Last Update: April 25 2017
Every Thursday from 19:30 to 21:00, at Triskel Tavern
(c/ San Vicente Ferrer 3, 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 http://philomadrid.blogspot.com/ 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 table placed next to the Triskel's window nearest to Fuencarral street. Left of Triskel's door in San Vicente Ferrer.
If there were not possible to meet at Triskel on a given day, we will move that day to Free Way Pub just across the street from Triskel.
In Tertulia support,

Philomadrid topics (last one first):

Philosophy and language
Are different languages necessary?
Our beloved friend Trudy created this tertulia in 1994, She led it and was its soul. Also a photography lover. In her memory:
