5 o-Clock Break ー 井戸端英会
Chaque semaine le mercredi, dimanche
Take a break for a phrase or two @ Restaurant Fuji (Hosp. cafeteria 職員食堂). This format/venue is for busy medical staff who need frequent spontaneous English language contact. Arrive on time. Leave freely. The first 5 minutes is listening practice using a Ted talk - w/transcript print-out. I will supply earphones with new or sterilized covers, or bring your own (0.25m stereo plug. Not USB). We will discuss the Ted Talk, but transition to free conversation. Bring ¥200 to cover Meetup subscription costs. RSVP before 11:59 AM. Consider purchase of drink or other food but arrive early to order. You do not have to leave at 5:30PM, but I might. The cafeteria closes at 6PM Sunday and 6:30PM weekdays. Find our Meetup table by looking for the only table in the room (probably) with a white Caucasian American. We will start with Sunday and Wednesday sessions and add sessions to meet demand. If you or someone you know needs a different time slot, please advise. Can consider lunch-time (Sundays) in this venue. Need a different venue for later evening sessions.
