Who wouldn't want to end the week with coffee, cake and conversation? Actually today it was coffee, cinnamon rolls and conversation, but still a nice way to end the week! On Fridays I have a group of three adults come to the cottage who want to use the English they know while enjoying some homemade cake. I really enjoy having to prepare food rather than English lessons - I still teach them new English when they are struggling to explain things with the language they already know, but I don't have to prepare themes, worksheets etc. It is really interesting to see which direction the conversations will go each week. Today's highlight was discovering that in a town close to here they serve soft-shelled turtle blood mixed with apple juice and if you drink it you get a natural high! Not exactly something that would come up in your general English conversation textbook!
