Semester 2 Activity: Macbeth Dramatization (20 May 2010)

In semester 2, we are required to produce a play based on Shakespeare's play, Macbeth. We were required to do the dramatization in order to fulfill the requirement of our English Studies' coursework.

We practice every day except weekends for three weeks staright for nearly a month. At first, we pratice our play in the class but as things progress we had to change the venue to Hone Hall. The hall was bigger and it was the venue for our dramtization. Most importantly, we can get used being on stage.

On the day of the dramatization, we went to Hone Hall early to make preparation for our play. Alicia and Sharon, who were in charge of makeup, arrived early to make up all Teslians.

Thanks to Alicia, Sharon and Evon for their hard work in making the Teslians look wonderful.

Thanks to all the Teslians, who did all their tasks given well and done well in their acting.

And, Teslians would also like to thank our evaluator, Madam Shuba for coming to our play which was held at night and thanks for taking your time to evaluate us.

Mini English Carnival

 (27 April 2010)
It posed a challenge to us when someone suggested us to organise a mini english carnival as one of the activities for our English Language Society (ELS). After much discussing and postponments, our class and English Language Society's advisors(Madam Aidah, Miss Lee Sow Ying & Madam Shuba) finally agreed on the date, 27th of April. Weeks before the big event, we started to prepare our material for the language games cum treasure hunt, story telling, talent time, puppet show and puppet making. We also sent out invition to one school, inviting 20 students to come to join our Mini English Carnival.

A week before the event, we make a banner to promote the event.
The logo on the left is our English Language Society logo.

On the day before the event, we put up our banner near the entrance of our school gate. There were also preparations of our activities for the next day at Dewan Hone

UMS Library Trip

(21 April 2010)
Seventeen teslians escorted by our Language Development's lecturer, Miss Lee Sow Ying went to UMS Library for an educational trip. The trip was a really eye-opening experience. UMS Library is huge and there are many resources available for students. We went there for an educational tour cum doing research for our Language Development's coursework. Here are some photos from our trip.

9) At the MegaLab

10) The MegaLab provides high-speed internet for free for five hours.

11) Students at UMS can return books at machine provided unlike the traditional method where we need to go to the librarian to scan the books.

12) Express OPAC is where one can search for the book's call number, so one can find the book they want easier.

After the tour, we had the rest of the afternoon walking around the library looking for books and running around to find the photocopy shop which is at a very secluded place.

A Blog In Making

A blog for IPG Kent Teslians July 2009 is not a bad idea. I created this blog in hoping that I can record down our moments together, what we are doing and to share it to everyone out there. The idea to actually create a blog is not a new one. I had this idea a long time ago but nothing had happened until now. It was the lack of motivation which leaded me to part with the idea. Now, I am back with this idea and more motivate to make this blog a dream come true. This motivation is credited to Keningau's Teslian. Their blog evokes my desire to blog about my own Tesl group in Kent.

Here, I present all the Teslians in Kent our own blog. Hope you all like it.
