Welcome to Walk the Talk

What is Walk the Talk?

'Walk the talk' is a walking group for non native English speaking adults to practise their English.  Topics will be chosen for each walk and you will be given a language sheet with some ideas to help you with conversation about that topic.  Walks are 100% English!  Topics will be a B1/B2 level (you can check your level here).  The walks are aimed at B1/B2 levels but any level is welcome.

"You can talk the talk, can you walk the talk'' (Idiom)

Why walk and talk?

Basically to get out of the classroom, away from text books and whiteboards and just practise all the English you have been learning.  It is also really good for you, mind and body. Look here for lots of reasons why.

Who is the walk leader?

Cat - a qualified and experienced English teacher and lover of the outdoors, in particular walking!

What do we do?

Meet new people, walk and talk in English.  Simple!

In more detail:

9.30 - 9.45   Pre walk meeting - Meet at the Brunel Centre, get to know the group, new walkers fill in a pre walk form, quick discussion of topic of the walk

9.45 - 11.00 Walk and talk (the whole walk will be in English)

After the walk you will be able to look at this blog where I will record new vocabulary discussed on the walk.

When is it?                                                                

There will be an organised walk every last Friday and Saturday of each month starting at 9.30am from the Brunel Centre, Calle Miguel Servet.

How do I join the group?

You do not need to register, just come along!

How much is it?

5 euros per person per walk

Do I need to be really fit?

We will be walking about 6km each walk so you need to have an average level of fitness.  The routes are chosen to be in quiet areas, with nature so that walking and talking will be a comfortable experience
