Como siempre, os invitamos a participar en el coloquio en inglés en el centro cívico. La idea de estos coloquios es practicar nuestro inglés con gente de diferentes niveles e intentar soltarnos. No hay requisitos ni obligaciones, solo participar en la medida que se pueda y se quiera.
Os dejamos unos enlaces más abajo para que podais preparar el coloquio y que podáis venir con una opinión formada del tema que vamos a hablar. Por este motivo todo los temas los ponemos en inglés para que tengamos los conceptos preparados en el idioma en el que vamos a hablar.
