English Conversation Group

Fireplace room- Community Center Building

Join this group to talk with our volunteers, Grandma Gloria and Uncle Warren!

Come to the Fireplace Room to meet with meet new friends, share stories in English and listen to others’ stories. Enjoy coffee or tea and treats. Just come, listen and talk in English! It’s FREE! All residents are welcome, even those who already speak English.

For the next 13 weeks, each session of the group will have a foundational focus that one can prepare mentally or come equipped with applicable vocabulary or phrases. No preparation is required and the group may stray from the topic; yet, this is a wonderful way to incorporate new words, expand your knowledge of phrases and grammar, as well as measure how far you have improved on the topic!

Week Six (7/10): Movies

  1. What is your favorite movie? Why? What happens in the movie? Do you like/identify with any characters in the movie?
  2. What is your favorite genre/type of movie? What is your least favorite?
  3. Have you seen any new movies recently?
    1. CTC had free movie night on June 2nd and showed COCO (a coming of age animated movie following a young, aspiring musician named Miguel who is confronted with his family's ancestral ban on music and enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer.) This would be a good speaking point for any residents that attended the movie.
