English Village Conversation Clubs

I haven’t posted about any of my adult groups for so long, but I am glad to say that they are still very much active. 🙂

The intimate conversation clubs in Barcola, Prebeneg and in Trieste city centre are going beautifully, our recent conversation topics include James Bond, hurricane Sandy, house chores, newly coined words, the Euro crisis, and even adult only airplanes.

With the festive season upon us, you can imagine what the next topics will be about.:-)


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. 🙂

A Super Conversation

Today a young man and I had a super conversation about superheroes. We began with Spider-man.


Continued with the Avengers.


And we finished off with Turi, his very own superhero creation.
