BEC that I’m in, is Blog English Club. It is a group of bloggers where each of us is trying to improve our capabilities and comprehension in English, especially the writing skill. I knew it the first time when I was blogwalking to Mbak Nita. Further more, I also knew that this group was made by Mas Dani and Mas Ryan. So, here we have 3 founders! *standing ovation* 🙂 For the history of this group itself, you can check this out.
Why Do I Join?
You should know I was really eager to join this group. I didn’t have any consideration whether this is a huge group or a small one 😕 I just joined, plus the WA group. The first thing on my mind was: I guess this is gonna be a really good place to practice my English skill, because lately I barely have had any chances to practice it verbally or nonverbally. I learnt English almost 4 years intensively, so it will be just sad when it’s getting dull. Then, there I joined.
How was so far?
Frankly, I was amazed by the people in this group! 😀 They are sooo fun and hilarious ❤ Almost everyone in this group has never met each other before (some of them are friends from the beginning) but I have never felt like we’re talking to strangers. On the other side, those people are great learners! ⭐ I am so happy to get to know those amazing people. The four mentors are also outstanding! They give such a big help to our English comprehension for free. This "free" thing is a very noble thing I could ever think. I hope God bless them with every happiness and prosperity 🙂
Oh ya! I haven’t had any chances to blogwalk to all of the members, just some of them. Though it will be nice to know all of them, so this one is my own target: to blogwalk to each of the members, Insya Alloh… hehehe
Does it give any improvement to me?
Of course! At least it helps me to make English as a common thing in a way to communicate. By communicating in English often, it will make us easier to grope for the proper words and in a proper way. This is why to master a language, we need to practice a lot! 😎
Most of the learning session, I could be a silent reader because I try to understand the whole package. As it is a forum, so I need to scroll way up from the above. Due to my workload, sometimes I missed the learning session, too. If so, I just go to its blog and read the “English Essential”.
Do you have any expectations?
Well, even though I don’t have that much contribution to this group, I have this one dream 😛
I’ve mentioned this in the Chit-Chat Group (Oh! We have 2 WA groups by the way, BEC Learning Group and Chit-Chat Group, you can differ them by the name 😉 ). This one “grande” dream is to hold an event, some kind of workshop and gathering. There are speakers, then we learn about Formal Writing in English. By its theme, I guess the speakers could be people who work in English leading media or else. The event should be opened for public, not only the members. So, anyone can join this and know more about BEC at the same time 🙂 This may be a charged event, but it’s okay, I’d join anyway as long as I have spare time and it’s accessible.
But most of all, I just want this group’s longevity, not just a sudden hysteria. I hope all members are committed and keep the learning spirit high, though once we master it eventually.
And for the admins, well, don’t take my expectations too seriously and don’t make it as a burden as well. Your contributions so far are the best and I really thank you guys for the hard work! 🙂 *cheers* 🍸 😎
As a learning group or forum, everything went well, for me. But maybe the admins should really add up some more of the articles for the english essential part to ease members who missed the learning sessions.
Hmmm… I often wonder, what if we all met one day, would it be as merry as in the group? I’m a silent person, what about the others? 😛 LOL !
