As an English student organization, BINUS English Club (BNEC) aims to educate and contribute to the wider educational world by giving platform to learn, develop, and enhance the English skills either for its members, talents, or society. To achieve the goals of educating and developing skills of the members and demonstrate our credibility and ability, variety program or event-based prestigious English had we held nationally and internationally. Through those events, we have also established partnership and made connections to the Asian level to continue to educate and develop the skills of everyone involved in it. However, we have not had enough and intend to continue to work and contribute to the wider educational world again. Therefore, BNEC held our very first event which gathered youth around Indonesia as a one Big Community in The 2016 English Community Conference: English Community in Today’s World.
This conference was held in BINUS University Anggrek Campus where we gather approximately more than 30 English Communities around Indonesia; from high school till varsity students. Inviting 6 speakers who experts in their field, such as: Debate, Scrabble, Storytelling, Speech, and Newscasting; we aim to make this conference to be a platform to learn and share among these communities so we could become a big English communities and give contribution for educational purpose to the society.
The event started with inspirational and motivational sharing by the speakers. In that session, participants could have the chance to ask them for tips and tricks, their experiences, and even took photos with those speakers. Bonding session was provided also in which the participants played games so they could interact with others. Next session was the Focus Group Discussion. The participants were divided into groups and were given cases; they had to discuss the best way to solve several problems and present their dicussion. Last, all of the participants were gathered in a Gala Dinner where fun and refreshing activities were held.
Seeing such a great accomplishments in The 2016 English Community Conference, BNEC would definitely hold this event again next year with higher expectation, target and will improve the quality more as we aim to be a great English organization and contributing with The English Community around Indonesia.
