TED Course / Inspiring English Conversation

What is TED?
TED is a non-profit organisation (www.ted.com) based on the slogan Ideas Worth Spreading. The world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers give short talks (under 18 minutes) based on topics such as technology, design, entertainment, philosophy, business, economics, education, medicine, art and much more. The talks are filmed and free for the world to watch online. (Click on Ted talks in the menu for a list of my favorite talks).
How can TED Course help improve my English?
Listening to great speakers online, reading the transcripts, speaking and exchanging ideas with others is an interesting, effective and often an inspiring way to improve your English.
How does it work?
Each week the class chooses the topic for the following week. You prepare at home by watching a TED talk online. In class you should be ready to discuss, defend, reinforce or even change your opinion! The last 10 or 15 minutes will be used to list difficult or new words and work on new phrases and structure. Perfection is overrated; communicating your ideas well is the goal!
