I originally wanted to create a group where I could teach Spanish and help people improve their knowledge of grammar, vocabulary, and culture. This group can totally do that, but I decided it would be a great way for Spanish Language Learners and English Language Learners to have partners to practice with and possibly develop life-long friendships. We can do cultural activities: movie nights in Spanish (or English); culturally themed restaurants or outings; get togethers with global cuisine. At the dinners and the events, we can discuss the movies we have seen (explaining cultural elements to our counterparts), travel, & life events. We can possibly do 1/2 of the session in English and the other half in Spanish. These meetings will partially take shape based on what YOU want. The first few meetings may be at cafes, restaurants, possibly an open office space. I can do formal Spanish or English lessons too if that's partially what people want. Depending on member participation and desires, we will create and shape our group. :-)
If you speak other languages: Arabic, Chinese, whatever, and you just want to come meet new people or share your culture, you are more than welcome to do so!
When applying for membership: please include a "mug shot" of your face. :) MeetUp has an option to have a photo -- that's where you put it. :-)
