Busy April

April is an extremely busy month for Horne Learning Services. There are a number of things going on for us including a couple of new ventures. 

We are teaching English to school-aged children each week as well as continuing training the Vistana Hotel staff once a week. 

On to the new ventures now . . .

We will be holding an English Seminar for adults on 1st May, 2012 at Vistana Hotel Kuantan. This is a fresh idea and we have been busy coming up with the material to share for that seminar. We have decided on covering the 5 key points which can be found on the page above this post, as a foundation. We are now hurriedly advertising this seminar to as many people as possible, with particular attention to those working in serving the public.

I've also been working hard preparing a course for adult English classes at our home, which began earlier this week.

We are trying to be well-prepared for the future, and that means working our socks off now! In addition to writing lesson plans for all 48 weeks of this year (minus 5th weeks), I am now composing a collection of short stories for reading exercises. Each story has a set of comprehension questions and points for discussion. I think it's important that we write these stories ourselves instead of copying material from somewhere else. It becomes our very own and unique to Horne Learning Services.

Horne Learning Services is also lending a hand to Vistana Hotel in preparing quiz questions and other activities for the hotel's annual English Quiz for 8 staff departments.

April has been and will continue to be the busiest month for Horne Learning Services to date. It's a great challenge, but I wouldn't have it any other way!
