Identity: you are what you eat and what you consume

 During the discussion we will look at the relationship between possessions and identity, and how marketing companies use it to influence consumer behaviour and perceptions.

Why do we eat certain meats and not others? Is our identity defined by our possessions? Does it differ for men and women? In today’s society, it is easier or more difficult to attain self-identity?

How to Get Ready for IELTS

As you know, Speak Freely is holding a mock IELTS exam on November 17. So we decided to talk about the exam structure and give you a few tips on how to prepare efficiently as well as some example tasks to avoid the common mistakes. If you are not planning to pass IELTS, come anyway: you will probably learn a couple of new words (unless you are a certain Pavel Tashkinov, in this case you won't) and practice some more English.
