A small cafe in Near Casa Kiwi (in El Poblado) called Tinto Tintero offers free English discussions every Tuesday night at 8pm. The topics are very diverse and can be funny, meaningful, or just intriguing.
I have been to three of them since I have been in Medellin, and I find it’s a great way to keep up my English awareness while I’m here. Also, it’s a great way to meet locals that speak enough English to communicate with me. It’s been pretty enjoyable to attend.
Last time I attended, I ran into the lead singer of Atrefacto (A band I had just seen play the day before at Altavoz). He was kind enough to speak to me after the class, and he invited me to see him play at the bar he works at. Yay, random networking.
