We are a community to speak/practice/learn different languages meet new people and have fun.

Organizing an event is relatively simple if you just follow the next steps.

  1. Pick a date and time.
  2. Pick a venue if it’s a bar or restaurant that can host 6 to 15 people at least.
  3. Pick an activity or theme (People want to meet and practice English, German, or Spanish or do a fun activity)
  4. Post the event in the group with all the details. (If you are planning a bigger event. Adrian can help you by creating a banner and promoting it by email, and the social media channels)

The key to a successful gathering is to time it at least 24hrs in advance, and have someone hosting who is excited about the activity.

We have done plenty of interviews, and we discovered a confluent pain point with 3 of our interviewees from different parts of the world.

Matt Wallaert (Head of Behavioral Science frog) —New product ideas dont get validated through pilots, and feedback loops

Dexter Ligot Gordon (Co-founder Swarm) — Teams usually don't have enough feedback on their product strategy and approach.

Remy Arteaga (Executive Director at CUNY Startups) — Despite the lean startups' movement. Teams and startups have a mentality problem. And that is not engaging enough with the marketplace by the way of pilots, MVPs, validation, and feedback!

In this video, we can hear the strong convergence of point points between these 3 people regarding getting feedback for different solutions teams create.

On April 14th of 2021, I was in Tirana Albania, and underneath there is a five-story bunker of spidery hallways and over 100 rooms. Enver Hoxha, was the communist leader of Albania for over four decades. and he created these bunkers to protect his cabinet in the event of a nuclear attack, but now a mixed-use art and culture center. Quite a unique place to visit in Tirana.

In this video, I filmed inside BunkArt1, which is located on the outskirts of Tirana. It a very impressive site definitely worth visiting. Another thing to note about Albania is that now COVID restrictions are very lax, and most foreigners and tourists won't need a PCR test to get into the country.

Also, most young people speak English fluently and are very keen on talking to foreigners.
