Spanish Conversation Social Hour

Saturday, March 25, 2017

10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Dust off your Spanish conversation skills and join us for some fun stories, daily conversations, and more in this four session series!  

This four week series meets each Saturday morning through March 25, and is designed for non-native speakers who wish to practice their Spanish conversation skills in a relaxed, casual environment.  There will be fun topics to discuss, stories to share, and projects to explore while using previous knowledge of the Spanish language.  While this series is not geared towards those new to the language or just learning the basics, it’s a wonderful opportunity for those who may not have to opportunity to regularly practice and improve their spoken Spanish skills.

Space is limited and pre-registration required.  Please contact Janet Ryan at 413-259-3223 or to register.

Participants must be able to attend all four sessions.
