The English Language of UTAS- Ibri, has always been at the forefront in rendering services to the local community. As part of the novel initiative, the ELC conducted a General English Course for more than 20 students from the Public Authority of Consumer Protection, General Directorate of Agriculture Wealth & Water Resources, Administration of Heritage & Tourism, Al Dhahira Municipality, Administration of Culture, Sports & Youth, Civil Defense & Ambulance Authority, General Directorate for Social Development, Wali's Office (Ibri) and the ROP in the Dhahira region.

 A five-day introductory English language course was offered from January 9 to January 13, 202 and was conducted by Ms Adeebah Mohammed Salim Al Sawafi, Mr Shaikh Muhmmed Waheed and Dr Mohsen Amiri. Based on the data gathered from needs analysis, Ms Sharon Ruth Devaneson created and designed the teaching materials for all four English language skills (LSRW) that catered to the student's language needs. The learning materials were compiled in a booklet that served as a ready reckoner to the students and helped them enhance their functional English and ESP.

The English language instructors engaged the students with interactive activities in a stress-free environment, instilled confidence, and encouraged them to learn the language further. Dr Mohsen and Ms Adeebah used popular classroom activities like role-playing, pantomime, and Kahoot to make the language tangible and exciting.

The course ended on an impressive note, and the feedback was highly encouraging. The students described it as an enjoyable experience and requested the team for more. They also thanked the management for encouraging them to take this course and benefit from it. Some of the students were IbriCT's alumni and walked down memory lane with some of their senior teachers. Dr Sultan Al Ghafri, Head of Sections -ELP, congratulated the students on completing the General English course and wished them the best in their future endeavours. He distributed Certificates of Participation to the students. He also appreciated the teachers for their efforts and dedication.
