    Isn't this a group of English improvement

    Hi.

    I recently joined an online chat group. The name of the group is Online English Learning. But every day they just talk about politics. Today I couldn't stand any longer and I asked "Isn't this a group of English improvement?".

    Is my question natural?

    No.

    Do we have to talk about politics all the time?
    Can we talk about something else?

    You could also get their opinions on the sort of questions you ask us about.

    If you want to start with "Isn't this a group ...", you could end with "... to help people improve their English?" or "... for improving learners' English?" (or similar).
    To start with "Isn't this a group of ...", you'd have to end with "English learners [and teachers]?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I think the simplest fix to the original sentence would be to replace 'of' with 'about'.
