I was inspired to create this group by my Spanish language evening class students in Edinburgh.
Our aim is to get together as a group of Spanish language learners who want to practice and perfect their conversational skills. We'll meet regularly and practice out of the language class room in a relaxed, social environment and with the support of an experience Spanish language teacher.
The group is open to Spanish language learners that are a bit familiar with the basics of the language (post-beginners) so we can get talking! We'll be working on a specific topic each time, f.e. how to agree / disagree with something in conversation, how to react to good/bad news, how to encourage or support someone, etc. Any ideas for topics are welcome, of course. Materials will be provided to kick start conversations and there'll be games and the like! The purpose is to learn and have fun at the same time.
There'll also be a 'cultural corner' to talk about some aspect of Spanish culture or language that does not appear in books!
We ask members for a £5 contribution towards each event to cover Meetup membership fees and any preparation and materials.
