- CAN I WATCH LATER? Yes! Sign-up and we'll email you a recording
This conversation group provides an opportunity for those with an intermediate to advanced knowledge of Spanish (all levels within this range are welcome!) to practice their speaking skills in a friendly environment. Fluency is not required, just a desire to improve and engage with others in Spanish conversation. Participants will support each other in building conversational skills, and sessions will end with a Q&A segment for grammar/pronunciation/vocabulary points that may have arisen and require clarification.
- Duration: 60 mins
- Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (a recording will be available)
Meet the Host, Jamile
Born in Brazil, Jamile Lawand spent her formative years between the U.S. and Spain. Her fascination with language and culture led her to study Spanish, its literatures and cultures. She graduated with a Ph.D. in Romance Languages & Literatures (Spanish) from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and taught for over twenty-five years. Her curiosity and passion for learning and engaging with others in topics of interest have continued in retirement, which is why she is enthusiastic about Rest Less Events.
Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
Intermediate-Advanced Spanish Conversation Group has supplementary learning materials provided by the event host. Once you book an event, you will get access to these resources.
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)
Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
