English Book Club

Active English is continuing our English Book Club for 2015. This year, we will offer a membership of 36 EUR per year for 6 book club meetings.

Every other month we will be discussing a novel together to improve our English and expand our minds. We will provide background information and discussion questions as you read, and are available for any questions you have. Then join us to discuss the book in English. We recommend you have English of level B2 or higher.

We meet Monday evenings. The next meeting will be:

Monday, October 19, 2015, 18:30
Saturday, by Ian McEwan
Sperl & Frühwirth Cafe, Kaiserfeldgasse 13, 8010 Graz
