Student-Ltyan is lively and vigorous. Therefore, the school incorporates the ‘Multi-intelligence Lessons’ for every single student in the timetable. It is held on Friday afternoon. For P.1 and P.2 students, they need to stay in the classroom to wait for the teachers and they can learn different topics in different weeks such as music, games, visual arts, self-discipline, PE, storytelling and S.T.E.M. For P.3 to P.6 students, they have to go to the venues by themselves and I am so glad to see students behaving well and being fast when they go to the venues. They also have different topics such as Creative Chinese Writing, Olympic Math, Chinese Drama, Digital Agent, Chinese Dance, Chess, Adventure, Little Reporter, Rummikub, Recorders, Pastel Painting, Clay, English Chef, Board Games, Story Presentation, Putonghua and English Ambassadors. The school has arranged lots of activities to our students after school and on Saturday, such as volleyball, basketball, Taekwondo, track and field, Table-tennis, Magic, Scout, Guitar, Percussion, Roller-skating, Cartoon and Comic, Chinese Zither, Decoupage Art, Djembe, English or Putonghua Choral Speaking, Chinese or English Drama, Gymnastics, Choir, Dodgebee, Chinese Martial Art, Violin, Mini-tennis, Lawn Bowls, Rope Skipping, Abacus, English Cambridge, Juggle, Balloon-twisting, Badminton, Trumpet and so on. We need to show our gratitude to the members of ECA group as they try their best to do thoughtful and thorough arrangements.
When we talk about the NET teacher, it makes me think about myself, how I learnt English. My English Teacher Miss Wendy Lam always used various methods with interesting content to encourage me to learn English when I was in Form 3. Also, she could speak very fluent English and I started to enjoy learning English. I read more English books, listened to English songs and watched English movies and TV episodes. When I promoted to Form 4, my English teacher was Miss Mable Ng who was the Discipline Mistress. She had a lot of techniques to teach us how to apply English. More importantly, she spoke perfect English with British accent and it made me push myself to enhance my English proficiency. I practiced my English through doing a lot of supplementary exercises to improve my grammar. I watched my TV episode to imitate the way foreigners speak with the accent. All these practices made me improve my English a lot in a short period of time. Indeed, the huge barricade of learning language is not to be afraid of making mistakes and we should learn from the mistakes. Some of my friends (even some teachers in US when I visited there) thought I used to study aboard as they found my spoken English is fluent without any influence by my mother-tongue language. Listening to more English songs helps train the muscles around the mouth and you can articulate the sound easily. Also, speaking English is using completely different protolanguage to Chinese. We need to use different muscles and make different mouth shape to articulate the sounds even there is any sound in one of the protolanguage. Sometimes, you have not to be shy to read a bit exaggerated as you can easily figure out how to make the sound clear. Rome was not built in one day which is exactly the same with the theory of learning language. You have to keep on practicing with back and forth.
