The English Language Club is an initiative taken by YELI to serve the students of the RCYCI throughout the studies. The club was originally established in 2011 to serve the students of Yanbu Industrial College. Since then, the club has expanded to have branches at both the YTI and YUC Women’s’ campuses.
The club was inspired the need to practice using English outside the classroom as a means of improving and developing their proficiency. The club tries to compensate for the lack of exposure opportunities to English for students living in a non-English speaking environment.
The aim of the English Language Club is to build a generation of students confident in expressing themselves in English. To this end, the club organizes spelling, speaking and debate contests as well as making use of Scrabble board games to create a fun learning atmosphere.
The English Language Club offers the students opportunities to practice their language through a variety of social and recreational activities. These include:
- Speaking and Debate Competitions
- Spelling Bees
- Scrabble Tournaments
- Community Service and Volunteer Work
