Written by Pentadbir.

EMEL

 

The inaugural programme of "Enrich My English Language" or EMEL was officially launched by Deputy Vice Chancelor (Academic and International), the honourable Profesor Dr. Mahadzirah binti Mohamad on 12 October 2017. EMEL is a manifestation of one of the English flagship programmes in Malaysia, and is also one of the English programmes organized by the Faculty of Languages and Communication (FBK) for UniSZA's English Ecosystem. This programme aims at producing students who can use English language confidently in both academic and occupational sectors, as well as enhancing their interpersonal skills in dealing with the society at large by using English.

The top management of UniSZA has commissioned the FBK, in collaboration with the Faculty of General Studies and Advanced Education (FUPL), to establish a programme to meet the above objectives. With the full support of the university management and a good collaborative work from the two faculties, four modules were produced to cater for the need of the students in improving their English language. The four modules are Public Speaking, English on Campus, English for Fun, and English in Action.

There are 120 undergraduate students as participants from the seven faculties of Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin, in which their selection is based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The programme lasts for 12 weeks, starting from 21 September till 14 December 2017, every Thursday at 2 to 5 pm. Throughout the programme, the participants will be facilitated by 64 highly competent and well-trained facilitators from semester three and five degree students majoring in Bachelor of English with Communication at FBK. They had undergone a rigorous and comprehensive training programme called "Training of Trainers" (ToT) on 13 and 14 September 2017 before, a week before the programme started.

In order to ensure the progress and participants' achievements, an assessment is also administered at the end of every session. A thoroughly assessed assessment form is distributed to participants in order to get some feedback on the activities held from the perspectives of the activities conducted, the effectiveness and resourcefulness of the facilitators in conducting the activities and above all, to get some suggestions and recommendations from the participants on how to improve this programme in the future.

As highlighted by the UniSZA's deputy vice chancellor during the launching ceremony of this EMEL programme, the participants of this programme are expected to take on a role as 'agents of change' among UniSZA students to practice and use English as it is often considered as difficult to be acquired. In this way, other students will be moved to use English at all times and situations. Indeed, by organizing this fun and joyful English programme in a non-threatening environment, it will become a catalyst for other university students to join this programme in future, thus fulfilling the hope and desire of the university to develop excellent human capital, especially in the mastery of the English language.
Let's join us. English is Fun.

Kelancaran sesuatu majlis terletak pada tulang belakang penganjur dan juga pengacara majlis. Pengacara majlis bukan sahaja perlu menyampaikan skrip pengacaraan dengan baik, malah perlu menjadi seorang yang kreatif dan cepat bertindak. Menyedari kepentingan peranan dan tanggungjawab seorang pengacara majlis, Fakulti Bahasa dan Komunikasi, Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin telah mengambil inisiatif menganjurkan Bengkel Pengacaraan Majlis.

Bengkel tersebut telah dikendalikan oleh pembaca berita serta penerbit rancangan TV 3 iaitu Saudara Mior Abdul Malek bin Raiyani. Bengkel tersebut telah berlangsung di Dewan Seminar, Pusat Seni dan Warisan, UniSZA, pada 1 Oktober 2017 dan telah disertai oleh lebih 30 orang peserta yang terdiri daripada warga UniSZA serta peserta dari luar. Selain bertujuan mencungkil bakat peserta, bengkel ini juga dianjurkan dengan tujuan untuk memperbaiki teknik pengacaraan majlis, serta mempelajari teknik penyampaian skrip dengan cara yang menarik dan bersahaja.

Pattani Retweet Programme

Written by Pentadbir.

 

PATTANI

 

The Faculty of Languages and Communication (FBK), Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin (UniSZA) has successfully carried out its outbound international student mobility programme at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (HUSO), Prince of Songkla Universiti (PSU), Thailand.

The programme primarily served as a stepping-stone in exposing FBK students to international programmes and gaining experience at the international level. The students hopefully would learn new culture, history, and the language of ASEAN countries in general and the Pattani province, Thailand in particular. In addition, this programme also hoped to form a closer relationship among the students and academic staff of UniSZA and PSU, besides supporting the university's internationalisation policy by introducing UniSZA internationally.

19 students of Bachelor of Arabic Studies (Honour) and Bachelor of English with Communication (Honour), FBK, UniSZA participated in the Pattani Retweet Programme: Youth Tourist Promotion organised by the HUSO, PSU that took place for 9 days, from the 18th to 26th of August 2017 at the Southern View Hotel, Pattani.

The student delegation and an accompanying lecturer boarded the bus on Friday the 18th to Rantau Panjang. After crossing the border, the assigned PSU student buddies fetched our students on their bus. They checked into their accommodation, the Park View Resort, Pattani at sunset where they met PSU officials. A welcome dinner was held later that night.
The students were taken to the programme site the next day for registration and ice- breaking session. As one participant, reflecting on the ice-breaking games remarked:
"The Ice-breaking session was totally different from what I had experienced before. It was very interactive and enjoyable because we played few games in order to get to know each other, and I can see that the bond between Unisza and PSU students started there. Moreover, the facilitators were very cheerful, and one of them even played the drum during the session. It was a great way to start the programme."
