Using computers in Language Learning?

Posted by nuruliman45 on August 17, 2010

In this last semester of mine, I’m taking an interesting course: TSL641 – Computer-assisted Language Learning.

Seriously, I’m bad in computer skills…well, not all that bad.  If I was so awful, I wouldn’t be able to come up with this blog, would I…? hehe 😉

This course is all about how we can benefit the computer – Word processor, powerpoint, the internet, recordings, and so much more – to help students learn English in and outside the classroom.

It’s called CALL (Computer-Assisted Language Learning)

My classmates and I all have to create a blog especially on our insights of the subject…Yeah, quite a hassle to have to istiqamah with another blog…but I guess all the better…hope it will help me in my final exam nanti…

do check my blog out! .. who knows, you might learn something. huhu 🙂

ENJOYeee! 😉

SEX EDUCATION: Is Malaysia Ready for it?

Posted by nuruliman45 on August 16, 2010

Among pioneer programmes of Sex Ed launched
[March 20, 2010, at a Community Rehabilitation centre in Selayang (PDK Selayang]

SEX ED:  This long overdue issue has reached its peak this year.

With all these baby dumping and pre marital sex cases occurring all over Malaysia, the Government has taken the initiative to actually start on providing awareness to the youth about sex.   OK, remember, we’re talking about education here.

Many say “yes” too fast in the implementation of Sex Education.  But have people actually looked into the real factors of why such mishaps are happening nowadays?

“The young is jahil about what will happen if they have sex, that’s why they do it.”

please! that’s a big lie..just bogus.  Whoever doesn’t know that pregnancy is a result of it is really lame.

Okay, back to what I was saying… now, the government has started its pilot study – testing out the new module the National Population and Family Development Board (LPPKN) have come up with.

The module’s called:  I’m in Control

It has started its test round in 5 schools, covering about 308 Form Four students in five urban and rural schools situated in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Penang, Pahang and Kelantan.

Look back at the module!!

Before we – parents, teachers, educators, sisters, brothers – agree on implementing this sex ed led by the government, let’s all look into it first.  Examine whether the contents in the module is enough to give fill awareness to the youth.  Or, would it give a negative effect.

Sex Ed is a good idea, but depends on its delivery.

We have to make sure the delivery of it involves spiritual development of the young, only then would it not be a waste for our young.  Without that awareness would they only experiment what they’ve learned in sex ed.

Now, why don’t you guys look at the pic i got above (more pics:) …what get’s me heaped up and feel unsatisfied with the module is that it’s conducted in a coed enironment – both girls and boys discussing together about all this.

HELLO!  What idiot proposed this!  kata nak efektif, tapi nak bagi kesedaran, nak suruh tanya soalan..mana nak jadi, buat cmtu!!

…ok..my Malay came out…

again people, look back at what sex ed module is to be proposed, only then agree.  UNDERSTAND?

Ramadhan: Am I fit for this month???

Posted by nuruliman45 on August 14, 2010

The great month has return.  alhamduliLLAH, subhanALLAH,… thank you ALLAH for meeting me up again with YOUR wonderful month…

Although now busy as a last semester student (yeah, last semester dude! 😉 ), but I hope to get higher grades in this year’s University of Ramadhan.  Like any one else, I have my new resolutions wanting to fulfill in this year’s Ramadhan.

A year can sure mature you.  In fact, SO many things have happened in the past year.  One of the most obvious was my enlightening experience being a trainee teacher.  Yup, this opened my eyes that I’m no little adolescent anymore.  I’m an adult (haha, can’t believe I’m saying this)…  yeah, REALLY felt the responsibility feeling heap up during my training.

Other things occurred which is about to change my life (only certain people know what that is, hehe)…Yup, all the better.

With all this happening, I hope it all to shed me a total and wholesome feeling of dependence to ALLAH.  I feel that the further I go in my life, the more decisions I have to make.  BIG decisions – what am I to do once I’ve finished my final exam of my final semester, where I should apply for work., what’s going to happen next year as a fresh graduate.

Thus, should make me more submit to The Creator.

May ALLAH help me make this month a better month…the best among the rest.  Help me in my ibadah.  Help me in my mujahadah…

“Ya ALLAH, help me be closer to YOU, help me in my jihad to increase my good deeds, especially in this month which YOU made rich with YOUR barakah and maghfirah.  What a shame it would be if I turned this year’s Ramadhan worst than last year’s.  Ya ALLAH, don’t let that happen…don’t let that happen, O ALLAH.  Verily, I would be in lost.  Do help me be a better servant of YOURs…AMEEN ya RABB… “

Listen to this nasheed about Ramadhan…real cool..
