Ready to Join?

Dear all! It’s my pleasure to organize the first event of language exchange as the group consul and I would like to do it a little different then the traditional meet up.

Let’s go shopping on March 9th, Protected content !

The idea is to meet up at a mart, a hypermarket and pick some households for one or two of us who would volunteer for shopping that day. We choose a language of interest, decide a market to meet, go to different aisles and ask members of participants to pick up the items by telling the name in the chosen language for the day.
The volunteer who is to do shopping and has decided the language for this time can assist through body language, by pointing or through any other means but NOT by explaining in English or any other language that can be otherwise understood by participants…. I think this activity will be fun and will provide unforgettable moments that will certainly help to remember the names of the products, sentences and other linguo-social markers experienced that day. Should someone like to make notes, take pictures etc… feel free to do so for refreshing your memories later.
Once done shopping, we will meet at a chosen spot in town to sit, revise, mingle and jingle to give a super boost to socializing simultaneous to language exchange.

I am looking forward to your suggestions concerning
1. Language of interest
2. Volunteer who would like to do his/ her shopping this day
3. Place of shopping
4. Time of shopping
5. Place for meet up later that evening
6. Time of meetup
7. How many of you would be interested to participate
8. Other suggestions to make it a more interactive and fun activity for everyone

Note that suggestions will be chosen based on the number of votes any particular suggestion will get. Kindly also note that the suggestions will be accepted until March 3rd after which I will decide either based on the number of votes given or, if none, as per my recommendation :)
Please do not hesitate to comment or write your opinion. It is you who will make it a fun experience so do participate with full spirit and let’s make language exchange an unforgettable experience to enjoy in months ahead :)

Looking forward to meet many of YOU!!
