South Philly Language Exchange Program
Do you want to learn some Spanish? Would you like to meet Spanish-speaking neighbors and help them to learn English, while supporting a local Mexican restaurant and building community in Passyunk Square? Join your neighbors at one of the upcoming South Philly Language Exchange Open Table events, at 7 pm on March 12 at Fiesta Acapulco (1122 S. 9th St) and April 23 at Tamalex (1163 S. 7th St). We generally meet one Thursday evening each month at a local restaurant to socialize and chat. This event is open to everyone and is informal and fun. If you come, you can order food or not, and you will be made to feel welcome!

ESL Classes
ESL classes for Level 0 and Level 1 are underway on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Columbus Square Rec Center. Watch for information on our Facebook page and passyunksquare.org for future sessions.
