銆怱F銆慗apanese - English language exchange at Online

Hello, my name is Ryu馃槉  I am Japanese馃嚡馃嚨  I can speak a little English
My favorite food is Udon. (Japanese noodle)

This group aims to create online opportunities for "language exchange" in which "Japanese learners who can speak English" and "English learners who can speak Japanese" practice and teach each other's learning languages.
We are also considering holding it at the same time as Japan and other countries.

I don鈥檛 know if it鈥檚 correct ( because I can speak only a little English ) but I think that talking with someone is the best way to learn a language. In addition, I believe that we can discover new wisdom and values 鈥嬧媡hrough the opportunity to talk with people from different cultures.

Nowadays, it is not easy for us to go abroad.
But online, wherever we are, we can create opportunities for "language exchange" with each other.

I am happy that various exchanges will be born from here to all over the world.
I also want to create an opportunity where "global friends become more normal".

Let鈥檚 join and have fun馃憤.

Eyeliner, drawn. Mascara, done. & Lastly, Lipstick added. The San Francisco Lipstick Lesbians meet-up is for the Bay Area lipstick lesbian, femme, and "chapstick" femme community.

This meet-up is for Bay Area/ NorCal femme women identified ONLY looking to make new friends, network, or date other femme identifying women. It's great for femme women new to the Bay Area looking to make friends and get involved in the community.  We are a diverse group of fun, loving femmes ranging from mid-20s to mid-50s that enjoy everything this city offers. Bisexual and Trans-identifying women are welcomed. This space does include single women and women in relationships (committed or open) so please respect that this space is all encompassing for our femme queer women's community. All event's reserved space are strictly for women identified only, this includes guest(s).

For all you femme identifying women interested in joining our group please send a request. To be considered for approval ensure you have these requirements: 1- a clear head-shot photo of yourself (photo should only be of you) so we can recognize you during our events, and 2- your actual first name or nickname; these are required to join and remain in the group. 

The official organizers have a monthly cocktail/ mocktail event in various bar locations in San Francisco, these events are a great way to meet and get to know the amazing ladies of this meetup, so make sure to RSVP and come to those events (usually on Friday or Saturday 6-9 PM); these are especially great for 1st timers.

We normally go up to all that attend at each event and introduce ourselves, especially with 1st timers and we do keep track no shows.~~

San Francisco Spanish-Language MeetUp

San Francisco, CA

San Francisco Spanish-Language MeetUp

Hola!

We are a group of Spanish speakers, from native speakers to beginners alike, who get together to chat en espa帽ol. We are a member-driven group with members pitching in to organize, greet new members and socialize. Our regular events are:

Mid-Week MEGA MEETUP: Every third Wednesday of the month you can expect a regular meetup at Crystal Jade (unless otherwise stated in the event calendar) in downtown SF. This meetup is larger and may have a waiting list at times. These meetups are lively with lots of people meeting and chatting in Spanish while sipping drinks and having some appetizers.

LA HORA FELIZ: This is a popular bi-monthly meetup usually on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month at Baobab Cafe in the Mission. People come to celebrate the end of the work week and mingle in Spanish in an upbeat, fun, atmosphere. Members often hang around until late.  Feeling hungry after all the chatting, propose a dinner plan with your fellow hablantes! 

Mid-Week Spanish Meetup:  Come join this group for a mid-week lunch where you can practice your Spanish. Meeting once month, this sub-group is a fun way to practice Spanish during your lunch hour.


We also host other events at non-regular intervals.  If you are a member you will be notified of these special events:

Hiking en espa帽ol, East Bay Spanish Happy Hour, Spanish Book Clubs, Concerts, Sporting Events, Saturday Caf茅 en espa帽ol.

Spanish Language Workouts: These workshops are designed with the learner in mind interested in improving their speaking. Each workshop is lead by a professional teacher who guides attendees in discussing fun and diverse topics in Spanish. Ideal for mid beginner to intermediate levels. Native speakers always welcome for free! First workshop free for Meetup members (later workshops at a discount for members). You can find these events on the calendar (from time to time) and here:  http://abclanguagesf.com/spanish-workouts

General info:

GROUP MINGLING: Please be open to members entering the meeting.  This means if you are already mingling and see a new member, please greet him or her and invite them into your chatting circle. If you are the person arriving, remember that most everyone else, like you, also arrived alone. If it is your first time coming, I highly recommend arriving on time and getting to know people in a smaller setting. If you arrive later it may appear more intimidating, but trust me super easy if you just walk up to anyone, you will see how friendly our members are.

WHAT SPANISH LEVEL TO EXPECT: Native speakers of Spanish are common in the group as well as intermediate to advanced speakers. Beginners are also welcome and people are super friendly in helping out by speaking slowly and being patient.  If you are total beginner, consider taking a class through ABC Languages: https://www.abclanguagesf.com/spanish.html

WHAT ATMOSPHERE TO EXPECT: Lively, social, fun!

PREFER A DIFFERENT STYLE OF MEETUP, location or meeting time? Just let the organizers know and we can make you an Event Organizer and you may put on meetups where and when you like.
