Global Community in English Discussion Group
Global Community in English (GCE) is a monthly discussion group designed to give non native speakers of English the chance to use their English ability to learn something new. The format is small group discussion moderated by a discussion leader. Each month we try to have a different discussion leader and a different theme. The Iraq War, racial and ethnic discrimination, religion, travel, cultural differences, international relationships, the aging population, living in a foreign country, are just some of the topics that have been discussed at past GCEs. Participation is limited to 20 people. Because of the popularity of GCE, each month's discussion often fills up quickly.
This is not a beginner's English language class. Discussion leaders will not be teaching English. The entire discussion will take place in English so beginners might find the pace too fast and the level of English used too difficult. GCE discussions are most suited to those who feel comfortable expressing themselves in English. All participants are encouraged to actively participate in the discussion in order to create an enjoyable experience for all. The subject matter tends to be somewhat difficult so we recommend participation only for those high school age and older.
