Someone actually told me about the Hebrew language meet-up group and while I was looking around that site, on a whim, I decided to look to see if there was a Spanish meet-up site.
I am a native West Coaster, growing up in Los Angeles, and slowly moving north. I visited Acapulco 30 years ago with a girl friend's family, but I do not count that as traveling. My family is visiting Mexico for mid-winter break in February of 2011.
I had one year plus one quarter of college level Spanish at Portland State University. As a Biology major it was not required. I have long wanted to become proficient in Spanish.
Me llama David Gross. Hace mas que veinte anos tuve un ano de Espanol en mi universidad en Portland, Oregon. Tengo un poco de "rust." Me gustaria continuar hablar Espanol.
My first visit last night. People were friendly, gracious, and patient with my level of Spanish. My last Spanish class was 20 something years ago and my brain was full and over-stimulated after 2 hours of speaking Spanish.
