How to Get the Most out of EC's Community


I received a great question today from a new MyEC member:
"How can I join this community?"

Community is so important in life. When you feel like you are part of something, you thrive. To thrive means to live well and grow. It is not enough to join a club such as MyEC. To become part of the community you must greet, meet, participate, and support one another. This is true for learners and teachers.

Here are 25 ways to become part of's growing community:

1. Welcome at least one new MyEC member every time you log in.
2. Add a new friend each day. (Please include a short note!)
3. Leave a comment on someone's blog every day! No blog should be left behind.:(
4. Join a group. Introduce yourself to group members.
5. Get to know about 5-10 members more closely. Consider these people your OBF's (online best friends). Find learning partners here!
6. Add a few photos and describe them.
7. Comment on one photo or video each day.
8. Write one blog post a week. Share it. (Don't know what to blog? Check here!)
9. Take the monthly writing challenges.
10. Play the monthly games.
11. Join chat for a few minutes each time you log in to MyEC. Or chat here on EC.
12. Read ESL Magazine and leave a comment.
13. Use EC's forums.
14. Discuss the Monthly News with other learners.
15. Follow EnglishClub on Twitter. Teachers can follow too.
16. Start a new group based on your interests or needs.
17.Record and upload an audio introduction to your music player.
18. Invite a few people you know in real life to join MyEC. (students, colleagues, family members)
19. Ask for advice from teachers or advanced learners.
20. Offer advice to beginners or those who ask.
21. Share links to your favourite EC resources, articles, tips with other learners.
22. Become a Facebook Fan of EnglishClub, MyEC, or
