ETA (English Teaching Assistant), well yeah, my school has ETA from America, Miss Kelley. Yeah, it's great you know when the ETA remembers my name and she pronounces my name like, ONE-KNOW. Cool.
So, this time there's a programme where several girls (more than 10 actually) from form 4 go to a school (SK Padang Landak) to teach the kids about English. Mostly, it's not ALL about English, because the KIDS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN. So, yeah, the 'girls' (I mean, us) have to make English seems FUN. But, it is FUN indeed.
My team got to teach the kids from STANDARD 6. Okay, I was nervous, like seriously. But, it was turned out to be pretty cool.
At first, when we entered their class, they seemed QUIET. We all have to speak English, and the kids seemed hard to understand what we're trying to say. Yeah, the kids weren't that good in English, so that's why we were there, helping them. But, after 30 minutes, they started to become super hyperactive and super friendly. And it was great! It all thanks to a FUN game that Atikah provided.
The kids were totally sweet. They're not even RUDE like kids nowadays. I mean, the juniors. No offense. They approached us when we were eating after the class over and they ate with us as well. At the end of the class, they kissed our hands. And that's soooo polite and sweet. Plus, they even asked our phone numbers! lol. And I still remember one of the girls helped me holding my water bottle because I was struggling with speakers. She just happened to volunteer to help me. I guess that's so nice.
Let's feast your eyes with these cute kids. Well, they're not kids, they're 12. But still, yeah, kids, I assume.
