Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone.  It is that time of the year to make resolutions.  Those of you who are sitting for SPM may be feeling a little nervous about 2012.  Many students have even started tuition classes way back in November.  This is how serious they are about their studies.  Many students have also asked me how to improve their English.  Let me stress once again that there is no short cut.  Keep on reading.  If you are the type that dislike reading novels, then pick up the newspaper.  Subscribe to the newspapers in your school since it is cheaper.  Or, you can share with your friends.  Read the letters to the editor daily for this is helpful in your directed writing.  Cut out articles concerning topics such as ICT, stories, social issues, environment, wildlife protection, health, teenagers and any descriptive essays.  These will serve as models for you when you write.
Finish reading your novel in January or the latest in February.  Since many of you are spending a lot of time on social network, start a group and help in each other.
Here's to another great year for this blog...looking forward to posting more entries...
