The Bristol Spanish language Group was founded by Emily, on returning to the UK in 2008 after 4 years in Spain. She was keen to keep up her language skills and meet like-minded people, and when she didn't manage to find a group to join, she started this one! Initially there were three groups, elementary, intermediate and advanced, but as the group expanded she was getting more and more enquiries from beginners hoping to join.
I have recently taken over as organiser of this Meet Up group from Emily. I have met up with Emily and discussed how she ran things and some ideas for the future.
I would like all your opinions as to where you would like the group to go. I will be looking for people who can assist with organising Meet up's and help with the different levels of Spanish.
At the moment the group meets monthly (or thereabouts). A number of people have asked whether we have considered making it weekly. I simply don't have the time to invest in the group that regularly and to make sure every event works well it will stay monthly for the moment. That said, if possible I would like to increase the meetings to once every 2 or 3 weeks but this is only an idea so watch this space!
The reputation of the group is extremely important and I do not wish to compromise it. Furthermore, there are additional English-Spanish language exchange groups across the city to which a number of members here also belong. This group is a little different as it is designed for people who wish to speak in Spanish, both learners and natives.
So that is the group in a nutshell. I am always happy to receive comments and suggestions from members, so please feel free to contact me. Of course, if you want to rave about the group, please publish your comments on this site!
I have also started a Facebook group to link up to this website and group, hopefully I can use it to communicate with other people that could be interested and with each other to post links in it and share faster. Please join and invite on people who would be interested in this group.
