|Kang Guru Connection Bulletin||May-June 2005
The KGRE Teacher Workshop in Madura held on March 31st, 2005 was organised by the KGRE Connection Club # 019 - the Pioneer English Club based at Pon Pes Al-Amien in Prenduan. Around 120 teachers attended. Many of them were actually ‘teachers in training’. Many thanks to Pak Suryadi and his organising team for their help and hard work. Margaret and John, teacher trainers (ISELP and AVI) from nearby Pon Pes Annuqayah, Guluk Guluk were there to assist Kevin and contributed a lot to the success of the day.
Later that evening Kevin attended a student meeting in Sumenep organised by ECC Sumenep. It is not a KGRE club yet but might be soon. Pak Suryadi was once again ‘in charge’ of the event and did a great job. There were 250 students ranging from SD level right through to university level including many KGCC members from other clubs in the area. John and Margaret also attended. There were performances, lots of questions and special Madurese food. The dialogue was a little difficult because audience members were quite excited and noisy. However, the many questions asked were terrific.
On Friday morning Kevin returned to Pon Pes Al-Amien in Prenduan for
the KGRE Connection Club Get Together. Over 400 club members were there
and not just from the KGCC network either. Other local clubs were invited
to participate and that’s a great way to promote KGRE. The KGCC
was represented by KGCC # 027 MaDia English Club based in Pamekasan and
KGCC # 019 Pioneer English Club. The members were great fun and besides
KGRE Quiz activities (see winners below) we also had performances from
club members to watch. It was a very entertaining morning and once again
thanks must go to Pak Suryadi and his team of organisers. The club members
were wonderful -so friendly and fun loving.
PT. Star Indonesia International invited us to be the part of the team organising some English activities during the expo.
These activities were to attract as many people as possible, including students. There were ten foreign countries which took part in the expo such as, Australia, Malaysia, the UK, Singapore, America etc. We were excited because we were the only English speaking club involved in the prestigious event. In short, we did three interesting activities during the expo started from April 7th - 10th. They were English Fun Written Test, Talents & Personalities, and a Fun Game.
The test was all about general knowledge in English. Of course those who lack an interest in reading found the test difficult. The participants who followed this test were professionals and high school students. Each participant received a certificate from the organising committee.
This game has to do with explaining and guessing in English. We put them in pairs. We got participants to introduce themselves to their partner sitting right next to them. Then we gave each of them a typical card which we designed with Kang Guru logo behind it. This was one of our ways to promote KGRE. For more information contact us!
