Plaza Voices: "We love Denver"
Conversation Tables are a wonderful way to meet other language learners, make friends, and participate in fun activities. We have groups that are learning English, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Chinese!
Our former English facilitator at Barnum is in Japan teaching English to high school students. She created a blog at http://bloghellofrom.blogspot.com for people around the world who are practicing English. A while back, our English Conversation Table participants at Barnum created this entry and posted to her blog.
Hello, We are a group of English language learners living in Denver, Colorado, in the United States. Our estimated population is 634,265. The population of our city is very diverse. In this particular group we have people from Mexico, China, and the Philippines.
In Denver, winters are long and we have snow storms. Sometimes snow covers houses, cars, and trees, and we get stuck in our houses for days. During winter, we enjoy hot soup, such as menudo and pozole, sometimes made of buffalo.
Before winter, we have a beautiful fall. The mountains covered with trees look like a mixture of yellow, brown, and green.
Denver is a source of different kinds of fruit. We have watermelons, cantaloupes, peaches, pears, cherries, and many more.
We love Denver and are happily raising our children here.
We love Coca-Cola too!
