* Valencia Social Club Manifesto *

The sole aim of this group is to get people chatting along with a having a hefty dose of fun.

El único objetivo de este grupo es lograr que la gente se conozca e interactúe, siempre disfrutando de una atmósfera agradable con considerables dosis de diversión.

The plan thus far is regular drinks at the weekend but we with plans to expand and have a range of different meet ups regularly. Ideas for different societies so far are; partying, couch surfing, language exchanges, fitness & sport, films, lunching and dating etc.

Así, el plan, de momento, es quedar para tomar algo los fines de semana, pero la idea es ampliarlos más y conseguir tener unas cuantas actividades y quedadas regulares como: salir de fiesta, intercambio de idiomas, deportes y actividades al aire libre, cine, salir a comer y, ¿por qué no?, ligar…

If this sounds like your cup of tea please feel free to come along, non-English speakers (especially the Spanish) are welcome if you want to come and practise your English. Hopefully everyone will be able to meet people of like mind and socialise in ways that suit them.

Si te suena bien y como algo en lo que te gustaría participar, apúntate siempre que quieras. A los no angloparlante (y en especial, a los españoles), sois bienvenidos si queréis venir y practicar inglés. Esperamos que todos seáis capaces de conocer gente con cosas en común y podáis socializar de una manera que vaya con vosotros.

Check us out on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates.

Síguenos en Facebook y Twitter para saber más y conocer los últimos planes.

All the best, your friendly neighbourhood, Valencia Social Club

Os deseo lo mejor, vuestro amigable vecino, Valencia Club Social

Language exchange @ Portland Ale House

There are 2 Language exchange nights!!
@ The Portland Ale House.

Every Tuesday and Wednesday from 20.30 onwards.

Not a tradtional language exchange as the event is more geared towards speaking English, but they are benefits to that especially for native English speakers who recieve a few free beers!!! For donating their time.

The location of the Portland Ale House is Calle Salamanca, 10, 46005 Valencia, Spain, ask for the wonderful host Mike and he'll direct you to the language exchange.

Language exchange partners (Loquo.com)

One of the best language exchange forums for finding language exchange partners is Loquo.com.
The Valencia specific address is http://valencia.loquo.com/, you can put a notice requesting a language exchange in whatever language you want.

When posting a notice, put as much detail as you can about your level, language goals, something about your interests / background and a few personal details like your age and gender.

This is will save you and the other people looking for language exchanges a lot of time and effort, as people can tell if you are the right exchange partner for them.. For people who are responding to a notice, the same applies, post as much detail as you can.

Remember the amount of effort you put into your notice / response the more enthusiasm and commitment you show in making the language exchange work.

Language exchanges / intercambios, social learning.

Hey all,
As you know this is a club for meeting people and socialising. One of the best ways of doing this is via language exchanges, not only are you able to socialise, but learn a language as well!

There are many types of language exchanges; pen pals, one on one, group meetings etc.
Because a lot of our members are currently learning a different language, we thought i'd be a good idea for us to post some notices of language exchanges taking place in the valencia area.

So if you know of any language exchange groups or a places to find language exchange partners, please contact us via this blog (comments) or via TheValenciaSocialClub Facebook Page, and we'll post your notices.
