Learn English Locally,
Apply It Worldwide!
Enjoy Regular Practice
Having turned 50 this year (2015) I decided to end a chapter in my life and to open the door to the present one, starting with a worldwide journey - the global networking I'm planning to do, which could enrich writer and readers alike.
I'm aiming for a win-win situation: I would learn directly from the people I meet along the way, about their lifestyles and their ambitions in life and they would learn about the existence of My English Club and opportunities for global networking through communicating with other club members. You can read about my idea on this dedicated page. Please add your suggestions at any time.
So far I found a good map to share the places I've been to and those I wish to visit. You can imagine you are invited to shape this map by offering advice and inviting connections in your own communities - please comment below.

I shall also need to make the time, of course, to comment and share my photos on the Virtual Tourist website, where this map originated. Soon enough I shall also find a more practical tracking type of map to add here.
Until then, let's see where life took me on this journey so far:
Week 1: Magna Carta celebrations in Lincoln, England, U.K.
Week 2: Contemporary fairy tales from Denmark
Chinese New Year in London (February 2016)
Packed with knowledge, published on Tuesdays.
