English speaking Tuesday

Time: Tuesday, 18:00

Place: English Reading Room

DescriptionThe Tuesday English Speaking Club is mainly aimed at TSU Master’s and PhD students, researchers and professors with at least an upper-intermediate level of English proficiency. The two major goals of the Club are in fact to refine one’s knowledge of English, gaining a grasp of its nuances and multifaceted character, and to engage with a critical eye on a wide range of topics – from socio-cultural phenomena to scientific breakthroughs, from academia to history, art, literature and much more.


Moderator: Carolina Botteschi – Carolina was born in Italy. She is a first-year PhD student at the Faculty of Philology at TSU. She is passionate about the study of foreign languages and literature, fields to which she has devoted almost her entire high school and university education. She has always been fascinated by ars oratoria and words. In her spare time, she enjoys writing short stories, taking long walks surrounded by nature and practising sports. She loves travelling, thumbing through the pages of old books, wandering through libraries and being able to marvel at the skill with which both the extraordinary and the ordinary men of the past have grasped and depicted the infinite variety of the human soul and the world.
