Killaloe Library Language Exchange for over 18s

Would you like to learn English / Foreign Language on a one-to-one basis? What is a Language Exchange? Well, the best way to explain it is through an example. Pedro is from Spain and has recently moved to Killaloe. His English is a bit patchy and he would like to improve it. John is Irish and he is learning Spanish, but he never has the opportunity to listen and speak to native Spanish speakers. Now, John and Pedro could help each other out. For example they can meet up once a week and have a conversation exchange, and speak half an hour in English and half an hour in Spanish. There is no cost or homework involved and you learn the language in a social environment. Furthermore, you are more likely to learn other things about a culture that you do not usually learn in a formal language class. You practice your second language by meeting up with native speakers living nearby. Venue: Killaloe Public Library. Free of charge! If interested please ring the library at 061 376062.
