Yesterday, I taught English to secondary students which were aged between 13 to 16 years old. There were 4 boys and 3 girls. Faisal, Fadhil, Luqman, Ma’ie, Hawa, Fatin and Hikmah.
Even though they were still not very confident with their English (which I think they shouldn’t), they learned quite fast. Well, some of them are studying in boarding school, so no wonder they are fast learners. But Ma’ie is special case. He’s a bit slower compared to the rest, he played a lot last night, loyar buruk, banyak cakap, asek kacau mmber2 laen, but at least, he wanted to come and learn. 🙂
The topic that I taught in this last session was Idioms. I beat my brains out to find the suitable and interesting topic for them. Since I’m not used to secondary school’s syllabus, I didn’t know what topic would catch their attention. It wasn’t so difficult actually, but I just had no interest of teaching secondary students. Bayangkan la.. Sambil reka activity, smbil merungut2. Mang la susah nk dpt idea. And that made it difficult. Fyi, last week’s session didn’t really go well for me, since I wasn’t so confident, feeling awkward and a little bit nervous. But in this class, everything went smoothly I should say. They were more friendly, I handled it well, and to my surprise, I kinda felt sad thinking that this was my last session with them.
Hey, teaching secondary students is not so bad!
And also, this week, my mighty Reds, Liverpool still rules the league, baby!!!! YNWA~~
