Overview

Answering the requests of many members of our local chapter, JCI Tartus English club aimed to create a free friendly space for the members to experience and try. The club served as an area for the members to freely practice public speaking in front of their peers, practice debating as well as learn something new every day. We chose the most suitable trainers from our chapter and different topics to talk about each session, from personal feelings to memories to exotic cultures, as well as interactive and competitive ice-breaking games and songs. the trainers also provided the attendance with notes about voice pitch, body language, audience control, points of information and controlling the flow of a debate. Many useful notes and tricks were given to the participants each session and this helped prepare a debate team for the chapter as well as choosing a suitable person to represent JCI Tartus in the public speaking competitions on both national and international levels.
JCI Tartus English club collaborated with the Syrian British Center (SBC) learning center to continue with the sessions. The center adopted the idea of the club and ensured its sustainability as it opened the SBC English club to the public with a member of JCI Tartus being the facilitator.
