Looking for an eye-catching name for conversation classes
Hi, I'm starting my own conversation classes for English Philology students here in Poland in two weeks and am currently working on a poster which would enable me to spread the word and attract more participants. Problem is, I need a strong, eye-catching title and "conversation classes" seems too boring, derivative and simply too long... I've been thinking of "conversatorium", however, I can hardly find such a word in the (or any, for that matter) dictionary, so I thought that maybe some of you would perhaps be able to either tell me whether there even is such a word as "conversatorium" or to perhaps suggest some other name for the classes? The idea of the classes is, by the way, that the students of English come without any preparation and talk under my supervision about whatever they want, with feedback and error correction sessions every 15 minutes or so; I'm still a student myself, so my role will be more as a facilitator than a teacher per se. I came up with the idea in order to give the students some respite from the typical, tedious lecture format. Alas, my university is more concerned with pumping into us knowledge about poststructuralism and Canadian drama rather than actually teaching us how to speak English. Don't get me wrong, I do love many of the topics we cover (such as postmodernism or some African plays dealing with aparthaid), but the priorities here are all wrong and as a member of the English Philology Club I came up with the initiative to try and change that, at least to some extent.
All ideas and suggestions will be deeply appreciated! ;)
