Olympia Spanish Conversation Meetup

"Casual, fun, relaxing events for getting together and practicing your Spanish�maybe never quite "perfecting" it, but getting just a little bit better each time, while meeting fun, kind, and interesting people (people like you!). Native Spanish speakers who would enjoy helping people learn their language are also welcome!! If you really enjoy using your Spanish, and enjoy meeting other people who like Spanish as much as you do, we would love to have you join us.

We meet on the first and third Mondays of each month, because your weekend is probably already busy, and having something to look forward to on Monday just allows that weekend feeling to last one day longer!"

Location:

Varies. See the Olympia Spanish Conversation Meetup web page.

Ongoing Seattle Events

Weekly Sunday meetings, plus frequent events on other days

The Seattle Spanish Society

S3 holds weekly 'Group Intercambios', which are casual discussion groups for both native English and Spanish speakers to meet and practice their two great languages.

S3 meets at a bar. This does not suit some people. If you are such a person, please think very deeply and for an extremely long time about whether you will become despondent that we do not meet at a church or library. Of course, if you know of any churches or libraries serving a wide variety of domestic and imported beer, maybe we could work something out...

That said, we are pleased to invite you into the prestigious and glorious ranks of the Seattle Spanish Society! Please get started by viewing our short orientation video.

Location:

Varies. See The Seattle Spanish Society web page.



Ongoing Tacoma Events

Club Español de Tacoma

"Tacoma Spanish Club is simply a group of both native and nearly fluent non-native Spanish speakers that get together and socialize in Spanish. Just show up and (in Spanish) we will welcome you and include you in our conversation. The only rule is NO English! This meetup is mainly for advanced, nearly fluent and native Spanish speakers. Beginning Spanish speakers are very welcome to come and listen, but unfortunately we cannot speak English to you to include you in the conversation because our goal is to speak Spanish only. The native speakers can help with a word here and there if you need it, but we cannot provide full English interpretation. We laugh a lot and make it fun. The only way to get better at Spanish is to keep speaking it. Don' t worry too much about making mistakes just come, relax and have fun."

Varies. See the "Club Español de Tacoma" webpage.
