Conversation Circle

October was the second month of the work of the Conversation Circle after summer break. During this period 5 meetings were held. The topic of the first one on October 2nd was “Idioms and Adjectives”, during the second meeting on October 9th members of the Club discussed theme “Food”.  “What do you like to do in autumn?” was the topic of the 3rd meeting on October 16th. It was real fun to learn how different people spent their free time during this rainy month. When the weather’s good people mostly prefer to stay outdoors, when it’s not it’s high time to visit cinemas, theatres etc. The names of the 4th and the 5th meetings of the Club held respectively on October 23rd and 30th were “Expressing likes and dislikes” and “Halloween”. During the last meeting of the month Ashley told about the history of the celebrating of Halloween and traditions used in the USA. Discussion was very intense and cheerful!

Being Brave

Welcome to English-Speaking Club. Last month we had a variety of topics discussed:
1.10 – How did I spend my holidays
8.10 – Why I learn English
15.10 – Our hobbies.
22.10 – Discussing Music
29.10 – What does it mean being brave?
What does it mean being brave? Today we tried to identify what it means being brave. In a form of conversation our participants expressed their thoughts and formulated that being brave means to speak to the public, to go to space, able to face and deal with danger, to tell someone a truth that paint you unpretty. Being brave means owning your fears. Being brave means trusting the voice inside yourself that says “you can do this” because you totally can.
What makes you feel brave? Come and speak on this and many other conversational issues!
