Doc English Workshop 英文工作坊

February 10, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Winter Session II

Social Media is an English language exchange, class, and interactive trivia game designed for non-native English speakers. English trivia is usually very difficult for non-native speakers because it relies heavily on obscure cultural references. Social Media is different.

Each week we cover one topic in great detail. The trivia game is built into the topic powerpoint. If the topic is music, we won’t answer trivia questions like “Who wrote the song ‘Turn the Page’?”. This is too specific. Instead, we use English to make an educated guess about numbers, in a multiple choice style question. “How many songs are in the average rock album?” or “How many violins are in the average orchestra?” We can use what we learn to guess these answers correctly. Previous knowledge about the topic is not necessary. We only ask that you have intermediate English speaking and listening ability.
