Please read at least as far as the fifth line.
In this message:
-CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
-Meeting dates and venues.
I organise 12 groups, and occasionally I must set more than one meeting on the same day. I usually put the start times about an hour apart to give myself the opportunity to participate in both meetings. Note that our meetings usually last about one and a half hours to two hours, although some last much longer. This means that the meetings overlap.
Let me give an example. Let us suppose that a Spanish meeting starts at 6:30pm, and a French meeting starts at 7:30pm. Even though French speakers will start to arrive at 7:30pm, the Spanish meeting will probably continue to 8:00 or 8:30.
The point I am making is this. The meeting is NOT over when the next meeting starts. Please do NOT leave when the French speakers (...or German or Japanese speakers) arrive. Please stay and continue to speak Spanish.
Most of us know this already. I'm just mentioning this for the sake of a few, to avoid potential confusion.
