What we're about

This group is for those who want to practice conversation in Spanish and/or English in a friendly, supportive, informal environment. Everyone is welcome, but we recommend that you have a level of at least A2 in your target language to facilitate conversation, as no formal teaching takes place.

As per MeetUp regulations, we ask that you be over 18 if you want to join the group.

The main events take place at the Benjamin Huntsman pub on Cambridge St in Sheffield city centre every alternate Tuesday and Wednesday, and are an excellent way for people to chat and make new friends! We also occasionally offer other types of activities such as meeting for a coffee, meals or trips out. If you have ideas of things you would like to do or places to visit, or you have a particular skill or hobby that you would like to share with us, please let us know!

The group attracts people with a wide variation in linguistic skills and confidence, so it is vital that everyone feels respected and encouraged to participate in the conversations. We are all learners to varying degrees; patience, mutual support, and tolerance of other peoples’ efforts are what helps an intercambio to function. We learn from listening and helping others as well as from trying to talk!

Of course it should also go without saying that members are expected to show respect towards each other generally. The organisers reserve the right to rescind membership from a participant (without refund of subs) if they deliberately cause upset to other individuals or to the group as a whole (but we would hope to clear things up with a chat before then!)

There is a small charge for membership: as from 9 October 2018, pre-existing members who have already attended previous meetings will pay £5/year. New members, or people who've previously joined but not yet come along to a meeting, will pay £1 per meeting for their first two meetings, then £3 to continue for the year.

So, if you want to join a Spanish/English language exchange, meet new people, are prepared to have a go and help others do the same, please join us!

I look forward to seeing you soon!

Regards,

Penny
