Would you like to improve your Spanish by talking, listening, watching and reading about a wide range of themes in a friendly and supportive event? It's not a formal lesson, but there is some structure and every time we meet we look at different topics, or maybe a little bit of grammar (very easy!), or some new words. the group is sociable and fun. Your £7 contribution includes useful handouts for you to keep.
To make the most of this event, you will already know enough Spanish to have a short conversation using present, future and past tenses.
Recently we have listened/read/watched videos about weddings in the Spanish speaking world, Salta in Argentina and a national park in Ecuador. We always make time for some conversation. In short grammar sections, we have looked at prepositions, phrases with estar and ser, uses of verbs such as hacerse and ponerse, and touched on the imperative and subjunctive. We will be continuing to look at the subjunctive from time to time.
Deadline for RSVP: 12 noon Wednesday. Link is sent out after deadline. Payment should be made between receiving the link and the start of the meeting. If you are new to this group, I will contact you to arrange a short meeting to give you payment details. Please respond before the deadline for RSVPs, as we need to meet in time for your payment to be made.
Minimum number is four participants, maximum is 10. If there are less than four people signed up, the meeting will be cancelled just after the deadline.
This Meetup® group is for people who already know some Spanish - perhaps from holidays or previous studies. You should know how to form the regular present tense and have basic vocabulary including verbs, nouns and adjectives. You can already meet and greet, ask and answer basic questions and you can talk about yourself and your family. You are familiar with some irregular present tense verbs. If you are not sure if this is the right level for you, please send me a message.
**Please note that we use a text book. It is not possible to share a textbook while our events are online**
It's not a formal lesson, it's meant to be enjoyable and sociable, but there are exercises, including listening and reading, and handouts are provided (in PDF form while we are online).

Come and join us for a 1-hour gentle stroll in Priory Park, Reigate while chatting in German. We'll meet at 1.30pm in front of Morrisons supermarket, at the corner nearest to Priory Park. Please bring a mask/face covering in case you need it (e.g. in case you need to use the toilet in the park) and, if necessary, a mac/umbrella in case of light rain. If it rains too heavily the event will be postponed to a future day. This event is suitable for members (and any guests of members) with at least a basic conversational level of German. There's a £5 charge for this event which will be collected in cash on the day (but it will be free of charge for any German native speakers). We'll follow any current rules/guidance on social distancing outdoors.
