Convoing

Ha, ha! Another word to copywright!

Last week, a fellow PCT-mate and I facilitated our first Conversation Club. For those who don’t know what those are, they are clubs that converse (;)).

No really, that’s the point of Conversation Clubs. Through Convo Clubs, PCTs get to know local youth through fun games and stimulating conversations. In addition, youth get to practice their English and we (the PCTs) get to practice our Azerbaijani.

Of course, it’s not as easy as it would sound. My PCT-mate and I barely speak Azerbaijani and let me tell you, explaining a game in broken AZ and simplified English doesn’t quite get the rules across as one would hope. Nevertheless, we had a great time and I cannot wait for our next meeting!
