Beginners to Intermediate - Let's Learn and Practice Spanish

It's time to learn and practice Spanish while having fun. These meetings will be mainly for beginner and intermediate Spanish students. 

BEGINNER 

You more or less know if you’re a beginner, but in case you have some doubts, here’s some help. If you’re a beginner you probably… 

• Cannot start, and hold a basic conversation. 

• Understand almost nothing when someone speaks at a normal speed. 

• Have a limited vocabulary, say; you only know “hola” and “adios.” 

• Have difficulty reading basic sentences. 

• Don’t know the differences among the present, past, and future tenses. 

If you can relate to any of the above situations, you might be beginner Spanish learner. To improve your language skills you need more time listening and practicing the language in any way possible.

INTERMEDIATE

If you’re an intermediate learner, chances are that…
You don’t get a lot of time to practice Spanish out loud. And when you do, you’re not quite sure if you are saying it right. 

• You have difficulty understanding native speakers, and find yourself saying “Hable más despacio, por favor.” 

• You know a lot of words in Spanish, as well as grammatical topics, but have a hard time putting it all together when writing or speaking.

• You usually translate from English to Spanish in your head before speaking. 

• You understand conjugations.

• When you speak Spanish, and make a mistake and someone corrects you, you find yourself saying “I knew that!” 

If you can relate to any of the above situations, you might be an intermediate Spanish learner. To improve your language skills you might just need a little bit more time practicing the language, preferably with a native speaker.


La Reunón 

During these meetings, we’ll cover a variety of the aspects of the language. 


Practical Vocabulary 

The more words we know, the more we’re able to express ourselves. You will learn 10 practical vocabulary words at each meeting. You’ll be able to put these words into practice right away by creating sentences with them. 


Instructional Readings 

Most people are visual learners. When we read something out loud, we use more than just one of the senses. We see the information; we say it, and we hear it. That’s why we’ll spend some time reading during each meeting. 


Grammar 

Knowing the grammar of the target language is very important; it clarifies many doubts and guides us when we are lost and need to make a decision. We’ll touch upon some grammatical topics during every session. 


Conversational 

In my opinion, speaking is the most important skill to have when one learns a new language. You’ll have the opportunity to speak, and the benefit of being corrected. I’ll do my best to help you with your pronunciation, so you can sound like a native speaker. 


Do you want more Spanish? 

If you want to learn and/or practice more Spanish, in a one-on-one setting, call me or text me at[masked], or send me an email at [masked] . 


INSTRUCCIONES IMPORATANTES

The most important things to bring are s smile and a positive attitude


We’ll be in the patio, in the back part of the store, next to the parking lot. Look for a sign like this one: 

Bring a jacket or a sweater in case it gets cold. 

Support our Spanish group by donating what you can. During these meetings you can pay your optional $5-membership fees. You can donate a couple of dollars, $5, or even if it’s only $50 or $100. 

This money helps us to make sure we keep having more events. 

It also helps us pay for the Meetup site fees and the domain and hosting of our website www.elgrupoepico.com

Finally, have fun and give us your feedback. The main goal of these meetings is to learn, but also to have fun in the process. 

Let us know how we are doing, and how we can make our group better. Also, let us know if you have any comments or suggestions. We love to hear from you.

See you on Wednesday!

- José
