Kristian, what’s a Speaking Practice Breakout Room event?

Great question. It is an event where we split up into pairs, and topics are presented on the screen for you to discuss. It’s a way to practise English in a relaxed atmosphere, meet other community members, and have some fun at the same time.

What is the format of the session?

It will be around 30 minutes long. We will have 2 different rounds, each 15 minutes long. In each one you will be automatically put into pairs, and you’ll answer speaking practice questions.

Kristian, this sounds complicated/scary.

It’s not! It will be a low-stress and safe environment to practise your English with other friendly people. 

Kristian, I don’t feel comfortable speaking. Does everyone need to speak?

The only way to become a confident speaker is to practise. Don’t worry, everyone is a learner, there is no pressure, and it’s intended to be fun. 

Overall, Speaking Practice Breakout Rooms are the perfect solution for anyone who wants to build a powerful English speaking habit, and I really hope you’ll be able to join us!

This all sounds great, I’d like to come.

Tremendous! You can join the C1 Speaking Club here and participate once you’re a member.
