Hi,

I'm a host of English Corner (A place for practice and using the language), last time, all the participants were kids, so a prospective client thought this English Corner is for kids. I then said:

It's an English Corner for all ages.

I wonder if the bold is nautral.

    You can't use a proper name (like "English Corner": note the capital letters) with "a/an/the". You need to use a regular noun with "a/an/the". The simplest ones to describe English Corner are "club" and "group", but you can use another you like better. Than the sentence becomes one of these:

    English Corner is a club for all ages.
    It is a club for all ages.


    There is a shorter sentence, used in casual speech, that avoids the grammar issue:

    English Corner is for all ages.
