Cañas y Conversation

Wendy . Blog Publicado 14 Junio 2012

Beer and conversation go hand in hand. Why not try it in English?

.If you have English speaking friends, you're lucky. You can practice your
English anywhere. You could also go to places where there are a lot of foreigners.
You just have to start up a conversation and take it from there. If you're looking for a place you can practice your English, right here in Madrid, I have a recommendation. Not long ago I went to Carmencita Bar c/San Vicente Ferrer 51. Take the subway to Noviciado and you're almost there. Every Tuesday at 9:00 pm. everyone is encouraged to talk in English. Actually when I went in, practically everyone was speaking English including the owner Marianne, and her friend Lolly who's always there on Tuesdays at 9:00 to talk to you. There's also a Spanish guy who talks to the English speakers in Spanish if they want to practice. They told me to tell you that this is not a class. It's just conversation and a way to meet people in both languages. There's a nice atmosphere. Everyone is very friendly and makes you feel at home when you walk in the door.

So if you're ever out on a Tuesday night in the Malasaña area, cross San Bernardo and check out Carmencita Bar. Tell them Wendy sent you to "Cañas y Conversation"

That’s a really interesting idea! It’s my second year in Madrid and I didn’t know that there was a place like this. It’s a funny way to practise English here. I think it’s better speaking in English than doing a lot of exercises every day; it’s more boring… Despite you’ve some English friends and you can speak in English with them once in a while, you can go to the bar to see it and for improve your English. Moreover, you’ll meet new people and I’m sure that you’ll spend a good time.
