A Replacement Teacher for Next Week's Classes

Dear students,

By now most of you knew that I would not be able to go to your writing classes till the 8th of December. The operation went well and I am now recovering. However, your classes will resume and a teacher will go to class and teach you. Please go to your class, she or he will be taking attendance and make sure you do not miss any sessions. I will see you back, insyallah after eid' adha's holiday.

Madam Zubaidah.

Dear students,Sorry that I cannot come to class for your grammar presentation today, (Wednesday). Something happened and my doctor advised me not to go to work at least for today.
Well, your next assignment would be commenting on your friends' introduction. I have done one comment on Amina's introduction and I believe that you can do the same. Please include the name of the writer of the introduction, i.e. Shaipul, ... commented by, Dzulkarnain and end it by inserting your name. This will be your assignment that I would have given if I had gone to teach you today.
Please do this assignment, and make sure that you have the comment posted by Sunday, 12 noon.
Don't have too much fun without me around in Nilai. Make your grammar presentation better for next week.
Take care then...
Madam Zubaidah

Second Assignment: Advertisements Are a Good Guide for Consumers

I have to apologize to most of you whose comments in the first Assignment was accidently deleted while I was moderating them. Never mind, I have read all and thank you so much for such wonderful response. It is nice to know you all and insyallah you will get to know me too.

Here's the second exercise that you have to submit by 12 noon, Tuesday, 18 November, 2008.

Advertisements are a good guide for consumers. Do you agree?

What you have to submit is just the introduction for the essay. Make sure you do not use short forms and of course, as mentioned in class, you should not use 'I' and 'we' in your introduction.

So, I expect your assignment to reach the comment box on time.

Your teacher.

If you somehow wonder what could be the reasons people blog, here's some possible answers that you can read from this link


Some might have your own blogs and have been blogging for years and you could be better bloggers than I am, that's good meaning that is an advantage for you and me. However, for those who have not even heard of blogging, I hope that by the end of the course you will have your own personal blogs so that the passion to write good English does not stop there.

Here's another website that you can read and in this site, there are instructions on how to create your own blog.


Happy reading and tell me what you think about it.
