We had a conversation club at Parque de los Pies Descalzos yesterday, Saturday, April 26 and it was fun.
I thought that many people were not going to show up due to the threat of rain in the clouds, but to my surprise we had quite a few people get there.
The activity was really simple yet fun. It was “speed conversation.” Everyone sat across from each other on the the metal picnic tables and everyone spoke for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes I had one side rotate to the right. So everyone got to speak to everyone by the end of the activity.
After the conversation we did the Barefoot Park tour in which you learn about the specific use of each area in the park.
At 2:00 pm we finished. After chit-chatting for a bit me and a few others went to eat Italian food at one of my favorite restaurants in el centro, Sicilia in Boca (facebook: https://www.facebook.com/siciliainboccamedellin.)
I do these Conversation Clubs for a couple reasons. First and foremost they are fun, second, I get to meet new people, third, I hate staying home on Saturdays, I’m a very active person and I do not like to just stay home and waste the day away in front of the T.V, on the internet or sleeping. I usually wake up late on Saturdays, at about 9:00 am, get ready for the Conversation Club, then go play basketball with friends at the sports complex in Belen or the covered courts in Manila.
Life is too short to be wasted. It is fun to help people practice English and Spanish for free. It feels good. I will continue to put these events on as long as people keep attending them.
