What we're about

LANGUAGE EXCHANGE MONTEREY with https://castilianconnections.com (https://castilianconnections.com/) !!

Join US in a complete Free immersion with a language exchange, you practice more than you would in a class talking with native speakers of the language when you're learning in a relaxed and supportive environment.
A language exchange "Intercambio" is the best training to bridge the gap between classroom learning communicating in the real world practicing what you already learned in a private class!

Make connections, create community with same mindset people, and share our interest for Languages and Cultures!!

EXCHANGE is part of the activities we as Langage Teachers do, more here: FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/CastilianConnections/ Web page: https://castilianconnections.com LEARN/EXPERIENCE/EXCHANGE and more...

SPANISH CLASSES: Academic Instructional Spanish Sessions in different levels will be announced during the week with Times and days to choose. Contact us if you are interested in another day or time. Most of the Classes will be at Monterey Public Library.

WHO:

-Send US a message with your Native Language and the Language you want to improve, level and goals-needs.
We will match you with different language partners in each meeting according to your level and Language needs.

HOW:
-You could follow L.partner guidelines (Cormier Method) to ensure a positive learning environment. You start with 30 min. to 1 hr. in one language and then switch to the other. BRING your notebook for new vocab and fixed expressions + dictionary. You also can exchange languages in any way that works for you and your language partner.

WHY:
-In class there is very little time to practice Speaking because time is spent on instruction, too many students per class,and not enough time for meaningful practice.
This Exchange would work better as practice after a more focused class: Private one on one or Semiprivate.

WHERE:
We will meet in different emblematic Bars, Pubs, Coffee shops in the City to Socialize, make connections, create community with same mindset people, and share our interest for Languages and Cultures!!
