It’s the weekend! In Miami Beach, there are plenty of places to go at night whether you are interested in clubs, bars or just relaxing at a restaurant near the beach. To get ready for this weekend, our student, Selina from Switzerland has some advice for you. Selina was our English ticket winner this week, but she knows how to study English and have a good night our partying. She wrote a description of how to spend a perfect night in Miami Beach for a class assignment and we wanted to share her ideas with all of you! Most of the ideas are for ladies, but the guys can use some of the advice too. Have fun! “The most important things you need are good, friendly and funny friends. First of all, you have to choose a beautiful dress; it should be short and sexy. After you have put on the dress, do your hair and glamorous make-up. Next step is meeting your buddies for drinking one or two cocktails, laughing and just having a good time together. Then, decide with your mates which club in Miami Beach you would like to go to and, when you have chosen one, take some taxis and drive to the disco. When you are in front of the club go in and head for the bar. Next order drinks for you and your loved ones and then drink to your great time. Afterwards go dancing or stay at the bar to talk. The most important of this process is that you have a blast all night long!”
Some EC Miami students spent last night at Abraxas Lounge with Michelle trying to see how many trivia facts they knew. Abraxas Lounge, a cool bar near 4th street on Miami Beach, has trivia nights every Tuesday and EC had a few teams entered in the competition yesterday. Although the questions were difficult, one of our teams got fourth place! Questions were from many different categories and some students said they were too difficult. A few people said that the questions would have been easier for Americans. For example, one question about the NBA asked the bar participants which conferences have not yet determined which teams will be going to the basketball playoffs. It was hard enough for students to think of all of the basketball conferences! Other questions were about different topics, but it was a great challenge and a way to practice listening skills and team work while having a few beers too. The fourth place team was happy to be the winner of the EC groups, but some students claimed that that team had an advantage because one of its members was EC Miami teacher, Michelle. We don’t know if it’s true, but Michelle is originally from England, so I doubt she knew the NBA answer either! Today, we are looking forward to watching an NBA game ourselves as EC Miami attends the Miami Heat vs. Toronto game this evening. The Miami Heat team is already in the playoffs, but it will still be an exciting game. Look for pictures of the action on our Facebook page tomorrow!
