Основная идея покатушки - разговариваем только на английском языке.

Все знают, о такой штуке, как языковой барьер. Это когда у вас и словарный запас есть, и знания какие-то. А разговариать на языке не получается. Обычно самое сложное - это начать разговаривать. Именно поэтому мне так понравилась идея Джона (jlr) о покатушках для преодоления языкового барьера.

Назвать решили по аналогии с ЧЖП и ЧМП: Чисто Англоязычная Покатушка - ЧАП-1.

Первый раз будет экспериментальный: попробуем, посмотрим что получится. В процессе покатушки стараемся отбросить все стеснения, боязни, языковые комплексы и пробуем разговаривать на английском языке. Даже на очень плохом английском языке. Поверьте, главное начать, и дальше всё станет становиться всё легче и легче. "Языковой барьер" потому и называют барьером, что через него надо перепрыгнуть. Ну а мы перепрыгивать будем на велосипедах Smile В общем вполне допускается неловкое э-э-э-кание, подбор слов, вопросы о том, как сказать что-то правильно и т.п. Желающие могут взять с собой словари (или закачать в телефоны).

Прогонять, конечно, никого не будем. Но большая просьба: свести использование русского языка при общении - к минимуму Smile

Итак:

Meeting point is Olympic Counter near the Palace of Sports at Nemiga (link) at 19:00. Then we will cycle to Minsk Sea to a small picnic. Food and drinks can be bought at fuel station near Minsk-Arena.

The weather forecast for Tuesday is good enough. But we recommend to have some warmer clothes with you if you dont want to become an easy food for mosquitos. And nobody knows how many will go on our picnic.

John (aka jlr) will be our "language referee" as a native speaker. He is always open for any language questions, interesting phrases, discussions and so on. And there is Andrew, a doctor from Great Britain, who we hope is going to join us in this ride.

Anyway ЧАП-1 is an experimental ride. Will see if it is interesting for VELOBY.NET Smile

Personal Jesus's picture

#

Great idea! Maybe the only way to be sure you won't meet a firefighter-girl on the way...

tshshh....

Infantile's picture

#

Personal Jesus, You are squabbler.

Personal Jesus's picture

#

oh really?! I'm just trying to keep the rows clear.

aerf's picture

#

maybe u would prefer me not going either?

Personal Jesus's picture

#

why do you think i should?

aerf's picture

#

asking just in case.
maybe u do not like both of us ))

Personal Jesus's picture

i still don't know don't you

i still don't know you, don't you remember? And actually it's not a question of dislike or something. "The roof is on fire and let motherfucker burn" - that's my tuesday's anthem.

aerf's picture

#

Mad's picture

#

I want...

Infantile's picture

#

excellent idea, I will arrive Smile

aerf's picture

#

Infantile's picture

^^)

Maybe, depends on weather, probably

aerf's picture

#

oh come on! the water is magnificent without any weather )))

Personal Jesus's picture

#

How we're going to get the boat at 11?

aerf's picture

#

i meant swimming, not boating))
maybe an extra one, when u get back to town

Personal Jesus's picture

#

sorry. was thinkin' about another day, another party. No boat here, of course...

gae4ka's picture

#

Je parle francaise...
excuser moi, s'il vous plait. (В смысле sorry)

Могу молчать на английском (RoGeR +1)

vadim OVC's picture

#

Nice idea, its smt. interesting and new. I will come.

Letizia's picture

#

I have to prepare for my trip 30 June, but i'll try to be! Smile

#

You don't need to try to be as you already are, but you may need to do an attempt to join this event Wink

Helga's picture

#

Wonderful idea! I will try to participate Smile

kompas's picture

#

Personal Jesus once again attempt to break women's hearts. but in the English style. funny.

Personal Jesus's picture

#

I'm so glad i've managed to bring you some fun in your sour times, my diar...
Anyway, womens' hearts are so precious and fragile things... They need special handling. This is not for me, I'd better race my bike.

#

I want to join to this ride

#

I'd really like to join but I suppose I can't as it's quite probable that I have to be somewhat far away from my bicycle that evening.

milavitsa's picture

#

It is excellent idea! I will join cheerfully!

kompas's picture

#

ciclismo non contribuisce al riavvicinamento velosoobschestva. che puzza di snobismo e. Mi dispiace non ho intenzione.

MiSHuTka's picture

#

E chi impedisce organizzare pokatushki in italiano?

Hunter's picture

#

Если успею, то вполне возможно, что это будет и моя первая покатушка с вами в этом сезоне Smile

#

It'll be very interesting!

The weather forecast for Tuesday is good enough?

#

Today I was at the Children's Home where the British medics are working (Дом-интернат для детей-инвалидов с особенностями психофизического развития в Новинках).
The girls said that they really enjoyed the trip and that it was a high point of their stay in Minsk.

They are working here treating and caring for severely disabled children. The program is called SKIP Cardiff [Students for Kids International Projects].

MiSHuTka's picture

#

"high point of their stay in Minsk"

wow!

#

It was magnificent Smile

MiSHuTka's picture

Thank you!

Thank you guys!

It was an amazing ride. I enjoyed every single moment of it.
I'm happy that VELOBY.NET likes an idea of Pure English Speaking Rides. Next time we will try to use little less russian in conversations Wink

Special thanks to girls from Great Britain! You've made this ride even more interesting.
