During the semester, the teachers and staffs have an English club to practice together how to use English in classroom. As example, we learn how to greet the students by saying “Good morning!”, “How are you today?” Beside that, we also use English to give instruction in class like “Open your book page 64!” Third is English Corner. The Students Affairs organize their room to be an English Corner. Every Tuesday, the students can enter the room and they must speak English there. This program can help the students to increase their speaking ability and practice together with their classmates. (Ms. Yunita)
