How to Win Free English Lessons!

Win Free English lessons

If you have been into the Intrepid English Community recently, you have probably seen some intriguing, colourful badges. Well, these badges are more than just fun stickers; they are rewards for our wonderful students for making progress in English and being excellent members of the Intrepid English Community.

We want to encourage our Intrepid English learners to learn consistently because that’s when they make the most progress in English. That’s why these badges are worth points. The more engaged you are, the more points you win. And those points can be used to buy English lessons!

In this blog, I’ll guide you through the Intrepid English Badges so you can start learning and earning!

Did someone say FREE English lessons?

Absolutely! Each badge is worth a number of points which you can use to buy English lessons. The bigger your achievement is, the bigger your reward will be.

300 points = a free 30-minute lesson
600 points = a free 60-minute lesson

To redeem your points, just send us a message through the Chat Box.

Interview with Alyssa Ordu

Hello, and welcome to the Intrepid English podcast. My name is Lorraine, and today, I have a conversation for you. My friend Alyssa is a Diversity and Inclusion Consultant in London. And when I told Alyssa that we were creating a diversity and inclusion course, in the intrepid English Academy, we had a lovely conversation about why diversity and inclusion are so important. I asked her to join me on this podcast as an expert in this field, to break down these big topics so that our English learners and the listeners of this podcast can understand a little bit about what diversity and inclusion are, why they’re so important, and give you a little bit of language that you can use to increase your awareness and broaden your horizons in these essential areas.

  1. Congratulations to this system: a real system of motivation. I award Interprid the badge: Motivational Guru of the Year.????????????

  2. You really make it seem so easy with
    your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I
    I would never understand. It seems too complicated and
    very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    1. Hi Adewale, I’m sure you’ll be able to get the hang of our badge system! Try posting in our community and see if you can earn one ????
