After a few words by the supervising school teacher, Mrs Madihah, and the accompanying lecturer from UniSZA, Mr. Ahmad Taufik Hidayah , the programme kicked off, with facilitators and students were divided into groups. Each group of the students had been given "personalised" coaching and supervision to cater to their needs in writing English essay.
Altogether, the programme had emphasised on narrative and descriptive essays in SPM, a stumbling block in Section B of SPM's English Paper 1. It was such a successful programme indeed where the students from the school had been given some valuable supervision and guidance in writing essay. On the other hands, our diploma TESL students also had a good opportunity in imparting their knowledge, especially with the application of their techniques and methods in teaching English essay writing.
