Extra-Curricular Activities


SEAMEO English Speaking Club

Speaking to yourself can be "dangerous" because you may not recognize your mistakes, incorrect pronunciation, and more importantly it is not natural. That is why you should make every possible effort to find somebody to talk to. It is not hard to find a friend to speak English with you if you come to SEAMEO English Speaking Club (SEAMEO ESC) to practice. This is actually one of the free extra-curricular activities attracting many students at SEAMEO RETRAC. According to many students, SEAMEO ESC is a useful and interesting activity. It helps, not only SEAMEO students, but also others from outside the Center the opportunities to meet, make friends and practice speaking English. Some SEAMEO ESC activities include group discussions, presentations, telling stories, quizzes, etc. SEAMEO ESC is moderated by native English speaking teachers.
