The first activity, the snowball fight, I actually got the idea of the game the minute Mdm Raha mention of this game. It is not the same old boring way to conduct an ice breaking sesion. In short, it was a creative way of knowing people.
As for the 30 second talk, I thought I could not talk for 30 second,but clearly what I thought was wrong, I instead have too much to talk about. Through this activity, we will be able to practice to talk in front of a smaller group of people.Then eventually,we could familiarise ourselves to talk in front of a bigger group of people.
Finally, the speed talk, again another interesting, fun and one of a kind activity to build our confidence in talking or speaking in English.In all, I enjoyed all the three activities and I do hope in the future we will do this activities again

Honestly, this class is my favourite compared to other ones. At first week I thought "oh no, we need to study grammar again" or "Oh my, more letter writing?" but i was totally suprised by those activities that was conducted by the lecturer, it was fun, easygoing and enjoyable...
I can't say much in detail about my opinion in those activites, so I'll just summarize it if you don't mind:

Snowball fight: It improves my throwing skills, unfortunately I got my own paper!! I don't mind about it cause I changed with my friend next to me.

30 seconds talk: As the anoymous said, I can't belive there's actually soo many to talk about in 30 seconds!! But so little time, that really opened my mind about sharing your point of view with others.

Speed talk: this one is a bit longer, I'm soo worried if I get some topics that I can't elaborate about, even 30 seconds preperation was not enough... but the comments written by the group members was really helpful.. especially to detect your weakness and yet thinking the ways to improve it.

Well that's all I can say for now, I'm preparing my presentation for tommorow so, bye..

Actually, i attend the class of technical english can be more relax and no need to be more serious. It is because Madam always give us to play a game.
I like the three game that Madam given.
Firstly, the "snowball fight". We use a different way to introduce ourselves and know the people.
Second is "30 second talk". We need to present a topic in front of group member at 30 second. I think this is a good way to practise ourselves to present in front of the people. It also a good starting to practice ourselves to do a presentation.
Thirdly, "speed talk". this activity is funny. We need to speak quickly to anwer the question and also ask the question. It can build our confident that we also can speak in english.
All of three activity can bring me a lot of aid. So, i like the three activity. (PB08044)

Honestly,i like the "snowball fight" more than "30 second talk" and "speed talk".

The "snowball fight" is a funny activity. It is a special and creative way to introdure ourselves. We also have a opporturnity to communicate with people. Through the three question, we can more understand about their backgroud , favourite and hobby. And also make a friend with them.
On the other hand, the "30 second talk" and "speed talk" also given a lot of aid to me. For example,we can build the confident, practise and present in front the people and learn to manage the time when we give a presentation. But i still arrange it on second and third. I'm so sorry...

first day in the class,i was impressed by the ice breaking ceremony...
the snow ball fight was a very brilliant idea...
even though i feel very shy to make friend with others the first time but then it turns out that creating friends is a lot fun than creating enemy of course...
huhu
talk talk talk..
the activity realized me where's my level in a fast speak..
sadly i'm not good enough in fast speak..
well i'm still here and theres more to learn in the future..
thats all for now ok bye and happy holiday ...

in all activities, i really nervous and afraid because, i dont know how to speak well in english. i really weak in English and sometimes, it will make me tension or bad mood when i attend the english class. but i really like you,Madam Raha. dont worry. even, i dont like English, but, the activities make me fall in love with English. everyone had agree that i'm not good in english. but , i will not let anything break my spirit. everyday , i learn english because i REALISE that English is the best subject that i should learn.

The first one is snow ball fight,which is the new way of ice breaking activity. In this session ,i've learnt about knowing someone or more new person in my life,where all the person is now already became my classmate and my friend..This activity encourage us to talk with someone where actually i dont know about them...and also try to make me open my mouth for seeking the answer..
The second activity is 30 second talk,which is done in our class,then sitting in the divided group.In the group, we need to play a simple game.In this part,i'm not really feel nervous because i only talk infront of small group but it also teach us the step of talking to the public.So this 30 second talk is try to getting us become more talktive..
Lastly.the speed talk activity is actuaaly the continued of the 30 talk where here we should spoke bravely,but for me, in this part we cannot prepared all the content and enough information because we only have a time to talk...
So far,all the activity that have been done by Mdm Raha is very helpful...Thank Madam.....

salam.....

what i want to share about this class?
what i know is this class is all about talking,talking and talking.
from the first class when we play the snowball fight, it is the interesting activity to break the ice between all the class members..
even all of us look strange to one another but whe have to talk to know the about our partners..
for the 30 second talk also need us to use all the idea taht we have to talk about the topic that we got..
so it practicable for us to think in a short time then delivers all the idea that we have..
the speed talk activity is also same like the 30 second talk which is need us think and talk..
anywhere all this activity are very useful and help us to developed our self confident to speak in public.
maybe it is late to give comment about this class but i always remember better late than never..
so in my opinion all of us have to work together to make this class more enjoyable and interesting..
that's all from me.

Actually, I like the three activities like snowball fight,30 second talk, and speed talk.Firstly, I was very excited to start the snowball fight game because i never play the game like this.I,m enjoyed when to do this game.This game make me learn how to talk without a fear and not confident.
Second game is 30 second talk.From this game I can know that I can speak in eglish very well.I think bofore of this i,m so afraid and not confident to speak thats why I can't speak to audience.I can speak clearly.
Lastly is speed talk game.This game make me try to speak although iI know that my vocabe not right.
This activities make me learn how to speak in english without fell a fear when I'm talk to audience.Then I can fixed my weakness and my ability.
that all from me today.
thanks madam Raha...

The first activity was the snowball fight.This game was interstig because i turn to be a primary school girl.For your information it was my first class in this University. I didnt have friends yet. From this game i have get many friends.

The 30 second talk was great because after muet exam i talk lessly in english.This talk has made me brave from before.


The speed talk was funny because everyone was talking too fast.Some was pretenting like talking.

Assalammualaikum wbt

Actually at the first time i thought about this class can be bore. But my expectation was changed because i really enjoy with this class activities. For examples,activities of "snowball fight" are really enjoyable and interesting so that everyone enjoy their self. The second activities which is "30 second talk" are really interesting and make me practise hardly to maximise that 30 second. "speed talk" a little bit funny because i need speak faster eventhough i'm not sure what was i talking about, funny right?? Hereby, i learnt that i need more motivate to make myself more confidient as well and there is so many way to improve confidient levels.
Thats all
