Advanced and Intermediate Spanish Language Book & Film Club in Worcester

CLUB DE AMANTES DE LA LENGUA ESPAÑOLA EN WORCESTER

Hola, I'm Hermes and it will be my pleasure you join me in this language journey!

TO WHOM IS THIS CLUB FOR: We're building a Hispanic friends network, a book club and film discussions. This meet up is intended for Spanish native speakers as well non-native Spanish advanced and intermediate learners (beginners welcome) that want to have the opportunity to practice the language by expressing themselves and share any topic with others. No matter the level, beginner, intermediate or advanced, you'll have the chance to improve your listening and speaking skills. We will discuss books originally written in Spanish as well films produced in or translated into Spanish. Also we will chat in an informal and friendly environment about daily life topics. (It is not required you read or watch the books or movies beforehand. However if you do, you're giving yourself the opportunity to engage more with the language).

PARTICIPATION IS FREE: Joining, attending and participating in this club has no monetary cost (gratis).

HOW THE CLUB MEETING WILL BE RUN: Participants will always use Spanish to express their ideas, questions, answers, etc. If you don’t know how to express a specific idea in Spanish, we still want you to rephrase it, force yourself to think in Spanish, and break it down in terms that you already know. If you believe your Spanish level is higher than another participant, please be respectful and considerate. There are no non-sense or wrong comments. This club is exactly for that, to improve ourselves (including myself: everyday I learn something new).

BOOKS FOR THIS MEETUP: Advanced Spanish speakers can read one or both of the following: "MÁS ALLÁ DEL INVIERNO" by Isabel Allende; or "No voy a pedirle a nadie que me crea" by Juan Pablo Villalobos.

FILMS FOR THIS MEETUP: Intended for intermediate levels, you can watch one or both: "JULIETA" from Almodóvar; or "Como agua para chocolate". (If you believe you're on an intermediate Spanish level, feel free to not read the books and only watch a movie or both.) (If you’re an advanced speaker you don't need to watch a film, but you're welcome to do it, so you can help and interact with the ones who watched them).

I suggest you to use only Spanish subtitles and I strongly discourage to use English subtitles. The goal is not to fully understand film. It's to get you more familiar with Spanish conversations, no matter you don't get 100% of the messages.

If you know someone that might benefit from this club, please share it with them as well in your social media networks. ¡Gracias por leer!
