You can find each language and level by looking at the corresponding signs at each table.

" The SEEM Program"
What did Julie Wyner (http://www.meetup.com/Sydney-Spanish/members/13731774/) who attended SEEM meetup for the first time say?
This was my first MeetUp, I attended alone and certainly felt welcome and not at all awkward or left out. I've been trying to learn Spanish on and off for a few years and am still trying to find confidence in speaking (my reading skills are good and my vocab isn't bad but I just go blank on a lot of words when I try to speak - words that I know perfectly well! - I think due to nervousness). I think these MeetUps could help me a lot in getting some much-needed practice in a casual situation, so I'm going to come back for more, and just hope it's not too frustrating for those that have to put up with my halting attempts at speaking in Spanish! it's also great to just listen - esp since the mix of native and non-native Spanish speakers means the pace is right for me to understand most of what is said, which is a confidence boost. Recommended!
