The Spanish Conversation Group met in late November at the home of Sherrie Epstein in Menlo Park. Five members came for general conversation. We were fortunate to have a native speaker of Spanish as our guest. Luis (a former Ph.D.in the Geophysics Department) and friend of Diane Claerbout, was happy to hear each of us read in Spanish from some excellent notes, provided by Diane, about meeting and greeting people. Luis spoke in beautiful Spanish about his travels and education in the United States and abroad. We all felt we had gained experience in speaking Spanish in an informal setting and in having Luis help us with good pronunciation. If you’d like to join our group, please contact Diane at (650) 493-1393 or firstname.lastname@example.org!
