A simple yet historical closing ceremony of the ‘Wow My English’ program was held at AMC College earlier today. The program was a two-month program designed for the SPM leavers to equip themselves with a better English language conversational skills including speech, forum and drama presentations. The course is divided into five levels, ranging from level 1 to level five and entry level is based on the participants pre-test.
A participant, Kingsley Izekiel Sikawah (17) of SMK Bahang stated that he felt so lucky to be accepted to join the program as his waiting for his SPM result is filled with valuable activities. “Even though I converse in English language with my friends and family members at home, there are still many skills that I learned here and among the skills that I am really great full to have picked up are the ability to read the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) to further improve my English pronunciation and the opportunity learn the Linking and Connectives sound as they really helped to further improve my fluency”, stated Kingsley.
Another participant, Siti MaySarrah Bt. Mohd Nasir (17) of Sekolah Menengah Agama Kota Kinabalu expresses her thankfulness to AMC College for the experience she gets throughout the course. She further stated, “I was always not confident with my English pronunciation as English is considered a third language for me. I converse in Malay and Dusun often but after joining this course, I am more confident to converse in English because now I can read the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) and perhaps even can do the transcription. I think I am very much confident to converse in English now as the Drama class helped me a lot, and the way we learned Grammar here is really different from school and I can understand the rules and usage much better”.
