Today we’re talking about: All that EMOTIONS!

Benvenuti al Conversation Club di MPEC

When we learn a language, we truly develop a new identity. At MPEC, we know that no one can become truly fluent unless they can express their own emotions in the language they are learning. Communication becomes natural only when the emotional part of our identity feels at ease. For this reason, today we invite you to talk about how you feel in different situations and to use idiomatic phrases related to emotions. Are you ready?
