Spanish Language Exchange

Conversation in Spanish – Over 20 years of Free Workshops

Come polish your Spanish conversation skills every Saturday morning at 10 AM, just drop by the  Centre Saint-Joseph au 1450 boul. Pie X à Laval (Québec) from September to May.

First Visit

Stop by and visit us during our Spanish language exchange, our  “intercambio lingüístico”.  Of course, you will have to introduce yourself, in Spanish.

These meetings are managed by two members of the Association management. The theme for the discussion is usually set the previous Saturday, so you have time to prepare your opinion and vocabulary.

Speaking Spanish

Regular participation requires that you speak Spanish and become a member in the Association. You can buy your annual membership card 15 minutes before the meeting for $30.

You can join our private Facebook  group after completing three Saturday morning exchanges. Ask to join by clicking here AHL Intercambio Lingüístico.
