SMA N 1 BukatejaEnglish club or English forum or English community (whatever the name) is a good place for learning English outside of the class. Especially as a place to apply knowledge about English that have been received in the classroom. So, the activities should not like a formal class, but should be fun, relax, and give a chance to the members to use their English. Wherever the English club exist (school, college, university, workplace) actually has the same concept: as a place to use English, not just study English. So, in deciding to start an English club, you should find some other people who are interested in starting an English club and they won’t be shy to practice if they asked to use their English. After that, you can talk about the things you’d like to do together. Means the activities. Maybe you will make a discussion, debates, hold a special event for education day or your school’s anniversary, etc. But, please note that you must consider about the place and frequency of your meetings before you have activities.

The next consideration will be about the committee and membership. Should your club have a leader, secretary, treasurer, etc? Or will you share your responsibility? Should the members pay a weekly fee? And so on… Then, in handling an English club, the meetings should not like a formal class where you find teacher and students. The committee (if the club has committee) should not seem like a teacher. So, the committee must make the meetings just like a discussion group. Every activity done together and all rules obeyed together too. Some activities that suggested to be done in an English club:

  1. Discussing a hot topic from magazine / newspaper
  2. Debates
  3. Interactive games
  4. Joining English radio program in your town (if available)
