reading is a good habit

assalammualaikum w.b.t my dear students
i know some of you HATE reading
and it won't just come naturally if I don't make it compulsory for all of you
still remember the NILAM programme that we used to have back in school?
so that is basically the idea
BUT what you have to do this semester is slightly different and a bit more challenging
you need to read, and think than review/critiques 
i don't mind how many pages you wish to critique as long as the reading process is progressing

so let say the first week:
you post the TITTLE and what is your EXPECTATION regarding the book
or maybe WHY you choose that book? 
you know i'm not that stupid or loser or innocent right??
duhhh -,-'

so the second week:
you might want to share what you have read.
maybe you want to critique on the first few pages on what you have read
eg: tell about the character, is it a boring story? is it interesting and such!
remmember: SKY IS THE LIMIT
so you can write about ANYTHING or CONDEMNED on anything regarding what you've read peeps! isn't it fun? :)

so GOOD LUCK my dear students

and by the way,
this won't benefit me AT ALL
this will help you to improve YOUR english!
hence, it is up to you than!

so at least by right this week, you should AT LEAST have one entry!
enjoy reading and reviewing peeps!


hello and hye everyone

*assalammualaikum students ku :)
<3 xoxo

how i mark?

im going to mark based on 3 different aspects:

  • Content: whther your essay have points or not, or you just simply write without any points at all? make sure your paragraph talk about what you have written in your thesis statements, and topic sentence.use WH questions or '1Husband, 4Wives formula' to help you to generate your explanation on your paragraph.if you manage to write 350 words and above, im sure ull have plenty marks for content as well
  • language: grammar, structure of your sentence
  • organization: you have thesis statemnt? topic sentence? conclusion? do you know how to organize your points? are your points everywhere or it is nicely structured and organized?

how to write good essay?

i've taught this so many times in class,but its ok, im here to teach.hoping that this simple notes will be able to help each and everyone of u for tomorow.
and lets break our legs n prepare for ur paper let me start my tutorial :) 
these points were derived based on the common questions that most of u asked:

1. How to write a good thesis statement?

this is the example topic:
reading is the best way to improve university students' proficiency level in you agree with the statement? state your reasons.

  • NEVER write"I agree with the statement that university students should inculcate reading habit to improve their proficiency level in english because point 1, point 2, point 3."  to show that you are agree or "I disagree with the statement that university students should inculcate reading habit to improve their proficiency level in english since point 1, point 2, point 3". why? NEVER USE I/YOU! so if you want to show that you are agree, just simple write "reading is the best way to improve university students' proficiency level in english because point 1, point 2, point 3." or to show that you are disagree : "reading is NOT the best way to improve university students' proficiency level in english because point 1, point 2, point 3" I CAN INTERPRET YOUR OPINION FRM THAT SENTENCE. 
  • HOW TO WRITE THESIS STATEMNT? this is just a suggestion ( u can always manipulate it n this is just a guide in case if u are blur, and blank when u want to write your thesis statement). take title+ 3 points. eg: reading is the best way to improve university students' proficiency in you agree with the statement? state your reasons. take the title and only add 3 controlling ideas in it. -> reading is the best way to improve university students' proficiency in english because 1,2,3. but be creative, you can also manipulate the sentence (start withe the adjective -remmber your muet book when you want to write your graph?-) "in order to improve university students' proficiency level in english, they need to read a lot." or (start with the noun/subject) "university students need to inculcate reading habit to improve their proficiency level in english language."it is from the same topic! I JUST change the order and it looks different but grammatically correct. try it! :) 
  • always put your thesis statemnt at the END OF YOUR INTRODUCTORY PARAGRAPH.
2. introductory paragraph:
  • always starts with GENERAL IDEA, and ends with THESIS STATEMENT for example; 
     (GENERAL)"A dog is man's best friend." That common saying may contain some truth, but dogs are not the only animal friend whose companionship people enjoy. For many people, a cat is their best friend. (THESIS STATEMENTDespite what dog lovers may believe, cats make excellent housepets as they are good companions (POINT 1), they are civilized members of the household (POINT 2), and they are easy to care for.(POINT 3)
  • NEVER start your essay with thesis statement. Y? because you won't have more things to talk about after that. you have limit your introductory paragraph. trust me! you can try it, you'll end up including your POINTS and EXPLANATION for in your introductory paragraph!
3.  body paragraph
  • ALWAYS start with your TOPIC SENTENCE. apply the same skill that you use in order to write your thesis statement: title + 1 point   for example;  reading is the best way to improve university students' proficiency in english since through reading they can increase so many aspects in the language.or change it, (be creative) university students should read a lot in order to improve their level of proficiency in english. or there are many ways to improve students' proficiency level in english, but reading is the best way since students can increase so many aspects in the language. 
  • after your points, make sure you explain your points; this is where you use your "1Husband and 4 Wives' formula or WH questions. How? What? When? Who? Where? that can help you to explain your essay. include example as well. for example:
   In the first place, people enjoy the companionship of cats since cats are affectionate. (TOPIC SENTENCE(WHY?)They will snuggle up and ask to be petted, or scratched under the chin.  Who can resist a purring cat? If they're not feeling affectionate, cats are generally quite playful. (WHAT?) They love to chase balls and feathers, or just about anything dangling from a string. (WHO?)They especially enjoy playing when their owners are participating in the game. Contrary to popular opinion, cats can be trained. Using rewards and punishments, just like with a dog, a cat can be trained to avoid unwanted behavior or perform tricks. therefore, cats is a better companionship compared to dogs because of their affection. (CONCLUSION)
  • NEVER forget your conclusion for each body paragraph. this is to help you to write a better paragraph
4. Conclusion
  • start with paraphrasing of your THESIS STATEMENT. example: 
  Cats are low maintenance (point 1), civilized companions (point 2)and easy to be taken of (point 3). therefore, cats are the best choice of house pets compared to any other pets. (<-paraphrasing)  People who have small living quarters or less time for pet care should appreciate these characteristics of cats. However, many people who have plenty of space and time still opt to have a cat because they love the cat personality.  (OPINION) In many ways, cats are the ideal housepet.

5. the most important thing: NEVER FORGET LINKING WORDS!!!! there are many examples that you can find here: 

6. for essay like this, u usually use PRESENT TENSE. is (english IS), are (there ARE many advantages), has (learning english HAS many benefits), have (university students have their own way to learn English), do es(English DOES NOT need to be memorized), do (Students DO NOT care about the importnace of learning English). 

7. keep your sentence SHORT and EASY to understand. that will help you to control your grammatical error.! dont forget your SUBJECT, VERB! SUBJECT VERB AGREEMENT! 

im sleepy, i kow this entry is a very last minute reminder.but hope this can help u tomorrow. btw students, SLEEP WELL!!! don't come with sleepy head, you won't be able to write 350 words essay!

p/s: for reading comprehension, do apply SKIM and SCAN to save your time!
