What we're about

Help for new Zoom users:

We've just started using Zoom Software (https://zoom.us/downl (https://zoom.us/download)...) for some of our meetings. If you've not used it before this maybe helpful if you have any problems. Generally speaking Zoom works well for most people, so you shouldn't expect problems.

1. You can start a test meeting before you use it here:

https://support.zoom (https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115002262083-Joining-a-Test-Meeting)....


You will have to click the button "Join" to enter the test meeting.

2. Testing the Audio - You can do this in the above meeting, or you can also do this by clicking "Setting" then select "Audio"

3. Testing the Video -

4. Zoom Support, Video tutorials etc. is here:

If you have any other suggestions, links etc, advice that will help others; I'll add it in too.

Term Dates: https://www.southwark.ac.uk/about-us/term-dates

For the next few terms we will be based at Southwark College and (https://www.google.com/maps/search/?api=1&query=51.504974%2C-0.104819)

Ibis Hotel Blackfriars (ground floor lounge)

The College is unconnected, we just use it as a venue, but we will follow their term dates.
From the spring term 2020 onwards there will be a £2 fee to attend the class when it is held at the Ibis Hotel. Online classes will be £5 for a 2hour or a 1.5hour class. Updated-13.1.20

The group has been relatively inactive since the UK voted for Brexit in 2016, so in re-launching it details of class may change at short or no notice. Updated-4.3.20 in the light of Covid-19


I'm the new organizer of this group and I'm looking for input from members as to what you want the group to do in the future. Also I still need to "update" some of the group details so please watch this space....

All nationalities are welcome.

On-line 💻 Reading Practice (Monday 6pm)

Online event

We will spend most of our time reading, this will help you with comprehension, pronunciation and British culture.

The class is on Zoom, for the best results please download the Zoom software before the lesson starts.


You should be able to access the class on a lap-top or a tablet etc.

But you will need to be somewhere that is reasonably quiet to take part.

We will reading a story or an interesting article online.

This class will be RECORDED and I intend to make it available to class attendees via a link that will be sent afterwards.

Waiting List
If you want to try to attend the class and find that you can't because there's a Waiting List, send me £2.35 via Paypal and I will endeavour to move you from the Waiting List to the Going List - SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY, in other words I can't guarantee you will get into any particular class. Please message me on Meetup asking for my email.
~~~Friday's class is normally a repeat of Monday's~~~

Classes are scheduled a few days before - so login regularly to check & RSVP

***This is not an event just a notice for term dates & other info***

During Jan & Feb 2021
I hope to have classes on Mondays & Fridays but Friday's class will simply be a repeat of Monday's and is primarily aimed those who missed the Monday class due to over-subscription.

Also during Jan & onward 2021
I'll be giving you the option to pay a small fee of £2 (or £2.35). For those that pay this, if you're on the "WaitList" I will move you into the class. I'm trying this out so that those who want to attend regularly have a better chance of doing so.
