School education on English is really a problem. Students are reciting the books all day but they do ...

Exactly!

Engage students in interesting and topical conversations in a "circle of trust". Be friendly and not judgemental.

Discuss why white American women can put on 5kg after eating a 2kg dinner.

Watch Sesame Streets.

Let students nominate a topic for discussion on ad hoc basis, don't bother researching.

45 minutes of fun, laugh, giggle and guffaw.

Books? Here you go, that's what HE thinks of it:
I've studied now Philosophy
                                    And Jurisprudence, Medicine,
                                    And even, alas! Theology
                                    All through and through with ardour keen!
                                    Here now I stand, poor fool, and see
                                    I'm just as wise as formerly.
                                    Am called a Master, even Doctor too,
                                    And now I've nearly ten years through
                                    Pulled my students by their noses to and fro
                                    And up and down, across, about,

                                    And see there's nothing we can know!
                                    That all but burns my heart right out.
...
Let the dice fly high

Anyone graduating from university should be able to speak English. How can you for example do your thesis if your English skills are close to zero?
