CONFIDENT WOMEN COMMUNITY
Where women come together and flourish.
Join a community of women with shared goals for support, connection, and growth on your English confidence journey.
Inside the Confident Women Community, women like you come together to support one another, connect through meaningful conversation, and grow through successful English habits and guidance.
The English confidence journey is hard. But you don’t have to do it alone.
Fear and frustration. Doubts about your progress. Uncertainty about what to practice.
Loneliness when you can’t communicate. Feeling discouraged.
Those struggles in the English confidence and fluency journey are real.
Even more so if you’re naturally shy and introverted.
Speaking to others can feel vulnerable and scary. Even when practicing.
Confident Women Community
There’s power when women join together.
Inside the Confident Women Community, you’ll find
- Support in building a meaningful English practice with habits that lead to success and with clarity on what to practice.
- Connection to like-minded women with shared English goals for conversation and practice in a safe, supportive environment.
- Opportunities to grow together in English confidence and fluency so that you are empowered to fully express yourself in English.
We want to join the journey with you, speed up your progress, and have fun along the way.
At Speak Confident English, our mission is to empower every woman to get the confidence she wants for her life and work in English — no matter where she was born, where she lives now, or how shy or stuck she feels.
Creating the Confident Women Community brings together women from around the world to do just that.
Receive Guided Support on Your English Journey
Gain clarity on what to practice and how to build English habits that stick so you’re certain of making progress. Our 14-day roadmaps make it easy with a step-by-step path to help you gain confidence in your English conversation skills with new topics and vocabulary every month.
Receive guidance on your practice from Speak Confident English Fluency Coaches inside our live workshops and speaking challenges.
By working together, we want to help you take control of your progress.
Connect in an Immersive English Environment
For intermediate to advanced level speakers, our private members-only platform makes it easy to focus on your English practice in an entirely English-focused community.
That means daily opportunities to speak, read, write, and listen in English so you can make progress, no matter what your schedule might be.
At every step, you can choose how much or how little you want to participate. We know life is busy, so we designed a customizable, flexible immersive experience.
Grow Your Confidence through Conversation
Growth and confidence happen when you combine real-life practice with support.
Inside the Community, we’ll help you find discussion partners who share your interests, commitment, English level, and time zone so you can practice together and support each other consistently.
You’ll practice real conversation with women around the world in our live workshops guided by our English Fluency Coaches, gaining motivation and inspiration to continue on your English confidence journey.
We’ve made it easy for you to meet others you’ll love talking to in English!
SO, IS THIS A NEW COURSE? LIKE FLUENCY SCHOOL?
Not at all. It’s a Community.
The Confident Women Community is like joining a book club, a professional networking association, or yoga studio.
When you join, you’re immediately surrounded by other women with shared English goals. Common interests.
And a similar commitment to the English confidence journey.
We support, connect, and grow together inside our private Confident Women Community platform.
It’s a safe, private, members-only online space.
It’s not a social media site. It’s not a Facebook group.
That means zero photos from your high school friends.
No advertisements, no political posts, no distractions.
Everything happens inside our own platform.
When you have 15 minutes to practice English inside the community,
it’s 100% all about English.
Meet Women in the Confident Women Community
"What I love most about the CWC is the warm and comfortable English learning environment. Since joining, I am now willing to challenge myself more to present in large group meetings.
I would definitely recommend the CWC to other women who want to improve English and gain confidence. CWC not only helps us building confidence on speaking English, but also lots of life-long friendship and wisdom."
"Though it is meant for learning English speaking, it's far beyond it, with a loving feeling of having budding connections with many fantastic ladies around the world, with amazing ideas, where we could break through the limits of boundaries.
I feel so much elated being a member of CWC. We feel so safe and being loved here."
"What I love most about the CWC is the positive energy inside the community with most women sharing their experiences, struggles, and valuable advice.
And to find not only one but two amazing speaking partners. We meet once a week and discuss the roadmap and other topics."
"The truth is, I didn't have any specific expectations or ideas. I just went for it because I had the certainty that came from past experience that everything Annemarie has under her guidance is excellent and worth it.
It is a truly amazing platform and community that gives opportunities for the overall development and improvement of all skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking) and much more. I guarantee that anyone who decides to try it and become a member of the CWC will not be disappointed."
"Since I joined the CWC, my use of everyday English has been more natural and confident. Also, my vocabulary has expanded considerably.
It's a safe place in which one can improve one's language skills thanks to high-quality activities, invaluable cultural exchanges and authentic interactions with talented women."
It's such a pleasure to meet so many incredible women here. We learn, laugh, and grow together as women, mothers, daughters, and wives. Please join us if you want to build up your self-confidence and improve your spoken English in a fantastic community."

Are You As Excited as We Are?
In October 2021, we will reopen the doors to the Confident Women Community. We’d love to have you join us!
IS IT RIGHT FOR YOU?
Let’s see if it’s the right fit.
The Confident Women Community is a private, members-only opportunity open to all women from all cultures with an Intermediate (B1) to Advanced (C1) level of English; women who are motivated to succeed, passionate about self-development, and ready to commit to their English confidence goals.
If that sounds like you, we’d love to welcome you into the Confident Women Community.
Let’s see if the Confident Women Community is a good match for you:
It’s a good match if you…
Are looking for a community of women with whom to connect and practice your English conversation skills so you can support each other and grow together.
Get excited about the idea of practicing with and supporting others who share your commitment to English confidence and your interests.
Value diversity, empathy, kindness, generosity, and mutual respect.
It’s not a good match if you…
Are looking for an English course with lessons, classes from an English teacher, and homework. The Confident Women Community is not a course.
Expect to practice exclusively with or receive 1:1 feedback from an English language teacher and are not interested in practicing with discussion partners.
Prefer to practice alone or only with people who look, think, and act very similar to you.
Are still working to achieve a B1 level of English and are currently at a Beginner (A1) or Pre-Intermediate (A2) level.
FEEL LIKE IT’S A GOOD MATCH?
Fantastic! Here’s what you can do to join.
1. Request to join with the form below. It’s very short.
We want to make sure you have the right level and understand that this is a women-only community.
2. Check your email. We will confirm your request.
3. Accept your invitation when we open enrollment. We will reopen the Confident Women Community in October 2021. When we do, you will receive your invitation to join by email.
Request to join when we reopen on October 25, 2021.
The Confident Women Community is open to all women with an Intermediate (B1/B2) to Advanced (C1) level in English. If you’re not sure of your level, please use our self-assessment. Members must be 18 years old or older to join.
HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS?
Answers to common questions.
When and how can I join?
Our July enrollment period has closed.
We are currently welcoming all our new members and beginning the fun, exciting work of English confidence together.
Women who request to join and meet the level requirements (B1 – C1) will receive an email invitation to join when we reopen enrollment in October 2021.
The only way to join is with an email invitation after you request to join.
With your invitation, you will receive a link to our registration page where you can choose a month-to-month or annual enrollment.
Who can join the Confident Women Community?
The Confident Women Community (CWC) is designed exclusively for women and is open to all women around the world with an Intermediate (B1) to Advanced (C1) level of English.
That doesn’t mean you don’t feel shy or nervous when you speak. Our goal is to help you overcome those challenges inside the community.
Furthermore, women who join must be 18 years or older.
All materials created for the Confident Women Community are specifically designed for adults and for English speakers with an intermediate to advanced level.
If you’re not sure of your level, please use our self-assessment.
While our courses — including Fluency School, Confident Job Interviews, and Powerful Public Speaking — are open to men and women, the Confident Women Community is a women-only space and serves the SCE mission to empower every woman to get the confidence she wants for her life and work in English — no matter where she was born, where she lives now, or how shy or stuck she feels.
How much is the membership? Is it free?
The Confident Women Community is a month-to-month membership, like a Netflix subscription or gym club membership.
The investment is $49 USD per month. About the same as 2 online English classes with a platform such as italki or 2 yoga classes.
We also have an annual option with 2 months free for $490 per year.
When you join, your membership will automatically renew every month. But you can cancel at any time.
Is there a guarantee? What if I'm not satisfied?
We offer a 7-Day Risk-Free Guarantee.
The Confident Women Community is a month-to-month membership, like a Netflix subscription or gym club membership.
You will automatically be charged every month unless you cancel your membership. You can cancel at any time.
If you join the Confident Women Community and decide it is not for you, you can cancel within the first 7 days of your membership and receive a full refund.
After 7 days, you can cancel any time to leave the community and stop future payments, but payments already made will not be refunded.
Is there a guarantee for progress?
The Confident Women Community is a vibrant online community where you can support, connect, and grow with other women on the English confidence journey.
Every individual will make her own progress and her own pace. The more time and effort you give, the more progress you will make.
Is this a course like Fluency School? Or Advanced Conversation? Will I get feedback?
Great question! I have a long and short answer for you.
Fluency School, Advanced Conversation, and Mastering Conversation are courses where you learn new content/strategies, get practice & feedback to make progress, and advance to a new level.
The Confident Women Community is an opportunity to connect with other women on the English confidence journey, support one another, and implement strong English practice habits in a safe, private space.
The Confident Women Community is like joining a book club where you can meet and talk with other women who are equally passionate about books. Or joining a professional association where you get to know and learn from others.
Our Community is an English Confidence club — a place to connect with other women from around the world, get and give support, and grow your current English skills through real-life practice with the support of women in the community and guidance from the SCE Team.
Like a book club or professional association, there are resources available to help you and live events where you can meet and share with others.
It is not a course.
Inside the community, the SCE Team provides guidance and resources. However, in the community, we do not provide 1:1 support/feedback, private classes, language training, or traditional classes.
Our live workshops are group learning experiences, like joining a class at a gym or yoga studio.
Inside the workshops, our Fluency Coaches guide all students as they practice and provide corrections as needed to ensure accuracy.
The Confident Women Community provides a variety of ways to practice, get support, connect to others, and grow. The progress you make in your English skills is based on how much you participate and choose to practice inside the community.
For women who want a language training course with language teaching and feedback, Fluency School may be a better option.
Fluency School is a course with specific start and end dates and a structured syllabus with strategies that help students get unstuck, speak clearly, and sound natural in English.
After Fluency School, our Advanced Conversation and Mastering Conversation courses are specifically designed for graduates to master their skills and advance to a new level in English in small, intimate groups and with in-depth instruction from a teacher.
Our Fluency School students know how important a supportive community is for extra practice, connection, and motivation on the English confidence journey.
There is comfort in finding others who share your struggles, your goals, and your triumphs. And there is momentum when you work together. That is exactly what the Confident Women Community is all about.
How can I join a workshop? Where do I attend?
All of our live workshops happen on Zoom.
We offer a variety of workshops at different times during the month to accommodate multiple time zones.
Like a group class at a gym or yoga studio, our workshops are open to all members.
When are the workshops? What happens if I can’t join a workshop?
The greatest benefit of the Confident Women Community is the opportunity to connect with other women and practice together.
That can happen in two ways:
1. We will help match you with an ideal conversation partner or group based on your English level, time zone, availability, and interests. This means you can create a successful meeting schedule and practice regularly.
2. Inside our workshops, we do large and small group activities. In small group work, you’ll meet other women and make connections that may develop into strong friendships. You’ll also receive guidance from our SCE Fluency Coaches.
The SCE Team hosts 8-10 workshops per month at a variety of times to accommodate multiple time zones. The workshops times may change monthly to best suit our community.
All workshops hosted by SCE Team members are recorded. If you are unable to join, you can watch the recorded session and still learn.
How will I be matched with a discussion partner?
For members who would like to find a discussion partner or group, we have a survey that includes details about your time zone, English level, topics of interest, preferred practice times, and more.
After we’ve collected all surveys during the first week after registration, we will help to match partners.
Is this a group on Facebook?
Good news — no! Many women in our community are not on Facebook.
We created a 100% private online space so there are no distractions and no ads.
Bonus: Early access to Fluency School
Fluency School is our 6-week intensive speaking course.
Due to its popularity and the limited number of spots available, Fluency School sells out quickly.
As a bonus, our CWC members get early access to Fluency School enrollment to guarantee their spot in our course.
We provide a link to the enrollment page before it is available to the public during registration.
Everything we do at SCE is designed to help you get the confidence you want for your life and work in English. Here’s why…
As a fellow naturally-shy, introverted language learner, I share the fears, frustrations, worries, and discouragement you feel in working to gain English confidence and fluency.
I struggled for years in my own language learning process. Classrooms, books, online videos, private tutors… I did it all. But I was still 100% stuck.
With a combination of the right strategies, support, and a community of women to practice with, I achieved my goals.
You can do the same. And it’s exactly why we’re opening the Confident Women Community.
Inside the Community, you’ll find intelligent, professional, motivated, and generous women just like you who are committed to success. And who are not ready to give up.
Together we flourish.
