Last Advanced Class...

After 6 weeks of Advanced Classes, we had our "graduation" tonight. We decided to have 6 weeks of classes, not "Club" and at the end to give an actual Certificate. 8 students out of the 15 that started, came each week and received their "Certificates". Over the 6 weeks, we have worked through a lot of good stuff: from discussions about the Chilean miners, to blonde jokes, and similes and idioms... we also played some fun games and just generally found ways that we could have fun while talking in English! David and Eliska have been faithful helpers, and it has been a really great group, as the below photo shows!!!
This group was a trial run to see how this format will work in the future, and it has shown to be successful. With the English Club I was never sure how many people would show up, and it made it hard to plan. With the classes, I knew that I would have a nice group of people and so was able to plan a lot better, and have more interesting activities... at least I hope so! We also did some of the fun games and activities that we did at the Club: "lateral thinking", for instance, is a firm favourite... I look forward to starting up another Advanced Class next year!
