Here is a taste of some of the things we do on MyEC for those who have not yet joined this club. I grabbed a few examples from the past week! Imagine what we've done over the past few years...

WRITING CHALLENGES


Each month I post a writing challenge on my blog. In 2012, we're concentrating on common errors that I noticed writers making in 2011. This month we're practising using commas properly. Check out Robbie's model example! (The instructions for this month's challenge are here.) Writers are given a task and a model each month. They participate on their own blogs.

WRITING WITH PHOTOS

On Wednesdays some of us participate in Wordless Wednesday. A member posts a picture and friends have to write captions. The best caption is added to the photo the following Wednesday. I recently invited members to try ELTPics for images.

Our photo moderator, Nadiyah, is always posting fun Photo Challenges. This week she challenged members to create infographics as they practise using personality adjectives. She's sneaky about getting members to use English. She's an English learner herself, as all of our moderators are! I can't wait to see which tool she introduces next!  

CHAT AND GROUPS

We're working on having moderated chats in the MyEC chat room. We started a new official Chat Group and have added a few tutorials for members who want to lead these chats. We showed them how to write a summary like teachers do for #ELTChat on twitter. This week Shika hosted a #hobbychat. I can't wait to hear how it went.  

 

There was also a #musicchat this week. We're looking for the next MyEC DJMiley J has applied! Do you think she'd make a great DJ? I do! She is a star in Selma's popular Karaoke group.

REVIEWS


Our members often review the new features on our site. We recently added a Dictionary feature. It's at the bottom right corner of the screen. Some members love it, and some don't. The feedback from our members helps us choose which features to keep and which to remove or change. Hardi reviewed the Dictionary app. He has been with us since the beginning, and is our resident comedian. 

 

 As you can see, MyEC is a great place to practise English. This is why almost 50, 000 people have joined! There are plenty of activities to try. The site is full of learners and teachers from around the world. Make friends as you learn English. It's your club!

Join here.

Hi

@ Raj

My bro! You have a great idea! Making a blog like this and use it as a link to welcome new members would be very useful for them. I'll wait for that blog. I bet it would be colourful and educational too. : )

@ Miley

Hello songbird! You really did a great job. I agree with you, if we enjoy what we're doing, it would make our learning English meaningful.

@ Expector

Thanks Doc, MyEC wouldn't be complete without you. Even though you're busy, you still managed to check out blogs. 

: )

Every time I sign in, I try to read as many blog posts or comments as possible and leave comments on some of the posts or on their pages. I also feature blogs since I'm the "blog moderator".  Sometimes, if time permits, I publish a blog post about a topic which I think may interest you too. That's what I do on MyEC.

@Rajesh..and all of us will be there.

I'm with Kyuri, this blog is perfect !! well, I enjoy welcoming new members and the way I have been welcoming doesn't seem very effective. I think showing so many links to new members is not better than showing them a single blog and I had been thinking about it.

Always thanks, teacher Tara !!

Thank you very much teacher Tara for including my blog post here. I'm really humbled on what I've achieved and the things I learned as a member of EC. Cheers! : )

@Kyuri I'm glad you liked it. I hope others will write their own posts with the same subject! There are so many things to do on MyEC. Sometimes we just need to show people the way.
