What we're about

Our classes are on Zoom, we have regular conversational walks and pub visits where you can practise with native English speakers

Help for new Zoom users:

We use 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 -

and 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 the group, details of events, class etc 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....

On-line 💻 Reading Practice (Friday)

Link visible for attendees

I've not yet decided on today's article to read, when I do I'll place a link to it in the comments section below.

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.

Summer 2022
Summer Holidays schedule - means no classes just English language practise

Normally, Classes are scheduled a few days before - so login regularly to check & RSVP ....
But we're in the summer holidays now so we're all enjoying the break - but you will able to practise your English conversation, so RSVP for those events now!

From Jan 2022
I hope to have classes on Mondays & Fridays but Friday's may simply be a repeat of Monday's and is primarily aimed those who missed the Monday class due to over-subscription.

Also during Jan & onwards 2021/22
I'll be giving you the option to pay a small fee of £2 for multiple classes (or £2.35 individually). For those that pay this, if you're on the "Wait List" I will move you into the class. Classes are normally limited to just four students, so it's 'first come, first served'.
