Toucan Talk Language Exchange

Description

The language exchange is special because it’s led by teachers from Toucan Spanish School who give activities & exercises to each table of participants. This slightly more formal approach means Spanish students and locals alike can practice their speaking about a variety of topics and situations. Thus avoiding the usual situation where you end up introducing yourself to new people over and over all night at more social events.

Toucan Talk is every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 6-8pm at the Toucan Cafe and open to everyone and all levels of Spanish / English.
