Conversation partners sought
- Next week at 13.30 GMT I am starting an 8 week course (which will be
interrupted by Easter and other events) of English for my colleagues.
It will be a small group and extremely mixed from beginners to
advanced. I have therefore decided to divide the group in 2 and set
one half some recording tasks while I interact with the other half
and vice versa half way through the session.
For the more advanced half who are interested in presentation,
negotiation and project interactions I thought it would be a good
idea for them to prepare a series of recorded artefacts which could
be added to our institution website to explain who we are to foreign
visitors (text, photos with oral commentary,PPT or video). It would
be nice if I could also set up a few live chats where this small
group of 3 or 4 people could speak with non-native English speakers
about how to reach people in this way, what works and why and so on.
I am willing to be flexible on the topic though. If there is anyone
out there who has a similar small group or just an individual who
could use maybe Flashmeeting or Horizon then I would be grateful to
hear from you off list. The meetings do not have to start straight
away next week.
I work in a small adult education institution offering training in
IT, language, accounting, teambuilding and project management.
