What we're about
Practice conversational Spanish in a relaxed, encouraging atmosphere with a NJ-certified Teacher of Spanish. This group has established meetings for both beginners and intermediate level Spanish students. For more information about instructor Tricia Idrobo and her classes, see https://amistadspanish.wordpress.com/about or e-mail her at pfressidrobo (@) hotmail.com.
Beginners Conversation – Thursday evenings 7:00 – 8:30 PM
Meets in private homes in Livingston, New Jersey
This group is for students who have studied beginning Spanish and would like to practice what they have learned. Often we start with a question or topic and engage in conversation, writing new vocabulary words on the board. Sometimes we practice specific grammar points requested by participants. There is a $10 fee per class, which goes to the professional services of the teacher, as well as to Meetup fees. RSVP on meetup.com as early as possible to reserve your spot at the meeting each week!
Intermediate Conversation – Monday evenings, 7:00 – 8:30 PM
Meets in restaurant on border of Livingston and Roseland, New Jersey
This group is for intermediate to advanced students who feel comfortable holding a basic conversation, and have studied various verb tenses and intermediate vocabulary. At these meetings, we generally start with everyday conversation about what participants have been doing in their lives, or items in the news. Then we discuss an article in Spanish that was sent the week before to be read before the meeting. Sometimes, instead of an article, we have an audio or video, or do a special activity like a game, music night, etc. There is a $10 fee per class, which goes to the professional services of the teacher, as well as to Meetup fees. Note: this fee does not include any food that you purchase at the restaurant. RSVP on meetup.com as early as possible to reserve your spot at the meeting each week! Once you RSVP, you will be sent the article for the next upcoming meeting.
