How do you know your lesson is guaranteed?
This is a session for upper-intermediate to advanced readers / speakers. Note you don't have to be an advanced *speaker* to do this course, but you should be a relatively fluent reader.We will work through one chapter or two chapters per session. We'll discuss the ideas in the book and you'll learn high frequency phrasal verbs, examples of grammar-in-use, idioms, cultural references. You'll be exposed to interesting people and places and ideas in English.I prepare discussion questions. I'll give you feedback and error correction as we discuss the ideas. You will get notes from our conversation in the form of a doc file after the session. Lots of time for your questions, and to express your opinions about the ideas in the book. ***BOOK LIST*** [All these titles are under 150 pages or less ... long enough to be interesting, but short enough that you can finish the book in a month or two]YOU HAVE TO FIND YOUR OWN COPY OF THE BOOK ONLINE OR ON KINDLE, ETC.Brian Tracy Eat That Frog: Get More of the Important Things Done Today Raj Patel The Value of NothingGuy Kawasaki EnchantmentHerman Hesse SiddharthaKahlil Gibran The ProphetPaulo Coelho The AlchemistViktor Frankl Man's Search for MeaningMachiavelli The PrinceJane Jacobs Dark Age AheadDon Miguel Ruiz The Four AgreementsI categorize this as a speaking class because we'll spend your session hour discussing the ideas and the vocabulary from the reading. This session is especially suited for people with proficiency in English who just want to keep up their language skills through regular, focused and interesting discussions and debates. I aim for 70% student talk time during these Book Club conversations.
