My friend Joyce Tsai forwarded this ad to me for the Brass Monkey's English Language Night tonight:


The Brass Monkey
English Language Night this Sunday

October 29, 2006

The Brass Monkey's language program continues this month! If you want to practice English or Chinese in a fun environment, this is the chance you've been waiting for. Come and meet people like you, who want to improve their language skills!

Admission is only $100, which covers the expenses of the program. (Admission is waived for native English speakers.) Reservations are not required, so come on down. You can bring friends or come alone; regardless, you're sure to have a good time.

Do you know how many dreams most people have in a night? (Scroll down to find the answer) Dreams and their interpretation date back at least as far as 3000-4000 B.C. Dream research has shown that dreams play an important role, both physically and psychologically. After Sigmund Freud revolutionized the world of dream analysis more than a century ago, a new era of dream interpretation was ushered in. Today dream analysis and interpretation continues to be a source of wonder, inspiration and even healing. One popular theory goes that dreams are a safe outlet for the subconscious mind to release repressed feelings during waking hours. When dreaming, some people solve the problems they can't solve during daytime. Do you dream every night? Do you believe in dream interpretation? Can you interpret your dreams?

What's your view on this topic? You're welcome to bring your views to share with us this Sunday. This is a perfect chance for you to learn about the topic, and at the same time, improve your English!

Show and Tell
Again this month we'll be practicing our tradition known as Show & Tell. All participants are invited to bring something from work, school, or home and show it to the rest of us. The item you bring can be anything--photos from a recent trip, a sample product from work, an old tooth even--anything at all. Whoever brings the most unusual item will win the grand prize for the evening.

In addition to all that, English Language Night provides you with a way to meet people like you, who want to practice another language. No matter if you want to practice your English, Mandarin, or Taiwanese there's almost always someone who can talk to you--without a strange accent!

English Language Night Coordinator
Our coordinator for English Night is Joyce Tsai. Joyce has an advanced degree in Education from the University of Pennsylvania and several years' experience teaching English in Taiwan. Joyce has a lively and educational program lined up for this month so you're sure to want to attend.

The co-coordinator this month is Chris Lawrence, a native speaker of English who taught in Taiwan for a number of years as well as at the University of Minnesota in the US.

"The Brass Monkey (click here for more information) provides a relaxing atmosphere and native English speakers are often there to help you speak English. Many Taiwanese used to say they don't have a chance to practice English in Taiwan. Now, this is an opportunity you shouldn't miss." -- Anonymous satisfied attendee

The answer is 4 - 7 per night. See you this Sunday!
