It's simple: have some drinks, speak in Portuguese, and have fun. No English allowed. Bringing a buddy is encouraged!
Around the room will be facilitators and listeners with stickers. Facilitators are fluent and/or native speakers that are there to keep the conversation going. Listeners are language-lovers that are just there to observe and absorb.
*If you're a native or fluent speaker that would like to help facilitate, send [email protected] an email.
What if I’m too scared to speak?
Totally understand. It's nerve-wracking to put yourself out there and make mistakes. Fortunately, you'll be surrounded by people making mistakes. To make it easier, bring a buddy. We will also have "listener" stickers for those who just want to absorb.
Do I have enough language experience to do this?
People that have zero language experience are still welcome to come. Maybe you'll pick up a word or two.
Is the event free?
YES! But drinks are not. Normal prices for drinks in exchange for letting us use the space for free. Happy hour is until 7pm.
Are drinks free?
No. Tip your bartender!
How do I know there will be good speakers there?
We make sure there are fluent speakers at each event. Contact [email protected] if you’re interested in being a facilitator.
Will there be future events in other languages?
Yes! If you have a specific interest, email [email protected]
