CEC activities or work programs improve their English language skills, especially speaking skills. Although not aiming to learn English, students got an experience of learning English at CEC that is different from learning in the classroom. They got the opportunity to practice English more often. In addition, CEC provides environmental and mental support for learning English. Students consider English material to be not just written grammar material, but English material can be obtained through an environment, discussion, and experience that can improve their English language skills.
