Morning friends. First of all,it's never too late for me to wish all my students who scored excellent results in PMR especially a string of As. I know what it feels after all the hardships and sacrifice ..I am sure your parents are really proud of u.:)

I remember when I was at your age..15!I was really active in school and I was in the athlete class. So you can imagine how busy i was.My daily routine: went to school early in the morning (SIGS), after school i went for the training in the afternoon . I reached home at 7.30pm because my school was really far. then 8pm i had to attend a tuition class. At that time, I was busy with tennis tournament MSSJ. But last minute, my dad did not allow me to join the competition. I was really frustrated.really , I mean! I always wanted to be a tennis player hehhe at that time.

Normally my parents had no issues about my sport activities ..I represented school for softball and squash tournaments as well. So, after that incident, I was really broken hearted. So I studied really really hard. I stopped joining all the activities, I seldom hung out and err dating;p, friends wont see me online (MIRC at that time;p)..after school, I spent 2-3 hours after school and read books. My tuition class ended at 10pm after that i spent another 2 hours to study until 12am.

When the result came out, i was really shocked because all the hardships were paid off. I scored straight As and my best friend scored 7As. I was really happy. What I want to share here is
Dont be sad if what you always want in life you cannot get. You must get up and strive harder. There is something for you but you have not realized yet. I always motivate my students, " Everyone deserves an A. it is the matter you want it or not".

Lastly, i want to congratulate Wee Soo Yen who scores A for Bahasa Arab PMR. I am truly amazed. So people,if she can do it, why cant you. I am sure you can master English if you're willing to invest effort,time, money ..if you want:)I told my students English is just like reciting Al Quran. If you seldom recite ..after a while, it'll be hard for you to pronounce the words. Same like English. I suggest you read a short English article every day verbally.choose your favourite 'light' article..to "soften" your tongue..You'll see the difference (because I used to do that everyday)..

Good luck and have a nice day:)

Fun vs Funny

during speaking test:

teachersyaza:ann yin,pls suggest 1 interesting place if ur pen friend wanna come here.pls state why using adjective.

advice and advise

morning everyone. how was the first task.easy or difficult? you must try.learning a language needs an effort.a lot of people they say they want to improve but they sit and do nothing.if you want to excel, you must put away the attitude ok:)

anyway today i want to explain, do you know the differences between advice and advise.as an English tutor, i find a lot of students misunderstand advice and advise.

advice (noun)-nasihat
-My mother gave me an advice before she left.

advise (verb)- menasihati
-I advise you to stop smoking

now can u see the difference?another tip is for advise (verb) , u can change it to past tense. for example: advised. however, u cannot do "adviced" right.

that's all for today.hope you can gain something from here

today's teaching

just got back from teaching.

i am so happy cos i managed to turn the class from really quiet to lively as usual:)n one reluctant student to become a happy student yeay.even though they're not my students.i have 46-year-old-housewife student.well who said age matters:)

well i admit, if you join my class, u wont have any chance to sit and relax.i will force you to open your mouth.ehehehe.. and write.that's my secret recipe in teaching:)
i do this because i love my students.. not to drill them..there is no shortcut to master in english if u don't practise it.

that's all for now..love all my students:)
