Ahoy matey! Welcome aboard to the second semester of B. Ed. TESL!
Yes, the ship had just set sail today, and I’m looking forward to this all-new semester! We have seven courses and they are *drumrolls*:
Educational Sociology [EDU453]
Instructional Technology [EDU455]
Literature in Malaysian School [TSL430]
Principles and Practices in ELT [TSL450]
Structure of English [TSL476]
Literature for Children and Young Adults [TSL651]
Ethnic Relations [CTU553]
So, Literature courses have always been my favourites, and I’m hoping to wave some flying colours
[epic fail idiom] in both of them. In another news, according to the lecturers [from both UiTM and IPG Gaya], Structure in English is a killer subject. Screw you [the course, not the lecturers!] – I will work hard so that you won’t kill me! Ngiahaha~! As for the rest, let’s watch first~!
The first semester opened my eyes on how the university teaches and grades its students, and I can say that it was a fun/terrifying/exhausting ride. For now, a new voyage has begun, and I hope I’ll be a good boy and listen to the lectures, write notes perfectly, remember the stuff, answer the exam correctly, and stay on the Dean’s List. Staying in the list will be a challenge.
Oh yeah, this will be the last semester for us in Institut Pendidikan Guru Kampus Gaya. Next year in March, we’ll be moving to UiTM [Puncak Alam maybe]. I’m sure I’ll miss everyone here, and the advantages of being an IPG student [that advantage being that you’re taken cared by your lecturers far, far better than the U ones. My class only has 20 students. You can see why], but that’s another lifetime.
And yes, since this is a new semester, I’m officially released from the duty as the KO. I love the experience of being the KO, but one term is enough. Now, my obligation is as the runner for Educational Sociology, and it’s the first time for me to be a runner.
Right, that’s all I think for this post.
