*** Note that this class will be repeated on Tuesday 14 August at a different location (Truckles) ***
The English Club will help you to improve your English language ability and knowledge of British culture in a fun and social way.
Today's class will be led by Lorella
It will be the first of a series of English Club events with a focus on pronunciation. Lorella is a specialist in phonetics, with a degree in linguistics (she can also offer private classes).
* Currently the English Club events are mixed classes - Intermediate and Advanced students are welcome *
This event will start at 7pm (please arrive by 7:30pm at the latest) and will finish between 9pm and 9:30pm. There is a charge of £6: please pay when you arrive.
Native English speakers are welcome if they wish to come along to help (they do not need to pay the charge) - in this case please write "Native English speaker" in the Comment box when you RSVP.
This event is held in the function room (or if this is not available at tables in the corner) downstairs in the cellars at a pub/wine bar called Davy's Bar & Grill (formerly known as The Bunghole). It is located at 57 High Holborn - use the side entrance in Hand Court. Davy's is on the north side of High Holborn, opposite a J D Wetherspoon pub called Penderel's Oak.
The nearest Tube stations are either Holborn or Chancery Lane (it is located between the two).
Use the side entrance in Hand Court and go down the stairs. At the bottom of the stairs turn left and then left again, and you will see the function room - if that is not available we will usually be sitting around tables in that area. Look for "London International Meetup" or "English Club" signs. In case you can't find us, you can call Lorella on 07989 333 746.
Side entrance to Davy's (57 High Holborn), in Hand Court
The bar serves wine, beer, non-alcoholic drinks, coffees and teas.
Please have at least a drink from the bar either at the start, in the interval, or when we socialise at the end, so that the management is happy for us to use the room for future English Club meetings.
Note that you must not bring food or drink with you into the venue!
Please bring a pen and some paper with you.
Nearest Tube: Chancery Lane (3 minutes' walk) or Holborn (5 minutes' walk).
The nearest bus stops on High Holborn are stops R or S (the "Brownlow Street" stop), served by buses 8, 25 or 242.
