Improve our English speaking skills

Hello everybody! It's definitely not a secret that every Friday strictly at 5 pm we gather to discuss interesting topics and improve our English speaking skills. But last Friday there was something new. We had so many people so we had to divide all of them into two groups😉 One was for Beginners and another one for more advanced speakers. And I can assure you, that everyone left our speaking cub in the amazing mood and with a lot of experience. And we are looking forward to you to come to our Speaking Club next Friday as always at 5 pm. And there will be again two groups. So if you are still afraid of speaking English, choose the Beginners' group. With our Clubs you'll forget such words as "language barrier"))
