Thursdays' Open Tertulia in English


Sorry, no tertulia meetings are foreseen.

Every Thursday from 19:30 to 21:00, at Freeway Bar

(c/ San Vicente Ferrer 7, Metro Tribunal)


 Welcome to the Tertulia in English, just drop by and have a good time in English. No prerequisite to attend the tertulia (informal discussion group) and no need to advise in advance, just come and join us. Of course is free of charge and as in most of Pubs is up to you to order something there, even seems proper to do it.

         The tertulia is somehow self-organized; We just sit around a table and try to have a single conversation in English for the whole group. English levels range from low intermediate to medium-high  and native English speakers are especially welcome.

          The tertulia is open to discuss any topic proposed by the attendants. As default topic, it sometimes ends up taking advantage of last topics discussed at Philomadrid Pub Philosophy meetings  that some of us attend regularly, but don't even think about being afraid for the philosophic issues. No one of us has a degree in philosophy or similar, so you can imagine...

          Most of the times tertulia takes place in the tables placed next to the Bar entry door.

 Just for inspiration if needed, some of the Philomadrid topic’s
 proposed but not chosen:

     A health mind in a health body; A minimum  income for everybody; Acceptance; Accountability; Addictions;  Aesthetic appreciation; Agnosticism; Altruism; Ambitions; Anonymous  and public personality proportion in personality; Antisocial  behaviour; Are aliens among us? Are beautiful things always good?  Are economic bubbles immoral? Are gens in charge? Are human beings rational? Are our senses adequate to decide what beauty is? Are people what they eat?...


Our beloved friend Trudy created this tertulia in 1994, She led it and was its soul. Also a photography lover. In her memory:
