The group aims to help members gain fluency in speaking Spanish and to improve their listening skills. It is suitable for those who already have a reasonable grasp of Spanish grammar and vocabulary. We try to speak only in Spanish during our meetings (although we sometimes fail). Conversations are wide-ranging and informal and have recently covered, for example, Spanish history, art and politics, as well as other topics of general interest. Members have recently attended live performances of flamenco and other aspects of Spanish culture. Several members visit Spain regularly and one also regularly visits Mexico.
