When: July 16.

Where: Barrio Central Bar – Google Maps

The exchange of languages will have this structure: we will start with a check-in and then we will have guided moments of easy participation. The time will be of both languages, English and Spanish alike. The hosts will do all of the organization and “break the ice” then you just have to participate. Then you will have free time to chat, have a drink, eat something delicious and spend time with your new friends …

The event is for everyone and is free. The idea is to have a friendly and comfortable space where anyone can go and feel comfortable speaking in a different language. So if you plan to go with your friends or alone, this event would be perfect for you.
