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.
In this time of the month we have organized an authentic camping activity by the name of <You Live, You Learn> Enlightenment Camp for the members to spend more time together after school and also to present an opportunity for them to learn and grow.
Throughout the entire activity the members have engaged in various entertaining and fruitful events. We have also invited Mr Joe Fhang, a famous local lecturer who specializes in training others to yield improvements over their English language proficiency, the ability to give a good speech and in similar fields.He has come to our aid during the camp to train the members to better their language skills and prowess in the arts of expressing their thoughts verbally.
Also,our esteemed teacher advisor, Mrs Michelle has also delivered to us a powerful speech of how to manage ourselves in the competitive business world and how to cooperate with our peers in our work to achieve greater heights together without conflicting others.
Generally, the members and the teacher advisor had a wonderful time together during this activity, and most definitely we will organize a camp again in the following years.
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.
In a nutshell, the English Week was a great success for both the members and those who have participated in any of the activities. This symbolic and iconic event will remain a tradition for the ELS for many years to come.
