Conversation workshop in which we deal with four topics from 4 perspectives: a song, a clip from a series, a short story and a clip from a movie in relation to each topic.
Every session has a central communicative focus from which conversations, discussions and ideas emerge in a dynamic way. It’s an excellent workshop to practise speaking, listening, reading and to learn new vocabulary.
Agree to disagree
With the help of triggers such as images and questions to discuss, negotiate and come to an agreement, in this workshop you will find yourself speaking nonstop! Every session will have a new central topic, but who knows where the conversations will take us?
You will learn specific expressions that will help you describe, support an opinion, ask a question and, of course, agree and/or disagree with someone. Apart from that, each topic presented will be an excellent excuse to learn tons of words in relation to it and put them into practice as we go through them during each session.
Reading and conversation
Every session deals with a specific topic through current news stories. We will work with newspaper articles and podcasts from the most important media worldwide (The Guardian, BBC News, New York Times, etc) to analyse not only the vocabulary presented but also the content in them. Then, we’ll do oral activities (Q&A, debates, role playing) to speak and use everything analysed before.
If you’d like to improve your fluency and oral production, this workshop is for you!

Learn English with these video-based activities!
In this workshop we watch different types of audiovisual material such as adverts, documentaries, movie trailers and interviews. In each session, we focus on the vocabulary used and train our listening skills. With "pre-watching activities" we can predict and work on what to expect from the video, with "while- watching activities" we can work on our comprehension skills and with "after-watching activities" we can engage in interesting discussions to analyse in detail the topics that came up in the video.
This is the perfect workshop for those who want some challenging material and are interested in improving their skills using the latest videos available online.
