September 6th, 2017

Date:12/08

On this fateful day we headed for Dataran Merdeka from our school, to begin our forth special activity: Interviewing foreign tourists. This activity was guided by two teachers, Mrs Michelle and Mr Nagen.

As soon as we arrived at the spot at around 10 a.m. We began spotting for wandering tourists so as to politely ask them for an interview about their thoughts and impressions of Malaysia and its cultures.

The members were given the chance to communicate with people of other races and nationality from different backgrounds around the globe.

Of course the aim of the activity was not only to find out what tourists thought about Malaysia before and after their visit here, the activity also focused on training the members to be more fluent in speaking with others through English, to enhance communication and collaboration with others,and to promote the spirit of autonomous learning amongst the members.

In conclusion, the members learnt how to initiate a friendly and warm conversation with foreigners with the use of English that united us all.

For five days straight we held the much anticipated iconic event of the <To Explore, To Learn, To ❤️ English> Week, which is also known as the English Week.

A book fair held by ELS, with the support of renowned trader of educative reading materials, Scholastic, was organized in the small hall everyday for the five days during the first and second recess for visitors to gaze upon tables of books to be sold and studied. The Spelling Bee competition had also been held continuously everyday after school in the small hall during the week.

For the first day we held the General Knowledge Quiz competition in the JE classes after school. The participants had been tested for their strength and intellect in answering the questions of which revolved around various general topics around the world. A lot of participants turned up for the competition to emerge victorious in the end and bask in the light of glory.

The next day there was a choral speaking competition. The event of course, ended with a thunderous applause for the 3 winning teams judged by fellow professionals. On the third day, a finale for the singing competition was held. It was a tremendous success as the small hall that can hold a sizable amount of 150 or more audiences was almost instantly filled with cheers of the roaring crowd to their favourited individual singers or bands. In the course of Tsun Jin’s long history, it was also the very first English language themed singing competition.  On the forth day, the final round of the public speaking competition was held in the small hall after school. The participants gave their best shot in delivering sophisticated speech of sorts in the competition.

A motivational speaker or inspirational speaker is a speaker who makes speeches intended to motivate or inspire an audience.Sometimes we need someone to motivate us to do something. Today, our teacher has invited a 22 years old young boy, named Jacky Wong, a motivational speaker came to give us a wonderful talk. As expected, speech came out from him is something that we don not hear normally. The main idea of his talk is about”dream to dare” and public speaking. What he teach us  is most about communication skill and how to “talk”.
