Tell us about yourself and why you are joining this group.

I know some Spanish and would like to learn and practice more. Knowing Spanish is not required to teach ESL, but it can be helpful. My wife and I travel to Spanish speaking countries from time to time. It's fun to speak a little with the local people. They seem to appreciate the effort even though the results are not perfect ;-)

From 1 to 10 (where 1 is being able to only say "hola," and 10 is being fluent), where do you consider you are in (a) Reading, (b) Writing and, (c) Speaking Spanish?

My skill levels are around 3 - 4 for these three areas mentioned. My greatest difficulty is listening, where I'm less than 3 ;-(

Out of the following activities, in which one(s) are you more interested? Grammar/Basic Conversation, Learning/Dancing Salsa or Bachata, Cultural Events: Music/Movies/Arts, Improv, Pubilic Speaking?

Grammar/Basic Conversation, Cultural Events: Music/Movies/Art


My name is Robert (Bob). I am retired but work part time doing math tutoring. I also volunteer as an ESL teacher at MEND, where I met Jose, one of the sponsors.
