I’m sure that you have seen our new website by now. Everything looks amazing, and we know it’s a great place to learn English!

You may have noticed some exciting new features of the new Intrepid English website already. To start with, there are a few new tabs to explore in the menu at the top of every page. To find out more about these, check out this helpful video from Lorraine

Listen to this blog post on the Intrepid English Podcast here.

Community – A place to connect with teachers and other learners.

Memberships – A place to upgrade, downgrade or cancel your membership.

Groups – A place to meet other English learners and to take Group Classes.

In today’s blog post, I’m going to tell you more about these Groups!

Find Groups as a tab on our homepage.

What are Groups?

Groups are a place for learners to hang out with other English learners who are at a similar level to you. Within each Group, you can learn English, practise with each other and ask questions. The Intrepid English Teachers and fellow English students will be delighted to meet you!

You might want to join a Group based on your level. For example, if you are an advanced learner you will be in the Advanced Group. If you are currently at pre-intermediate level, you can join the Pre-intermediate Group. You’re welcome to join more than one Group if you like!

Some of the groups are about your interests. For example, we have an ‘All Things Grammar‘ group for students to discuss grammar, ask questions and learn about the rules of English.

How do I use Groups?

That’s up to you! Groups are great for lots of things.

Ask questions! If you want to check spellings or tenses, or what is the best way to say something then Groups are the place to ask these questions. The Intrepid English Teachers and Learners will be happy to help you!

Get to know teachers and other learners! You will usually be in groups with learners that are at a similar level to you. This is a great place for practising your English by speaking to other learners. There will also be at least one teacher in every Group, so you can ask them questions and get to know them.

Take group lessons. Most of the Groups have regular Group Classes on Zoom. This is an amazing chance to practise your conversational skills, and learn directly from your teacher and other students.

Look out for the monthly Group Class Timetable. This is where you can find out the times of each Group Class, the monthly themes that will be covered in the class, and you can even book your seat!

When do the Group Classes take place?

Every month, we will release a timetable. You can find this in several places on the Intrepid English website: it’s right here in the blog, in the Community and in the Groups themselves.

Which Groups should I join?

That is definitely your choice. However, our advice is to choose a Group or Groups that interest you and match your level! You can join as many as you like!

For example, if you are an intermediate student, you should join the Intermediate Group. If you are interested in improving your grammar, you should join the ‘All Things Grammar’ Group.

We also sometimes have special groups for a limited time, such as our ‘30-day Novel Writing Challenge‘ for November 2020. Make sure you check for new Groups regularly!

We’d love to hear from you, so please comment below to tell us what you think of the Groups or to tell us which Groups you have joined.
