Pretty much as advertised. Like speed-dating with Spanish and English speakers. Good way to meet people.

“Excellent opportunity to meet locals & expats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Once you have seen the sights, great travel is about memorable encounters with people along the way. Spanglish offers a superb chance to do find those encounters and to practice your language skills at the same time. Attendance at any given event is unpredictable and outside the control of the organizers, so the ideal equal balance of English and Spanish speakers on any given evening is a bit of a crapshoot, but generally they have been very good. My only complaint within the control of the organizers is that the bars where the events are held sometimes play music so loud as to make conversation extremely challenging.

“Spanglish is the coolest experience to mingle in Argentina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

I am Argentine, and I have been attending different events by Spanglish, in order to improve my English, but as a result I also made invaluable friends, many of them expats from many different countries, living in Argentina. Spanglish is like a big friend reunion where you get the best insights from locals. Since I am an avid traveler myself, I get to share experiences with amazing people who are themselves traveling through South America, or around the world.
I love attending the event on a regular basis on Thursday, Friday & Saturday
The organizers of the event not only are super professionals, but are the coolest people, and put lot of good passion in it. Cheers !! Alejandro Itzco (Buenos Aires)

“Fantastic Opportunity to Practice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

This was a great opportunity for someone who has just arrived in BA to get a feel for the Castellano language in a less intimidating setting than one the streets. Its also much better than sitting in a classroom learning about the language because you have the chance to have real conversations with natives and to learn about the culture the way they see it. I'm definitely going back!
