How often do you visit Starbucks?
Lately, I have been going there at least 2 or 3 days out of the week.
shhh....don't tell anyone, but I actually "teach" English conversation there. I really wouldn't call what I do teaching though. Though my students seem to think I am teaching them, so I guess I am. Actually, at Starbucks, you can see all kinds of foreigners teaching the Japanese some language or learning Japanese from them.
It sometimes gets a bit loud with the grinders and commotion. But I think the BGN(background noise) helps my students feel relaxed enough to speak out loud.
I usually try to go an hour before our lessons. Sometimes it can get crowded, so the reason I go early is to save a table.
I buy myself something to drink and a snack. Bring a book or just people-watch. I've noticed that a lot of businessmen actually hold meetings there.
Recently they came out with two different mixed nut snacks.
The one with the pink label was a blend of cashew, pistachio, almond, blueberry & cranberry.
The green label was a blend of pistachio and pumpkin seeds.
I enjoyed the pink label snack because there was more flavors and crunch than the contents of the green label.
Do you have a favorite food & drink item at your Starbucks?
Hope you have a great weekend!
