Bonjour, hola, namaste, salaam, konnichiwa, merhaba, ni hao, and hello!
When? First Wednesday of every month, 7pm
Where? This one will be at Beaver's. Parking is not easy here! You'll probably have to find street parking, maybe a couple of blocks away depending on what time you arrive. Getting there early or even carpooling can alleviate this problem.
Who? Anyone who wants to speak or practice another language.
Do you speak another language (or 10)? Do you want to learn or practice another language? Then come join us! You can expect to meet speakers of a variety of languages, and all are welcome.
This is a good opportunity to learn or practice a foreign language with others who are also learning or who are native speakers. It's also a good opportunity to meet a language partner to start a language exchange.
NOTE: Time and place are subject to change! Please check back before the meetup to make sure you have the latest information! The group is new and we welcome suggestions, so please do contact us if you have any.

Song of the week
I thought it would be fun to start posting music from around the world, given the nature of this group. Feel free to post recommendations, because I'm sure I'm not the only one who loves hearing new music from around the world.
One of my favorite groups, Amadou et Mariam, is a blind couple from Mali with a beautiful pair of voices. They sing in French and Bambara, but have partnered with others like Manu Chao to incorporate bits of Spanish and English in their songs. Enjoy!
