Eastside Spanish-English Exchange allows people who are fluent in either Spanish or English to improve conversational ability in the other language. Our primary focus is conversing in Spanish over lunch. Members often bring flyers, advertisements or other printed items that have been translated into both languages, for discussion. We welcome both Spanish speakers who want to share their language and culture, and those learning the language at any level. Most participants order food when they arrive and then bring their lunch to the meeting. We generally meet in the northwest corner of the restaurant or near the glass wall of the indoor playground so that we can rearrange tables and see each other without disrupting restaurant traffic patterns. Participants arrive when they can and leave when they need to, as several utilize their lunch hours to attend. There is no class on Thanksgiving Day.
