Journey in TESL I

Salam and hello everyone :)

During my foundation year, I've posted about my journey in pre-TESL. Now I'm taking degree in TESL, so, I think it's good if I share my journey here too (although this journey has started since 2 months ago and this semester almost come to an end. ;p). Let's get started!

As I've mentioned before, right now, I'm taking Bachelor of Science with Education (TESL) in UTM Skudai, Johor. Uuu, I am an undergraduate student seyyh. Pre-service teacher seyyhh..

Insya-Allah, we'll have 6 semesters (4 years) in here. For this semester, the subjects we study are Fundamentals of Grammar, Introduction to Literature, Japanese Language I, Educational Philosophy, Introduction to Teaching Profession, Teaching & Learning Technology, Computer System and Multimedia and Islamic & Asian Civilisation (TITAS). As for the co-curriculum, I'm taking First Aid I.

In these 2 almost 3 months, I've gone through a lot of programmes and things.

21-23/9/2012 : FYE (First-Year Experience)
it's our faculty orientation. Faculty of Education's.
We had it at Teluk Gorek, Mersing. Very nice place :)

Upper right: '12 TESLian girls.
Lower left: My team-mates with the facilitators. Right: Our team's flag. We're The Cat.

Mid-October : Festival Konvokesyen UTM (FESKO '12)
A festival held in conjunction with the convocation. Lepak at First Aid's booth for a session. Joined Aqsa Syarif's flashmob.

This was another I enjoyed apart from the sales.
FIREWORKS!
It was my first time seeing them closely. 




Past & Present : Having nice stay in Kolej Perdana
Where we study and do the assignments and also, live.

The view from the balcony in our wing in a foggy morning. Subhanallah.
Pigeons liked to chill out at my room's window.

10-18/11/2012 : Midsem Break
early break, my birthday
end of break, went out with Hamizah & Athirah Kahar :)

22/11/2012 : TESL Night 2012
Organized by 2nd year students, celebrating final year students.
Held at Grand Paragon Hotel, JB.
The food was superb! Alhamdulillah. Worth the money, I guess.



Today, 24/11/2012 - Malakoff
Eco run. It has lots of sports competition. Cycling, Marathon, Sukaneka, etc.
Was in the UTM Health Centre's booth with friends (since we're taking First Aid). Did some basic medical check-up on people and ourselves. Also played congkak for fun. Went back to college with ambulance.

You can tell how excited we were riding the ambulance. It is a rare opportunity.
(maybe should be grateful that it's a rare opportunity for me)
Always present : Study
Assignments can't be separated from us. Study is our fight. Some subjects are challenging as they require deep understanding and a lot of reading. Awowowo. But I shall not give up as this is the choice I've made in the past. ずっと いきて!ان الله معنا

Coming soon:
- Japanese students visit to UTM
- NIEW Gender Debate (I was a part of the committee)
- assignment, presentations, public speaking.

It feels like time flew so fast. The study week is just a month away! waaa~
الحمد لله على كل حال. May Allah bless this journey.

Wassalam :)
