DETAILS
- SEEK a partner and SPEAK your foreign language with him or her or practice in small groups.
- This can be whatever you make it: introductory chit chat or serious teaching...
- If you do not feel fluent enough feel free to prepare something in writing or speaking points.
- Please post what language you are native in and what language you would like to practice.
- We will rotate every 20 min or so between conversation partners so you can offer your native expertise and practice your foreign language skills as well. You do not have to rotate but please keep in mind that everybody who is offering his native expertise should also get the chance to practice his or her foreign language.
- I will have some cue cards with topic ideas to make the conversation easier if needed.
- Please bring snacks and/or drinks if you need it

WHEN
- We will chat for 15 minutes until everybody is settled.
- At 615pm we start promptly conversing in groups, so please be there in time
- Bryant Park is showing a movie at sunset so it might get very crowded
