“Our goal is to show that studying English can be fun and not just a drill. We want to create a space for the English language to be a tool to get to know interesting people and acquire new knowledge,” Klaudia Bednárová, the head of the language centre told TASR. She added they have avoided the classic conversation topics that tend to be used in textbooks. Discussion topics at the city beach will include “let us meet in cyber-space”, “double your dating”, and “bizarre places of the world”.
