SPEAKING CLUB ONLINE

The Speaking Club online is the perfect way to practice conversation in English and other languages.

How does it work?

The Speaking Club is a meeting online where people from different countries come together to practice speaking in English.

There are only two rules in the Speaking Club: 
1. Be nice! – it is not a competition, everybody is here just to practice English 🙂 
2. English only! – no other language is allowed.

Alright, here is how it works step by step:

1. Watch the short video before the meeting.
This is the topic for the speaking club, you can also take a quick look at the questions, but no need to prepare.

2. Join the meeting on Zoom (Zoom is a free video-conferencing software like Skype).
The meeting will last 1 hour.

3. The organizer will put you in a mini group of 3 people to start the first part.
This will last 15-20 minutes. There will be 3 parts in one hour.

4. Have fun!

If it still sounds complicated, don’t worry! I will be there to guide you in the beginning.
Send me a message and let’s arrange a meeting on Zoom!

Anyone from any country can join. Your English level should be minimum Intermediate – we will check your English during our one on one meeting on Zoom.

You can Register here, and then you will need to have a quick online meeting to check your microphone/webcam are working and your language level is sufficient.

No, we don’t use Skype. We use Zoom, it’s a free video-conferencing software like Skype but it’s a little better for groups. You don’t need to create an account on Zoom. Just install it on your laptop and join a meeting.

The first time is completely free, with no obligations – just come and try for fun! 
If you wish to continue, the price is as low as 4 USD per hour*. 

*The Speaking Club is completely free for native speakers!
