Friday Group Discussion: Animals and Pets

Hello and thank you for checking out the Start Gate English blog!

Every week on Monday at 3pm, Friday at 9pm and Saturday at 3pm we have a one-hour group discussion on a different topic. This class is open to any and all students, but recommended for intermediate and advanced. We have 2-4 students in each class. The teacher asks questions and discusses the answers with the students, and students can ask questions to each other (and the teacher, too!). You are welcome to bring a dictionary or ask the teacher if you need help. One lesson is 1500-2500 yen, depending on how many tickets you buy. If you are interested, please check out the website or contact me directly. If you are not available on Monday at 3pm or Tuesday at 7pm, but would like to join, please tell me your available days and times and I will be happy to set up another class for you!

The topic for Friday is animals and pets.  We’ll be talking about your favorite animals, pets you have had and having pets in general.

On to the discussion!
