S04E08 - Love is in the Air


Our last meeting was so romantic!

We discussed love and dating in an age when many people think love is waning and dating doesn't make sense anymore. Surprisingly, we noticed that love can still be pursued and that dating still has its role in modern society!

Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 19th, 2018.

S04E04-07 - The English Club Seminars


For four consecutive meetings, we had the pleasure to hold The English Club Seminars!

I have had this idea for quite some time and decide to challenge the participants into doing the thing themselves this time. So, eight brave volunteers accepted the challenge and did a wonderful job! Each one had twenty minutes to do a TED-Talk-like speech on a theme they would feel familiar with, after which there would be some interaction with the other participants.

Each meeting had two presenters, and the topics and lectures were very interesting!

    November 27th, 2018
    Lenise Farias Martins - Creativity
    Alan Osterno Prado - Books Will Never Die

    December 4th, 2018
    Letícia Castro Brasil Bêco - Gravitational Waves – The biggest Discovery in the XXI Century
    Breno Henrique de Souza - When “Truth” is Untrue – Popular “Scientific” Misconceptions

    December 11th, 2018
    Leonardo Pereira de Lucena Silva - Learning While Resting: How Sleep Can Make You Smarter
    Saulo Hebert da Silva Palácio - The Engineering Behind F1

    January 29th, 2019
    Francisco Arago Santiago Angelo - Animal Farm: The Author, the Book, and its Current Relevance
    Lennon Moura Oliveira Canuto - The Hero’s Journey

I am very proud of these students' work! I think the whole thing worked out perfectly, and I wish we have more of that next Season, God willing!

Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 12th, 2018.

S04E03 - The Ungame (II)


Ever since S03E06, some participants at the English Club kept asking me to bring The Ungame again. And then I decided to bring it again today. It is impressive how such a simple game, which is not even called a game, has the power to make us have such fun! We just had a wonderful time playing it!

(If you want to read about the game, read about it from Wilipedia.)

Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 27th, 2018.

S04E01 - Bullying (SEASON PREMIERE)


Today we discussed what in my opinion is one of the most disgusting social phenomena - BULLYING!

First we tried to define bullying, then we took a look at the damage it brings to those who are bullied and to society. We also shared personal experience some of us had with bullying, and we ended up talking about solutions for the problem.

Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 13th, 2018.
