Down with love xD

Well, this beginning of the year has been hectic. Having gone through eye-opening situations has given me the strength to move on, although these situations have not been so pleasant.
Anyway, time to go to the point! This month I start classes in a new center, yesterday was my very first day and let me tell you this place is awesome. It would be great to keep working there for a longer period, however, only time will tell. My proposal for the monthly activities of the center was:

American & British English Basics

Which word is correct: organise or organize? Center or centre? Neighbor or neighbour? What if I tell you that both are correct? Why? It is time to find it out in this social club. Having awareness of such details make us stronger English learners and understanding the basics of America & British English will take us a step forward.

Everlasting Couples: Love Fest

Love has been one of the strongest forces running our lives. From fantasy couples who have taught us what love is supposed to feel like, to our own experience… we all have our definition of romantic love. In this Social Club, we will learn how to express this feeling through practical language in some cases and poetic language in others. Be prepared to celebrate beauty, freedom, truth and love.

In-on-at… aren’t they confusing sometimes? How about possessives? When to use the verb “to be” and when “Do”? My friends, these grammar games are for you. Let’s have fun while we learn!
