What we’re about

Want to learn to speak Spanish? Or practice your Spanish? Or ESL English?

We have Face-to-Face and Zoom Meetings.

We are a mixed-level group of English and Spanish speakers wanting to improve, very informal and very approachable and always welcoming new members!

And it is is FREE! (well, mostly free.)

It's a social group and not a class - just friends helping friends. (And, of course, if you are a native Spanish speaker who is willing to help us Gringos learn, well..... we really need you to join.)

We meet several times per week: in Sarasota cafés/restaurants. We also have "paid", limited attendance, tutoring sessions ($10). You will easily find Study-Buddies to meet on your own time.

We organize other activities related to Hispanic cultures, from salsa dance and Spanish-language movies to volunteer work. (There may even be some travel to Spanish-speaking countries.)

We don't have a lot of rules, but we do have a few.

Membership is free, many Meetups are Free, but some have a small fee.

1. Any Member can post an Event, but, you must attend your events write and update a description, choose the location, set the limits and cancel it if necessary.

2. RSVP Please! We strongly encourage you to RSVP (and un-rsvp). In some cases where seating is limited, it is mandatory. This is how we measure our success, and communicate with each other, and.... it is our 'appearance' to people looking to join.

3. Spend Money at the restaurants! It is difficult to find good locations and we need to be as generous with them and they are with us!

4. Not a School. Please note we are not a school (you need some basic knowledge of Spanish or English) and not all Meetups are suitable for all members.

We are looking forward to meeting you!
