On March 22, 2019, another English Games Club meeting organized by the Centre for Foreign Languages Study offered the participants to practice English by playing board games.

Thanks to Jocelyn Pihlaja, a Fulbright professor, who worked for half a year at our university, the Centre has several board games in English. The games were made for native speakers, therefore they can help to practice an up-to-date spoken language while playing.

The participants could play 5 games of different complexity levels during the meeting. The time was organized in such a way that everyone could play the games and not get bored. Meanwhile, the students could practice individual and group work to complete the tasks mastering their language skills.

During the game, the participants received tokens for the right answers. This time, a teacher from Iran Khamid Reza, who came to the Club for the second time, gained more tokens than everyone else and got a prize.

Nevertheless, everyone wins - because board games in English help to develop soft skills like communicative skills and emotional intelligence, necessary for successful studies and work. That’s why the students who attend our clubs regularly have a priceless opportunity for self-development.

We can’t but mention that there are more and more regulars at our Clubs. What’s more, they are not only from Belarus, but also from Nigeria, Turkmenistan, Russia and other countries.
