Learn English Locally,

Enjoy Regular Practice
My English Club started in 2012 as an online resource of learning and teaching materials, aimed at everybody who's interested in the subject. Children, adults, students and teachers could all benefit from these pages.
I have been working non-stop on the lessons you received weekly since May 2014. When I first I sent those lessons it was for the benefit of my students at Web in Suzhou who could not come to the particular classes I shared - either they were at work, or they studied at the other Web centre in town - it didn't matter. I only thought there was value in sending those lessons and encouraging my students to subscribe to the e-zine.
Since then, many more students subscribed, from all over the world, just by occasionally finding us, or by recommendation. To all of you who are following my English Corner E-zine - I wish to congratulate you for your sustained effort in learning English and to thank you greatly for showing me I'm not making this effort for nothing. It means a lot to me, as I replied to all of you who thanked me for the privilege of receiving my online teaching sessions.
You probably noticed that I am doing this work in my free time, after I finish a full-time teaching job wherever in the world I may be teaching at the time, and you may have deducted that I don't have a family to go to after work and so many house chores as a normal family creates daily. But I have YOU through our conversation club! This year we are starting the first physical branch of My English Club, for us all to enjoy the real connection between us. To find out more, read more about our plans here.
I would suggest to those of you who are by now convinced of the value this website is offering, to invite your friends to join My English Club, make it your club! It is my vision that My English Club will provide a platform for worldwide events and interactive activities encouraging the creative spirit that’s ready to burst and hug the world. Are you in?
Packed with knowledge, published on Tuesdays.

Here we shall build some lessons to help you improve your writing skills.
Lots of lessons: cause & effect, comparisons, linking signals, relative clauses, presenting information, expressing emotions and grammar games, of course. We had more lessons on: intensifying adverbs and phrasal verbs, expressing various concepts such as addition, exception, restriction and ambiguity. Lately we started some exercises: likes/dislikes, frequency adverbs (twice), verb tenses, etc.
Learn how to build a website, by using the SBI! system - start from the basics, developing a site concept and a niche, supply and demand, learn about profitability and monetization, payment processing, register domain, website structure and content as a pyramid. Also learn about the tools I'm using to build this website. We also covered how to build traffic, working with search engines, building a good system of inbound links, using social marketing and blogs with the SBI system, how to use Socialize It and Form Build It, how to publish an e-zine and how to build a social network in your niche.
We looked at a few games by now: Countable & uncountable nouns, Free Rice, Name That Thing, Spell It, Spelloween, the Phrasal Verbs Game, Preposition Desert, The Sentence Game, Word Confusion, Word Wangling, Buzzing Bees, and The Verb Viper Game.
Be prepared to play and learn more pretty soon.
