On this page you’ll find everything you need to get started creating, managing, and facilitating English clubs wherever you are.
English clubs serve an important function in allowing participants to use and practice English in an informal setting. Some English clubs are held in classrooms, others in one of the over 700 American Spaces worldwide, and some are held weekly in people’s homes. Wherever they take place, they are sure to attract those that are excited to share stories, inspirations, and opinions while speaking English.
Below we have three online manuals that will inspire discussions about topics that impact a learning community and its members. Each manual is more than 200 pages long and has a specific audience: readers, members, and leaders. Each section is divided into four or more weeks of activities that will lead to thoughtful discussions during English Club meetings. For each topic, a brief introduction provides background information, followed by a skit and a simulated interview. Finally, participants will be guided through a series of questions to visualize and create positive changes in their communities. While the manuals do not focus on teaching English, all sections include some vocabulary and commonly used phrases. Participants may also find that their ability to have conversations in English will improve.
