Our principle when you study English in the USA is constantly pretty much the same: allowing students to socialize and interact out of school. Having the chance to interact with a staff member in a different kind of context is really convenient in order to practice your speaking skills of the target language. Bearing this concept in mind and that South Beach is full of amazing establishments to have fun and enjoy amazing food and drinks, this time we wanted to take our awesome students at EC Miami to a very cool spot on 218 Española Way. Along with lead teacher Gammal, students were able to have a great time together at Lost Weekend. It is possible to find different kinds of entertainment at this location. For example, billiard pool tables, an air hockey table, Foosball, and TV sports. As a matter of fact, many locals consider it as a place that isn’t a “tourist trap” or a business that will make you break your bank for a round of drinks, if you know what we are saying.
The great local atmosphere hit us all the second we stepped in, and our guys just loved it! It turned out that the soccer match for the playoff round of the Champions League between Liverpool and Atletico de Madrid was on one of the huge TV’s. As many of the students who joined us are huge soccer fans coming from Switzerland, they couldn’t have had a better time. While having a yummy basket of fries along with refreshing ice-cold beers, they saw that Liverpool ended up losing the match to an Atletico that bounced back to score three surprising goals in a row. Anyway, this was no reason to kill the mood, and they kept having fun by playing an exciting game of pool. Long story short, we all had a great time at a different spot for a change.
