DESCRIPTION         

Music is a universal language! For the holiday season, I was invited to Talk English Cafe where I shared music with this fantastic group of newcomers who are learning to speak English and to hone their conversational skills. We sang Christmas and holiday songs. I provided everyone with lyrics to the songs. We discussed the words and their meanings. We also practised correct pronunciation. Thanks to Chelsea for being an excellent facilitator!
