If you have been into the Intrepid English Community recently, you have probably seen some intriguing colorful 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 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.
Redeem 300 points for a free 30-minute lesson with any Intrepid English Teacher. For every 600 points you earn, you can get a free 60-minute lesson. To redeem your points, just send us a message through the Chat Box.
