English club

Postby neo_xx » Thu, 28 May 2009 6:39 pm

Hi,

I am sure there should be many native English speaking expats in this forum. I wonder if somebody can arrange an English club for help of other expats who really want to improve their English skill. Advantage is not only for the learners but the master also get an opportunity to develop his skills. Dont hesitate to show ur interest.......

Hi All.....

We can come up with a program and arrange a peaceful place for gathering. But we need to wait for a volunteer for conducting the session.

i used to do something like this in Hong Kong. I volunteered to help 2 girls who were having lessons at the British Council before they did their exam. They both came to my house and we did extra exercises from their text books and watchet English TV shows........Then suddenly they both had some other 'friends' who also wanted to join in but basically wanted a free English teacher. We met on Tues mornings and then one day one girl couldn't come until lunch time and then one girl wanted to come and meet me in the evenings 'cos she changed job and the whole thing became a huge pain in the arse.
Also with more than a 1 2 1 you end up having a bunch of people doing different courses / exams and at different levels and it really becomes a waste of everyones time. Sorry to be so negative but speaking as someone who tried this once I really wouldn't recommend it .....

it is not a bible class, we will be having conversational classes for now, in the future, we might be using bible passages for English lessons. Also, the class is held in the church compounds. But it won't be a preaching session, more really for us to get to know international students better.
