A discussion on Apps at the English Language Table this September by Marcela Quintero

September's English Table


Delicious food, good conversation, amazing company, what more can you ask for?

Our English table on Thursday was lively and very informative. After catching up and hearing the summer news from old friends and new acquaintances, we shared a discovery session about the Apps we use to make life easier.

Some examples: moving around the city more easily with CITYMAPPER, doing tours in style with DETOUR, having our own personal trainer with BODBOT, spliting the check and tipping with TIPNSPLIT, paying the taxi cab seamlessly at the end of the trip with ARRO, buying and learning about wine with VIVINO, booking Broadway shows for less with TKTs, TDF or TodayTix, and many others.

Last but not least, thanks so much to our host, Diana Camacho, for her kind hospitality; at her house you always feel like you are at home.
