SPEAK ENGLISH AT THE SPEAKING CLUB ONLINE

Practice speaking English online with people from all around the world!
The Speaking Club online is the perfect way to practice your English, to learn to USE all the English that you’ve learnt in a real life setting.

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!
