What do people learn a language for, and introductions

Please be aware we moved the meeting date due to holidays! 

We picked a time and place, tell us what you think in the comments. Can you normally make it at this time?

We picked a topic that we think is super interesting, but let's also collect wishes for future topics.

Let's decide about future meetings:

* Time

* Frequency

* Format

* Location


I think we should start out with short informal meetings so we can get the most value without demanding a lot of preparation.

Topic to discuss:  What do people learn a language for?

* Work/family/fitting in/curiosity

* Which languages 

* What use; Shopping, casual, professional, work, technical, academic

* Who is paying

* Is it short term or long term

      Hi Cherie, that's a shame. Would weekend afternoons or mornings work better for you?

    I teach Hindi and Urdu usually in the evenings. So I would prefer early evenings or Saturdays.

    Hi Caterine, sounds like a good idea to postpone until 7 August. I will most likely be able to attend on that day also.

    It seems that most people are on holidays, so I'm thinking of moving the initial first meeting. Will you be able to attend if we move it to the 7th August?
