Autumn comes to bring light wind along which dispels hot summer. It is also a sign of a new school year of all students in the country in general and students of faculty of foreign languages in particular. To mix with the jubilant atmosphere of the opening day, the editorial board decided to release “FFL magazine special edition” on this September.

students when teaching, which helps their lectures become more interesting. The biggest opportunity is that students will be exposed to many different cultures and communicate with foreign experts who are teaching at the school. The faculty trains a lot of different language majors such as English Education, English Language, Chinese Education, RussianEnglish Education, French-English Languages…. Through learning at school, the students can get knowledge about culture of these countries without going abroad. On the other hand, there are many scholarships, study abroad for students who have outstanding achievements. Annually, the School of Foreign Languages realizes student exchange programs to study, research and practice in some universities in China, Russia and Thailand.

With the opportunities above, students at Course 36, are expected to become comprehensive students of the School of Foreign Languages.

New report Full-moon night in 2013 Second part is music exchange. Children enjoyed the interesting songs and dances, especially, they had chances to show their voice by singing songs they like most and then they received gifts from Ms. Hang Nga. This festival became more and more wonderful with foreign teachers’ participation. They were friendly and humorous when they sang Vietnamese songs and shared their feelings with children. Although Halloween festival is for children in their country, Mid-Autumn Festival for children in Vietnam left deep impression in their mind

Joining the jubilant atmosphere of the Mid-Autumn Festival, the most exciting annual festival for children in over the country, The School of Foreign Languages held "full-moon night in 2013" for the children of the officials and staff of lectures of the School in Hall A in the evening on September 16th 2013. The children had a meaningful and fun Mid-Autumn Festival at the School with many activities. Firstly, they were retold about the origin of Mid-Autumn Festival and the legend of “Cuoi” and “Ms. Hang Nga”. With the sweet voices and good performances of students, they made children excited with details of the legend. Children are impressed by cute images of “Cuoi” and Ms. Hang Nga’s beauty. Both of them were so friendly that they always smiled brightly with children. Therefore children continuously raised their hand to talk and dance with “Cuoi” and “Ms. Hang Nga”.

The participation of foreign teachers Finally, the most attractive parts were lion dance, lantern parade and then dealing out mid-autumn festival with cakes and fruits. Lion dance is an important activity in the full-moon night. Two colorful lions danced around the hall attracting children by their twinkling eyes. After that, children carried their lanterns, sang and went around the school following the lions. The bustling sound of drums made the atmosphere of the Mid Autumn night noisier than ever before. When the sound of drum stopped, children turned back to the hall where trays of fruits and cakes were waiting them to enjoy. The full-moon night ended with the sweet flavor of moon cakes. The “Full-moon night 2013” at the School of Foreign Languages took place in the joyful, warm atmosphere that was full of love and laugh of children. Not only kids but adults also shared the joy and happiness in that night. Through this festival, parents have chance to express their love, care, and the responsibility to their children. Besides, it also encourages the children to study hard to become good children of the family, the school and Uncle Ho

New report CEC in Quyet Thang secondary school

From June, 1st 2013 to July, 20th 2013, Community English Club - CEC (The School of Foreign Languages, Thai Nguyen University) implemented successfully the voluntary campaign “Teaching English to the Disadvantaged students at Quyet Thang lower secondary school”.

Where CEC set foot in. Quyet Thang lower secondary school lies about 6 kilometers to the West of Thai Nguyen city center. Although this school is not too far from city center, it belongs to a rural area with many difficulties. Therefore, students in this school are under limited learning conditions compared with students at the same age in city center. Outstanding activities implemented The voluntary group includes 24 volunteers who are of great active, enthusiastic and responsible for club’s activities. Moreover, they had enough competence and experience to work as student-teachers to teach and carry out activities for students at grade 6. Before implementing the program, all volunteers experienced a training course lasting 1 week to gain necessary skills and appropriate teaching methods.. During the voluntary campaign at Quyet Thang lower secondary school, many meaningful topic-based lessons and useful outdoor activities were carried out with nearly 85 students at grade 6 involved, for examples: topics about family, school, hobbies, dreams, etc. Furthermore, with a view to creating a natural-speaking environment for students, volunteers also taught English through songs, games, dramas, videos, which helped students learned English in the most interesting and natural way. A number of learning aids such as: pens, notebooks, colored-pens, etc were given to students. Besides, volunteers also spent time editing 85 textbooks used as main teaching and learning materials. On the closing day of the campaign, CEC awarded encouraging gifts for 15 students who performed well and got good results during the course. It indeed stimulated students’ learning spirit to achieve more in the new school year. What CEC creates The voluntary program “Teaching English to the Disadvantaged students in rural area of Thai Nguyen” implemented by Community English Club, has created a sound environment for students to play and study English effectively in the summer time. After a short course, students can make simple conversations in English about their family, school, hobbies, dreams, etc. Furthermore, their vocabulary about familiar topics also increased dramatically. Besides, this program also provided CEC’s members with valuable chances to apply what they studied at school into the real context. The attempt of all volunteers was highly appreciated by the headmaster of Quyet Thang secondary school. The 2013 summer voluntary campaign has gained expected success. In order to maintain good results and build up the stability for the program, we schedule many extra curriculums and back-to-school supports such as donating to the student encouraging fund and organizing English speaking contest for students here when the new school year starts.

English PREPARING & TEST-TAKING STRATEGIES As far as you know, IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is one of the most popular certificates that English learners want to take. They plan to do this test for many reasons: getting a highly paid job, applying for scholarship, studying abroad, immigration, etc. No matter what purposes are, candidates have to plan carefully to win the test. IELTS is considered a hard nut. Therefore, learning experience from former test takers is useful for candidates who are on the preparing process for it. Today, we sit down with a graduate Ms. Ngan Tran who has just obtained band score 7 in IELTS a few months ago. She is going to share with us some strategies during the preparing and test – taking processes. Of four sections in IELTS: listening, speaking, reading and writing; which one do you think is the most challenging ? NT: Among four linguistic skills that I was examined, Speaking is the most demanding. This is due to the fact that I did not prepare carefully for this section. Additionally, English pronunciation is not as easy as we have been thinking. It is a big challenge. Is it necessary for candidates to take the trial test before taking the real test? NT: It is advisable for IELTS candidates to take part in the IELTS trial test before taking the real one. It is not too hard to see that after the trial test, candidates will get more experience for a better real test. As we know, you obtain score 8 for reading and 7.5 for listening, so how did you practice to have good “eyes” and delicate “ears” to achieve well in these two sections? NT: Actually, I do not have any special strategies to get high marks for those. For Reading Sub-test, I have a habit of reading from one to two pages of an interesting book or novel in English before bedtime. Furthermore, I also bring a newspaper or magazine with me to read when having spare time that or else be wasted. For listening section, I usually spend time watching TV programmes and films, listening to radio programmes – even English songs on Youtube

By : Ngô Thị Minh

For candidates taking the test, time is the biggest enemy. What tips that you apply to manage time effectively during the test? NT: The best tip I can give to all candidates is saving their time during the test that they should deal with everything as fast as they can. For examples: turning pages in the answer sheets quickly and so on For most of candidates going in for IELTS, writing seems to be the toughest skill to perform and achieve a high score. As I know, you got a quite good score 6.5 for that skill. According to you, how should candidates prepare for IELTS writing subtest? NT: I suggest spending more time preparing than testing. When you test yourself, you find out what your level is, but you do not learn anything new. You will not improve if you only write test essays. Before writing an essay, spend time studying the topic and preparing your ideas, opinions and academic vocabulary.

What should the candidates develop when practising English? NT: Besides enriching thier vocabulary to perform well in the four sub-tests, memory for English needs developing. In the Reading Test, the more they remember what they have just read, the more they can answer their questions quickly and precisely, but at least the words can be read again. However, in Listening Test the biggest problem is that they can not go back, and the tape is only played once. Therefore, candidates usually miss the words that they have heard. This requires them to have a good memmory for English. If they want to, try the following exercise. Using the pause button on your tape recorder, repeat or write down the sentences spoken in the passage. Gradually increase the length of what they repeat. No matter how many exact words that they can repeat, just how many words that they can remember. According to you, what is the key to success in IELTS? NT: Well, as what I experienced, following a regular study plan is the secret of being successful. I mean you should make a strict

plan that you can spare time to practise English for all four Sub-tests. You should not focus only on your weakest areas or the skills that you are interested in. Take a rest between tasks to reset your mind and NT: To tackle the feeling of being nervous, avoid stress. Remember that working candidates should go to the testing towards your goal slowly, steadilly and centre earlier at least 30 minutes. Then, regularly is a formula to the victory. Most of candidates feel nervous in the day taking the test; do you have any general advice for them to overcome this fearness?

they can walk around the waiting room to take the fresh air and gradually they will get better. Why don’t they try chewing gums?. That what I did to keep calm.

Thank you so much for the interview. Hope you achieve more brilliant success in the future.

English Some interesting methods used in teaching English for children You love children so much and you will be a primary school teacher in the future but you are worried about how to teach English effectively for children. In the knowledge sharing corner, students who come from English Education –K33 of The School of Foreign Languages will help you get best methods used in teaching English for children.Below are some interesting and useful experiences of the future primary school teachers Different from the two girls, the humorous boy of English Education K33, Loc Van Thieu pays a lot of attention to Story-telling method. According to Thieu, Story-telling is an interesting method that teacher should use.

Hoang Thi Dieu, a final year student who is learning Primary English Teaching shares that using songs is one the most popular methods in teaching English for children. She likes this method so much because it is not only easy but also effective to teach English. In her opinion, most of children love singing and they are so sensitive with music that whenever they hear melody of a song, they can swing following that melody. Therefore, using songs in teaching English to children helps them remember vocabulary easily. Besides, children mainly learn language through imitation. They can imitate native speaker to pronoun words, emphasize stress and make intonation. However, to get the best effect, she emphasizes that teacher should use appropriate and simple songs in teaching.

The second method is using games in lessons. Many researchers who have studied about using games in teaching English demonstrate that this method brings a lot of benefits for children to learn English. No one can deny that using games creates real contexts in which children use English to communicate in a natural way. Cao Thi Ngoan who is a primary school teacher in summer volunteer program shares her experience that if a teacher starts a lesson with a game in warm up part, this will help motivate students a lot because the atmosphere at the beginning in class is very important, when students are motivated, they will involve positively in the whole lesson. Also, if teacher ends the

lesson by a game, this will help students relax after hard-studying hours. Furthermore, students have a chance to review the lesson (vocabulary, grammar structures, pronunciation). She suggested some games teacher should use in teaching such as bingo, slapping board, hang man or cross-word…

At home, children love listening to stories told by their parents before going to bed. For children, stories is a fantasy world. They are attracted by characters like fairy, princess, prince or animals, etc. Having realized this, teacher can combine lessons with stories. This method helps children not only practice listening and speaking skills but also get moral lessons. That is because each story has its own meaning which often educates children to love their family, friends, nature…. The stories will become more attractive and interesting if the teacher uses colorful pictures, various gestures to illustrate. After telling stories, teacher should create situations in which children can perform their ability by retelling, role playing the stories.

Each student has their own methods to teach English effective for children. However, the main factors which help you be successful teacher is your creation and passion in teaching. Hope that experiences from students of English Education –K33 will help you be more confident to become successful teachers in the future.
