Which is why our website is called the Effortless English CLUB. Effortless English is more than great lessons – it’s also a community of very positive and enthusiastic learners. In fact, we are very careful about membership in our community. We only accept the very best – English learners who are very positive and enthusiastic.
We monitor our club quite closely, and we have zero tolerance for the negative, insulting, or childish behavior usually seen in internet communities. On most internet forums, for example, you find a massive amount of insults and arguing. We don’t allow that. Such members are quickly and decisively eliminated from the club, and are never allowed to re-join.
Yes, this is a tough policy. But it is necessary. It can be difficult to create a great international learning club online. And I admit- I am not interested in accepting and tolerating everyone. My goal is to create an international English learning club of only the very best learners. I want the most enthusiastic, the most supportive, the most friendly, the most energetic members in the world… and that, in fact, is exactly what we have.
The members of the Effortless English Club are absolutely amazing. The level of enthusiasm and friendliness is tremendous. New members are always very happy to discover such a fun and supportive learning club. We have many super members who will answer your questions, give you learning advice, encourage you when you feel tired, and inspire you with their success.
First, we are here to support and encourage each other as learners. When learning anything, there are always times when we feel tired or have doubts. At those times, we need the support and encouragement of friendly enthusiastic people. Here, you will find wonderful members who are always willing to encourage and help you.
Second, we are here to connect in friendship, as human beings. English is a tool for communication and connection. I feel that The Effortless English Club is a family. We will always help each other when we can.... in any way we can. We are here to make true friendships. Many of our members go beyond these forums: they connect with each other by email, with Facebook, and with Twitter. They also talk to each other using Skype. We have many good friendships here.
Finally, we have a bigger mission. Unfortunately, the traditional English education industry is terrible. Most classes are boring. Worse, many students have very negative experiences in their English classes. They feel foolish, bored, frustrated, and upset.
My hope is that together, we will change English education all over the world. English learning can be fun, exciting, and very positive. English teachers should be making their students feel happy. They should be teaching their students to LOVE English... and LOVE learning.
I can't do this alone... but we all can do this together. Let's change the way the world learns English. Let's show them that learning and speaking English can be fun, easy, and exciting. Let's show them how to connect in friendship, using English. Let's show them a better way than the old terrible methods.
That is our mission - together!
As always, enjoy your English learning!
