Okay, as you can see, this entry is simply dedicated to stuff related to SPM and TESL. Okay, before you all start throwing judgments towards me, I'd like to clarify that I am no EXPERT in this stuff. I am simply sharing bout what I know (and lets hope that it's right!) just for the reference of those lepasan SPM 2012 who's trying to apply for TESL.

I am a big fan of the English language, and Alhamdulillah, for SPM earlier, I managed to get an A+. Yeah, I know that it's nothing to brag about but I am really proud of it because surrounded by non-english speakers, it's such an accomplishment. So my aim for the future is to get a chance to pursue my studies on anything English-related. And TESL sounds like a nice idea considering that it can be a platform for me to improve myself and help others at the same time.

So just like others, I had to do a research on what TESL is. And to explain it to you all who's interested in it, I will dot down the points one by one (this one is for ASASI TESL in UITM)

  • Asasi TESL is more like a preparatory course as it not only take up only 2 semesters, but it also focuses on the main aspects of the English language - listening, speaking, reading, writing, as well as grammar. However, as it is still nevertheless a prepraratory teaching course (TEACHING English as a Second Language), subjects regarding Education and Malaysia is also inserted such as Malaysian Studies.

How to apply for it?
  • I wonder why you have to ask me that when the answer is simple, through UPU. Go Google it if you're that clueless about it.

The requirements: 
  • Acquire "kepujian" for either of these subjects (in SPM): Mathematics/AddMaths
  • Acquire at least an A- (in SPM) for: English
  • pass the interview and writing test
  • be a bumiputera (yeah, that's kinda biased but honestly I jus don't have a say in it so I am just gonna shut up about it and live in blissful ignorance)

The interview:
  • this one may be dreaded the most by most of you, but I'd like to assure you that it's not as bad as it seems
  • the interviewers are gonna ask you some questions (personal and not) and the good thing about it is it doesn't require much knowledge (except for a not-so-bad english)
  • don't worry if your english isn't that good, sometimes confidence can cover that
  • and if you are just like me, who gets all nervous no matter how the situation is, you still have a chance though (just be friendly and all, you'll get over it)

Okay, that's all I could share for now as I am currently trying to dive further into the TESL thing. I want it so badly but...
