Aviso chatterbox club

No habrá reuniones del club de conversación del 15 al 19 de junio, ya que Kathryn estará en una conferencia en San Pablo. De todas formas, se reanudan los encuentros a partir del 26 de junio.

Por otro lado, Kathryn perdió un celular plateado en uno de los encuentros. Es de suma importancia que lo recupere, por lo tanto, si alguien lo encontró, por favor, comúniquense con ella a su mail o déjenlo en la bedelía del IESLV Sofía E. Broquen de Spangenberg. ¡Gracias!

Mensaje de Kathryn (Chatterbox club)

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are surviving the rainy weather! This is the final schedule of the Chatterbox club. We will meet beside the "merry go round" in the Parque de las Heras as long as it is not raining. If it is raining, we will meet in the entrance of the Instituto and decide from there where we will go.

Tuesday 12-14
Wednesday 16-18
Thursday 16-18

I am also attaching the outline of the general activities that we will be doing. They are fun, interactive and communicative. I am sending this out so that people can start thinking about what kinds of things they'd like to talk/learn about.

I will also be keeping a blog where I will post helpful links and things that we have shared/studied during the day. Blog URL:

Hope to see you soon!

Kathryn Curtis


Outline of general activities:

Conversation Club

Interactive/Communicative game:

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as he could,
and chuck as much wood as a woodchuck would
if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

Theme: To overcome barriers within language comprehension, cultural understanding, music, perception of the natural world and any other topic!

Hat (with ideas or thoughts of the day):

What would you like to accomplish with these conversation clubs? This club is for you, so as we continue meeting, what I will do is ask you how we are doing as a group to meet your goals.

Response/Reaction/Criticisms of lesson:
In order to assess how I am meeting your goals, I will ask you to write a 5-minute response at the end of each meeting to let me know what you liked, what you didn't like, and what other ideas/suggestions you have for the improvements of the clubs.

Inspirational Quote:
We will always close the club with some kind of inspirational quote to keep us going through the day!
