English for Academic Staf (Batch 1) just Finished

Congratulations to the first batch of our staff-students, learning English to prepare for the AUN QA accreditation, on successful completion of their English Course. The course took place over two months and 21 hours of instruction in speaking, listening, reading, and writing. All of the participants demonstrated enthusiasm for the program.  Due to this enthusiasm, the first phase of this program was a resounding success. The teacher of the English Course is our native lecturer, Christopher C. Cason.

The participants, regardless of their previous English language training or skill level, acted fearlessly to increase their abilities.  They faced a wide range of activities, including written exercises in technical grammar, role plays to increase their fluency, and presentations to their peers; demonstrating a great deal of confidence.  This confidence was constantly tested and on display as the participants stepped up and tacked each task.  Even more impressive, they demonstrated consistent progress despite getting almost no instruction in the Indonesian language.  It was a true English immersion course with a native English speaker and the students embraced the challenge.  Their confidence and commitment will pay off as essential contributions to the upcoming accreditation of the UII Faculty of Law.
