Next Meetup

English-Spanish Tutoring for Pure Beginners with Martha!
Hola amigos! Soy Martha nativa de Colombia. I've been living in Sarasota for the last four and a half years and I'm very happy to announce this new meetup and invite you to join me in this new journey. I've created this innovative tutorial conversation especially for all non Spanish Speakers from pure basic beginners level. If you would like to reinforce or improve and practice your Spanish either because you speak more English or are not fluent or simply because have the Spanish origins but are not familiar with it. It would be half tutorial and half conversation in which we are going to learn and to practice all the subjects from basic grammar to activities that would be helpful in order to create a fluent conversation and the most important is that together we will do the class. Every class I will bring a new topic but also you are free to suggest other subjects or points of interest according your purposes and needs. All that you have to bring with you is a notebook or paper to take notes, a pen and a dictionary (optional) and the best positive energy to start. Don't feel shy if your level of Spanish is poor. I'm here to help you and to solve all your questions and inquires. All the ideas or suggests will be more than welcome and very appreciated. There will be a fee of $10 per student since all the material will be provided. Amigos hope you can join me and I'm looking forward to seeing you soon! Please RSVP as a courtesy for other students that might want to join us. Hasta pronto!

What we're about

We are a mixed group of English and Spanish speakers interested in improving our conversational skills. We are very informal and relaxed and always welcome new members! 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 normally meet several times per week: we rotate between various downtown Sarasota cafés/restaurants. We also have "paid", limited attendance, tutoring sessions ($5 - $10 to the Tutor and the location venue). You are welcome and encouraged to find Study Buddies and meet on your own time.

We also organize other activities related to Hispanic cultures, ranging from salsa dance classes and Spanish-language movies to all types of cultural events. There may even be some travel to Spanish-speaking countries.

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

1. Any Member can post an Event, but, you must attend your events (Event Manager) and 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!
