This week, all the students are preparing for their final exam at the center. After six months of classes, there are many things they have to learn and review for the material that they have learned in class. The students frequently shared and discussed among themselves and with their teachers at the center.
They normally carry out a reading activity during their leisure time after finishing their regular class at school. We have many kinds of English books and storybooks that the students read. They love reading. Reading can help to motivate and help them to build a habit so that they can be good readers in the future. By reading English books, the students can learn many words and it can increase their knowledge about world.
This reading activity should be maintained at the center to encourage them to be more active and critical thinkers. By reading books, they can obtain information that is very useful and expand their knowledge as well. Study groups are also frequently held. This is when students can discuss and share with others about what they have read and gained from the books.
