English Book Club - Club de lectura para gente con un nivel de ingles intermedio

¿Quieres practicar tu ingles?
¿Te gusta leer?

El English Book Club es un club de lectura para gente con un nivel de ingles intermedio donde practicamos ingles a través de la literatura y con una profesora de ingles. Cada dos semanas leemos una nueva historia corta o parte de una novela y la comentaremos juntos en un grupo pequeño. Podrás hablar y escuchar, aprenderás vocabulario y gramática nueva en una manera divertida con otra gente de tu nivel.

El grupo esta limitado a 5 personas. Si hay una lista de espera podremos formar otro grupo durante la misma semana.


Do you want to practice your English?
Do you like to read?

Join the English Book Club! It's a book club for people with an intermediate level of English where we practice through reading and talking about literature. The group is organized by an English teacher. We'll meet every two weeks and talk about the short story or part of a novel that we've read. The group is small and you'll have the chance to speak, listen, learn vocabulary and grammar, all in a fun atmosphere with people who have a similar level.

The group is limited to 5 people. If a waiting list forms, we can have another meeting in the same week for those on the waiting list.



It looks like it might rain on Monday, in which case the park will not be a fun place to sit on the grass. So, to make things simple and so no one gets confused about how much rain is too much rain :), we will definitely meet at the café in La Central. CALLE MALLORCA 237

    Hello, everyone! I haven't been to the book club in way too long, and looking around I see that now there are sort of 2 meetings happening in parallel? Is that right? Oh, and the price used to be 2€, any idea why now it's 5€? Thanks, hope to join you on Monday!

      Hi Monica, thanks for your note. This particular meetup is for people with an intermediate level of English so they can practice and learn. It's different than the larger meetup. This group is no more than 5 people and we read a short story. It's part book club, part English lesson. There's also a third meetup happening for Spanish language literature. The bigger groups are still 2€, and this is €5 because I prepare it like a class. I hope that clears things up. Looking forward to seeing you at one of the meetup a soon! ~Miriam

      Hi Miriam, thanks a lot for your reply. Ok, then I might have missed when these changes were announced. I'll see you soon at the larger English book club.
