September was a good time for another SSE Katsura (スミス英会話 桂) event.
It’s been a while since we met outside our English conversation classroom to spend more time together.
And the best way to have a Summer event is to do a BBQ Party. The BBQ was another opportunity to have a friendly conversation with other students while enjoying tasty food.
My favourite was grilled beef dipped in ponzu sauce with wasabi paste. My second favourite of the night was grilled smoked sausage with mustard and brown bread. Delicous.
We also played an English conversation game this time. The game rules were very simple: without looking, one person picks a piece of paper from a bag. On the paper is an English word, for example “Autumn”. Others can see the word and start saying English words related to “Autumn”. For example: “tree leaves”, “October”, “harvest” etc. The person holding the paper has to guess what word is written on it.
This game is a quick and fun way to play with English vocabulary, without being too difficult. We played this game for only about 30 minutes but everybody came up with many English words.
After the game we continued enjoying food and chatting late into the night. Nobody hurried home.
