Introduction

I want to speak Spanish more often and meet people with an interest in the language. Took plenty of grammar in school. I speak the language well, but concerned I'll get rusty.

¿Que te gustaría hacer para mejorar tu español? (What would you like to do improve your Spanish for the better?)

I want to think of the right word in Spanish quickly instead of fumbling for the word or settling for Spanglish.

¿Cuales son algunas de tus lugares favoritos para comer comida Hispana? (What are some of your favorite Hispanic restaurants?)

Cafe Piquet, Mi Pueblito.

¿De donde eres? ¿De donde es tu familia? (Where are you from? Where is your family from?)

Born in Cuba, raised in San Juan PR. Have lived in Mexico and Spain.

¿Quiénes son tus celebridades favoritos de origen hispano? (What are your favorite celebrities of Hispanic origen? actor, musician, singer, comedian, etc.

Writers: Carlos Eire (Waiting for Snow in Havana), F. Bauer (el puente de Alcantara). Singers: Willie Chirino.

What Bob G. is saying about this Meetup Group

This group is easy going, few seem to be shy and those that needed help with Spanish got it. There is a good ratio of solid Spanish speakers to those who are still improving their language skills. Truly a great opportunity to speak Spanish without feeling embarrased or self-concious.

    Houston Area Trails & More

    Hey Bob, The meet-up I was talking about was the hike the group takes on the Lone Star Trails. I think the next one is Saturday, Oct. 27 or some similar date. It's title on here will say "HATS Lone Star trail, etc." Let me know if you can't find it. Thanks!

    Hello Bob, Bella will not be able to attend any event this weekend. She is in the hospital recuperating from a not so serious issue yet she needs someone to take over this event. I just spoke to Luis Cardoso, who broke the news. I see you as event host so please know you will lead this one! Have fun!
