professionals from different areas share their ideas with the world. The scope of topics is really wide: technology, education, entertainment, design, business, science, global issues. They are not only informative and educational, but also thought provoking and often controversial.

I invite you to join the discussion of some of the best talks!

We meet once a week in Google hangouts in a group up to 6 people. I send you a talk to watch and tasks to do a week before the meeting. In class we discuss the issues related to the subject of the talk, and work on the new vocabulary.
