I have been invited by Universiti Malaysia Kelantan to participate in a project called International English Language Camp for Staff from February 9 to 12, 2014 at the City Campus of UMK in Pelalang Chepa. This program is an initiative introduced by UMK and PSU Pattani. There are only 9 of administrativr staff from the President’s Office of PSU and another 10 staff from the Language Center of UMK. The main purpose of this program is to provide an intensive workshop of the staff both PSU and UMK in practising English especially for English for office staff.
The main organizer is the International Office of PSU Pattani and Language Center of UMK.
I think this a model of enhancing English ability for staff members to expose to the target language. The activity does not happen only in the classroom but it includes excursion to some tourist attracts in Kelantan.
I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Prof. Farok bin Zakaria, the languagr center director and Assoc.Prof.Yah, English Department head, in inviting me to witness this activity.
Actually, there are many more activities operating by both UMK and PSU for the last four years.
This is my first time coming to UMK this year. I can see many changes in the landscape of the City Campus. UMK has 3 campuses dotted in the state of Kelantan, namely the City campus, Bachok and Jeli campuses. I have visited all three during the last three years.
