Creating Fun English Club Activities to Learn English
Primary Meeting Activities
Debates and discussion
Club debates or discussions are the most popular type of English club activity. They let people use English in a more natural way than in a classroom.
It helps to have a new discussion topic for each meeting. This helps keep conversations from being too repetitive. It also encourages club members to learn new vocabulary words.
Debates are good ways to keep participants interested. They create excitement, and make the speaker practice using new words. The club has many members, it is a good idea to divide the group into several smaller groups. If possible, each of the small groups should be given a different discussion or debate subject.
Every 15 to 30 minutes, people can move on to the next subject.
We encourage club members to come up with debate subjects for future meetings.
Guest speakers and presentations;
We also invite people to give presentations in English. They may be politicians, non-profit workers, teachers, police, and so on. Participants can ask the presenter questions. Our participants can also take turns giving presentations on subjects that are important to them, as well.
English-language songs and readings;
Another fun club activity is to listen to popular songs in English. To make this more effective, we provide the words of the song to the club members. Participants can then use the song’s message as a discussion topic. We also select a section from an English-language book to read and discuss as a group.
Our participants enjoy acting, creating short skits or plays in English are fun language exercises.
While having interesting club meetings is important for keeping participants motivated, we avoid too much repetition. Doing special activities with the club from time to time gives participants something to look forward to, builds friendships, and provides new ways to learn.
We organize a short trip. Our club can see an English-language movie together at a theater, go on a hike, or attend a concert to watch an English-language band. Another idea is to visit a museum with an English-speaking guide.
If club members enjoy writing, collect English-language essays, stories, or poetry that they write. We can publish their work together in a newsletter.
Our idea is to create friendly competitions with the club’s participants or between other English clubs. Poetry, speech, or debate competitions are especially effective.
This is another idea of EMC is to host English-language film viewings during a club meeting or at other locations.
A party to celebrate a holiday or just for fun. This is a way to help create a friendly, informal environment for club members. Remember to encourage English-only conversations at such events, however.
There are hundreds of possibilities for English club activities. This list provides you with a good start. The important thing to remember is to keep things fun and keep the club members motivated.
