- A speaking course was launched at the beginning of Ramadan and continues all the month of Ramadan every Saturday, Monday and Thursday with 12 participated members.


English club was a place that supported members in dealing effectively with their skills in order to remove barriers to speaking English, a place that helped them to practice a language they don't speak in their daily life. The club made a positive impact on members by giving them the courage and confidence to stand and speak in front of other colleagues which enhances the team spirit too. English Club made it easier for members to learn from each other, as for intermediate members have learnt from advanced and advanced ones had the opportunity to practice and use English as a spoken language.
