This group meets on the 2nd and 4th weeks of the month, on Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm. We are a small friendly group with a mutual interest in the Spanish language.
We each prepare a short piece in Spanish on a topic of our choosing, and read it to the group. This can be anything, not necessarily linked to Spain or Spanish culture - we have discussed hobbies, travel, current affairs, what is happening locally, just to mention a few topics. These are used as a starting point for further discussion in Spanish
You do need to know some Spanish to join this group, though some members only studied it at school, many years ago and others have only done a couple of years' study.
Meetings last about two hours and take place at members' houses. We aim to only speak Spanish - but don't always achieve this - and dictionaries or Google translate make frequent appearances! However, we do enjoy ourselves and have a sense of achievement! We are a very friendly group, so please don't worry if you would like to join but feel your Spanish isn't up to scratch, as we all help and encourage each other.
