The Big Word Game

A game that broadens your horizons, boosts your vocabulary, improves your English in general, gets you new friends and topics to discuss and is fun to play? Here you go, take The Big Word Game. Don't lose it!

Some Latin and Greek that you might want to learn

As you probably know, modern scientific terminology is largely based on borrowings from ancient Latin and Greek. Words of Latin and Greek origin, when encountered in English texts, could lead to confusion in terms of pronunciation and grammar. In this short presentation we will address some major irregularities of Latin and Greek words in English texts, speak a bit about grammar of ancient languages and play a hat game of scientific terminology if time permits.

And remember: you should learn Latin, because in Hell nobody's going to talk to you in English.

The World of 2100: Your Predictions

It's around the time that Marty McFly traveled to now, and just several months left before we start flying hoverboards and magnify food on a regular basis (or was that a different film?). Or... do we? It doesn't matter whether your predictions are accurate or not; let's just share our views on how life will look like 85 years from now. You're a part of a futurologist team, and you are to consult your colleagues and present a forecast.

The Great Language Game

This is not a presentation about linguistics, although knowing something about languages might help you be more successful than others. This is not strictly speaking a game either. This is more of a competition in the useless skill of defining the language being spoken, which seems even more useless than that in the middle of nowhere, Chelyabinsk, Russia. But still, it's fun. Come and try it!

The Halloween Quest

Are you ready for a long and scary journey through the winter park? On your way, you will have to solve all sorts of enigmae, do challenging tasks, and experience real fear... but you'll have a team to rely on, and at the end, a nice and warm cup of tea will be waiting for you. Sounds like fun? Let's play the game then...

ATTENTION: the quest is a game of intellect and physical skill. A part of it takes place in the park, and the weather is most probably going to be cold and wet, so please consider putting on some warm but comfortable clothes and maybe a change in case you might get wet. A cell phone is helpful, too. Please don't be late, since the teams are going to start moving shortly after 7 pm.

Electronics

Have you ever wondered about what is happening inside electronic devices? Well, probably you always think about them as about black boxes with limited functionality. Or maybe you don't think about them at all, until they break down...

In this presentation, I will tell you about the basics of digital components, and at the end of it, you will try to create a simple device all by yourself.

Taboo

Here is a word for you, try to explain it to your team in other words so that they say it. Too easy? It is, now try and explain it without using these obvious associations.This is where it gets tricky: explain 'pilot' without saying 'fly', '(air)plane', 'airport' or 'jet', and be quick, because your time is ticking out!

This game is fun, suitable for everyone starting from the Intermediate level, and it does wonders for your speaking skills. Don't miss it!
