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.

How to Be a Good Friend?

At today's online English Speaking Club meeting of Window on America for Future Leaders center we discussed the topic of Friends and Friendship. At the beginning, we tried to characterize ourselves using the letters of our names. Then we talked about our best friends and reflected on how we first met them. After that, we named famous duos from movies and books, such as: Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, Frodo and Sam.

We also asked ourselves questions such as: What qualities should a true friend have?, What does the word friend mean to you?, and Do you think it is good idea to borrow money from a friend? At the end of the meeting, we tried something new and did some riddles! We tried to find the answers to some difficult riddles, and although difficult, it was a blast! We hope to see you next time!

Play and Learn

The motto of today's English Speaking Club of Window on America Center for Future Leaders was 'Play and Learn.' At the beginning of the meeting, we played a new Icebreaker game called "Strange Gift". Following that, we played another game "Name your Favorite", a really great board game from “Activate: Games for learning American English.” The participants not only said their favorite things, but they described them with only 3 words! To close our meeting, we played a game called "Taxi Driver" where participants role played different scenarios as taxi drivers from different countries, practicing English by small talking with the passengers! It was a blast, and we hope to see you next time!
