With the at most and gratifying sensation that this club offers the outstanding opportunity to create an English atmosphere for the English language lovers and speakers alike. At last, Santarém has what it takes to promote English speaking for students and non-students. Therefore, this spot gathers everyone eager enough to celebrate the feast that is to communicate herein and elsewhere, only in English.

Welcome to The first conversation club from Santarém - Pará. A spot where all you have to do is to speak English. Here you don't have to be from an English course, unless you speak well (accepting intermediate level speakers). Represented mainly by Escola de Inglês Prof. Flávio Serique and CCAA students, this club receives English speakers from all over the world (native or non-native) for a month meeting on fridays at 6:30 p.m.

Conversation club session - October/2010

One more time we are back to the usual session we're so fond of. This time we've received only one guest who ended up being our exclusive American visitor. Her name is Katie Ackman, she's 30 years old and is a nurse serving the Igreja da Paz with frequent visits to poor communities as a missionary. She's been here for only six months and she's already capable of speaking Portuguese quite well for such a short period. Her presence has only been accomplished with the help of our dear friend Dolores Messer who's also participated as she spent seven yars in the US and knows the crountry's, language and cultural indiosyncrasis pretty much like an American.

Second Semester - Second session

Share |

24/09/2010. Once more we've received new guests and had our usual two-hour talk from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. The guests we invited were three. The two first ones were a couple who's been living in Santarém for 18 years and are also English teachers. Their names are Dan and Brenda Caldwell and they are missionaries teaching English at Batista School twice a week with two different groups, using extracts of the Bible to start their dicussions in English. Our third guest is European, precisely from Barcelona-Spain. That's Laura, she's the newest CCAA Spanish teacher and used to work in Ireland. She lived there for 9 years and worked for the private sector of Hewlet Packard International Bank - a branch of Hewlet Packard. She's a Tax Specialist in VAT (Value Added Tax) and has also given her contribution for the evening.
