Presentation contest

Have you noticed that some persentations need to be made out of nothing in just about 5 minutes? And they are still so good! In another case, your presentation is being made in a company of friends so no extra officialism. Anyway, I suggest you train both of these qualities during the meeting. Make sure you're in a good mood and ready for action. )

Pro and Contra

This is a game for everybody who wants to start speaking English, start speaking English better, and even for those who are sure they speak an excellent English already, because in this game you will need all the English that you have. In short, you are given a statement to stand for — or against — and an opponent who will fight you to the best of his abilities. Come and make a breakthrough!

Linguistic archaeology session

Tocharian AHave you ever wanted to be the one decyphering ancient scripts, figuring out what the turns of speech mean that were invented thousands of years ago? As for me, this is really exciting. During this period, we will solve some problems that are all about exotic languages (you don't really need language to solve them, though, but a great deal of logic and attention), and then discuss them.

Here is a sample task for you:

  1. The most famous words in Pig Latin are ixnay, amscray and upidstray, meaning respectively 'nix', 'scram' and 'stupid' in English. Another interesting word is 'eggway', which means simply an egg. Translate the following phrase into Pig Latin:

    'I am from Russia'.

    (When you're done, go to http://www.piglatin.org/ and check your answer. If you liked it, come and join us!)

Making decisions: it's all about context

We'll discuss and then play a game of what decisions we make in different cases. Same situation, different context, different decisions. The most irrational ways to make decisions. We'll see if there are any of us who make decisions basing on imagination of our future self. Present self versus Future self.
