E2Kon 4 will be about presenting infomation to the class and conducting a "talk" about a certain topic. This session will require a little preparation time prior to the start of the meeting. What you need to do is: 1) Choose a topic below; 2) Research the topic briefly so that you feel somewhat comfortable talking about the topic for about 5 minutes; 3) Write 2 questions, from your discussion, that you will pose to the group for answering.
Let's say I choose a topic and present information about my topic for 5 minutes. From the information that I presented in my lecture, I ask 2 questions and hope the group understood what I said so that they can answer them.
Now for the topics:
1. Olympic Curling
2. Lyrical Dance
3. Aki Matsuri (Japanese Fall Festival)
5. Okinawa Dance
I know that these topics aren't well known to our group and that many members may not have an interest in them, but, this is exactly why I chose them. It is important to build our knowledge and vocabulary; and to do just that, we need to delve into the unknown. Do your best to be able to give us some good information on your chosen topic and remember to do your researching in English!
How to get invited to the next E2Kon:
Write a comment below, specifying your chosen topic. That's it! Once you leave a comment, I will give you the link to the classroom.
When: Friday, October 5th, 2012
Time: 8:00 PM (Mountain Daylight Time, UTC-7:00)
Where: Classroom via e-Lecta
This session is geared to improving your spoken English, while strengthening your English presentation skills (which are good for business, career, or graduate level study).
