*** THURSDAY MEET-UP! *** We will be in one of the tables at the riverside terrace cafe or central bar please look for the FRENCH and SPANISH flags.
¡Hola/Bonjour! Are you a fluent speaker of either French or Spanish and would you like to improve your conversation skills in the other language?
It's fairly easy to practice our English in London, but sometimes it's difficult to find someone for a French/Spanish language exchange, so let's get together and speak in French AND Spanish ONLY!
What is this?
We meet up every couple of weeks and speak French and Spanish in a relaxed atmosphere! :)
Where is it ?
The meet up will take place in the second floor at the Royal Festival Hall (in either the BLUE or GREEN areas depending on seat availability). The exact location will be announced on the day of the meet up. Otherwise, please find the table with the FRENCH and SPANISH flags by riverside terrace cafe.
How does it work?
Normally, during the first half hour, while we wait for everyone to arrive and get their drinks, we have a relaxed group conversation in a mixture of Spanish and French.
Then, we divide into smaller groups and speak for about 30 minutes in each language. Then we change groups and start again!
The "official" part of the event finishes at 8.30 pm but the night goes on for anyone who's up for another drink. ;)
How do I sign up?
Please RSVP and you'll be added to the waiting list.
The reason there is a waiting list is in order to make sure we have a (roughly) even number of fluent or advanced speakers of either language. Past meetings have worked best when there wasn't an overrepresentation of one language.
If you RSVP and then realise you won't be able to make it, please change your RSVP status so someone else can take your spot! :)
What level is required?
During the Meetup, we do NOT speak English, so you should have a conversational level in both French and Spanish.
Most people attending are usually native or advanced in one language and at least lower-intermediate (A2) in the other language, and this seems to work quite well! :)
I'm a beginner in French and/or Spanish - can I still come?
As this is a conversation group, it's not very useful if you're a beginner in either language (or especially if you're a beginner in both!). Please do join us once you have a conversational level. :)
If you're looking for Spanish classes, please contact Samuel.
If you're looking for French classes, please contact Jackie.
I have other questions...
No worries! Please leave a comment or send Abraham a private message.
¡Hasta pronto! À bientôt!
