Not meeting on 2/20, President's day. We meet at 5:30 PM every Monday night except those falling on major holidays. There are a half dozen of us that attend every week. Another dozen or so that stop in every 2nd week, etc.. Another couple of dozen that drop in every 30 to 60 days. We meet to practice speaking Spanish with one another. We are all levels. The more advanced help the less advanced. The less advanced help the beginners. If you are an advanced speaker this isn't for you unless you want to help us learn. There is no charge. Tom, the organizer pays the meetup organization for the website but he never ask us to chip in. Some of us give him $20 a couple times a year to defray his costs. We meet Monday nights at 5:30 and stay until 7 or 7:15. Come early, or come late. Stay late or leave early. Go to meetup dot com and search for Spanish in Kent Washington and you will find us. We meet at the Panera cafe to the east of the Norm Maling Justice Center or South of Showare Center or you may know this as Kent Station. We are usually at the long table south of the fireplace. Some of us bring show and tell stuff. Once we had a man who every week brought us a ten minute numbers exercise. It was hokey because he didn't know his numbers any better than the rest of us but we all hear and speak numbers better in espanol since Jim's contribution. We have a person that attends regularly, originally from Argentina, that helps us with grammar, pronunciation, translations etc. There are handouts every week you can access from the meetup site. There are six tabs under the large red title. Click discussions then click Message Board and we hope to see you Mondays at 5:30 PM at Panera.
