Why practice Spanish?

Over 38 million people in the U.S. speak Spanish at home.

Spanish is the majority language in 21 countries and a second language in many others.

Learning a second language helps slow brain aging.

It's fun!

What We Do

Fort Collins Spanish Conversation Group does what a bunch of friends normally would. Talk over a cup of coffee. Celebrate occasions with food and drinks. We even watch movies once in a while.


.

The only ground rule is that we speak exclusively in Spanish.

Conversation

We converse weekly over coffee entirely in Spanish. We have been doing so every Monday evening, 50-52 weeks per year, since 2006. (Scroll down to the end for where and when.)

Presentations

Once in a while, members do slideshow presentations of their latest travels or adventures—again, only in Spanish. Anyone can volunteer to do so at any time!

Socializing

We also go out to eat or drink margaritas for special occasions. Sometimes the reasons for doing so are colorful (celebrate No Dirty Dishes Day, anyone?) We've even gone salsa dancing at the Rio!

Movie nights

Members have hosted Spanish movies at their homes, usually with English or (ideally) Spanish subtitles. We try to do this monthly.

Our History

We started as a Meetup.com Spanish conversation group that Tessa Davis founded in July 2006. But due to Meetup fees, Tessa moved the group to a free platform.


From 2007-2021, Felix Wong was the chief organizer. He created this website and continues to maintain it along with our Facebook group page.


In September 2021, Felix's good friend "E" became the chief organizer after Felix began to transition to a new life in Spain.
