What we're about

Beauty of the world lies in the diversity of its people and social connections between them. However, a lot of people struggle with mastering the English language. In order to succeed in both business and personal relationships, we all have to be properly understood. But, of course!

This is a learning-social group, open to anyone who is interested to focus on the American English skills and accent. We practice "English as a second language" (ESL). All are welcome.

..............................................................................................................................

Our meetings are at least an hour long which is plenty of time to pick up a few new words and meet new people. Our goal is to inspire you to explore and study English with more passion and dedication!
The monthly fee is not mandatory but your $1, $2 or $5 donations are welcome in order to help offset Meetup.com fees. In return, we promise to share helpful learning materials, links, printouts, camaraderie and language learning tips.
