NSTP, Forest City conduct English workshop for Johor SPM students
Over 30 Form Four and Form Five students from Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Tanjung Adang, Gelang Patah attended a Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) English workshop conducted by the New Straits Times Press (M) Berhad today.
The one-day workshop was sponsored by Forest City, via Country Garden Pacific View Sdn Bhd, as part of its corporate social responsibility programme (CSR).
During the workshop, students recapped basic grammar rules before being guided on how to tackle the writing portion of the English exam paper. There was also a session highlighting some of the common errors in writing.
Forest City director of strategy Ng Zhu Hann said education is important for an individual to go far in life.
“Knowledge is key to progressing forward, especially by learning the English language from a young age. It is a global language that will provide an international platform for students in the future.”
“I am unable to do well during examinations because of the grammar errors I make. The grammar slot at the beginning of the workshop was very helpful for me. I will be more careful and observe my grammar, especially in essay writing,” said Form Five student Siti Hasrina Abdul Muiz.
Seven schools in Gelang Patah received NSTP’s education programmes sponsored by Forest City this year.
