Be Confident to Talk English Like A Native

Nowadays, English has become a necessity to live in 5.0 society era. Many benefits can be achieved when students understand English. English can help students access more knowledge and communicate each other easily. However, many students still feel uncomfortable to talk English. They think they will make some mistakes when they talk in English. This problem can be solved only by encouraging and motivating them to speak English.

SMPIT Al Haraki conducted a program to give the students a chance to be more confident to speak English with an English native speaker. This program is called Talkative program. It was held on 21st of February 2022 until 4th of March 2022 through Zoom Meeting. Hopefully, the native speaker could encourage students to talk English.

In this occasion, SMPIT Al Haraki was in collaboration Mrs. Helena Mackay, a Scottish from Fluent Aaron’s English Organization. She taught 12 classes within a week and also a class of teachers and staff. Every level had different topic of talkative, among others: 7th graders learned how to tell the students’ daily activities, 8th graders learned how to tell what is happening around us, level 9 practiced how to be a news anchor and delivering their own report text, and the teachers and staff learned how to ask and give road directions. The students and teachers not only practiced speak English but also write good sentences and paragraphs. Mrs. Mackay also prepared some games for every class, so the class run very interactive and interesting.

Hopefully, this program can give students and teachers motivation to speak in English with confidence not only in the English class, but also in their daily activity.
