What we're about
Do you enjoy speaking different languages? Why not join our meetup group and come and practise your - French, Spanish, German, Italian, English as a foreign language (EFL/ESOL) and occasionally other language (e.g. Dutch, Portuguese and Mandarin Chinese) - conversation skills in a friendly, relaxed and supportive atmosphere at various venues in Reigate, Redhill, Merstham, Caterham and surrounding areas! Please give your first name when you join our group.
As well as providing opportunities to practise your foreign language conversation skills these meetups are also very enjoyable social events.
Please note that some of the venues we use also have gardens and/or tables outside. Please remember to check the outside areas too when you come to a meetup, in case the group is sitting outside.
If you join our meetup group but would like to opt out of receiving emails about our events (or to reduce emails to a minimum) just click on your name to bring up your own profile (you can find your name in the list of members), then click on "Email settings" and then you can tick (or untick) the box "New Meetup scheduled" and any other boxes you like, to indicate when (if at all) you want to receive emails from our Meetup group. Even if you opt to receive no emails from our Meetup group you can always look at our Meetup page now and then and check our "Upcoming Meetups" section to see new events, to click to indicate that you are coming to an event, to check for any potential changes to existing events or to cancel your booking if you need to. Meetup announcements are listed chronologically - to see the full list of meetups, please click on "Meetups" or "See all".
If you book to go to an event and then find that you can't go, that's not a problem but please do remember to click to change your RSVP from yes to no, so that the organiser of that meetup will know who's coming. "No shows" (i.e. booking to go to a meetup but not turning up and not changing the RSVP) can be very inconvenient for meetup organisers and persistent 'no shows' may result in being removed from membership of our Meetup group. Also, long-term inactive members who never come to any meetups may be removed from membership of our Meetup group. We do expect members to come to our meetups, at least occasionally.
