I speak fluent french and the combination of my french and english has made it easy for me to pick up spanish very quickly. however I cannot speak, only read (more or less fluently) and understand. I need to be in a context where I force myself to speak.
I have not taken any formal classes, and I have never lived in a spanish country. but, bear with me, I do understand spanish very well, and am starting to speak it. I realize that this is a meetup where it's very important to be able to have a conversation and I don't mind remaining silent most of the time. I just really need to be exposed to spanish. I already started going to another group but it's not advanced enough for me. I don't know if you guys will let me come but I'd like to try.
