Easy English

English Speaking Club for kids and adults was held today at Window on America Center for Future Leaders Kherson where we talked a lot about household chores and about ourselves. With the youngest visitors we learned some vocabulary related to this topic, watched some funny videos and then discussed them. And we also practiced to write and to speak in English. 

With adults and teenagers we talked about our favorite things such as place to spend a day; season; music and tvshow; time of day; person in the world etc. And for that activity we used the boardgame “Name your favorite” from “Activate: Games for learning American English.

English in Use


Do you have a person you can count on? Or is it hard as finding a needle in a haystack? Do you know any of these phrases? Yesterday the members of English Speaking Club gathered at Window on America Center for future Leaders in order to learn and improve their English. We all got to know some common phrases that are popular in the daily speech - here are some of them "24/7", "Draw the line", "Easier said than done", "Every cloud has a silver lining", "Fish out of water", "Pull yourself together", "Sick and tired", "Sleep on it", "Step up your game", "Tip of the iceberg" , "Break a leg", "Think outside the box" etc. So we all found out the meaning of them and discussed the situations in which they can be used. We were also really happy to see some visitors that joined us online and could also participate. And it is plain as day that learning English can be fun so we want you to be a part of our club.

The Countries We Live in

Yesterday Ukraine celebrated its holiday so this session of English Speaking Club Window on America Center for Future Leaders dedicated to the topic “The Countries we live in”. We started with an activity “My country” where all members of the club said one sentence about Ukraine one by one. After that we discussed our opinions about the two countries: the USA and Ukraine and then compared their lifestyles. And of course we had a chance to dream while we made up story about our perfect vacation. Overall it was a nice club where we spoke English a lot with American volunteers that helped us to improve it.
