Hola! I've been trying to learn Spanish on my own off and on for a couple of years but have had a hard time of it. I think that actively learning with others will be much more effective.

From 0 to 10 what level of Spanish to you speak? 0 being none 10 native speaker.

Probably a .5 to 1

What Catherine is saying about this Meetup Group

The group was more advanced than expected so to be honest I was extremely nervous at first, and afraid of people thinking I am stupid. Then I reminded myself that this what Spanish-speaking people go through everyday in America and I needed to just work through my anxieties and get over it! Then everyone was very nice and patient, especially the gentlemen I was sitting beside. Gracias Amigos! It's a great group and just listening to actual conversations is a big help, much more than the recordings I've been using. I recommend this group to any who have interest in learning Spanish, even if you don't know one word. Don't let fear or anxiety keep you away, this a group of good people!

    Welcome to The American Explorer Catherine! I created this group to find flat water paddlers who also love primitive camping, hiking, birding and wildlife photography. There may be places where cell phones wont work and immediate medical care will not be readily available. We plan to do a lot of in state and out of state traveling for weekend trips as well as 3 to 7 day trips. If you do not own a canoe or kayak, rentals will be available on some trips. Thanks for joining!
