Discussion Den

 

Come and join us in the Discussion Den!

Interact with other learners and use vocabulary from a variety of subject areas! This is key to progressing from being a competent speaker to being a fluent one.

Discussion Den is an opportunity to improve your fluency by talking with other higher-level learners while being guided by an experienced native-level teacher. Each week the class is based around a different topic so you will be able to expand your vocabulary. We will also touch on conversation techniques such as the use of functional language and discourse markers. A summary of each session, including key structures and vocabulary, is sent out after each class, so you can focus on your conversation skills without having to take notes.

Let’s start with these topics, and tailor them based on ideas from the groups:

  • Week 1 Languages: Exploring "What’s the best way to learn a language?"
  • Week 2 Lifestyle: Exploring "How can we share our living space happily?"
  • Week 3 Technology
  • Week 4 Health and fitness
  • Week 5 Environment
  • Week 6 Art
  • Week 7 Working life
  • Week 8 Family

Practicalities:

Discussion Den (60mins) occurs once a week on Wednesdays, starting on 6th May, 17.30-18.30. The discussion will take place online (in a Zoom meeting). You can register to attend three (3) discussion dens at a time (member price is 165€; non-member price is 205€). Once you have registered and paid, you will be sent a link to the meeting, and the meeting password, and then you are ready to join us in the Discussion Den!

Blake will host our first Discussion Den, then Henry takes on the next. These two experienced native-level teachers will alternate hosting the Discussion Dens throughout the spring.
