We are a community of people who practice English every Friday at a coffee shop in Buenos Aires. It's an easy going and informal meeting, free, just for pleasure.
We have been meeting every Friday for over 17 years to practice our oral English.
All are at a level that enables us to speak English fluently, which is a requirement to participate.
We like to chat about ordinary things but traveling is our favorite subject.
Every Friday, foreign travelers who are on holidays in Buenos Aires and are interested in meeting "natives" visit us. This kind of exchange and sharing of cultures and points of view means learning and developing for all of us. Open to all ages, but those below 18 must come with an accompanying adult.
If you are interested in participating and can speak an advanced level of English,
join us. FAMEnovo Cabildo 2921 Fridays 20/22 hs.
