This summer affords us the opportunity to bring our language community back together while remaining overly cautious and keeping everyone safe. We will meet outside only and in case of inclement weather (rain) the meeting will be reschedule to Thursday.
We invite you every Tuesday morning for a “desayuno en español,” an hour of conversation in Spanish over coffee in a relaxed atmosphere with native speakers. These gatherings are for anyone interested in practicing Spanish outside of a classroom structure and you do not have to be enrolled in one of our classes to participate (although we would love if you were!). Beginning through advanced speakers are welcome. We will need a minimum number of participants to run this activity. Therefore, please sign up early!
This is not a structured class but rather a social gathering during which the only requirement is that you be willing to speak Spanish only as we assist you when needed to keep the conversation flowing.
Feel free to bring your coffee, tea, food items.
Last but not least, we will assume that you have been fully vaccinated or will be wearing a mask and/or keeping “social distances” to ensure everyone’s safety. However this will be managed entirely on the honor system so we ask kindly that you respect the concerns of those who remain vulnerable due to unrelated health issues. Thank you!
If you know that this is the right setting for you, please sign up! If you are not sure: please get in touch by email.
