Summary

This will be a conversational class focused on different media. We will use different TV shows, movies, or music as a guide to discuss how our cultures are shaped and have a better idea of how to talk about our viewpoint using English.

Each month we will focus on a different series. Past topics have included the award-winning Netflix series Chef's table and American Hollywood genres.

Apart from just learning how to talk about media, we will learn how to talk about the history of different things in different parts of the world, and go into detail about what makes something special for us and individuals. 

Each course will start off with  warm-up discussion of our thoughts and opinions. Class will continue on as new vocabulary and grammar used in the episode is introduced and studied on a closer level. Throughout the course we will watch snippets of the episode and discuss them in greater detail. Near the end of the lesson students will make a presentation on something important to them. 

 

Format

The students will watch the episode before class. They may choose to take notes or to just come with their memory. We will discuss, compare and contrast our viewpoints about the episode during class. We will also watch clips from the show during class and I will explain the vocabulary and grammar more in depth to give them more conversational practice. 

What you can learn from this class

Students will learn about culture and how talk about something in a critical way.

My experience for the class

I grew up with both parents being chefs, so I have naturally been interested in how people make and consume food since I was young. I also think that the way we use food as a social tool can be studied for a lifetime. I have travelled to quite a few countries and have never refused to eat a dish, so I consider myself an adventurous eater. I think that my experience and keenness could help the students get thinking on a critical level.

Food is always a good topic to start a conversation, and Drew can help us express our views and feelings on taste, smell, cooking process of the cuisine. I wish I could join the whole session!
