrive at the Queen's Quay Ferry Docks (9 Queens Quay W @ Bay St, 509/6 bus or 10' walk from Union Station). Take the ferry towards WARD'S ISLAND (~ $7 return fare). We'll meet at the Island, just after the dock.

Please UPDATE YOUR RSVP and remember to bring a blanket and some sunscreen! See you Saturday!


 

----

At Spanglish, we practise conversation in Spanish and English in a relaxed and fun atmosphere, with occasional activities around learning the language. So whether you're a seasoned polyglot or just starting to speak out, you can always find a friend to practice with. And of course, earn extra karma points by offering to switch languages and practice your own!

And there is no cost to join us! We only ask you to support us having a meal or beverage at our venues - no outside food or drinks, please. This helps keep our meetup open and free, no strings attached. Isn't that how all new friendships should begin?

So, just come ready with your friendliness and enthusiasm! See you Saturday!

    I want to go to this, but....my Spanish is beyond elementary. I just don't know any. Except "si" and "cheecheron"(sp).....my son's mother and family are Colombian background and I want to catch up! But would it be better to go to a shorter event?

    Although I cannot make it to this Spanglish meetup, I look forward to others in the future. I studied Spanish, as well as French, as a linguistics major in high school and in university. I am a regular attendee of Spanish film nights at The Spanish Centre, near Bloor and Yonge Streets.
