What we're about

We are a Spanish school in Chicago called LALC www.lalcenter.com and we organize events where my Students can practice their English with Spanish nativo speakers. On these events we Exchange Spanish for English at our location in River North. The System is like speed dating where a Spanish speakers sit in one Table and the English Speaker sita in front. They speak 30 min in English and 30 min in Spanish so you both can practice.
We charge for the drinks in cash to Cover the event costs. We do it in our location so it is not so noisy in a bar.
Mara Bogado Poisson is the owner of the school and she Learned a Lot on these kind of events and also made a lot of Friends looping fear for the new Language.
