Anyway, I originally intended to write accounts of my experience during my SBE or ROS as it's called here, but that didn't work out too well I guess. For one the internet connection here can be really trying, and when it's slow, it's really, really slow. For another, it was quite a bother to come home and write everything, and I write such long accounts that it probably looks boring.
This time, however, I am determined to make a good comeback. Teacher Mayah is back! That reminds me of what one of my lecturers told us in class sometime ago. She said that it upsets her when people do not use English properly, one such example being the use of 'Teacher + name' that English teachers allow their students to call them at school. This is actually a direct translation from 'Cikgu + name' for example Cikgu Siti. Translate that into English and it becomes Teacher Siti. Tada! My lecturer says that we should be asking them to call us using proper handles, such as Miss Siti, or Puan Siti.
Still, even though she is probably right, I must say that this particular issue does not really bother me that much. For one I think that 'Teacher Siti' sounds much more friendly and teacher-ish, and even though it's not correct English, it rather suits the Malaysian school setting. I don;t know, that's what I think.
However, I guess when I go to school next semester I shall have to follow orders. Besides, lecturers are lecturers and they know what they're saying. They've years and years of experience and students should respect that, not question every single thing that they say.
On that, here is Miss Mayah a.k.a. Teacher Mayah signing off for now. Jazakallahukhairan kathiira!
