The Centre for English Language and Foundation Education (CELFE) recently hosted 24 undergraduates from Hanyang University, South Korea who were selected to participate in a 2-week English Winter Programme 2019 at the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus. All the participants were accompanied by Prof. Kim Sung Yeon, the Chair of the Department of English Education in the College of Education.

The classroom activities carried out centered around Listening & Note-taking skills, Discussion strategies, as well as Presentation skills to strengthen the participants’ study skills and improve participants’ oral communication skills. During the weekends, the participants were enlightened by our local lifestyle after visiting some of Malaysia’s famous tourist attraction such as Batu Caves, where they caught a glimpse of the Hindu devotees performing their acts of penance, self-mortification or thanksgiving while carrying the kavadi, and Central Market, in which the participants adored the work of henna art.

On the following weekend, the participants also visited Pachitan Homestay that is located at Port Dickson where they clothed themselves in traditional Malay attire and indulged in mouth-watering local delicacies during their stay with the local families in the village. They enjoyed learning the art of making ketupat alongside with playing traditional musical instruments and batik painting. Local grown fruits such as rambutans and coconuts were also savoured by the participants.
