Group email: Speakeasy Spanish group
When: Fortnightly on Wednesdays
Every 2nd and 4th Wednesday

We meet for lunch every 2nd and 4th Wednesday at a restaurant either in Oliva or surrounding area – dependent on members’ wishes. The idea is that we attempt to speak Spanish for the Main course and English for the First and Dessert Course.

The idea behind the Lunch is to enable us to build our confidence in speaking Spanish in a friendly environment. Each week a suggested Topic is sent out with phrases/verbs and vocabulary in Spanish. This Topic, as mentioned, is only a suggestion in case our conversation grinds to a halt which, so far, it hasn’t! Once in a while we do a bit of revision called the Lucky Dip whereby a member picks a folded piece of paper out of an envelope and tries to answer the question posed on the piece of paper.

So that a booking can be made at the restaurant, members wishing to attend a Speakeasy Lunch need to email Jan, the Group Leader, before the Friday preceding the Wednesday lunch. She will then reply with details of the Topic as well as the venue for the lunch.

Fun and laughter are the main ingredients in our Speakeasy Lunches.
