It was a successful workshop which was held almost 3 months ago. When all the planning and activities planted in my head and seeing them unfolded one-by-one, that’s what I call a sense of accomplishment. I could feel a deep sense of joy and what’s more when there was a pupil wrote in her free topic composition about how fun this workshop was to her. That’s what I want to achieve. I am not concerning on marks first. My main objective was to instil them that learning language is fun. Recently, I heard a newspaper report on certain individual involvement in buying fake degrees. How could someone on earth doing such thing? Does h/she happy with that accomplishment deep down from his/her hearts? A lie is a lie and I will not respect someone who has chosen to purchase fake degrees.
Back to the workshop, due to time constraints, some of the activities had been cancelled. I learnt how importance planning was. I also learnt that when your activities were fun, you would experience running out of time instead of complaining time allocated was too long. However, I strongly disagree that the pupils should be given 4 hours long tuition for only one subject. It would be rationale and wise if pupils are having 2 subjects in between 2 hours gap. It was tiring to me and the pupils themselves if this is to be done everyday. It is possible thing to do and I have experienced it all by myself giving 4 hours tuition for ONLY one subject, but my conclusion is the time duration is too long and shall be shortened to only 2 hours! Anyway, the workshop was indeed successful and enjoyable. Let the photos below tell the stories on that day:
