Good Rules of Thumb (Tips)
1. Keep your RSVP up-to-date. If something changes and you are unable to make it please update your status. This allows others who are on the wait list to add to the event.
2. If you are going to be late please let the Organizer know by posting a message on the board. Some events require a reservation. If you are going to be more than 15 minutes late, we need to know so adjustments can be made.
3. If you are lost, please post a message or email the Organizer will contact you.
Brief History of Start The Conversation
This meet up began in Boston, Massachusetts in December 2012. When the Organizer moved to Thailand, a second group was opened up in Bangkok. This group stayed open from 2013-2015. Now that the Organizer is back in Massachusetts, the group has been moved from Boston to Northborough, where the group will continue.
Remember, when learning English, it is important to practice, make mistakes and have fun!
