We had a special edition of our Members-only Icebreaker session on Wednesday, bringing curious minds together with curious objects in a “show & tell” session. Here’s how it went, and some of the unusual objects that were "showed and told".

My favourite aspect of Leonardo English is meeting the curious minds who are part of our community, and it’s for this reason that I always look forward to our monthly “Icebreaker” sessions.

This month, to do something a little special, we had a  “Show & Tell” session, where the homework was to bring five “curious objects” in these categories:

  • The smallest object in your house
  • ​The most unusual object in your house
  • ​Your least favourite object in your house
  • ​The best thing you have bought this year
  • ​Something in your kitchen that you don’t think you will ever eat

When you bring curious people together from a wide variety of different countries, you have a lot of fun seeing what they have come up with, and yesterday evening’s “show & tell” objects included everything from a miniature instrument to a garlic press, a mystery key to a strange rock, cockroaches to a past-its-sell-by-date bottle of children’s cough syrup.

Unfortunately we didn’t get a group photo this time 🤦!

I'm looking forward to the next one already!


If you're a member of Leonardo English, look out for the announcement about the next session, and I hope to see you there.

If you're not yet a member of Leonardo English, and you are ready to improve your English in a more interesting way, then I'd love to welcome you as a member: Become a member of Leonardo English.
