How did you hear about the group?


Have you travelled in any Spanish speaking countries? Are you from one?

I am from Brazil. And have recently travelled to Peru and Bolivia.

What is your background speaking Spanish?

My grandmother was from Spain and always spoke in spanish with me. I always had a good ear understanding my spanish speaking friends and I really enjoy reading books in spanish. For the past year I have been a little self conscious about speaking spanish, I have the fear I will be mixing portuguese words. During two months traveling Bolivia and Peru I was forced to only speak spanish, lost a little of the self consciousness and was able to improve my speaking skills. Now that I am back in the U.S. and planning a trip to Spain in december, I'd like to keep practicing.


My name is Maria Neves, I am originally from Brazil and I have been living in Seattle for the past 4 years. I'd love to improve my spanish skills!
