¿Habla usted español? Dust off that high school Spanish while networking with other local professionals

Are you looking for a fun way to meet some people and pick up a new skill?  Manchester’s Speak Spanish Meetup is a great way to practice your language skills and have some fun while meeting a variety of people in a laid back, unintimidating environment.

Meetups are every Wednesday from 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM at Panera Bread, 52 March Ave (TJ Maxx Plaza) in Manchester.

Member’s language skills run everywhere from people trying to teach themselves Spanish to people who took a couple years of high school Spanish, all the way up to language teachers and native speakers.  Typical meetings include open networking, games, and conversation in Spanish with enough English to make a new learner comfortable.

I am a member of the group, though I haven’t been for over a year, and I can attest to how much support the group provides for anyone trying to learn Spanish.

Networking doesn’t have to be business cards and cocktails.  Groups like this a great way to meet a broad cross-section of people while building your confidence.  If you can sneak out of the office an hour early once a week or even once a month, the Speak Spanish Meetup is definitely worth your time.
