What Jose L D. is saying about this Meetup Group

This is an interesting group of professional people who are practicing their Spanish language skills in a low intensity, fun, social setting rather than a classroom with drills and homework. Marcela is an excellent facilitator who helps people along and encourages everyone in the group to help each other out. We have discussions on many topics, and the members find that they are eager to offer their opinions and experiences, but they have to communicate them in Spanish... Whatever you skill or comfort level is, this is a great bunch of people and we invite everyone to come and give it a try. The more people participate, the more fun it will be for everyone.
