Coronavirus and the story behind EnglishFest

Coronavirus and the story behind EnglishFest

With this coronavirus thing, we have all been forced to re-think how we do things.

And I want to share a story with you, about something that just happened in the Speak English with Christina community.

— Vocabulary tips —
(Look for the words with a “ * ” ):

  • Got out = were released, were allowed to leave
  • Social distancing = staying 6-10 feet (1-2 meters) apart, to avoid passing a virus to someone
  • workouts = sports sessions

As you know, I live in France. We went into confinement on March 17. We got out* yesterday, May 11. Woohoo! I was sooooooo happy to see my coworkers again (from a distance of 6 feet, of course!)

But during my confinement, something amazing happened, thanks to you guys, the Speak English with Christina community.

That was EnglishFest: 110 live events, workouts* in English, journaling workshops, DIY videos, and even Zoom karaoke in English!

We came together, shared fun times, made new friends (despite social distancing*), we even sang and danced in English.
Together, we lived each day–a little–in English.

None of it was planned in advance, but we knew that we had to do something to lift your spirits, bring you together, and hopefully, find some joy in these crazy times.

Like I said, this situation has forced us all to think a bit differently…

So I want to ask you:
What would you like to see in the future, at Speak English with Christina?

If you imagine the PERFECT program for improving your English, what does it include?

Share your ideas with me in the comments below! I can’t wait to read them!!

Take care of yourself,
Christina
