Hooray, ‘Conversational 2013’ has started

First Conversation of 2013

My name is Bond, James Bond

This week’s adult conversation groups revolved around a wisecracking, gun-toting, Martini-drinking, rule-breaking, brash brainy Brit, named James Bond.

We started by reading an adjective loaded text about the master spy, and then, after checking our understanding, we delved into discussion about both James Bond and our personal cinematic preferences.

It was a week of really good conversation, the only was Martini, shaken not stirred. 🙂

Barcola Conversation Club: Food Glorious Food

Hooray, our adult groups have begun, and the first topic for the Barcola conversation club to digest was ‘Food’. 🙂

We commenced with me giving a quick presentation of the subject, and here is the completely unedited start of my intro:

And then, thankfully, things got a lot better. We formed groups and begun chatting with the aid of our first prompt sheet. The conversations started out in a halting fashion, but soon began to flow.  At around the middle of our session we changed groups and continued the conversations with our second prompt sheet.

During the entire session I milled around the tables, jumping in and out of conversations, answering questions thrown at me, and generally behaving like a half mad language tutor.

Well done everybody, and be rest assured that our club will rise to even greater heights. 🙂
