The Club goes through cycles of discussion-mingle activities (Talk) and presentation-demonstration activities (Show). Each cycle is open to students, alumni, professors, and administrative staff of the university. The strategy is to get you to come and participate. Because let’s face it, you had a better level before -when you practiced more often. Right? So don’t be shy, come with us and take your English up again. How does it work? Don’t stop, just jump to the next paragraph!
Each discussion-mingle session has a topic and a methodology that is shared with incumbents in advance through this blog, and that helps them anticipate and prepare their participation. Wait, what’s an incumbent? Is that the kind of words we will use at The Club? Yeah! Awesome, right?
For each presentation-demonstration session one of the participants has the opportunity to share their thoughts, talents, skills and expertise in a small 10-15 min. presentation, followed by questions, comments and a get together. Remember that the key here is practice, and a good presentation has to be thought, prepared and rehearsed. Do you need help, guidance, support? We figured that out too!
Professor Bibiana Martínez, Philologist, MBA, and English teacher extraordinaire will be hosting the sessions. She’ll be waiting for you so show up and give yourself the opportunity to boost your English and meet other English enthusiasts. See you there!
