About this event


If it is your first time in the group, please read the following information carefully (versión en Español mas abajo).

We will be speaking half an hour in Spanish, half an hour in English. After that first hour, you are free to stay longer for "free style conversation". With a little bit of luck we have a good mix of Spanish and English speakers, so that everybody can practice their target language with a native speaker. We will try to seat you accordingly.

Three important things about this Meetup:

- People are encouraged to respect the designated times to speak in each language. If you run out of words, try with signals and gestures.

- This is a free Meetup, however the physical place we use for the meetings is a cafe/bar. Please, upon your arrival or any time during the meeting remember to order a drink or some food at the counter, so we can continue using this very nice place. Furthermore, currently we ask you for a small donation of $1 or $2 every time you go to cover the costs for maintaining our meetup web page.

- If you are neither English nor Spanish native speaker, you are welcome in the group, just be reminded that people are there for an exchange, so it is appreciated if your level of either English or Spanish is good enough to be able to have a 30 min. conversation in this language.

It will usually not be too difficult to find us. Look for me / other people that seem to be there for the exchange. 

Note: Those under 18 must come with an accompanying adult.


Si es tu primera vez en la Meetup, por favor lee cuidadosamente la siguiente información:

Para que todos podamos practicar seguiremos con la dinámica de hablar media hora en español y media hora en inglés y después haremos conversación libre para la gente que se quiera quedar más rato.

Si tenemos suerte hay mas o menos el mismo numero de nativos ingleses como hispanohablantes y cada uno de nosotros podrá practicar inglés con un hablante nativo de la lengua.

Dos cosas importantes para esta Meetup:

- Hay que intentar respetar los tiempos para hablar en cada idioma. Si se te acaban las palabras, utiliza gestos y señas.

- Esta es una Meetup totalmente gratuita, pero el espacio que utilizamos para reunirnos es un café/bar. Por favor a tu llegada o en algún momento de la reunión recuerda pedir algo para beber o comer en la barra para que podamos seguir utilizando este espacio tan agradable. Además, estamos en fase de recaudar fondos para cubrir los gastos para mantener la página web de meetup, y os rogamos dar $1 o $2 de donación cada vez que vayais a la meetup.

No deberia de ser muy difícil encontrarnos. Buscadme a mi o a otras personas que parecen estar allí para el intercambio. 

Muchas gracias, nos vemos pronto :) Thanks, and see you soon!
