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 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

A few times a year, members have hosted Spanish movies at their homes, usually with English or (ideally) Spanish subtitles. We plan to be doing this a lot more in 2017.

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.

Weekly Meetings

We meet every Monday and since May 24, 2021 have resumed doing them in person after 60 consecutive weeks of doing them virtually on Zoom during the coronavirus pandemic. (Check the Facebook group page for the latest locations.) We even meet on most holidays. Sometimes if conversations are good we stay even longer, but anyone is free to come and go as they please.


All levels are welcome and meetings are free!
