Language Exchange Sunday + Picnic!

  • May 11, 2014 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Looks like a nice Sunday coming up so let's have a Language Exchange Central Park Picnic event! PLEASE READ all of description below so your informed!

We will meet BY THE BENCH at park entrance with FLAGS or a MEETUP SIGN from 3:50-4:10 PM.

If you would like to attend, you must bring either:

a) FOOD (would be great if relevant to your language but not necessary)!
b) DRINK with plenty of disposable cups (2 large bottles at least)!
c) SUPPLIES, paper plates, napkins, forks (& knives, spoons) trash bags!

If you do not bring food you must contribute $5. Also, please come on time, we will not provide a phone number.

You can either make or buy something but whatever you bring should be able to be shared with your language group. GUYS especially, you should spend at least $5 on something, it's totally not enough to just bring a bottle of water or a roll of napkins, at least follow the "abc" choice list above! Please be considerate to other members.

There may be no chairs, only sometimes available, so we will be sitting on the grass. Bring a sheet to sit on & proper attire, forecast says 75! We will split off into groups of 25 and spread out into conversational language practice groups of Spanish, English, French, Portuguese, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Hebrew, German, Arabic & Russian.

You will have option to meet us at a specific corner between 3:50 and 4:10 (20 minutes) or be late and try to follow a map we will send of our location. If you're not familiar with Central Park, please be on time, and meet us at corner, otherwise it will be difficult to find us!

IMPORTANT
1. Please CHECK-IN with us once inside the park for a name tag!

2. We are asking all members to spend at least 1/4 of their time HELPING out in their native language! That way we all help each other, you meet people interested in your culture and you make more friends!

3. Please CLEAN UP after yourselves! (coffee cups, papers, etc) Members who don't will be removed from our group!

4. Fee will be charged to cover the group costs, 4-5pm $1.00, 5-7pm $2.00.

5. If you bring nothing you must pay $5 to attend.

6. If you can't come to the event please update your RSVP status before it closes, so other members have the opportunity to come. (members that RSVP yes and don't show 3 times will be removed from the group)

    Maybe late notice for the group to plan something around the Dance Parade. I am going to be there if someone wants to meet me there, send me a private message. Have to see the Bolivian Tinkus and Caporales dancers. They are just eye popping!

    The things that I intended to do today, I got done. Thanks to everyone at the Spanish group for exchanging many things, my friend for being a good sport while learning to play a new sport, and the new people I met today.

    WOW, 76 degrees beautiful weather! I sent out an email to all members that RSVP'd with details and a MAP of our location for this event, in case you arrive late. You can take either the C or 1 train. Anyone that RSVP's after will need to be there on time between 3:50-4:10 otherwise it will be difficult to find us.
