A Spanish October in Brighton

Dear Invasion Members,

I can't believe October has come around so quickly! Yet, here we all are... embarking on another winter.

You will all be pleased to know that we are still going strong!

We still meet every Thursday evening at the Cornerstone from 8 pm...
Members still enjoy the Candela Quartet at More bar, on Trafalgar street on a Sunday evening and;
The Guarana bar, on Sydney Street, has become a popular meeting place for foreign language speakers...

October News:

We have a new venue for our language exchange group! We will now be meeting every Tuesday evening at the Saint James Tavern on St James Street, Brighton. We will be meeting from 8.30 pm onwards...
There is a very important reason for this!

The Spanish Invasion have now joined forces with Combination Languages!

On Tuesday, 13th October Combination Languages will be starting Beginners/ Low Intermediate Spanish Classes.

The class is conducted mainly in Spanish as this exposure to the language is the best and fastest way to learn. Don’t let this put you off though!

Instructions can always be translated and although Suzie is fluent in Spanish (having lived and worked in Andalucia and also currently living with Spanish people in Brighton) her mother tongue is English so she can ensure that she uses cognates (words similar to English) if you have any difficulties understanding!

Students practice all 4 skills; Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing with most emphasis being placed on Listening and Speaking in Spanish. The lessons are stimulating, interesting, relevant and fun!

They have a lively, interactive approach to teaching and learning and often use games, songs and authentic materials to develop your language skills. Having said that, grammar plays an obviously important role in any language and considerable time is also spent working through grammatical points.

The lessons start at 7.30 - 9 pm every Tuesday evening from the 13th October.
You can either book in advance for 4 lessons at £50 or attend lessons on a drop in basis at £15 per lesson. For more information please contact Suzie 07974 563137 or Tom 07913 802222 or go to

The classes will be held above the Saint James Tavern on St James Street, Brighton.

So, come along to the pub on Tuesday, 13th October and meet Suzie, Tom and me to find out how you can make the most out of learning a new language!

We look forward to seeing you soon!
