Spanish Circle

The Edinburgh Spanish Circle holds a varied programme of talks and social events during the Winter.. All talks will be in Spanish and we attempt to cater for all levels of language abilities. After talks there is the opportunity to practice your Spanish over refreshments. The Circle aims to cater for all levels of Spanish proficiency and a small collection of Spanish newspapers and magazines are normally available for loan. All are welcome.
