The Group consists at present of nine people interested in improving their spoken Spanish, which ranges from a keen beginner with no previous knowledge, through to two people who have lived and worked in Spain; and everything in between. A number of group members visit Spain or Argentina regularly.
The group meets every Tuesday morning at 10am for one hour at the White Bear, Shipston. There's no charge, but we always buy a tea or coffee.
Our work pattern is as follows: we work with an internet Spanish course called videoEle, and each week we listen and watch it, then read and translate the transcription. We follow this with some grammar revision, particularly verbs. Finally, each member gives the group a description of some activity they've been engaged in, in Spanish; followed by questions, also hopefully in Spanish. There is homework, which people can do if they wish.
In November we went to El Cafe in Shipston for tapas, with orders being given (mostly) in Spanish.
