TV Club

Do you want to improve your English speaking skills while meeting other English learners and having fun? Do you also like watching TV? Are you an intermediate English learner or higher? If so, my TV club is for you!

Each week, we watch an episode of a TV show on our own, and I give you a list of vocabulary words and expressions that might be new to you based on what we watched. Then we meet as a group to talk about it during a live discussion on Zoom. I create a list of discussion questions to guide our conversations, but I welcome students' questions as well. At the end of each session, I share general feedback to everyone on their speaking, and I share personal feedback with you as well.

Can't make it to one of the Zoom discussions? That's okay! I also run a group on Telegram just for the TV club so students can still practice their speaking skills and continue discussing the episodes after the live sessions! Membership is on a monthly basis, so you can stay for just the month, or you can opt to stay longer. The choice is yours!

**Note: Please check that you can access the TV show we're watching before signing up!**

What Students Have to Say

"I joined the TV club so that I could speak in English, at first I was afraid to talk to people I didn't know but now I am looking forward to the day of the meeting and talking with Rachel and my fellow club mates."

"I joined the TV club to improve my speaking skills. It's nice every week to watch an episode and discuss it together. Rachel is a caring and patient teacher, she is very attentive and she always makes sure that everyone talks. I can't do without her clubs anymore!"

"The most wonderful part of being a member of your TV club is the opportunity to think outside the box. The members of our community have different cultural backgrounds and life experiences. All conversations are thought provoking because of the diversity of people who participate in the discussions. I like your teaching style."

  • What exactly do I have to do in order to participate?
    You will be asked to watch (or just listen to) one video every week for 6 weeks that we will talk about during our live discussions. While you're watching the video, I'd like you to write down one new vocabulary word or expression that you heard and share it with us during the live discussion. Before we meet, you will share an audio or video recording in our Telegram group answering a question I will give you based on the video. You will then attend the live discussion, where we will talk more about the video, and then after the discussion, you are welcome to share other thoughts you had about the video in our Telegram group.
  • When, where, and how long are the weekly live discussions?
    You have the option of joining a live discussion on Mondays at 11:00am EDT (3:00pm GMT), Mondays at 2:30pm EDT (6:30pm GMT), or Fridays at 9:00am EDT (1:00pm GMT). All live discussions will take place on Zoom (you will receive the link when you sign up) and will last 45 minutes.
  • What types of videos will we be watching and how long are they?
    We will be watching videos that cover current events and other topical content. The videos are all 10-20 minutes long.
  • When do I have to answer each week's question
    Please leave an audio or video recording answer the week's question in our Telegram group the day before we meet at the latest (so if you're in one of the Monday groups, you should share your answer by Sunday, and if you're in the Friday group, you should share by Thursday).
  • How many students are in live discussions and in the Telegram group?
    The live discussions will have a minimum of 3 students per group and a maximum of 7. The Telegram group is for all participants, so it will have a maximum of 21 students.
