What we're about

What We’re About

This Meetup is for anyone and everyone interested in sharing their Spanish and/or improving it through talks and social interaction. All levels are welcome. This group was started in January,2017, was re-introduced in 2018 by a new organizer and is now entering its third year. Many of us took Spanish in school or learned a little while traveling and always wanted to do more with it. Others are fluent and enjoying sharing with each other and everyone else.

Our "regular" meetings for ten months now, are every two weeks on Saturday mornings at 10am at Green Sage cafe Westgate Plaza. Other meetings may be announced in addition.

We generally have introductions and then may have discussions on current events from La Noticia, some Spanish language quirks and questions that people have, or a theme for the meeting. When we have a number of new attendees, the introductions and conversation from them sometimes take up the entire meeting.

Anyone fluent (or close to it) who might want to be a co-organizer, please email me.

All levels are welcome, but you should know some Spanish to attend. This is not a class or meant to take the place of learning the basics or advanced grammar. It is meant as a place to practice and share what you already know and discuss ways to learn more.

Encuentrenos y Discuta y Habla en ESPANOL sobre cultura o lo que quieras.

• WHAT WE GENERALLY DO

Nuestra discusion generalmente comienza con los asistentes regulares presentandose brevemente y las assistentes nuevas presentan
sus antecedentes en espanol y/o la cultura hispana: * Donde ellos estudiaron o aprendieron espanol? * De donde son? * De donde ellas ha viajado? * Que partes de la cultura hispana les interesan? Etcetera, etc.

Our discussion generally begins regular attendees introducing themselves briefly and new attendees introducing their background in Spanish language and Hispanic culture: Where did they study or learn Spanish? Where are they from? Where have they traveled? What parts of the culture interest them? Etcetera, etc.

Luego, cada persona tiene la opportunidad de mencionar algo nuevo desde la ultiima vez que estuvieron en el grupo, o algun nuevo en algun tema pasada. Tal vez, un restaurante nuevo ellas discubieron, un nuevo destinatino ellas planear a viajar, una experiencia para appreder el idiomoa etc.

Then each person has the opportunity to bring up some new subject or topic since they were last at the group. Maybe, a new restaurant they discovered, a new Hispanic food they learned to make,a trip they just came back from, a new place they are planning to visit, or an experience in learning the language.

O un nueva commentario or ejemplo como un tema pasado, como comidas hispanas, poetas, artistas, musica, paieses, ciudades, animales (mascotas) in general, y unicos experiencias en sus viajes. Otras veces, las presentaciones y discusion personal duran todo el tiempo!

Or a new comment or example of a past theme, such as Hispanic foods, poets, artists, music, countries, cities, animals in general (mascotas), and other places people have traveled or plan to travel. Other times the introductions and personal discussion last the entire time

• WHAT TO BRING:
Inspiración y pasión por el idioma y la cultura hispana

• Important to know
If you have never been to Westgate shopping center, don't depend on the Google map here. Get directions to Earthfare at Westgate and look for Green Sage on the right. It can be a little tricky the first time.
