I am happy to see that there is interest in starting English conversation groups. As some of you know, I started a group in Gramado, RS, two years ago. It was based loosely on "Growing Together", a very successful club in Curitiba.
Once a club is formed, you will find native speakers. In larger cities, you may find churches with services in English. Among those in attendance, you are certain to find people interested in attending your meetings to discuss their hobbies, special interests, etc. Advertise. Look for free publicity. The Jornal de Gramado often published articles about our club. Video stores (locadoras) are great places to post announcements about meetings. Supermarkets are good too. I never had much luck with language schools. Despite the big smiles and promises, I think language schools saw a language club as a threat. One fellow told me, "The schools don't want their students to know how badly their teachers speak English." Is that possible?
If you start a club, it will happen. If you sit on your bunda waiting for someone else to do it for you, it won't.
Best of luck!
