The English Learners Book Club

Online event

Hello Everyone! Join us for another meeting of The English Learners Book Club"! This month, we will start new story, "A Very Unusual Excursion", in the book, "Short Stories in English for Beginners" by Olly Richards. You can purchase or secure a copy of the book and read the story before the meeting. But, if you do not want or are not able to do that, we will be sharing a digital copy on-screen during the meeting and will be taking turns having each participant read a short section, so we can all help each other with comprehension, pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar. The stories are rated at the A2 CEFR level, so it shouldn't be too difficult for newer learners but still be a good challenge for those who have been studying a little longer. As we finish each chapter, we will complete the chapter exercises as a group. If you do read the book beforehand, make notes of any words, phrases, grammar, etc. about which you have any questions, and we'll answer them at the meeting. The book is available in softcover or eBook format and is available in both Europe and the US at the following links: In Italy: https://www.amazon.it/Short-Stories-English-Beginners-vocabulary-ebook/dp/B0791HQSWK/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1597848906&sr=8-1 In the US: https://www.amazon.com/Short-Stories-English-Beginners-vocabulary-ebook/dp/B087Q4CB8R/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr= If you are going to purchase the book, we do recommend purchasing the Kindle version so you won't have to worry about delivery charges or delays. In Italy, the eBook is €3.99, and it is $9.99 in the US. If you have any trouble finding or purchasing it, let us know and we'll send a PDF. Hope to see you there! ************************************************************ Zoom Call Information: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89489668111 Meeting ID:[masked] Password:[masked]

Career Passion Series: Disney Songs with Federica

Online event

All: In a continuation of our career - passion - art series, Federica or Fede will share with us about her passion Disney Songs;-)! About Federica: Federica or Fede lives in Salerno and currently is a project manager for a bakery equipment retailer, even though one day she'd love to work with events and music. She is passionate about a lot of things, but mostly they are a little nerdy: music, movies, tv shows, art and books. She does it all. She also lived for four years in Finland, and if you're around her long enough, you'll probably hear some weird, almost incredible stories about her time there. It's all true; she promises! Her high-school background is in foreign languages, so she also has a thing for words, and is constantly complaining about "how it doesn't really translate well", which is basically the whole topic of this meetup! Join us for this little trip inside Federica's passions. Join Zoom Meeting https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83056627488 Meeting ID:[masked] Passcode:[masked] Tutti: In una continuazione della nostra serie su carriera - passione ed arte, Federica o Fede condividerà con noi la sua passione per le canzoni Disney ;-)! A proposito di Federica: Federica o Fede vive a Salerno e attualmente è project manager per un rivenditore di attrezzature per panifici, anche se un giorno le piacerebbe lavorare con eventi e musica. È appassionata di molte cose, ma tutte un po' nerd: musica, film, spettacoli televisivi, arte e libri. Praticamente tutto :D Ha anche vissuto per quattro anni in Finlandia, e se le stai vicino abbastanza a lungo, probabilmente ascolterai delle storie strane, quasi incredibili sul suo tempo lì. È tutto vero; lei promette! Il suo background scolastico è in lingue straniere, quindi ha anche un debole per le parole e si lamenta costantemente di "come le traduzioni non rendano bene", che è fondamentalmente l'intero argomento di questo meetup! Unisciti a noi per questo piccolo viaggio nelle passioni di Federica. Partecipa a Zoom Meeting https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83056627488 ID riunione:[masked] Codice di accesso:[masked]
