If you are reading this, it’s because you are probably thinking about learning to speak Spanish or maybe you have already started studying the language on your own, but you have realized that you need someone with whom to practice what you have learned. Probably someone whose first language is Spanish or who is fluent in it, someone to share this language learning adventure with!
Well, I have good news for you! I want you to know that you have already found your support group. My name is Ms. Ivette and I have been leading this group since we opened the Waldorf West Library in 2012. We meet the second and fourth Monday of the month and we still continue to do so, but this time virtually through the Google Meet platform. It’s a great group, some of them have been following me for years and some others are new friends.
It’s for that reason that I want to invite you to join our group. We all have the same goal, meet new friends while practicing the language and I have to admit that we also have fun throughout the process. It is a group made up of people who practice Spanish at all levels, mainly intermediate, and reinforce it by studying it on their own using the different resources that the library offers such as Mango Languages, and Spanish audiobooks or Spanish learning books on Hoopla. I also want to mention that Waldorf West Library has one of the county’s largest collections of Spanish and bilingual books for children, youth and adults.
Whatever your motivation is to learn a second language, I’m here to help and give you some brief tips on how to break the ice. Let’s start with a short introductory talk. Small talks help you to bridge the gap and provide information about the other person.
