The language exchange program Conversaciones @ Your Libray sponsored by the Irving Public Library has just started its second season.
There is no charge and no registration required. Although offered by the City of Irving, it is open to all persons regardless of where they live.
Their web site is— http://catalog.cityofirving.org/rooms/portal/page/24387_ESL_Resources
This is a language “exchange” between English and Spanish, where people interested in learning English and Spanish meet. It requires each person to “share” their speaking skills equally between Spanish and English.
There are no teachers and there is no class. This is exactly like many meetup groups— a group of people who want to learn the other person’s language and meet people with similar interests.
The City of Irving has selected some bilingual high school students from the Irving ISD who will act as facilitators if necessary.
Here is the schedule—
Tuesdays, 6:30-7:30 p.m. West Branch Irving Library
Wednesdays, 6:30-7:30 p.m. East Branch Irving Library
Thursdays, 6:30-7:30 p.m. Central Library Irving Library
Saturdays, 1-2 p.m. Central Library Irving Library
Saturdays, 2-3 p.m. West Branch Irving Library
I have attended many of these groups. If you have any questions just ask. Like any group, you have to attend to see if it fits for you.
Hasta la próxima,
