To bring variety to English classes provided by our company, it was decided to try holding English Speaking Club. A new subject will be raised at each class and different discussion methods are to be used. At our first gathering we considered the topic of “Success”, and as it turned out, we all define success and ways of achieving it differently, which led to a heated discussion. We believe that having such classes helps to develop and maintain our speaking skills.
Our teacher directed our special attention to useful word-combinations, fixed phrases and grammatical constructions regarding the given subject.
By the end of a two hour lesson we noticed that we stopped making some particular mistakes as we did at first! Trying this alternative way of learning English we expect:
- to correct pronunciation;
- to achieve fluency;
- to break the language barrier;
- to improve vocabulary.
Our further plans include inviting the native speakers and arranging a Movie Club.
