Group Discussion: Home

Hey everybody!

First, an announcement: We no longer have a Tuesday evening class, but we now have a Saturday afternoon one at 3pm, every week (except national holidays)!

This week (September 6th) the topic will be children.  The following week (September 8th and 13th) the topic will be homes!

We will start the discussion with one or two beginner questions, and then one or two intermediate questions, and with the rest of the time we will ask the advanced questions!

If you are a student of mine, I hope to see you at one of the discussion groups. If anybody (student or not) has any questions about this blog, please let me know: Post a comment here, find me on twitter, or email me through my website. Thanks!
