Wine Tasting

A one-hour conversation club over a glass of wine with small groups of 6-8 people is advisable after a long day of work. Unwind and join us for an early evening 'afterwork' event during the week

Taking Notes -Use a correction sheet

All errors are addressed in class and I use the board extensively to write the corrections, so students can take note. There are 4 sections on the correction sheet: Box 1: Useful Expressions Box 2: Check & correct (When I know you are translating directly). Students write down what they said and what they should have said. Box 3: New vocabulary Box 4: Pronunciation errors

What Our Students Say:
1. Did you find the conversation club or phonetics workshop useful?
Julian: I found it very interesting because I could remember some important things I had forgotten and the phonetics made me realise how important is to have a correct pronunciation.
 
Xavier: Yes, I find it useful, because I could practise speaking English and I had somebody correcting me. Also, I got to know things I didn't know, like how to ask for "peanuts" instead of "penis." :)
 
2. What was the most interesting exercise for you & why?
Julian: I liked to have the opportunity to talk for some minutes, share with people and correct mistakes I usually do. I also liked to learn new expressions.
 
Xavier: I don't know, but maybe the reading part because I realised how slowly and bad it was.
 
3. Would you like to do more workshops and why?
Julian: I'd like to do new workshops because I need to practice, learn from other students and improve my skills.
 
Xavier: I do. Because I think it will help me to improve and of course to get to know people better.
